CD Sunday's Challeng --Sketch

CD Sunday Challenge ....Sketch
We have a new challenge for you at CD Sunday and it's chosen by Jenny, i think you will like this one, it's a sketch.
 Now you have so many ways with this , three separate pictures or one cut into three. 
I have gone for three separate pictures and have gone with steam punk, I have used a background paper from MCS Tinkering with steam punk, two of the images are from kanban and the central picture, the funky cat , well that was a net image that i just loved and wanted to use
I look forward to seeing how you interpret the sketch.

Going round in circles

Going round in circles

Morning everyone, this week at CD Sunday they are going round in circles, so if this is you (and it's quite often me) come and play along.
The choice this week is from our Jocelyn and i had to think about this and see just what i had on CD for the challenge, but once you start to think about it there are so many things that go round in circles (apart from my mind).
I have used a my craft studio CD Tinkering with steampunk , love steampunk but it's been a while since i have done any.
There was quite a few things i could have used from this CD but i have gone with the clock, i should have printed two or three of the clocks to do some decoupage but i have gone with the flat version.
I hope you will be able to join in this week and see if you can come with something that team have not shown , 

I have added this card to the following challenge

Tag it

Tag it
That's the theme this week at Cardz 4 guyzhttp://cardz4guyz.blogspot.co.uk/, i have made a large tag out of red card and used spray shimmers over the top, the embellishments are from a scrap book kit , assembled into craft artist and printed out on a medium weight card and cut out, i have left a small white border so they show or pop against the dark tag.

I am entering this into the following challenges

Mother, mum, mummy

 CD Sunday challenge , Mother, mum, mummy

Some lovely cards last  week for Wendy's simply red, I even got to enter one myself. Lovely choice Wendy, thank you i did enjoy it.
This week it is my turn to pick the theme for the CD Sunday challenge and I have chosen mother, mum, mummy. I picked this with mothers day in mind but it could be anything else that you can think of,  new mother and baby, thanks mum or even mother cat or dog, what about mother goose or old mother hubbard . 
For my card I have used crafters companion's Angelica and Adam collection CD. I have used one of the shaped cards, taken it into craft artists and have made a few changes, then it was just print and cut, these type of shaped cards are great if you're lucky enough to have a printer that will take a good weight card, sadly mine won't do this , so i print on a medium weight card and then apply to another one.
I hope you will be able to join in with us week and I look forward to seeing what you come up with and i be visiting  you.

Simlply Red at CD Sunday

It's Simply Red this week at CD Sunday  and that our team mate Wendy's choice for this week. I like this choice , something bright and cheerful i thought and this is what i came up with, an 8x8 card in white, matted and layered two papers, the back paper is a sheet of music in pink then a red and white spot paper on black card, this paper is from a polka doodles CD , finished of with die cuts , i hope you like it and if you some time do pop over and enter your creation, just remember to use something from a CD and tell us what you have used.

 I see the Cardz4guyz challenge this week is Nature so i will enter this card.  
I felt like having a play with the Debbie Moore shabby chic garden bookazine, i have never used one before and found it so easy to make a quick card as everything is right there at your finger tips. I cut out all the pieces i needed and then had fun arranging them, once happy with my choice i attached them to the backing paper.  It really is ideal for a card in a hurry so i will keep it to one side for when i need something quick. I have kept everything flat for ease of postage but could of easily layered it more or decoupaged, for a very quick card it turned out really well.

Easter Parade

Thank you for  all your entries last week, Carol will be looking through them  to pick her top three .
This week it is Wynn's turn to choose the theme and she has gone with Easter Parade so plenty of scope and time to get your cards in for Easter.
I wonder who many think of Easter for what it is or do they only think of chocolate.....
For my card i have gone with the chocolate and it will be for my Grandsons, for my mum it will be a more traditional one as she thinks of Easter for what it was always meant to represent. 
I have used Joanna Sheen's House Mouse and a CD I got from ebay for a couple of pounds and called Occasions Easter from springbanks Designs.

Countdown to Christmas
