CD Sunday - 'Winter in the Mountains' - chosen by Margaret

Good Morning.
I am writing this a bit earlier than I usually do and we had a smidgen of snow this morning on my car. I see from the news that it is a lot worse further North. I hope everyone is OK and not too badly affected.

It seems appropriate then that Margaret has chosen 'Winter in the Mountains' for our theme for the next two weeks. As I said on the main Blog it could be an opportunity to make your first Christmas card for 2018.  I bet some have started already including me as mine could be used as a Christmas card.

Here is my 'Winter in the Mountains'

All of the card comes from  'Winter Snow Globes' - Daisy Trail using Serif Craft Artist 2  The embellishments added are the half pearls on the bottom edge of the globe, the single crystal at the top of the base and the glitter peel off edging around the image.
Perhaps I have taken a very tiny liberty with the theme but the snowy village does look like a mountain village to me.
Thank you for looking and I hope to see you on your blogs. Please join in with us and have fun.

p.s .Because our Blog is called CD Sunday it  means that a CD must be used and stipulated somewhere in the making of your project or card. My card this time helps clarify a point we have made about using digital or computer generated  images.
The Serif Craft Artist Graphics programme was bought as a CD and loaded onto my computer. Many many of the Daisy Trail additions were purchased as CD's.  This is very different to purchasing an image or card as a single download or indeed purchasing and downloading the contents of a CD when it is available as an actual CD (that you pop into the coffee drawer).


  1. Love the snowglobe and it does look like a mountain village, beautiful colour and card

  2. A gorgeous card Carol, that village look as though its on the top of a mountain. I love the way you've popped it into a snow globe.

    My own card is also my first Christmas card and is already earmarked for someone who we meet on the coach tour we did and we are actually meeting up hopefully on Friday.
