CD Sunday - Through the Window


Jocelyn has chosen her Top 3 and they are:

1.  Wicked Witch
2.  Pauline
3.  Wynn

Well done Anne.  Please let Jocelyn have your details via our email and she has a little gift for you.  Here it is in case you have forgotten it.

Good Morning and welcome to CD Sunday and hopefully if all has gone well and I haven't pressed any wrong buttons it won't be a new look CD Sunday.
There is such a lot to tell you that I think you may need a coffee and a comfortable seat.

First of all we would like to announce our new Design Team Member - Sue from Sue's Crafty Corner.   Welcome Sue.   We know that your wonderful card making style and expertise are going to add such a lot to our team.   
A really big thank you to all who put their names forward for consideration and we are just sorry that we can't use everyone.   We have been  flattered that so many very talented crafters wished to join us.

Second we welcome our Guest Designer for April - Margaret of Margaret's Designer Cards. As well as making some really great and innavotive cards Margaret is also experienced in tatting.  Please have a look at the work displayed on her Blog.

Thirdly to announce our Sponsor for!!

It is a special birthday for me this month (yes! one with 0) so I asked the team if I could be a sponsor as part of my celebrations.
The prize for the best card will be a current CD of the winners choice to the value of £15.99.  The team will be choosing the winning card instead of the random thingie.  My preference and they kindly agreed. I will be back during next week to announce the winner.  Good luck.

Last but not least - thank you all for your wonderful creations and interpretations on the 'Sugar and Spice' theme and Jocelyn will be choosing her Top 3 soon and I will post the result during the week.  May I also say it was how nice it was to see some some old friends back again.

That's enough from me now except to show you what the team have come up with for this theme and as always we start with our Guest Designer -  so take it away Margaret:

                                                                         Sue T
                                            MCS Klever Konstruction Framed Flowers Cd

                                                            JS Cd - Holly Pond Hill

Just the usual things to remember -  please link to your post and not your blog, I know we say this every week but we still have people who link to the blog which means we have to trawl through posts to find the entry at times.  Please, please use something from a CD somewhere in the making of your project and give the CD credit. We still get the odd entry that has not had a CD used in the making and although they are lovely to see they won't be considered for receiving any prizes on offer and the team will not visit to comment. 
If I haven't been fired I will be back next week.
