CD Sunday - 'Let's go Fishing' - chosen by Margaret

Although I know that women do go fishing I think this is probably an opportunity to make one of those difficult 'male' birthday cards .

Firstly -  thank yous to all those that entered into Wynn's 'Celebrate in Style' challenge and now hopefully you will be inspired to come fishing with us at CD Sunday.

Secondly -  for my card I used a download that I have had for a long time - from Alan and Barry.  This was a folder of blue and white willow type plate  designs. To go with the download I found  a matching background for the matting layer on a Funky Hand -  Colour me Happy CD. (Jovial Man folder).  I also used the same background paper to die cut the bamboo shoots and fish embellishmants.

Here is my card:

I added Navy Blue Nuvo Crystal Drops to the tree.  The blooms/fruit are not as round as I would have liked them to be. I am nowhere near as clever with the Nuvo drops as my fellow teamie Pamela.

Whilst posting this for scheduling I remembered that I had made a 'fishing' card for my cousin's birthday  this month. This is a cartoon I found on the internet and I just added a border and his name. Just a bit of fun. I do not know to whom I should attribute this  but I acknowledge his or her work.

Please join in with us and I look forward to visiting your Blogs. Please don't forget that you can join in via our Facebook page if you haven't a Blog -  or send in by email at

Have fun.



  1. Beautiful oriental card in the traditional blue and white, loads of detail in the tiny finishing touches, what patience to add the nuvo drops to the tree, loved my card, thank you

  2. Two wonderful cards Carol I love them both but am edging slightly more towards the humorous card, I know Hubby would love that one.

  3. Beautiful, I really love your willow pattern card. I'm a big fan of the Willow Pattern and you've reminded me I've not made anything in that style for ages!

  4. Love the willow pattern card Carol but my favourite is the Moses one LOL! The Nuvo drops aren't too bad. The few that have joined together were because they're too close together.

  5. I love your first card Carol, it's such a peaceful image.
    Also I couldn't help but laugh at the Moses card. This one would suit my stepdad.
    Best Wishes

  6. A really pretty card Carol. I love the blue and white and the gems set it off perfectly. x
