Song Titles with Jocelyn

This weeks challenge at CD Sunday is set for you by team mate Jocelyn and it is Song Titles.  This has given me another opportunity to make another Christmas card using a Polka Doodles CD called Festive Hollybobs. The song title i have chosen is Deck the Halls.
I have used an 8x8 card base and printed off all the elements and backing paper from the CD.
I have mounted the image on to silver foil paper then i have cut into the B/P using a craft knife to cut around the holly and place the image into it to make a sort of frame for the image . This Happy Christmas was cut on a die i got free with a magazine .
Well i hope the design team have given you plenty of inspiration and i look forward to seeing what you come up with this time around.

Well how time flies, these two weeks have flown by`and I'm no further advanced with my Christmas cards.
I'm sure some of you already know that our team mate Caz has stepped down from the design team and she will be missed by all of us , so thanks Caz for all your great input and contribution to the team and good luck in your next venture.
Our last challenge,  Coffee , peach and cream saw some beautiful entries so Christine will let us know who she picked for her top three.
This week is the turn of team mate Wynn and she has chosen P...is for, well that leaves the door wide open for your imagination and we look forward to seeing what you come with this time around.
For my team contribution I have used  a Polka doodles CD called Festive Hollybobs and i am loving this and i will using this a lot i think this year for my cards.
My P element is of course the penguin, taken for the CD , in face the whole card has been made using the CD and i hope you like it.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with for this challenge .

Coffee peach and cream with Christine.

Well we did have some really lovely silhouette for our last challenge set for you by Carol, now she has the task of sorting out her top three.
This week it is Christine's turn to set the challenge for you and she has gone with Coffee, peach and cream . I'm sure you will all be able to come up with some beautiful things with this colour combo.
For my card i have used 8x8 white card , the back paper is my CD element and has been taken from a My craft studio CD called Floriography . This is a CD that do use a lot full of beautiful design papers.
The back mat has been cut out on the camio and top is a die cut from tonic called delicate lattice, the flowers are stamps from heart felt creation , they have been fussy cut as i don't the die that goes with the stamps, they have been painted with metallic paint called sunset gold and embossed with a ranger embossing powder called orange sherbet. I love the verse on the inside and i think it came from TLC creations.
The team and i look forward to seeing what you can do with this challenge and visiting your blogs.
