"Everything Stops for Tea' with Joycelyn

Brrrrr Good morning from a bitterly cold Cyprus. We woke up to snow and ice this week not good when this is supposed to be sunny Cyprus. My friends tell me that we'll have wall to wall sunshine in 6 weeks which I can hardly believe at the moment. It's almost too cold to type up my blog. My hands are frozen even tho I have a gas fire next to me brrrr.

At CD Sunday we had some fab entries for 'Floral Frenzy'; which was my choice. I haven't yet decided on my top three as you've made it sooooo difficult for me with your frenzy of flowers. Keep checking out the blog to see if you're a winner and I'll be sending a little something to you from this very cold island!!

This fortnight it's Jocelyn's choice of theme, 'Everything Stops for Tea'. Now I'm sure you'll agree that this is a great choice. I am hoping to see lots of yummy cards. Please pop over to CD Sunday (link in side bar) and check out the DT's inspiration for won't be disappointed.

I was spoilt for choice when looking through my selection of CD's but finally I went with a lovely image from a CD by Joanne Sheen with artwork by Janet Kruskamp.

The main image and top background paper are from the CD. The background paper is supposed to be an insert but I loved the little image in the corner that I couldn't resist using it for the front of the card. The bottom is from some paper stock in my stash. I used a border punch and some pink paper from a Lidl's pad to create the edgings. The ribbon is some from my trusty ribbon box. Being a true crafter I never throw my ribbon bits out so there's usually a piece in there that matches my colour combo and this time it didn't let me down.....perfect match and length. The butterflies were made using a mini punch. The sentiment was also from the CD . As you can see I am going to use this card as my Mother's Day. Hope she'll like it and I don't forget I've made it early and then make another nearer the time lol.....old age is a bummer!!!

I hope you find time to pop over to CD Sunday and brush off those CD's and get crafting. I'm off to get warm now hopefully. You have no idea how difficult this has been to type with frozen fingers!!!
