Good morning all, a mixed bag of weather this week but that didn't stop you sending in some fabulous cards.
This week the challenge is Kimono chosen by Caz, so get your thinking caps on and show us your oriental delights. 
Just like to wish our puple crazy Wendy a very happy birthday
We have fabulous cards
 from out guest designer Wynn, and the rest of the design team so i'm sure you will have plenty to get you thinking.
For my card i have used M C S's Magical metallic's cd1 for the backing paper and i'm thinking it was oriental dreams for the image.
I may not be able to make any comments over the next few weeks as i'm off on my holidays, but i do hope to be looking in and if i can will comment.

Fine Plumage

What fabulous weather we are having at the moment, i do hope that you have all been able to take advantage of  it.
Last week we saw the first card from our guest designer Wynn, beautiful yes and this week she has another for you, I think our weather this week could rival that of Cyprus and many other holiday destinations .
Lovely cards again last week so do check back on the blog later in the week to see who made the top three.
This week we have Fine Plumage and i have already seen what will be coming up on the blog, great inspiration for you.
For my card i have used My Craft Studio's Magical mystical Metallics, i love the papers on this CD. The image is one i found on the net and have looking for reason to use it . I have made an 8 x 8 card , cut out a mat and lightly inked the edges with Tim Holtz ink pad, on the image i have clear embossed the face and feathers and added some stickles to the feathers , finished off with card candy and a ribbon.
I look forward to seeing what you come with for this challenge and please remember to use something from a CD and give it credit in your write up.

Faithful Friends

Hello and welcome to another Challenge at CD Sunday.
Last weeks challenge (Aged to perfection) was my choice so after looking again at all the fabulous entries my top three will be put on the CD Sunday challenge blog.
This month we have for you a new guest designer and that is Wynn from "sunshine cards & creations ". Wynn's first card this week is a beauty and i know your going to love it.
This week we are being sponsored
The theme is faithful friends and the team have very kindly been given some files to play with, mine is a beautiful Yorkshire terrier,  
I found Ooh La La's very easy to work with and was so impressed with the variety of papers and images. Anyone who loves  dogs will be in for a treat with this CD.
So get your thinking caps on as not all faithful friends are dog's . And please remember to tell what CD you have used .

Countdown to Christmas
