H is for....

The current challenge at CD Sundays is H is for....... 

For me, it could well be H is for HATE, as I chose to use the CD I love to hate, Joanna Sheen's Viva la Divas. For a CD that I keep saying I hate, it gets an awful lot of use, more than many of my favourites! I love the retro style images but I find it very hard to be creative with them. However since I got hooked on the Dylusions sentiment stamps, a lot of the images on the CD have had a new lease of life, and this Housewife doing the Housework with a Hoover is a prime example of that!

Instead of a backing paper from the CD, I chose a paper from the DCWV Stack 9 12 x 12 pad, because it reminds me of the wallpaper a great aunt used to have in the 1950s. I've used the main image printed out from the CD but with the sentiment deleted, as the topper on a gatefold card, with the Hoover cut out from the second large image and added with 3D glue to add a little dimension. Before printing, I deleted the sentiment, then once the card was made up, I added the stamped sentiment in its place. On the inside of the card I have added the three small images from the sheet, arranging them in "fifties flying ducks" formation - another reminder of my great aunt!
