A la mode

The challenge on CD Sunday challenge blog this week is "A la mode". I have been meaning to enter this challenge for the last few weeks but unfortunately Saturday lunchtime came around and I still hadn't done it, but made I've it this week. After all this is a challenge made for me and for my Ooh la la CD rom Shoes 1. I've added a digi from Create with TLC and coloured it with promarkers to tone with the shoe image. I then used some vellum, I hoard it because I never know what to do with it, but this just hit me as being so right for this card. I punched a border along one edge of the mat and used my new to me "cosmic shimmer" glue to finish the centre of each flower.
I was supposed to be driving to Gloucester today, I took the decision last night not to go and to cancel the meeting, as I was driving three other people - wondering today if it was the right one as the roads don't seem as bad, but I was putting safety first and for those who would be travelling from the south to meet us in Glos tomorrow. So, an evening of craft for me - hurrah (that wasn't the reason I cancelled - honestly!)

Yoyu are so prolific at the moment Lynn I just can't keep up with you! What a cute image that shoe is - I love violets. I think you did the right thing cancelling your meeting - it would have been horrible stuck in the snow all night! We're lucky here - not a single snowflake!

Hi Linby. I think your decision was very sensible. It is so easy to wise after the event. And the chance to do something crafty means your time wasn't wasted - especially as you made such a gorgeous card. I love the background in particular. My sort of papers.
Thank you for joining in with us again at Cd Sunday.
