CD Sunday

Good Morning, first of all I must apologise for my blogging absence recently, but I am in the process of turning my craft room back into a living room for the festive period.  I have got so much stuff I can't find homes for everything lol.

Right onto today's card, which is my GDT offering  at CD Sunday which this week is Fifties Fun.  The image is from Debbi Moore's New York CD, the backing paper is from her Snowflake Queen CD. The matting is some gold textured card from my stash which I have Cuttlebugged, the ribbon and flower are from my stash and the sentiment is computer generated.  In fact the sentiment was changed two days ago as I was asked for an engagement card and decided this would fit the bill nicely and the customer thought so too.

I am looking forward to visiting all of your blogs to see how you all interpret the challenge.

Hi folks,  I seem to have missed a few challenges this week, not sure why.  My card to share today is for the Totally Papercrafts Challenge - Anything But Christmas.  My card is for my grandson who has a birthday on the 21st December, he is into Beyblades at the moment.  The image came from somewhere on the internet, courtesy of  Google, the backing paper is from Boys to Men cd by Ooh La La Creations.  I used Lapis Stardream for the base card, matting, letters and number all die cut with a Sissix alphabet.

Many thanks for visiitng and for any comments you may wish to make,  I do so love to read them.

A Bit Late

Good Afternoon, I'm a bit late with my Less is More Challenge card, life getting in the way.  Anyhoo Chrissie and Mandi have set a colour challenge this week of Green - my favourite colour.  I have used a Chocolate Baroque stamp inked with Brilliance Perleascent Ivy, the sentiment is from Papermania and stamped with the same inkpad.  I matted with some green scraps from my stash and found a bit of green gingham ribbon loitering in the bottom of my ribbon box.

I am entering my card into Jules Crafty Snippets Challenge 48 - the white and green card are offcuts.

Thanks for your visit

Great News

Good Morning, well at last I can let you all in on some wonderful news.  A couple of months back I was asked if I would like to be a guest design team member for CD Sunday, naturally I jumped at the chance.  But, I wasn't allowed to tell anyone until the big day arrived.  Today is that day and here is my card for the challenge which is Something With Whiskers, and we are being sponsored by Elegant Inspiration, and the image, backing paper and border are all from The Rachelle Anne Miller Collection.  I have matted with Papermania Shimmer card, the flower embellie is from my stash and the sentiment is computer generated.

Please drop by the other team members blogs for some wonderful inspiration and  I do hope you will all join in the fun and I am really looking forward to visiting you and commenting on your entries.

Christmas Bingo

Good Evening, my card today is for Crafty Ann's last challenge of the year and we are playing Christmas Bingo.  I hope that Ann will not be angry with me because I am not using a Christmas card, but one that I have made for my Mum and Stepdad's Ruby Wedding Anniversary which takes place next Sunday, and it fits in with the bottom row of  the grid
I have used Mars Stardream for the base cards and the image and backing paper is from Joanna Sheen's Floral Fantasy cd.  I forgot to take a pic with the bow undone and the card opened up, but I am sure you have all seen this style of card before.  The ribbon and gems are from my stash, the number has been cut with a Cuttlebug alphabet and the sentiment is computer generated.

I am also entering my card into the Cute Card Thursday Challenge - It's Just a Number

I hope you like my card and many thanks for visiting today

Away in a Manger

Hi folks, my card today is for Rainbow Lady's Challenge - Christmas Carols.  This was an exceptionally easy card, it is a Christmas Trinitage from the new La Pashe cd The Big One.  The three separate layers don't show up particularly well but looks quite good in real life.  1st layer is the full picture, 2nd layer is cut up to the roof of the stable and the 3rd layer is cut just showing the main characters.  I have used Lapis Stardream for the base card then matted with white and silver.

I hope you like my card and many thanks for visiting and for any comments you may wish to make
