Very Exciting News!

I'm absolutely delighted to be able to tell you that I recently applied for a place on the La Pashe design team and heard this week that I've been accepted. I heard a few days ago, and shared my news on Facebook, but I really wanted to announce it on the blog on an entry for CD Sundays, because it is by joining in with this challenge since my blog started that I've learned that CDs and decoupage can be used for so very, very much more than the "print a background and a design, layer design up and stick on background" that I'd thought of them as being useful for before.

So thank you to the CD Sundays design team and participants for your ideas, inspiration support and comments.

OK, Oscar speech over, time to get on with this week's challenge  Ribbons and Bows. And it won't surprise you that I've celebrated by using a La Pashe CD, The very Best of La Pashe 2012. I wanted to do something that would be suitable for Valentine's Day, and the "Mobility Love" design from the Decoupage Plus section looked ideal.

But being stubborn, I wanted to make it Pretty rather than Witty, so I've prettied it up with ribbons and a lace doyley.


  1. Very well done on your DT post for La Pashe Jane. This is a great card, love that background paper.

  3. Well done Jane on your new DT post, as Carol said I'm also glad we were some sort of inspiration for you giving you the edge over other applicants.
    Now this is a great card blending humour with prettiness, it does work well together and I wouldn't have thought of it. Thank you for your support at CD Sunday.
