It's our BIRTHDAY at CD Sunday!

Now we are Six!

We have something special going on this time for our challenge. CD Sunday first started on 18 April 2010 and as it is our birthday this week we are doing something a bit different for this challenge.


This will be one of our easiest challenges ever and there are lots of prizes available. Here is a photo of what is on offer from me -

Pack of 4 x 6 cards and envelopes
Merry Christmas ribbon
The Snowman 5 x 7 embossing folder
Marianne design stamp - Snoesjes
Classic Christmas CD by Katy Sue Designs

If you visit my fellow teamies they will be showing their prizes along with their favourite card. Full details of how to enter and be in with a chance of winning are on the CD Sunday Challenge Blog so why not pop over and take a look. Don't forget to let us know which CD you used for your all time favourite entry. If you are a newbie there are details of how you can join in too.

Here is my favourite card:

I went back to 18th May 2014 for this one. Our challenge theme was 'One for the Boys' and I used  Polkadoodles' CD Pretty Tuff.

I've matted the backing paper onto red card to start. I then took a Crafter's Companion Embossilicous folder with Co-ordinations card and sanded the image back. This then also went onto the red card. The large note is a Marianne die and the smaller notes are a Tattered Lace die. There are some great images on this CD and this is just one of them. I cut around him leaving a tiny white border and mounted him on foam pads.

I then took some of the Clarity stamp word chain stamps to stamp direct onto my card using a black Versafine ink pad. I bet some of you are now thinking 'she must be mad stamping onto a finished card' but I did it that way around so that I could see exactly where I wanted the words. :-). 

I've picked this card as my favourite for the following reasons:

1.  This was one of my challenge selections.

2.  It uses a CD, dies, an embossing folder and stamping (I like to incorporate lots of things into my crafting - it helps to justify all the things I keep buying!).

3.  I particularly like the use of red on this card as it really 'pops'. 

4.  My stamping direct to card was a success! Yay me!

Which will your favourite be??????????

Get Well Wishes

Well I'm blown away by the lovely entries for my challenge at CD Sunday over the last two weeks. It will take me a while to choose my Top 3.

It is Sue's turn to set the challenge for the next two weeks and she has chosen Get Well Wishes. So many people I know are not feeling well at the moment so this is very appropriate.

Here is my card.

I used a large Spellbinder die to cut a circle that I then folded in half to make a rocker card.

The image, backing paper and sentiment are all printed from Joanna Sheen House Mouse CD Volume One. I used a couple of dies to layer the decoupage onto - the open lacy one from Crafter's Companion and the circular one from Tonic. 

I do hope that little house mouse is feeling better soon. The rocker card will help him sleep lol.

For anyone not feeling too well at the moment I wish you better very soon. xx
