CD Sunday Challenge - Gorgeous Green

Old MacDonald had a Farm Top Three

Wendy M has chosen her top three for the Old MacDonald challenge and they are as follows;

 1st - Jenny Pearson (No 4)

2nd - Collen (No 9)
3rd - Michelle JM (No 6)
Well done to you all and Jenny if you can email us with your address then Wendy has a little something for you by way as a prize.

This weeks challenge is below.

Good morning all, we hope you are enjoying your bank holiday weekend and the weather holds out for us to make use of the great outdoors.

You made some lovely cards last week and we really enjoyed visiting your blogs so thank you for your continued support.

We are really busy this week as we have had a call out for a new team member, well we were in a quandary as we had so many great people show an interest that we ended up choosing not one but two new members.  I know you will like what they do and as their styles are very different  there will be even more inspiration for you each week.

Our first choice is Beryl, and this is what she has to say about herself;

I've always been a crafter in one way or another, learning to knit, crochet and embroider from my elders. Once I discovered computers back in 1995 I started to make a few cards digitally, it wasn't until 2005 that my niece brought some of her crafty stash with her when she came for a holiday visit that I got hooked on papercrafting. 
I love rubber stamping and have many stamps but my colouring skills leave a lot to be desired sometimes - so CD's are  an essential for me. And being invited to join The CD Sunday Challenge Design Team is a bonus and an honour.
Welcome to the team Beryl and hopefully you will have lots of fun with us.  

Our next choice is Caz and she has also given us a little bio by way of an introduction;
 I am married, have 2 sons, and 6 grandchildren. I retired a few years ago, after a very busy work life, I am so enjoying spending more time crafting. I started crafting in my late 20's, over the years I have tried my hand at most forms of crafting. For the last 10 years I have been content with paper crafting. Like many crafters, I wasn't good at Art at school, because I can't even draw a recognisable matchstick man. However, the world of creating has changed with the introduction of so many lovely craft CD,s, stamps and inks. I love to play, experiment and even get messy. I teach a weekly class of a number of ladies who feel as passionate as I do to create a nice finished project from the beginning of a white sheet of paper or card. I am delighted to be joining the CD Challenge blog Design Team, and look forward to creating regular CD created cards.
Welcome Caz and we hope you too have a great time and enjoy being part of the team.

Our guest this month is Sue once again,  we were meant to have a new guest but a few problems meant that she couldn't manage this month and Sue very kindly agreed to stay on and do another month.  
Now onto this weeks challenge which has been chosen for us by Wendy P, our theme this week is
