Good morning to you all and welcome to our latest challenge over at
In case you are wondering where I have been for the last 3 months, I can tell you that we have spent our winter in Spain.
Good side is the weather, however the downside is I have bad connections problems so haven't been able to be an active part of the Team. Thank you to all my teamies who have accepted that I wasn't able to join in.
Anyway, I am back now and raring to go, so much so that I have two designs to share with you this week.
It was my turn to choose the theme but Jenny kindly chose for me, so it is a joint effort.
We are giving you another easy theme, which is
SOMETHING OLD SOMETHING NEW
so dust off your CD's and join in with us.
My first design is shown below
I started with a square 6 x 6 Scalloped White Card which I made into an easel.
My backing paper and main topper are from a Joanna Sheen CD called
Eastern Treasure - this is my Something Old
For my Something New I chose to use some beautiful die cuts.
The die cut behind the topper is
'Our Daily Bread designs' - Quatrefoil Pattern and is by Spellbinders.
My corner dies are a Christmas present from my sister, again Spellbinders and are called
The centre die and the topper were cut out in Spain and unfortuantely I can't remember their names and have left the actual dies out there.
This is my second design
Again a favourite 6 x 6 Scalloped Card in Cream for the base.
I cut two different colours of card and ran them through my GC using a 'Crafts-Too Embossing Folder
'Tied Together' for the cream and again the embossing folder is in Spain so I can't tell you which folder I used for the Green.
My topper is from a recent purchase from Jems Designs, one of their new CD's called
'ENIGMA' which was designed by the talented Sheenagh Hulin
I added Card Candi to the corners and finished the design with a Tonic Butterfly Die Cut.
I hope you will join us again this week and I look forward to seeing your creations and commenting on your blogs.
Take a moment to pop over to CD Sunday to see what my fellow teamies have for you this week.
Please remember to use something from a CD in your design and tell us which CD you have used.
Just hope I have remembered 'how to post' and Mr Blogger behaves
