Birthday Celebrations

It's our Birthday, we are 6 on the 18th 
 we are celebrating with a fun and easy challenge, and there are super prizes up for grabs, this one is so easy to enter all you have to do is select your favorite make, card or project that you have previously entered into the CD Sunday challenge, Back Link it and the design team will select the winners . Now we know that some of you may be New to CD Sunday but don't worry there is also a prize for the best new comer so get your makes entered.
The design team have also pick a project that we have previously made as inspiration for a challenge.
I was first a guest designer for CD Sunday early in 2012 and became a team member in July 2012, so the card I have chosen for this celebration challenge goes back to July 2013, the challenge was called Dreams and Dragons and the CD I used was one from Peerless Designs called Woodland Fantasy, this is still a CD that I love to use as just love the images on this CD.
I chose this one for a couple of very simple reasons, the first being the expression on the girls face, I remembered to use ribbon  and pearls, and also used stickles, but mainly because the whole thing showed a big improvement on what I had been making, I would like to think that I have moved on a little more since I made this one. I also love to use Craft Artist when making cards from a CD and I think at this stage I had a better understanding of how that works. 
All the design team have contributed to the prizes and also a special Lady who has been a guest designer at CD Sunday and still supports us so a big thank you to Pamela.

Add a stamped image at CD Sunday Challenge

Good morning crafter and welcome to latest CD Sunday Challenge.
The challenge is set for you this fortnight by team mate Christine. Christine has made this an easy one for everyone to do, yes just add a stamped image and use something from a CD, any of your choice .....simples.
Our last challenge was set by Jenny (flitter & flutter) and she will be selecting her top three to be announced later, so do back to see if you are a winner.

I have made a standard 5x7 card and the CD i used is Artylicious Damask Delight by Glenda Waterworth. So the Cd element to this card is the damask background paper, and that is the only thing from a CD that i have used.    
I used two stamps , the main image is a Santoro clear stamp and the sentiment stamp is a rubber unmounted one from crafters companion, both stamped using Memento tuxedo black. The other ingredients to this card are in the photo below,  embossing folder from Darice, die from Tonic, copic's and jelly roll pens for colouring and liquid pearls and  a dew drop Brilliance ink in galaxy gold for edging the sentiment, image and card.
well i hope you can all join in again and i look forward to visiting you.

Flitter & Flutter with Jenny at CD Sunday

I must be getting old, i feel that time is flying by and its already time for a new challenge.
Just before we look at the new Challenge our last challenge had some fabulous entries and Carol will back and forth to select her top three. 
This fortnights challenge has been selected for you by Jenny, .
Don't think of just birds and butterfly's, there is plenty of scope for this one and if i had of been more organized i had an idea of what I wanted to do, but time is now against me so i have gone with a Polka doodles CD called Back to nature.
So everything on this card has come from the CD and not too much cutting out, although i do enjoy cutting. 
I have made so that the tree opens back to reveal the cute owl behind and then opens again for the insert and verse, the owl also has a back image, so i could have paced her in the aperture and once opened you see the back of her, but i liked her just on the opened page .
So get your thinking caps on and join us again this fortnight and please remember to use something from a CD and give it credit.
See you all soon

Add some Bling or Glitter

Morning all, it is my turn to set a theme for our CD Sunday challenge and i have chosen add some Bling or Glitter.
My card is a very simple one and quick and easy to do, I have use a CD from Debbi Moore called Glitter & Glitz , Magic Moments. 
The background and topper have been printed directly onto the card, ( this is the first time i have tried doing a card this way) more of a test really to see how it looks. I can see the advantage of doing cards this way, for quickness and simplicity of posting but i prefer to craft it with cutting and gluing in the traditional way . The glitter i used is an Ice Stickles, Crystal ice and have applied it her dress and hat and i have also used silver peel offs , yes i know a lot of you don't like peel offs although most of us have them in our stash, i do like them although i don't use the much they do have a place in crafting and i did promise myself to use up things from my stash and try to reduce the amount of things i have, because no matter how many times you say your  not going to buy more stash there is always something we crafters really need.
So as i say very quick and simple from printer to card , added glitter , a foiled sentiment and a pair of shoes with little red stones.
Please do take a look at what my team mates have produced for your inspiration this time, and i look forward to seeing what you come with and visiting your blogs.

Sentiments with Carol at CD Sunday

 As i write this the sun is shining and it's lovely and warm as I sit by the window looking out on blue sky's and new growth in the garden , the only down side is the grass needs to be cut.
Not to many entries for my Shabby Chic in our last challenge but i can understand that as so many say they don't know what it means.
I hope you will be more keen on Carols choice for the next two weeks.
Now it's very rare that you see a card without a sentiment of some sort so this is like an open challenge or anything goes as long as you use a sentiment and something from a CD.
For my card I have used 2 CD's 
Halcyon days and In otherwords
also added
Paper doilies, big bloomer flower, bakers twine and a few die cuts.
The sentiment reads
you'll always be my best friend......
you know too much.
So get your crafting hats on and join us.
