CD Sunday –‘Add a button or buttons’ – chosen by Sue




Good Morning everyone. Thank you for supporting Jocelyn’s challenge of ‘Seasons’ – we are continuing our good start to the year with more entries and they are great ones as always. Thank you all again -  and a special welcome back to old friends.  It is so nice to see you again.
Before we continue with our new challenge here is the Top 3 for ‘Wild Flowers’ chosen by Wynn.

“Well what a great start we had to 2016 with 11 fab entries for the 'Wild Flowers' challenge. Thank you all for sharing your lovely cards with us. I had the difficult task of choosing the Top Three, not easy, but it had to be done!!”

    1.   Cazro
I have chosen Cazro's card and gift bag. I loved  the wild flower image on this one. The scene was so natural looking. The addition of the 'red' just made the scene 'pop'!! So you hit the Top Spot Cazro. Well done.
2.  Meg
The CAS style was so striking. The simplicity of it was very pleasing.

3.  Suzy Cole 
What an adorable image! This card would cheer anyone. So cute!
Well done Cazro.  Please get in touch with your details using the email address in the side bar so that Wynn can forward on your prize.  Also don't forget, together with Meg and Suzy, to grab the appropriate banner from the side bar.
Now for these next two weeks Sue is asking you to add a button – or more if you prefer – to your design.  I think we all have plenty of buttons around in the craft room – so it shouldn’t be necessary to snip them off the family’s P J’s.  Here are the Design Team’s ideas starting of course with our two Guest Designers:
Debbie Moore's Shabby Chic- Vintage Discovery

House Mouse Cd

Halcyon Days

Grandma's Buttons by Katy Sue

CD 'Grandma's Button Box' Katy Sue

Gnomes & Faries by La Pashe

We hope that you will join in with us, have fun, and don’t forget there is a prize to be won.  Please link to your post and not to your Blog.    Please, please use something from a CD somewhere, however small, in the making of your card or project and give the CD credit. Entries that do not include the use of a CD, although welcome to see, will not be considered for the prize on offer and the team will not visit to comment.
We will be back in a couple of weeks with another new challenge and Jocelyn  will have chosen her ‘Seasons’ Top 3.

CD Sunday - 'Seasons' - chosen by Jocelyn




Well 2016 has started well for CD Sunday as we had more entries in Wynn’s ‘Wild Flower’ Challenge – our 1st of the year - and we couldn’t be more pleased. Wynn will be back in a couple of weeks with her Top 3.

We would like to take a moment to tell those that may see our Challenge Blog - maybe for the 1st time on the way through the list of challenges -  somethings about ourselves  -  apart from the fact that something (however big or small) from a CD has to be used on your card or project.
There are – at the moment – 4 regular design team members and 2 guests.
The themes are chosen by the regular team members in rotation.
The person choosing the theme then goes on to choose the Top 3 for her chosen challenge and provides a prize for the No: 1 of the 3.

So there is always a prize to be won.

Before we talk about the new challenge here is my own Top 3 for my choice of challenge – 'Ring in the New Year'.

"I liked all our entries and it was genuinely hard to choose a Top 3 but I liked the something different about the three I have chosen and here they are."

1.    Suzy Cole
I loved the story behind this one - a reflective and different take on a New Year to come.
2.   Cazro
The shape, muted tones and all those clocks caught my eye on this one.
3.   Melanie
P1030020
The stepper shape and the added streamers made this one a little different.
 Well done Suzy.  Please get in touch with your details using the email address in the side bar so that I can forward on your prize. 
All our Top 3's -please don't forget to take the appropriate banner from the side bar

Wynn will be back next time with her own Top 3.

Now on to the new challenge:

‘Seasons’ – Jocelyn has said that any one of the ‘Seasons’, all of the ‘Seasons’ or any combination thereof is absolutely OK…….so here now are the team’s ideas for ‘Seasons’ starting of course with our two Guest Designers:
Faye Whittaker CD

Crafting World's 'Through the year with Seraphina'

Joanna Sheen's Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady

Serif Craftscapes Summer seasides

CD's used - Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady by Joanna Sheen and La Pashe for the blossom.

CD 'Forest Friends' Collection1 Cupcake Crafting

We hope that you will join in with us, have fun,  and please link to your post and not to your Blog.    Please, please use something from a CD somewhere, however small, in the making of your card or project and give the CD credit. Entries that do not include the use of a CD, although welcome to see, will not be considered for any prize on offer and the team will not visit to comment.
We will be back in a couple of weeks with another new challenge and Wynn will have chosen her ‘Wild Flower’  Top 3.
