Think of a Number - CD Sunday

Well here we are nearly at the end of another year. I really don't know where the time goes! We have had some great challenges at CD Sunday  this year and some great guests too. This week is no exception and our challenge this week is 'Think of a Number'.

I chose to make a card for my friend's son who was 18 recently.

I used a backing paper from Crafters Companion Boys 'n' Girls CD for the background and also stamped the H and B onto it as well. Those letters are from a set by Dimension Fourth.

The team and our guest Lynn have all made some lovely cards to inspire you.

Here's to 2013,  let's hope its a good one with lots of great crafting and blogging. Wishing you all health and happiness.

All About Birthdays - CD Sunday

Well here it is ...... Merry Christmas! The last challenge before Christmas at CD Sunday and this week I have used a Mabel Lucie Attwell CD by Katy Sue Designs. I made this for our receptionist at work. I love these images and reminds me of a book I had as a child. :-)

I do hope that you have time to join us this week with a card that is 'All About Birthdays'.

Have a good Christmas everyone. xx

Merry Kissmas

I'm entering this card in the Spectrum Noir Challenge - Winter Blues.

I've used the following Spectrum Noir pens to colour in this SWALK rubber stamp:

FS1, FS6, FS8
TN1, TN2, TN3
IB1, IB2
TB1, TB2, TB3, TB4, TB6, TB9

I used some cordinations card for one of the layers (I used a Tim Holtz distress tool on the edges of this). I then cut a heart shape and passed this through an embossing folder and sanded the dots.

Thank you for looking.

CD Sunday - Teddy Bears

Morning everyone. Our theme this week at CD Sunday is Teddy Bears so I do hope you will join us this week and show us your favourite teddies. I've used Meadow Cottage Bears CD by Crafters Companion for my card. The pink roses are from a decoupage sheet that I've had for ages but they were just right for framing a new die cut that I got when I was at the NEC in November :-).

Winter Friends

I'm entering my card today in the December Crafters Companion Challenge - Winter Friends.

I've used a SWALK image that I have stamped and coloured using Spectrum Noir pens and matted this onto Spellbinder die cuts. The backing paper is from Christmas in Mulberry Wood CD and then sprayed with silver Spray & Sparkle. The border die cut is by Die sire. The other dies are from Marianne.

Thank you for looking.

CD Sunday - Frosty Days

Morning everyone!

First of all congratulations to Colleen for winning our sponsored challenge last week which was sponsored by The Art of Craft.

We have a very appropriate theme for you this week at CD Sunday - Frosty Days, I'm sure we have all had a few of those lately.

I used Robert Addams Christmas Trees CD for my main image. I used Spellbinder dies to make the double layer window. The dies are from Marianne and the stamped sentiment is Crafters Companion.

Stay warm on these chilly days. xx

LV1, LV2, HB1, HB2, HB3
CT1, PL1 PP1, CG1, CG2, LG4

I used a Spellbinder die to cut out the bauble and used Iced Spruce Distress Ink around the edges.

I used plain white card to cut these and then sprayed them with the pink iridescent spray by Crafters Companion. The base card is Kraft card.

CD Sunday - Oh Christmas Tree

Well here we are at the beginning of December. As it is a new month we have a lovely sponsor this week  at CD Sunday.

The winner this week will get a £10 voucher from The Art of Craft .

We have also said goodbye to our Guest DT member Pauline and for the month of December we have Lynn  joining us. You will find her blog here Linby.  

This week's theme has been chosen by Caz and here is my interpretation. I'm sure most of us still have some cards that need making so hopefully this challenge will help.

The CD I have used for my card this week is Joanna Sheen's Giordano Christmas Creations. I've matted and layered the image and added a couple of Marianne die cuts with ribbon to finish.

I am looking forward to visiting your blogs this week to see lots of Christmas trees.
