CD Sunday - Something beginning with 'H'

Now this one is my choice of theme which  I did choose  before I thought of what I was going to do.  I made the card some time ago and so enjoyed the making of it and the effect,  that I have been dying to post it and see if you all like it as much as I do.

Here it is:

I loved the series of 6 Farmyard stitch cards that I purchased and completed from Stitching Cards so I was pleased to see that they had added this wonderful Highland Cow to their patterns.  Isn't he or she wonderful?  I think a 'She'  as she has a flower in her mouth and I have given her some butterflies.  I found the fabulous tartan backing paper on Ooh La La's CD - The Paula Oakley Collection.  The paper seemed to be just right in colour and theme. The sentiment die was a new purchase from Tattered Lace but I added the butterflies to 'hold' it up.
I showed this to my son and he said it reminded him of Ermintrude from the Magic Roundabout. Do you remember her?  If not here she is
My fellow teamies and our guests - Meg and Pauline -  have made some wonderful cards so please go visiting.  The links to their Blogs can be found above their cards on the CD Sunday Blog.

So many things begin with 'H' so please come and join us.  Think of those HOLLY cards you will be making for Christmas and as long as there is something from a CD somewhere on the card then it will qualify for our Challenge.
See you when I come calling.


  1. I love this card, I saw this design on stitching cards, and nearly brought them. She is great love the flower in her mouth,
    I never had time to make the card last time, spending all my time on my Pinterest challenge, hopefully will get a card made for this weeks challenge.
