Shop til you drop

Good Morning all, it's time for a new Challenge at CD Sunday and it has been chosen by team mate Jenny of StarcycrackersShop til you drop and we hope you can all join in.
We have our monthly guest designer with us and that is Anne of Stargroves and I'm sure you will agree that Anne's card last week was a beaut.
I have two cards to show this week, thats not not because i love to shop, it''s because i had a lovely stamp i also wanted to use.
 This is made the Crafter's Companion CD Frou Frou, the CD is very easy to use and i made it in Craft Artist, again another program i love to use. All elements  to this card are totally digital and
layered up in craft artist and printed off, so you can make  a totally flat card ready for postage .
My second card was made using this lovely stamp from Redonkadoodles and i have coloured her with Promarkers, feximarks and a new alcohol marker to me called Touch from ShinHanart. The CD element for this is the backing paper printed from Artylicious Fantasy Floral, i have placed a large mat over that and layered the stamped image onto glitter card and added a couple of flowers. I hope you can all join us this week and please remember you must use something from a CD and give a credit in your write up, I look forward to visiting you and seeing your creations.
