CD Sunday - Birthday!

It's Our Birthday!!!

Good morning everyone, this week it's our birthday and to celebrate we are giving presents away and to make it ever so easy for you all all we want you to do is produce a birthday card.  Now what could be easier than that I ask you, as usual all you need to make sure of is that you use a cd for at least part of your card.

Before we go any further I just want to thank everyone who joined us last week, as ever your creations were stunning and we all enjoyed visiting you and commenting on what you've produced.

Now usually we make a draw for our sponsored challenges but this time because it's such a special challenge we have decided that the design team will choose the two winners, I know it won't be an easy task as we all have such diverse tastes but we do know what quality looks like so do your best to wow us.

OK I know you want to know what goodies we will be giving away so here goes:
1st prize

2nd Prize

I hope you like what we've got on offer for you and I need to make a special mention of the parchment items kindly made by Carol, I was going to try and hide these things in the hope you wouldn't notice as I'd love to keep them for myself because they are stunning and so much work has gone into creating them.
