Inspired by nature

hello and welcome to another challenge from Cd Sunday.  Before we get to the challenge i would just like to say what beautiful creations you all made in last weeks Challenge Layer it up.  As it was my choice of theme i also get to pick my top three,  now to be honest i am going to struggle  with this as we had such amazing cards sent in, so please check back to the challenge blog on Wednesday. Our lovely Guest designer Pauline is into her last week with us, how quickly has this month gone by, I'm sure you'll agree that Pauline has been a great guest and has done us proud with the beautiful cards she has brought us this month, so thank you Pauline, we hope you will come back soon.
This week the challenge is all about nature and that is the choice of our lovely Jocelyn , so i hope you will all join us again this week.
 As usual the design team have made  beautiful examples to inspire you and this is  my card. The Cd i used is from My craft studio Floriography CD2. I'm sorry for the poor quality of this photo, the colours are so much nicer than this in daylight and i as usual took in artificial light. Please be sure to tell us what Cd you have used in the making of your creation, and leave a link .

Good Sunday morning everyone, it's time for another challenge at CD Sunday.
Last week we had Rainy days and although the quantity was not as good as usual the quality was excellent , Some very talented crafters out there.
So on to this week and it's my turn to pick a theme for you and i have chosen
Layer it up, so the choice is wide open for you all this week as long as it has layers, and as usual please remember to use something from a CD and tell what CD you have used.
You can make anything at all , Card, scrap page , decorated box whatever you like.
My teamies and our Guest designer Pauline  have lovely examples to inspire you, all beautiful and very different.
For my card this week i have used scrap artist to compile my card before printing and layering it to a scalloped edge card.  I have used the butterfly collection cd's (Garden) and also the Serif Brushes and stamps collection . After layering up i have also added ribbon, pearls and a small wooden heart.
I hope you will join us this week and i look forward to visiting you.

Rainy days

Oh my word, what beautiful creations we had from everyone for Christmas in pink, so many saying they where out of there comfort  zone with a pink Christmas, but just look at the beautiful cards you have made and the icing on the cake will be for the winner of that CD from our sponsor Dreamees, so i wish you all the best of luck.

This weeks challenge has been chosen by the lovely Jenny and that is RAINY DAYS,  the design team have come up with beautiful cards to inspire you and we have our lovely and talented Guest Designer Pauline from Crafting with Cotnob with us. So be sure to look in on there blogs and leave a kind word or two.
My card this week has been made using the Rachelle Anne Miller Collection CD and all papers and toppers are from it, the main image i have decoupaged and made an easel card.
Please be sure to tell us what Cd you have used when entering your creation, and it only has to be a small item, you don't have to make everything using a Cd and it can be a scrap page decorated box , book mark , what ever you want.
Now some of our team have been really under the weather of late and i would like to say that i hope they are all back to good health soon.
Don't forget to look in on the challenge blog around mid week, it could be you that has won the top stop.

Easy Rider

Digitally sweets challenge this week is to us digital metal on your Creation, well i hope they like what i have done this week. The main image i have used before but i love it and i have not used it in over 12 months so it's time for another airing. Most of the elements have come from a kit called Steampunk Farewell journey, a mini kit by crafty-poly, i think i have got that right, i have had it for a good while and i am not that good at keeping my kits in order.
I hope you like it .
