Be inspired by a Song with CD Sunday

Good Sunday Morning to you all from Cyprus. Well it's not so sunny here at the moment. Winter has definitely come and it's bitterly cold up here in the hills. It's still fairly warm in the tourist area tho so if you are visiting soon prepare for pleasant days but very cold evenings.

Over at CD Sunday we've been challenged by Jocelyn to be inspired by a song. The song I have chosen is 'Flowers are red' by Harry Chapin. It's a folk song and he wrote it after a child came home from school with his report card saying he virtually wasn't conforming and did his own other words a creative child who's creativity was being suppressed by his old fashioned teacher. Please click on the link and enjoy and smile as you listen to this thought provoking song.

This is the card I created.

I made red ribbon flowers folding the ribbon and placing a punched out centre on top held it together with a brad. The tiny pot is a ceramic one that I've had in my stash since I began card making 13 years ago!!!. I added a string of gold beads around it to bling it up for Christmas. The flowers were mounted on white card that I had embossed with the dotty embossing folder. This was then double mounted on gold and red card to match the flowers. The two greetings are from the CD 'A Winter Walk in the Country' by Creative Crafting World.

I enjoyed this challenge and think you will too. I hope you will find time to pop over to CD Sunday and take a peep at which songs have inspired my teamies.

I look forward to seeing your creations and don't forget to use something from a CD to be in with a chance of winning a little something from Jocelyn. Don't forget to click on the You Tube link to listen to my song it's guaranteed to make you smile.


  1. Morning Wynn, well now i know where your song title came from and i popped over and watched the video, great card , love how you have made the flowers. xx

  2. Morning Wynn, hope it is better in Cyprus than here with us. It is raining and the connection isn't too clever this morning, think everyone on site is using the Internet. I will try your song link later.
    I love your design, the flowers are beautiful and they look stunning in the little ceramic pot. Super sentiments too. xx

  3. Very pretty flowers - very tactile. Thank you for the link to the song too. xx
