Downton Abbey

Are you a fan of Downton Abbey?  Sara Davies will be on Create & Craft TV from Monday to launch the exquisite new papercrafting collection from Crafter’s Companion.

This is one of my cards made using CD1 from the collection.


I have used elements from the Card Companions, the Earl of Grantham Designer Papers,  the Earl of Grantham Co-ordinating Papers and the Sentiments sections along with Crafter's Companion Neenah Desert Storm Kraft Card.


This is a stunning collection, you will be able to create beautiful projects in the style of your favourite characters so make sure you tune in at 8 am on Monday.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

4 Crafty Chicks Challenge 264 - Circle
Through the Purple Haze Challenge - Happy Birthday
Crafts Galore Encore September Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafty Girls Creations Challenge 4 - Always Anything Goes
Jo's Scrap Shack Challenge 106 - Boys to Men

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog and leave a comment, your company is much appreciated.

Oh love this one Pauline, I am really looking forwards to seeing this on Monday just keeping fingers crossed I can afford it lol.
Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog. Yes my holiday was fine, but, finding out the day before we travelled that my Knee was knackered and need a replacement was a bit of a downer and as the hotel was a 20 min walk into town caused a bit of a problem but we always make the best of our holidays

Oh wow Pauline this looks awesome the papers and that image are top notch, I must be truthful and say that I have never, ever watched Downton Abbey I know that it is a popular series but for some reason I have never tuned in to watch. I expect the new launch will be as popular as all CC CD's.

Gorgeous guy card and I love the image and colours you have chosen. The doily around the hat is perfect... it's not too girlie but rather serves as such an effective way to pull your eye in and focus on the image. Great card!

Gosh Pauline you've been busy this weekend?! You're putting me to shame.
Great card, it makes me want to don on my tap shoes and start dancing, top hat and tails style. I won't as it would be very scary! ;)
Great layering and lovely image.

Hugs Erika. x

I'm one of the few who haven't seen a single episode of Downtown Abbey, I missed out on the start and never started following. But my mother loves this series and I love what I've seen from the cd so far. I love to make masculine cards, so really nice to see it contains some elements fit for our males too.

Carol said...
