Game on

Morning all,
 well that went quick, a whole week has flown by, in fact this year has flown, is it because I'm getting old, no i don't need you to answer that............
On to this week and a thank you for joining us last week, great entries from everyone.
This week it is Jocelyn's turn to pick the theme for the week and she has chosen "Game on".
A great theme for everyone to have a go at, the DT ladies have come up with lots of inspiration for you as usual and the they are all excellent.  
We still have our Guest Michelle with  us who has done a lovely card again this week.
For my card i have used "Artylicious, Damask Delights" the main image is mostly grey and black so i have used a pale damask delights paper for the back ground on a 6x6 card.
So please come along and join us this week, we look forward to seeing what you come with.

Cute Christmas

Hello and welcome to Cd Sunday

Thank you for all the beautiful entries we had for last weeks  "Birds and Blooms" the theme chosen by Christine.

This weeks theme is "cute Christmas" chosen by jenny.
The design team have all been treated to a new CD From " Elegant Inspirations called Christmas Comforts " .
We have all made something from this lovely Cd and if you already have it in your stash we would love to see what you come up with too. If you don't already have it that's not a problem as the theme is Cute Christmas and i know you will have a CD to hand for that. The winner of the top three will receive a Cd from Elegant inspirations so go get crafting, it could be you. Don't forget to use at least 1 item or piece of paper from a Cd in order to be eligible for any prize that may be on offer,   Good luck.
This is my card, everything has been printed right of the cd to make this easel card,  "Christmas Comfort"  is a  Craft'n'Cut Compendium  PC CD ROM-2 Disc set crammed with everything you need to make beautiful Christmas cards,  from instant cards to template designs for both digital die cutting machines and hand cut projects . Just click on  the  link to take a look at whats on offer from Elegant Inspirations.
I look forward to seeing what you all come up with, it's never to early for you crafters to make Christmas cards.

Exotic birds & blooms

Welcome to CD Sunday.
Last week we played bingo and what beautiful creations you all made.  As i chose the theme for last week i will also have pick a top three.  This is not going to be easy as i loved each and everyone, so thank you all for your support.

On to this week and the lovely Christine has picked Exotic birds & blooms, so we would love to see what you come up with this week.

Our guest designer is Michelle and once again she has made a stunning card as have all the girls on the team, so please drop by for some lovely inspiration.

Just one thing to remember this is a CD challenge but you need only to add one item or piece of paper from a CD to qualify for any prize that may be on offer.

My card this week was made using CD1 from the Jayne Netley Mayhew collection. I have printed off the images and backing paper and layered them on to a DL card, i have added flowers and a small butterfly.  A nice quick and easy card for me this week but I'm pleased with the result and i hope like it too.
