A Gardener's World

Pamela has chosen the theme this time around and what a lovely one it is. With all the lovely weather we have been having there is no better time to get out and enjoy the garden.

You will find all the details of what you need to do to enter this challenge over at CD Sunday Challenge Blog or you can enter on our facebook page. Please make sure to use something from a CD and let us know which one you have used. This does not need to be the whole project, it could just be a backing paper or sentiment from a CD. :-)

I can't remember where I got the little watering can die from. 

I hope you enjoy this theme as much as I have.

Things to Eat

Jane has chosen 'Things to Eat' for the CD Sunday Challenge this time.

To make this card I used:

House Mouse Triple CD Collection from Joanna Sheen for the main image and backing paper.
Dies are by Crafter's Companion Vintage Tea Party collection - Vintage doily and Sweet Tooth.

I cut the sweet tooth die in silver mirri card and put some acetate behind the domed top.

I really enjoyed this challenge from Jane and hope you will too.

Beautiful Blooms

It's my turn to chose the theme for CD Sunday Challenge Blog and my theme is 'Beautiful Blooms'.

I have made this card for a friend who is expecting a baby.

The backing paper is from The Dreamy Flowers Collection CD by Hinny Bop Designs. I printed one off in the original colour of yellow shades for the strip and paper piecing for the dress and also printed another sheet of the same design in monotone. All my layers are matted onto a charcoal coloured card. The oval dies are by Crea-Nest-Lies XXL No. 23. I used an Altenew stamp set for the central flowers and leaves and the little figure holding her baby bump is a rubber stamp by Crafty Sentiments Designs called Welcome Little One.

I then die cut a piece of shrink plastic (something I haven't used for ages) and stamped it with a wooden stamp I've had for a very long time along with some leaves from the Altenew set. I then die cut a few leaves from a Britannia die which is a strip of leaves using some sticky backed paper.

I do hope you will craft along with us and join in this challenge. For all the details of how to enter and also our few little rules we would like you to follow just go on over to the CD Sunday Challenge Blog.

Happy 8th Birthday to CD Sunday Challenge Blog

Its time for the Birthday Challenge at CD Sunday and on the 18th April the challenge will be 8 years old! As it is Carol's birthday this month as well she has chosen our theme and she has designed a sketch for us to follow/interpret.

Here it is:

I hope you will have lots of fun with this and don't forget to use some element from a crafting CD and tell us which CD you used. For more inspiration do go to CD Sunday Challenge Blog and see what my fellow teamies have been doing.

Here is my card:

I used The Lace Collection CD by Creative Crafting World for my backing papers which I mounted onto a pretty shade of blue card


Rub down foiled butterflies from Crafters Companion
Embossed Jug and Doily embossing folder by Joanna Sheen
Die cut stitches ovals by Creative
Flower stems and fronds by Elizabeth crafts
The flowers are made using a small floral die which I think was from Britannia. The top part of the flowers I cut by hand from the lilac backing paper with tiny gems added for the centres.

I am looking forward to visiting your blogs to see what you do with Carol's sketch. Don't forget if you don't have a blog you can also enter via our Facebook page. There are some fabulous prizes to be won so don't forget to join us in celebrating our 8th birthday.
