CD Sunday - "Any Old Iron" - chosen by Jocelyn



Jocelyn has chosen an unusual theme and the team have produced a great variety of cards to give you inspiration – but before we showcase them thank you for your entries in Margaret's 'Enjoy'theme and she will be back with her Top 3 later.

As promised here is Wynn’s Top 3 for her ‘Punch it out’ challenge:

Choosing my Top Three has been a real pleasure. I have enjoyed visiting all your blogs and viewing your yummy creations!! Here is my Top Three!!
 1st No: 8 Laney
Most of my crafty friends know that I have a passion for different shaped cards and babies!. So this had to be a WINNER for me as it ticks all my boxes. I also love the effect of the layered die cuts giving it a lovely yummy texture.

2nd No: 5 Sue

I loved that Sue made the die cut image the 'star of the show'. The beautiful blue colour palette too was wonderful.

3rd No: 9 Seafield Jo
I loved the beautiful sunburst flower shape behind the image. A very striking colour combo too made this card stand out.

Well done Laney Please contact us at cdsunday2@gmail.com to claim your prize and together with Sue and Jo grab the appropriate logo from the side bar.
Now here are the ideas from the team for 'Any Old Iron' – starting with Jocelyn.  I think that they are all great and I am sure that you will too.


As always, please, please, do not 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.
See you next time.

CD Sunday - "Enjoy" (tea/coffee) - chosen by Margaret.



Sometime last year Margaret went off to foreign parts for a holiday and an unusual painting was on the wall at a favourite café and Margaret was intrigued and wanted to use it for one of her challenges.
Here is the painting:

CD Sunday - "Punch it out" (using punches and/or dies) - chosen by Wynn


First some good news and that is that Pamela has managed to choose her Top 3 and also to make a card for this new challenge.  We are hoping that we will see more of Pamela now but we are not pushing her. So here are Pamela’s choices for her theme of 'Do what you love':

1st  - No:4 - Carol
Carol said she loves colouring digis and I think her card shows that. I also really like the backing paper she's used.
2nd _  No:6 - KandA
Andrea loves doing decoupage. I like the colours in this card and also enjoy watching the birds feeding in my garden.
3rd – No: 1 - Rainey
Lorraine didn't say what it is she 'loves to do' but I really like the colour combo of this card and also the sweet image of the little bird.
 Well done Carol.  Please drop us a line to claim your prize  (email address in side bar) and together with KandA and Rainey grab the appropriate banner -  also from the side bar.
Meg will be here next time with her Top 3 choice for Friendship, Love and Romance.

Our new challenge has been chosen by Wynn.  Now we know that our Wynn likes her ‘wacky’ shaped and folded cards but it appears she loves dies and punches as well so if you can achieve both in your creations Wynn will be like a dog with two tails.
Here are the team’s contributions – starting with Wynn herself:
