CD Sunday - Christmas

Good morning everyone. I'm late posting today as we have the grandchildren staying for the weekend and my normal routines have been disrupted slightly!!!!

There is lots of news this week before I tell you about my card. Firstly we  must say a very big thank you to last months guest, Kevin, who made some fantastic cards for us.

There is also some sad news as we are losing one of our founder team members. Wendy M was the one who had the idea for this challenge blog and was instrumental in setting it up.  Wendy used to challenge herself to do a cd card every Sunday and this is where the idea and the choice of day came from. Thank you from me for the opportunity to be part of such a lovely team Wendy.  I join my fellow teamies in wishing you well in new ventures and look forward to seeing you in blog land.

As this is the start of another month (where does the time go?) we have another guest with us, Sue and we have an amazing card from her to start off the month so I hope you will join me in welcoming her to our happy team. 

We have a sponsor for our challenge this week as it's the first Sunday in the month. Caroline of Carolines Digi Stamps, has has offered a prize of a digi kit of the winner's choice so I hope you will join in and be in with the chance of winning.  

We were each given one of the Christmas Digi kits and this is what I have used to produce my design for this week.

The folder I had to work with was Happy Hollydays. I used all the elements in CAP and then added a backing paper, punched around the page with a Martha Stewart snowflake design and mounted the whole thing onto a 7 x 7 card. The only other thing I added was the gingham bow.

I hope you like it and I can't wait to see what you make for us this week with our theme of Christmas. xx
