CD Sunday - 'Let's go Lilac' - chosen by Jocelyn

Lilac is one of my favourite colours and one of my favourite flowers.  I have some Lilac in my garden and although people say it is unlucky to bring it into the house I do just for a few days once a year. Sadly it doesn't last long when picked so perhaps it is out of the house before any bad luck can strike.
Below is a photo of one of the fine blooms on my tree.
 But now back to the matter in hand.  A great theme chosen by Jocelyn and for this challenge I went back to stocking up my ATC folder and made these:

I used Joanna Sheen's House Mouse and Gruffies CD's for five of  the ATCs -  and  all of the backgrounds.  Then I used  various butterflies for the other three ATCs.  They were difficult to photo or scan so I hope you can see them well enough.

Another big day today  for CD Sunday as we are announcing the new members of our Design Team over on the Blog. We couldn't be more delighted and we are looking forward to long lasting  and happy teamwork.  I am sure you will welcome them and visit their blogs to see all the wonderful work they do.  They will be showing off their work for CD Sunday  in our next Challenge.  We had to give them time to be creative  and not rush them.

Our 6th Birthday prize winners were announced during the week and their prizes should be on the way to them by now.  We hope they will be pleased with the goodies. One of our prize winners lives in Florida and I was sorely tempted to deliver her prize in person.

I look forward to some serious blog hopping.  We had a great number of entries in our last challenge and I really enjoyed visiting and commenting so let's hope for the same or even more this time.
