CD Sunday - 'Let's go Lilac' - chosen by Jocelyn

Good Morning
We would really like to start with two things at once but that isn't possible so first of all WOW! - thank you for the many and wonderful  entries into Wynn's challenge.  We know somebody who is going to be busy choosing - difficult Wynn but I am sure you will manage
......... and second what an exciting morning for CD Sunday team members and followers as we are proud to announce our new Design Team members who are -  in alphabetical order – Margaret, Meg, Pamela and Pauline.  We are so delighted to welcome such talent to our team and we are sure you will give them a warm welcome and your support.  We have to give them a little time to settle in so it will be the next challenge before they dip their toes in the water with their first team samples.
As we have such a lot going on this week we have decided to give you two bios this challenge and two on the next so here are bios for Margaret and Meg.

Margaret says about herself:

My name is Margaret.  I am now semi-retired, married, a grandmother and great grandmother, living in Somerset.   We love to travel and there's not much of Europe left to see.  I do various crafts from knitting, tatting and of course card making. I do incorporate them together at times.   I am delighted to be joining the CD Sunday Challenge DT team.

And Meg says:
Hi Meg here, I live in a beautiful part of North - East Scotland with hubby and our younger son - retiring 5 years ago after working in the NHS for 38 years.
I have crafted in one form or another since I was about 7 years old, my mother taught me to knit, to crochet, to sew and then dressmaking.
Retirement has given me the time to indulge in gardening and paper crafting.  I still knit and crochet but card making has become addictive.  I especially love CD's - there are so many images and papers to choose from.   I am delighted to be a new member of the CD Sunday team and thank them for this opportunity.

We will hear more about Pamela and Pauline next time.

Now we have a Top 3 to announce and it is for my choice of Challenge ‘Songs from the Movies’.

Quite a mixture of songs. Some better known than others but all such great cards.   Thank you for a super selection from which to choose.  And two of our new team members did not know that I had chosen their cards for 2nd and 3rd places  – but they do now.

Here is my Top 3:

1.          No:  7    Seafield Jo

I loved the moodiness of this card which has been put together in such a striking way.
2.        No: 13     Pauline

I could hear the first few bars of the music as soon as I looked at the card. Just a beautiful card.
3.        No: 11     Pamela

These cats are so cute.  I don't know the CD but these papers look great.  Love the pitty pat  paws background.
 
Well done Jo.  Please get in touch with your details using the email address in the side bar so that I can forward on your prize.  Also don't forget, together with Pauline and Pamela , to grab the appropriate banner from the side bar.
Now for these next two weeks Jocelyn is asking you to get colourful with her theme ‘Let’s go Lilac’.  A popular colour we know so we are expecting a good selection for Jocelyn to pore over.

Here are the ideas from the current team (our new team members will be showing off their skills next time).

Verity Rose from Crafter's Companion

Sue

ATC's made using House Mouse and Gruffies CD's

CD Ooh La La 'Teentastique'
   YEP - they  are definately Lilac. 

    
 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, don’t forget to 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 may not visit to comment.

At long last you all sigh.  I can hear them from here.  We did bite off rather a lot doing a Birthday Challenge and a DT call.  The DT call is over and we will be announcing our newly increased team with the next challenge.....

As promised we are moving up our DT call to the top of the page.

Design Team call.  If you feel that you have the interest and the commitment and would like to join us at CD Sunday please contact us via our email address. There is no need to include a special piece of your work – just make sure that you give us a link to your Blog and then we can look at your work. Apart from, of course, the must do of using CD’s please note that each member of the team chooses a challenge in rotation, then theTop 3 of that challenge,  and finally supplies a small prize for the winner.  

Now to the rest of the posting as it was last week.





Wow – thank you for your support of our 6th Birthday Celebrations and all the lovely things you have said about the Blog.  It is going to take a little time to choose our prize winners so please bear with us and we will make announcements as soon as possible.
We really do have a lot to talk about this time so I will get on quickly and to start with we have two lots of Top 3’s to announce. I hope in the Birthday excitement you hadn’t forgotten you had entered the challenges.


 *********

First is for Jocelyn’s challenge ‘All Creatures Great and Small’.
Here is what Jocelyn said and her Top 3 - 

We had a lovely lot of entries for my challenge for 'All Creatures Great and Small' which made the job of choosing my Top 3 very difficult but here they are:
1st No:  8 - Janice
I liked this card because it is stylish and a bit different with the addition of lace to embellish.
2nd – No: 16 – Lynn
This is a fun card which is sure to make the recipient smile.
3rd – No: 20 – Shaz

This is a great layout and I love the colour tones. I'm a big House Mouse fan too.

Second is for Sue’s challenge ‘Get well Wishes’
Here is what Sue said and her Top 3 - 

I loved all the entrants which certainly my choosing harder. Thank you everyone.

1st  – No:  8  – Tip Top
I do like the papers and layout , think the image is humorous and bound to cheer you up. 

2nd – No:  2 - Sue T
Flowers are always welcome and they don't come much prettier than these
3rd – No: 13 – Jo
Thought this quite clever to use the embossed papers for the sea and sand.

Well done to Janice and Tip Top. Would you both please contact us using the email address in the side bar to claim your prizes and then all of you take the appropriate banner for your Blog.
