Deco Drama - CD Sunday DT

Happy Easter dear followers, I hope you have a lovely day, the weather is lovely and sunny and I will be relaxing.

Today I'm showing you a Christmas card - ideal for Easter, don't you think !  It's actually for our latest theme of 'Deco Drama' over at CD Sunday, it gave me a chance to make my first Christmas card this year, a bit of late start for me, I normally start them in February, but I've been busy making wedding invites and stationery for daughter Jess's wedding a little later in the year.

My card uses images and papers from Deco Christmas CD by Debbi Moore and a template I found somewhere on the internet a couple of years ago,  I added a couple of scrolls die cut into Silver mirri card and glittered her dress for a little sparkle and finally a sparkly ribbon bow.

Hope to see your entry on the challenge this week, don't forget to pop over and see what my teamies have made.

Card for a Child - OLLCB DT

This one is a bit late, I've only just noticed - oohps !,  it should have posted on Monday but was still sat there waiting to post, not sure what happened there.  

This week our new theme is 'A card for a Child' for Ooh-la-la creations challenge.  The image and papers are from Fairies and Blooms CD, I made it for my Grand-daughter Matilda's birthday,  haven't made a twisted easel for a while so that made a nice change. I added some die cut swirls, ribbon and a senti from my stash.

Something Beginning with 'D' - CD Sunday DT

Today my CD Sunday DT card is for my Grand-daughter Ivy's birthday, my 'D' for the theme is decoupage, I've used image and papers from Popcorn Bear - Birthday CD.  the hearts and heart corner and border punch set were from a Martha Stewart punch, sadly the border punch gave up and stopped punching after I had punched a couple of borders, very unusual for an MS punch, unfortunately I can't remember where I got it from. The little hearts scattered around were the offcuts from the main punch. I also used some clear glaze on the balloons, ribbon and 'happy birthday' are from my stash.

Going Round in Circles - CD Sunday DT

The title of this weeks challenge over at CD Sunday sounds a little like me some days, hehe.  Anyway our latest challenge is 'Going Round in Circles', I couldn't think what to do at first, my image and papers are from Popcorn Platinum Edition from Crafters Companion. I ended up with plenty of circles, I also used some purple glitter paper, MS punches, and some little gems, oh yes and some peel offs, I haven't used them for ages.

152 A Special Lady - OLLCB DT

Our latest challenge over at Ooh-La-La starts today, with the theme of 'A Special Lady' I decided to use image and papers from Ooh-La-La's Shawn Jenkins CD. I do love cards with flowers and butterflies. My doily was lightly inked with some purple ink as were the edges of the BP, the two little scrolls are made from Martha Stewart paper clay and moulds, they give some depth,  I also cut some extra butterflies for a bit more dimension and finally finished off with a purple bow and a 'for you mum' sentiment.

Simply Red - CD Sunday DT

It's time again already for another challenge over at CD Sunday, the theme this week is my choice and I've gone for 'Simply Red' so that gives you plenty of scope.  

Mine is made for Grandson's birthday, for the background I embossed some red mirri to give texture , the image is from MCS Collectors Edition, a little bit of BP that was in my paper stash of offcuts, all finished off with Bakers Twine and die cut sentiment.
