Garden Pleasures - CD Sunday DT

What a funny week it's been, we've had some terrific thunderstorms here most nights that have caused some quite substantial damage across the region, thankfully apart from several days without phones or internet we've been OK, but several friends have suffered badly.  Sounds daft but thunder here sounds so different from when we were in UK, the thunder just seem to rumble on for ages and shake the house, very few noisy bangs,  so we're hoping to catch up on some much needed sleep this week.

My card which is for the latest challenge at CD Sunday uses image and papers from two Joanna Sheen CD's Ivory Cats and Pam West, I also used dies from both Memory Box and Heartfelt Creations for the little bird, cat, frame, and the flowers and leaves, and some paper lace over my paper joins.

Sympathy - MTTC DT

This time over at My Time To Craft, we have the theme of Sympathy, one of those times that we all need to cater for and often shy away from making.

My card uses images and papers from My Craft Studio, the base card is a pale green, Centura Pearl and the sentiment I made using Craft Artist 2

The One you Love - OLLCB DT

Yay !! back on line at last, have missed it, we had a tremendous thunderstorm that knocked out our internet and phone lines early in the weekend, so i'm quickly posting my latest DT card for Ooh-La-La, then must go off to do my commenting that didn't happen.

My image and papers are from Carnival of Colour CD, with the addition of a die cut heart from silver mirri card.

Don't forget to pop over and see what my teamies have been making this week.

Dreams and Dragons - CD Sunday DT

Wow what a hot week it's been, 33/34C most days and the forecast to be even hotter next week here, much too hot for me I'm afraid, and to make things worse I've got a throat and ear infection with a temp to match.

It's been a sad week too for us, our shy little fur baby Fizzy didn't come home Monday after her morning wander, somewhat unusual as she never went far from her food bowl, we assumed at first she may have got locked in somewhere, sadly a little later George found her out at the side of the main road through the village, Brandy seems to be missing her as she seems to want more cuddles and has a surplus of energy as she her and Fizzy used to chase each other around the house and garden.

On to more cheerful subjects, this week our theme at CD Sunday is Dreams and Dragons, I reverted to my favourite purples for this one, the image is from Simply Sumara and the papers are from Joanna Sheen, I decoupaged the group of flowers on the topper and used die cuts into silver mirri for the corners and the dragonfly.

Christmas in July - CD Sunday DT

This week over at CD Sunday it's my turn to pick the theme, I know it's only July, but I decided on Christmas in July, in the hope that it may get me into the groove for making a few, I had intended to get a head start back in April, but never quite got that far !! 

So here you see my first Christmas this year a cute House Mouse Topper from Joanna Sheens House Mouse Triple CD as are the papers, I also used some paper 'seasons greetings' tape and die cut some Poinsettias and fir sprigs, some puffy snow, and finished off with some Red Twinkle Goosebumps

Ebony and Ivory - OLLCB DT

Another fortnight gone already, time seems to be flying by, this time at Ooh-La-La we have the theme of Ebony and Ivory, my image and BP is from fabulous Yesterdays Memories CD, I thought I would use a gatefold card this time, as I haven't done one in ages, I used Spellbinders dies for the leafy scrolls cut from black mirri card and finished off with some Ivory shade roses.

Hats - CD Sunday DT

It's the first Sunday of the month again already, so over at CD Sunday that means it's a sponsored challenge, this month we have Jems Designs who are offering a CD from their range for one lucky entrant.

The team were generously given the lovely Hat Box Collection CD to work with, this turquoise hat and BP's jumped out for me, after purple, my fav colours are Turquoise or Fuschia, I added an extra layer of the hat and the bag and highlighted them with Sakura Silver Glitter pen, unfortunately it doesn't show up at all in the piccy.
