Titanic Fascination

Happy Friday. I'm so excited as the mini series Titanic starts on Sunday. I've always had a fascination for this ship and after watching 'Inside The Titanic' last night I've re-read 'The Discovery Of The Titanic' today after nearly 25 years on the bookshelf. I really don't know why I'm so fascinated and the story may have something to do with my fear of open water (maybe that and the film Jaws!!).

In the book Walter Lord concludes that the mystique and appeal of the Titanic '... must be more universal, and the thought occurs that the Titanic is the perfect example of something we can all relate to: the progression of almost any tragedy in our lives from initial disbelief to growing uneasiness to final, total awareness. We are all familiar with this sequence, and we watch it unfold again and again on the Titanic - always in slow motion'.

Anyway that's not until Sunday. Today, on a cheerier note, I'm entering the Coffee, Chocolate & Cards Challenge which is fancy folds.

For my Easter card I've used Pink Petticoat Just Daisies paper in a lovely ocean colour. The bunny is from Pink Petticoat Big Hugs and has been paper-pieced using PP Big Dots. I've used an SVG file for the greenery and added a fluffy pom-pom for the bunny's cotton tail.

I'm also entering my card into the following challenges:

Bloggers - Easter
Crafty Ann's - Spring/Easter
Crafty Catz - Spring
Our Craft Lounge - Spring

Sweet n' Sassy Digi Challenge - Spring
