Animal Antics at CD Sunday

Good morning from a cold and blowy Wigan, perfect weather for crafting if you can. I have had to use a new blog because my old one has a problem and not many people can get past a pop up that keeps diverting to another advert page. So here I am starting again and hopefully my old friends will be able to find me!

This week over at CD Sunday it is my turn to choose a theme to challenge you all and I have chosen Animal Antics, so I hear you ask why have you used an owl but I have taken a bit of a liberty and added birds into the mix but at least it gives you a bit more scope with your makes!
For my card I have used the MCS cd Quintessential Country Garden, it's got some very pretty things on here and I love owls so thought I'd use one of the toppers to make my card. The backing paper is from the same cd and I have put it though an embossing folder to give it a bit of texture, I bought some very pretty lace recently and sometimes I look at it but don't want to use it but it's not irreplaceable so I've put some on this card.  The little frame around the topper is a spellbinders one called Fleur De Lis Squares which is quite pretty but most of it is covered up with the topper.  The flowers come from Wild Orchid and the other dies are Tattered Lace.

I hope you can join us and as usual the top three winner will get a little something in the post so it is worth having a go.


  1. Hi Jenny that is very pretty. I love the embossed background and that lovely lace.
