Past Times

Our Jane has chosen Past Times as her theme for CD Sunday this time and we have had some fun with this one. I do hope you will too.


I love these little characters and was so pleased when Katy Sue Designs did two CDs featuring the artwork of Mabel Lucie Attwell a few years ago. (Just looked on the back of the box and it says 2012! Time flies when you are having crafting fun :-) ).

I used a distress ink pad around the backing paper to age it and then roughed up the edges with a little gadget designed for the purpose. The geranium  and delphinium dies are from Joanna Sheen. The flower pots are one of the original Sizzix dies. I even used some flower soft on the delphiniums.

My fellow teamies have some lovely makes to show you so do make sure you go and visit. x

Anything Goes

Time for a new CD Sunday challenge again! Carol has chosen this time and decides that Anything Goes!


I have to say I loved doing this card for my step daughter Becky. Lots of scope to play with Carol's choice of Anything Goes so I went for it!

I used a backing paper from The Lace Collection CD from Creative Crafting World. A great CD with lots of lovely lacy designs that are useful for so many occasions. For the next layer I played with stamps and distress inks and then splashed some water at it! I then took some white card and stamped it with a great stamp and sentiment by Sheena Douglas, available from Crafter's Companion. I used a stitched effect die to cut the square image out. The stamping is done in brown Momento ink and coloured using alcohol marker pens. I finished the hair using Spectrum Noir pencils. The goggles have Glossy Accents to look like glass. I then used copper card to cut out the pipes, cogs and flowers. The only other ingredients were white button brads and clear gems for the centres of the cogs and flowers.

I'm looking forward to see what everyone else makes for this challenge. Don't forget to visit CD Sunday Challenge Blog for details of how to enter.

Celebrating in Style

We were in Waterford Castle, Ireland over the weekend helping to celebrate the wedding of George and Hannah. George is my dear friend Sue's son. We had a whole weekend with friends that I have known since school days. Happy days!

Celebration

Ooo it's my turn to choose the theme for CD Sunday today.

I decided it's time to celebrate so let's see what special occasions you have or will be celebrating with us.


I decided to celebrate an anniversary with this card.

I used Click Print Go Classic Art Deco by My Craft Studio for the view from the window. The couple and the furniture inside the room are dies by Tattered Lace. I used Spellbinders large square dies to make the silver frame and layered it onto lilac and then black card before attaching to an 8 x 8 ready folded card. The purple and cream paper is from a deco paper pack I purchased from Joanna Sheen some years ago.

I do hope you will have fun with this challenge - there are so many occasions to celebrate and we would love to see your ideas and creations.

Up the Garden Path


A new month already and we have a new challenge over at CD Sunday. This time is was Margaret's turn to choose the theme. Let's all go 'up the garden path' to see what we can find!

My papers and image all come from Journey to Wonderland II by Debbi Moore. There are some lovely whimsical images on this CD. The die cut sentiment if from Crafter's Companion. I used some little punches to cut out the heart, club, diamond and spade in black and red card and then glazed them.

I do hope you will have fun with this challenge.

Sun, Sand or Sea

As we are in the middle of a heatwave here this week's challenge chosen by Wynn is very appropriate - especially as I live by the sea :-)


I've used a 5 x 7" card for this design. The backing paper and images are from Holly Pond Hill CD by Joanna Sheen. I've matted everything onto blue card and them added Marianne dies for the lighthouse, shells and seagull.

Talking of seagulls we have lots here at the moment and all the fluffy chicks have just hatched. We have some that live on the flat roof at the back of the office that have been adopted by the girls I work with. The parents even knock on the window for biscuits at coffee time! They have been coming back for about 3 years now.

Anyway I digress - my fellow teamies have some fab things to show you so please visit CD Sunday Challenge Blog to check out how to enter.

Shabby Chic

The weeks are flying by so quickly and already it's time for a new challenge at CD Sunday.

Meg has chosen Shabby Chic for us this time around and I hope you will have as much fun with it as we have.


I've used a 7 x 10 card for my base. The images and backing papers are from Debbi Moore's Shabby Chic Vintage Flowers. For the die cut flowers I used parchment with tiny button brads for the centres. I added some cream lace and organza edged satin ribbon for the bow. I love this ribbon it is so soft to the touch. I added a little flower charm and some die cut butterflies.

Now all you need to do is go over to CD Sunday Challenge Blog to find out what you need to do to join in.
