Bundle of joy

What a week of weather we have had, our village was cut off by the snow on friday, but we have such good neighbours, all the local farmers have been out on tractors with ploughs to keep us up and running, poor Ray returning home was greeted by police at the top of the lane to be told no way through, he thought he was going to have to walk a mile and half to get home. Luckily some the ploughs had come through the back lanes so he was able to drive home.
Back to the matter in hand, last week we had wonderful wings and your entries where lovely, so thank you all, i look forward to seeing who will get the top spot, so do check on wednesday, it could be you.
This week it is my turn to pick a theme for you and i have chosen Bundle of Joy, i know the obvious choice would be baby, but it could be a kitten or puppy.
We still have the lovely Marina with us and once again she has given us a lovely card as have all our ladies.
for my card i used Polka doodles, candy doodles collection Cd. I have used 6x6 white card , printed out the backing paper and topper and the word baby, the topper is mounted onto white card edged with pink, added a polka dot ribbon and buttons. 
i hope you can all join in with again this week and i look forward to seeing your work.

CD Sunday challenge ..Wonderful wings

What a week for changing weather this has been, talk about blowing hot and cold.
Last week Carol ask you for Land of the pharaohs and you came up with creative and imaginative cards so she will have her work cut out to select one winner from the lovely entries.
This week it is Jenny's turn to pick and she has chosen Wonderful Wings and after looking at the Teams cards i'm sure you will have plenty of ideas running through your head.
For my card i have used a Peerless Designes CD called Woodland Fantasy, i love this cd so full of original fantasy themed artwork, just fabulous. I have used a 6x6 scalloped edge card, the backing paper is from the Cd, the image is mounted to blue card and the sentiment was made using the same card. Only the sentiment is raised so should prove no problem with posting.
I hope you all enjoy this weeks challenge, i certainly did, trying to decide what type of wings i wanted to use. 
As always please use something from a CD and give the CD you used a credit , i look forward to visiting you all and seeing what you come with.

Good morning crafters, not so hot today but the sun always shines blog land. We had had beautiful entries last week for our butterflies what a crafty lot you are. Don't forget that winner will receive that fabulous prize from Caroline, so good luck to you all.
This week it's Carols choice, and she has chosen Land of the Pharaohs, so get your thinking caps on and root through your CD's and show us what you came up. We have Marina with us again this week, I'm sure you where all pleased with her debut card with us, so beautiful and you will not be disappointed with her creation for this week.
I have used a Joanna Sheen cd called ivory cats, this a lovely cd if you like cats and i do but can not have one as i have two dogs, but hey ho i love my dogs.

I loved what the design did for our last challenge Hugs and Wishes but i was so pleased with what you came up, beautiful each and everyone of them. 
As it's a new month we also have a new guest designer and that is Marina and her blog is My perfect life so do pop over and take a look at the beautiful things she crafts.

This week we have a sponsor and that is Caroline with one her fabulous digi kits. 
also Caroline has given a fabulous prize of £10 worth of digikits or Rubber stamps.
Each member of the design team have very kindly been given files for challenge from new kit, Rainbow Butterflies, mine is in pinks and greens, such a lovely combination. Carolines kits are so easy to work with and you will be so pleased with results of your labor, i know i am.
My card has been made using Carolines background papers, embellishments and buttons, it was made using CAP so i have also used some the techniques available within it's program such as embossing and drop shadow.
I know you will all enjoy the challenge this week, butterflies are loved by most crafters and i do look forward to visiting and seeing what you bring use this week.
