"Bloomin Marvellous"

Good Morning peeps. Well it's a wee bit cooler here in Cyprus.....well cooler in comparison to the mad hot Summer.
 Over at CD Sunday there's another challenge waiting for you. It was my turn to choose the theme last time and what happened!!! Some fab entries for 'Pearls and Lace' but a bit sparse. Thought you'd like a girly card but I got it wrong.....smacked hands for Wynn lol!!

This time it's Jocelyn's turn to choose the theme and she says' Bloomin Marvellous!!'. Well that means all those fab flower CDs that I know you have hiding away in your craft room. So dust them off and start creating please. Lets have a Bloomin good show this week lol!!

This the CD I chose to make my inspirational make for you. I used a Debbi Moore CD Shabby Chic Vintage Rose. One section of the CD gives you templates for giftware so that made this an easy make.

I simply printed it off, scored, folded and adhered it with hi tac tape and Voila!!!.....finished. The matching gift tag was also on the CD. The top of the bag folded over and I covered a clothes pin with some of the same paper as the bag to make a fastener for the bag. I usually punch holes in the top and thread ribbon through for a fastener but somehow I felt this worked better and it avoids getting the 'holes' out of alignment.

So an easy make this week. To see what the rest of the team and our lovely guest designers have created to inspire you grab a cuppa and pop over to CD Sunday challenge blog (link in sidebar).

I look forward to your comments. They are always very much appreciated and put a wee smile on my face. I hope you have a crafty week and have fun!!!
