CD Sunday - Challenge #11 - 'Anything Goes' as long as a craft CD has been used somewhere.

Firstly I am sorry about the poor quality of this photo of my card for Challenge #11.  I have tried playing about with my graphics programme but for some reason it all looks a little wishy-washy.

It does look a great deal better in the flesh and I enjoyed making it.  I love all things House Mouse and I am also a jigsaw addict so a perfect combination.
I used one of my jigsaw dies to cut out the extra pieces of jigsaw having found some card scraps in the right colour range.

I do have a new jigsaw to do which arrived yesterday.  It is a jigsaw of St Basil's Cathedral in Moscow which I think is one of the most beautiful buildings in the world -  and I would have loved to have seen it for myself.

Please join in with us if you can. It is always a pleasure to visit your blogs.

Just catching up with the postings of my swops made for the Facebook Group.  They are presented by the organisers so beautifully.

Here are my catch-ups:

February - Jewellery/Gems

I make quite a lot of 'Jewellery' Atcs and always enjoy making them.

March - Celtic

April - Easter

These were all parchment using Groovi and PCA plates. Easter Bonnets.

May - SteamPunk
I really enjoyed making these. Love Steampunk

Another from MCS 'Simply Silhouettes CD' and one from Docraft

I had fun making the Fairy/Imp card for our current CD Sunday Challenge so I made this one at the same time.

The die cut tiny fairies were made using the Joanna Sheen dies using black, silver and glittered pink card. The wings were infilled with gold Glamour Dust.

I then had to make a card for my grandaughter Ellie and I chose 'Tulip and Friends CD' from Docraft.  I love all the images on this CD and enjoy the chance to use it.  The cake is one of my favourites and have used it before.  I have decoupaged the two bows and added tiny red half pearls to the cake decorations and her hair and shoes.
Ellie has a little dog called Alfie.  Not this breed but then you can't have everything.

Thank you for looking.

CD Sunday - Challenge #10 - 'Anything Goes' - as long as a craft CD has been used somewhere.

Challenge #10 is being hosted by teamie Meg. Sadly this will be Meg's last challenge as a team member as her time is needed elsewhere.  I love Meg's style of cards and I hope that she will join in with us if and when possible.
I am afraid this will be a short posting from me. I am suffering from the worst cough I have ever had and am exhausted. (playing for the sympathy vote here).

Here is my card which I have made for my 'Birthday Box'.  The image - which I think is a cross between a Fairy and an Imp -  comes from MCS - 'Simply Silhouettes'.  I had fun making a few cards using this CD together with using some little fairy die cuts. The larger die cut is by Joanna Sheen and the itsy bitsy ones are from Marianne Craftables Silver Selection. They come in sets of miniatures on a certain theme and I have now about 22 of these sets.

You will see from our Blog posting that we will announce the Birthday Challenge winner/winners later during this challenge.

Take care and keep away from coughs. They aren't much fun.
