CD Sunday - Puss Cat

Our theme this week at CD Sunday is Puss Cat. I've used this lovely image and backing paper from Joanna Sheen's 'The Jayne Netley Mayhew Collection' CD. I've had the 'Meow' ribbon in my (rather large!) ribbon stash for quite some time and was pleased to be able to use it for my card this week. I also stamped one of Joanna Sheen's House Mouse meeces who is pointing at puss with a cheeky look on his face. I've used bakers twine for the bow and attached a paw print charm.

I hope you enjoy our theme this week. Our DT have come up with some great ideas this week.

I'm looking forward to visiting your blogs and seeing all your creations.

Bah Humbug - With Men in Mind

My card for the Bah Humbug challenge this week is for OH. I've used some decoupage featuring Hammy and Pammy Hamster by B-C-E. I used a new die by Memory Box for the snow flurries in the corners and spellbinder snowflake dies with card candy middles for the group of three snowflakes. I've also added some ribbon and heart shaped hat pins.

CD Sunday - Halloween

We've gone all spooky this week at CD Sunday for our Halloween theme and there are some hauntingly good cards by my fellow DT friends so why not go over and have a look and all the lovely inspiration this week.

I chose an image from Card Creations Plus CD called A Touch of Magic using the artwork of Linda Ravenscroft. There are some lovely designs and delicious backing papers etc. to choose from on this CD. The only extras I added are a few die cut embellishments.

Bah Humbug's challenge this week is Good to Eat and what could be better at Christmas than Mince Pies!

I've used one of the new SWALK Christmas stamps coloured with Promarkers and a backing paper from the SWALK Winter Cheer Collection CD. I've threaded bakers twine through a Spellbinders nested shape to finish.

CD Sunday - Around the World

At CD Sunday we have all been busy travelling "Around the World" for our theme this week. Please do go and have a look at the fabulous cards the rest of the design team have to inspire you this week.

For my card I took a 7" x 7" base card and covered this with with a sheet of backing paper from Robert Addams Vintage Transport CD. I then went around the edges with Distress Ink to give it an aged look. Any of the sepia colours would work well for this depending on how dark you want to go. I then printed the old postcard image from Peerless Designs Woodland Fantasy CD. The stamp on the postcard came from Vintage Transport. The other images have been stamped. I was particularly pleased with the passport which is an unmounted stamp by Rubbernecker that I purchased at the Alexander Palace show last month. I stamped it onto red card and embossed it with WOW powder in gold. I then used Distress Ink around the edges.

The Tilda stamp by Magnolia was coloured using a mixture of alcohol pens. The two tags are by LOTV and finished off with bakers twine.

I am looking forward to visiting your blogs to see all the different projects you create.

CD Sunday - Nature's Wonders

I can't believe that in all this glorious sunshine it is now October and I have some very exciting news.

Today I have joined the CD Sunday Design Team. Thank you so much ladies for asking me to join you and I would like to take this opportunity of sending my good wishes to Tess.

The first week of the month is a sponsored week as always and this month we have as our very generous sponsor Sue Wilson of Creative Expressions. The prize for the lucky winners whose names are drawn is a share of 4 sets of Christmas Stamps. We are very grateful to Sue for her generosity.Sue very kindly sent the design team a set of stamps called Nature's Wonders to play with and we have all come up with very different ideas, so why not head over to CD Sunday to join in the fun.

I used a mixture of the stamps to create my own backing paper by stamping all over a piece of plain white card in Dee Gru8ening's Shades of Turquoise Blending Blox. The lovely sentiment is from the same sheet of stamps.

I've used a lovely image from the Enchanted CD by Card Creations Plus which uses the artwork of Linda Ravenscroft for the main image.

I've used a Martha Stewart border punch, a cuttlebug die for the butterfly with cordinations card which I have sanded, some ribbons and a charm to finish off.

I'm looking forward to visiting you in blog land so dust off those CDs and I'll come and see you soon. :-)
