Getting Excited - Off on our hols this Sunday

Getting really excited as we are off this Sunday to spend a fabulous two weeks on our narrowboat Tranquility. Aiming to cruise from Alvechurch, our home Marina to Gloucester and down the Sharpness canal.

And Yippee..... the weather looks as though it will settle down and we will have sun and warm stuff for the whole time - life doesn't get any better.

Joanna Sheen's new CD - Elegant Fans

I just love the elegance of fans and this new CD is just gorgeous. There are not just fans with a vintage theme but also fresh modern versions as well. All the designs would work well for cards for ladies of any age.
This card I made with an image from a My Craft Studio CD which I laminated for a different effect , printed off one of the man fans from the CD and added that together with some ribbon and a small spray of cream roses.
This card is to be added to my box of cards for the special people in my life.

I made this card for my monthly card swap on the Joanna Sheen forum. The image is from the Pamela West cd by Joanna which is a delightful cd full of water coloured images. As a cat mad person I just love this image. I used a pearlescent stardream card in a very deep plum colour for the mats and layers and added a couple of flowers to the front to finish.

Inside is a small envelope containing a bookmark to match, finished off with some deep purple ribbon.
