CD Sunday - 'G' is for........ chosen by moi

Good Morning.

I have scheduled  this posting as I will busy on Saturday down at a workshop with Judith Maslen.  It is a while since I have done any 'proper' parchment so I hope what we are given to do isn't very difficult.

Back to CD Sunday. As I said on the Blog we sometimes like to choose a letter or colour as the Challenge  theme to allow  a much wider choice of subject. 'Twas my turn to choose for this Challenge and I have chosen the letter 'G'.

Here is my card:
My 'G' is for a Garden Trug and this one is filled with beautiful flowers. My chosen CD was by Pamela West - Volume 2 - CD 1 (Joanna Sheen).  There are many pretty little paintings of all sorts on Pamela's CDs - which  are certainly worth having  in a any collection.
I didn't do anything ellaborate with the card.  Just a couple of mats on the matching background and a die cut sentiment. I wanted the image and the beautiful colours to say it all.  It has already been given to a friend on her birthday.

I had a fun week in Suffolk/Norfolk with my sister. Visiting new places and old favourites.  We did go to Houghton Hall in Norfolk.   A fabulous house.  I had watched  Philip Spencer's TV programme about his visit there before we went away and this decided me that I would like to visit.   We met the Chief Guide (who was featured in the programme) and he was a delightul man.  He very kindly allowed us to use the private lift (with him as 'lift attendant') to access the 1st floor as I have trouble climbing stairs.  The lift was an ancient cage like structure. My sister said it looked like something out of a Hercule Poirot story.  The staff could not have been nicer. In fact all the people we met in both counties were great.

Please don't forget that you can enter our Challenges via Facebook.  You can also enter by email to
I look forward to visiting your Blogs.
Take care and I will see you next time.

  6. Hi Carol, a great challenge theme this week. Your card is beautiful, I love the colours. I'll bet your friend was delighted to receive it. I have this cd-rom and really should give it an 'airing!'

    Glad you had a good time staying with your sister. I'm sure you both enjoyed catching up.
