CD Sunday - Challenge #9 -' Anything Goes' but a CD must have been used somewhere.

My goodness me it is windy down here in the South.  My craft room is my 19ft x 10ft all glass conservatory and there doesn't seem to be much between me and the galeforce winds which seem to be stronger than during the last storm.

Our 9th Birthday has come and gone. Not as many entries as we would have liked  but some lovely cards were entered and we will choose some winners.

For challenge #9 I have chosen to use a House Mouse CD .

All of the card comes from the CD.  No real decoupage - just the addition of  a sentiment and a mouse circle and a suspended teabag.  I don't actually like mint tea in fact don't really enjoy any tea but I have learned that fellow teamie Jane does love Mint Tea.

Wherever you are I hope that  Storm Hannah has not done you any harm. According to the weather forecasts the South East isn't really involved but I can certainly hear and see the gusts of wind.

See you on your Blogs.

CD Sunday 9th Birthday Challenge - #8 The theme is 'Birthdays' and a CD must be used somewhere.

It is difficult to believe that it is CD Sunday's 9th Birthday. The actual Birthday is on the 18th April but today is our nearest Sunday.  As promised the team are giving prizes.  Good value vouchers but more details about that can be found on the CD Sunday Blog - here.

I entered the first CD Sunday Challenge  back in 2010 on 23rd April  and here is my entry

The challenge was 'Wings and Things' and I used an Ooh La La CD
As it is my birthday this month (Easter Sunday)  and also Her Majesty the Queen's birthday (same day as mine) I decided to do a patriotic card - at least colourwise.  Her Majesty is about the same age as some of these wonderful guys but I hasten to add that I am NOT.

It all comes from La Pashe CDs.  The image came from The Wrinklies and the background from The Big One Backgrounds - The Wrinklies No:24

Pretty please come and join us especially as we have saved our pennies for the great prizes that will be awarded.

I look forward to visiting your blogs and to then together with my fellow teamies choosing our winners.

La Pashe and die cuts for Christmas 2019

I have used yet more images from La Pashe CD's and this time just one die cut frame for all except one. I had fun with colours and gems.  I have now made at least half of the quantity I will need and I plan to make some stitch cards - for a change.

More Christmas 2019

As promised here is a Christmas card made in parchment using parts of the Groovi plate 'Tina's Henna Corners 2'.  I had used it earlier during a lesson here.

It has made a slightly unusual card - certainly very different to my usual makes.

The jury is still out.  My son says he likes it. Well it was paraded in front of him and poor lad couldn't say much else - but I am still not sure. Perhaps it just isn't 'Christmassy'.
