For someone special

For someone special and this is Beryl's choice for the challenge at CD Sunday this week.
Once again i have been caught napping, thought i had done a card and no i was only dreaming. However i had been making a this box card for my friends daughter who will having her 40th birthday next month. The box card is extremely easy to make but i found the difficult part was deciding how to decorate it and place the parts. Now that i have made one i am more confident to do another.
The CD i have used is Linda Ravenscroft  Enchanted, but i have only used one small piece and that is the butterfly, the paper that have been used on the flaps are from a cd but i can't remember which one as it's out of a box of papers that i have printed out some time ago and did make a note on it.

 I do hope you all have someone special that you want to make a card for this week and join in with us, we love to visit you .

Wheel fun

The challenge at Cardz 4 guyz this week is Wheel fun.
I have had a busy week and didn't think i would have time to enter this week , but as i was looking through my magazine i noticed this image of the car as a free download and i thought it was just right for Ray who is going to be 60 next month and also right for the challenge, so here it is.
The image has been printed off and coloured with Graphit-markers, i have used a 8x8 white card with kraft card and a old page from a road atlas, some bakers twine and a button and card candy.

something beginning with...D

CD Sunday Challenge .....Something beginning with ...D
This is Caz's choice for team B this week and what a good choice it is, so many possibilities  with this, so put on your thinking caps and join us this week, the only thing to remember is to use something from a CD and link it to your post and not your blog.
I have just got the new Polka Doodles CD's work & play collections and i have made my card from collection 1 and used the drummer. 
I have used an 6x6 white card and compiled it in craft artist, my original intention was to print out all the elements i wanted to use and cut out and layer everything up, but then i decided to see just what it looked like if i set it out in craft artist and add a drop shadow and print it out flat, and this is the result. I am really pleased with the result, as you can see it does give a good 3D impression. Doing it this way is a lot quicker for when you need something in hurry and also being flat posting is no problem at all.
