CD Sunday - No image or photo - chosen by Sue

Good Morning.
I don't think we have had this theme before at CD Sunday - so well  done to Sue for choosing something new.  I must admit that these are my sentiments now but when it was first chosen there were a few gulps and some inter team discussions.  The team took it all on board and I think they have all  come up trumps.  Don't forget we are now 8 at Team CD Sunday so more blogs to visit and leave a little 'love' please  - which I believe is the expression.

My own contribution is so different to anything I have done before.  I saw a die set by Penny Black advertised on a favourite site of mine - Crafts U Love and it was the picture on the front of the packaging that caught my eye.  I kept seeing these dies but didn't buy them until they were in a sale and then snatched them up and here is what I did with them.

The basic idea is similar to the packaging picture but I have changed the coloring, the size and added the sentiment.  I decided that my lovely friends up in Northumberland might like this for their Wedding Anniversary  which was 4 days ago.
The CD I used is a Carol Ann's Studios CD - Glitz 'n'Bitz for the polka dot background paper.

I thought that I would like to try this concept using parchment so I made this card:
The border - which was a little tricky to say the least and took a couple of days - was by Florence Holmes and comes from her CD -  'Say it with Flowers and Lace'.  The card is pink glitter card which was also used for the die cut flowers and the stalk and sentiment used white glitter card.
So two cards - very different - with no image or photo.  At CD Sunday we are all looking forward to seeing what you can create - so please join us.


  1. thank you for your wonderful warm welcome Carol, love these die cuts and the way you have used them 2 beautiful cards

  2. Thank you Carol for the lovely welcome to the team, yes I have taken a deep breath now and feeling better, I have just shown him my card on the site so hopefully now he's got the idea,
    Your two cards are gorgeous and both are delightful,
    You can now sit back back and relax with your first post done and dusted off so to speak with all eight teamies on there.
    Have a good week

  3. Two fab cards Carol and both so different. The first one is a really interesting creation and one I may be just to show my crafters!!! I love the delicate lace edging on your Pergamano one. Did I tell you we recently 'inherited' a lot of Pergamano goodies from a lady who has a sight prob so giving up. Well needless to say it's still in the cupboard unused. We could do with your expertise to show us the way forward!!! Do you plan a trip here anytime soon!! Hugs Wynn xx

  4. Two great examples of the theme Carol. Not as difficult as it seems at first. I'm enjoying my crafting so much at the moment - helped by being chosen for the DT. So thanks once again.

  5. Morning Carol, I'm so pleased you also made a parchment card to go with your lovely first card, really does showcase what can be achieved without using a main image.

  6. Two fabulous cards Carol, such pretty colours on the first one and your parchment is perfect as always, so delicate.
    Thank you for the warm welcome, I am delighted to be part of the team.

  7. Two very different but equally fabulous cards Carol. Your parchment work is always lovely and I enjoy seeing what you have been creating. xx
