CD Sunday Dance

I used Strictly Card Dancers CD for this line dancing card. The backing paper is a sheet from a Joanna Sheet pad of A5 papers that I have had for ages and I used a plastic template for the little boots. The bow is made using plaited bakers twine. I had fun with this one and I hope you do too.

Don't forget to tell us which CD you have used over on the CD Sunday Challenge Blog and I look forward to coming and visiting you. Don't forget to visit my teamies and our GDT Wynn this week.

I've just got a new computer and although it is really fast I still have a few things to get to grips with - scanning my cards being one of them!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway I'd like to enter this in the HMFMC147 - Anything Goes/With a Charm.

I used the new Joanna Sheen House Mouse triple CD for this image and backing paper for a friend at work who is moving to a new office in a couple of weeks.

CD Sunday - S is for ......

Our theme at CD Sunday this week is S is for .... so you can choose anything that begins with S :-). I chose Summer, Sea and Sailboat and used a backing paper and image from A Touch of Elegance CD by Cupcake Crafting. I decided to make a matching gift bag to go with this one. These are great little white bags with handles that are nice if you are giving a little present to go with the card and are also from Cupcake Crafting which changed its name recently to Creative Crafting World.

I used a mixture of Spell binder and Marianne dies and added some card candi and ribbon to finish.

Our GDT Wynn has more to show you this week so do drop by and say hello to her and my fellow teamies.

Kimono - CD Sunday

Good morning! I hope you all enjoyed last week's theme. I will be choosing my top three and the result will be posted on the CD Sunday Challenge Blog later in the week so please do pop over there for this week's challenge which was chosen by Caz and is Kimono.

I chose an image from Joanna Sheen's  Oriental Dreams CD. I used some of the left over backing paper to make some paper beads that I threaded onto bakers twine. I used gold mirri card to layer the paper onto and also used a lovely big Spellbinder die for the frame to the main image. Just to add a little more gold I used a quickie glue pen to pick out parts of the image and used a sheet of gold foiling over it. :-) To finish off I attached an oriental good luck charm. 

We still have our GDT Wynn with us so please pop over to her blog and see the beautiful card she has for us this week, and don't forget my fellow teamies too they would love you to visit.

Father's Day

This is the card I made for our three cats Daisy, Bramble and Poppy to give to my husband for Father's Day!

I used Joanna Sheen's House Mouse Triple CD Collection for the image and backing paper. I have used dies by Spellbinders, Marianne and Britannia for the die cuts.

I'm entering this one in the following challenges:

Fine Plumage - CD Sunday

This week it is my turn to choose the theme at CD Sunday and I've gone for Fine Plumage. Feel free to interpret any way you like as long as you use something from a CD.

Here is mine:

I used Frou Frou from Crafters Companion for the backing paper and the paper piecing on the girls dresses. The main image is a rubber stamp that compliments the CD. The frame is a die cut. I used a petal pairs punch for the inner petals of the flowers and a left over piece of the backing paper.

Don't forget to visit our GDT Wynn at  Sunshine Cards and Craft, and all my fellow teamies who have made some wonderful cards this week.

Faithful Friends - CD Sunday

Well here we are at the start of June - would someone care to tell the weather! We have had a little sunshine but we want more.

As it is a new month we have Ohh La La sponsoring us this week and all the team have been given images from their new CD to work with. I had this little chap - isn't he sweet. I've used one of the woven backing papers and matted him onto some black card. The paw print ribbon is from my stash. I used a small paw print stamp to emboss the three paw prints and used a small circular die to cut them out. The bow is a die by Lil' Inker Designs.

I have been away for a couple of days and didn't have a lot of time before I went so had to post quickly so now I am back and have a little more time I would like to welcome our GDT at CD Sunday for this month, Wynn - you will find her here  Sunshine Cards and Craft . 

And our lovely sponsor:
