CD Sunday - Inspired by Peacocks

Just Because - Top Three

This week our top three was chosen by Carol and she has made up her mind fairly quickly so I can pop it on here tonight, she has loved the chance to visit you all and see the wonderful things you've done. Anyway this is the three she has chosen and she has a little something for the 1st choice.

1st Jenny Pearson No:3

2nd Tindaloo No: 17

3rd Meg No: 5

I do hope you'll all take the top three logo and put it on your blogs, and Jenny look out for the postman!
See below for this weeks challenge.
Hello everyone and welcome to another Sunday here at CD Sunday, we have got yet another busy week for you so without any ado we'll get on with the show!

Last week we said goodbye to Debs, sob, sob, but there is a bit of silver to the cloud as we have someone else who is happily stepping into her shoes and helping us out for the coming month.  Our newest guest is Hazel from Hazel's Happy House and you just wait to see what she has done for us this week, then you'll know why we wanted her to join us as our very special guest. As with all of our guests we have asked Hazel to share a little something about herself so you can get to know her a little better, so this is what she has to say;

I have crafted all my life. My mother involved us in making things for the home, clippy mats, chair covers, tea tray cloths and embroidered cushion covers amongst lots of other things and I loved it.
 I have two sisters and one of them did embroidery and crochet but the other would rather bury her head in a book, no crafts for her thank you very much!
My crafting continued throughout my married life with knitting, sewing, wooden toy making, rag dolls, dolls clothes, you name it and I’ve probably made it.
 About ten years ago a young friend came to stay and she was ‘bored’ so I showed her how to make some cards, I used to make them on odd occasions when I was young but hadn’t carried on with them. I had so much fun showing her how to do certain techniques that I continued making them and stocked up on the all important ‘stash’.  
I retired over six years ago and my card making has now taken priority over other crafts, mainly because it’s more relaxing. I sit in my craft room with Radio 2 on and happily make cards for any occasion.

Ok now we are onto the most exciting bit of this weeks challenge as we are being sponsored by the very talented and generous Glenda from Chocolate Baroque, the team have been bursting to tell you and to be honest I don't know how we managed not to shout about it from the moment we knew.  Glenda has very kindly given each of the team a copy of her Peacock Summer Party to use and even better the prize is one I'm sure you will all want, three cd's! Your prize for this week is a copy of Decadent Brocade, Season's Greetings and Peacock Summer Party, now tell me we don't spoil you on occasion! 

Just for a bit extra if you need anything else, the first of the top three winners will get a copy of the Peacocks Summer Party too so lots up for grabs this week.

Right here we go with the teams ideas for you and we have something a little different from Carol this week, I'm sure you'll love it.

OK now it's your turn, you can make anything you like but you must use a cd and with such beautiful colours on a peacock you have a huge scope. Please leave a comment after linking and we'll come and visit you.


  1. WooHoo!!! How'd you manage to get Glenda as a sponsor? I LOVE her cds and stamps - in fact I think 2 of the 3 cds mentioned (think I'm missing the Decadent Brocade). Anyone know a way of getting rid of visitors so that I can retire to my craft room? LOL!

  2. Lovely prizes! Well done getting Glenda to sponsor. Great DT cards again ladies.
