Father Christmas

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas .... la lala la ......

This week Meg has chosen our theme of Father Christmas for the CD Sunday Challenge. You will find all the details and how to enter here.

The winner of our special sponsored challenge last time will be announced soon so don't forget to keep checking the CD Sunday Challenge Blog.

Now on to Father Christmas ...

I've used Christmas with the Wrinklies CD by La Pashe for the main image and  Raymond Briggs Father Christmas by Crafter's Companion for the backing paper.

Dies used:

Merry Christmas - Crafters Companion
Snow Globe - Creative Expressions Sue Wilson die
Beaded Circle Frames - Elizabeth Dies

The holly leaves, berries and snow flakes came free with a magazine ages ago and the gems are on a roll which can be snipped to the shape/size required. I used PVA glue to stick them down. 

I hope you join us for this challenge - it's a good kick start to all those Christmas cards if you haven't started already!

Our theme at CD Sunday this week is PAWS. This is a special challenge chosen by Sharon Duncan - please pop over to CD Sunday Challenge Blog for full details of our new challenge and how to enter.

Without further ado here is my card:

The image and backing papers are from Sharon Duncan's CD Playful Pups.

I used an octagon score board to make the larger backing shapes and Spellbinder dies for the smaller ones. The 'grass' is a Marianne die, the swirls are from Elizabeth Crafts and the flowers (my new favourites) are by Sweet Dixie.

Country Living

Time for a new theme at CD Sunday Challenge Blog and this time we are County Living with Pamela. What a great theme choice, I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone does with this one.

Here is my interpretation using the following CDs:

Nostalgia Collection CD by Joanna Sheen - main images
Printable Gingham, Polka Dot, Check & Tartan Backing Papers CD by Robert Addams

I used a 7 x 10" base card and matted the backing paper and images onto toning card. I then used bakers twine and card candi to embellish. 

If you visit CD Sunday Challenge Blog you will find lots of inspiration from my fellow teamies and also everything you need to know about how to enter - don't forget to use something from a CD and let us know which one. It may be one we haven't seen before and we all love to shop ! lol.
