Welcome to all my blogging friends! I am now a Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator.

Sunday 21 July 2013


Good morning to you all on what seems to be the start of another beautiful sunny day.
We are really doing well with the wall to wall sunshine, I am loving it but guess that is because I got used to it whilst I was spending the winter in Spain.

Another week has flown by and so good to see your designs for last weeks challenge, I hope you felt cooler while you were busy making them.

Time for another challenge from us at CD SUNDAY and this week is the turn of
SUE T to choose the theme, which is

Our lovely TESS continues as our July Guest Designer and as always she has created something special for you this week.

You can see my DT Card Below


White 8 x 8 Scalloped Card for the base.
The backing paper and image are both from Joanna Sheen's - ENCHANTED DREAMS CD

This is one of my all time favourite CD's, each time I use it I see something on there I haven't noticed before. 
The backing paper is printed directly onto 160 gsm paper which I have managed to obtain from Staples and for the image, I chose Digital Pearl Card which I purchased from Craftwork Cards.

The image has been matted onto Centura Pearl Cardstock which I had put through my Big Shot using the Tied Together Embossing Folder.

A few 'Delicate Aster Die Cuts' have been added as embellishments and the centre's of the flowers are Card Candi.

Someone I know has just purchased the matching stamps and she has told me they are gorgeous. I am waiting until I go to the Craft Festival to get mine.

I do hope you will join in with us again, remember to use something from a CD in your design and tell us which it is you have used, (we may need to add it to our collection)

Do pop over to see the stunning creations from my fellow team mates, you won't be disapointed.

This is gorgeous Christine - and I've taken a fancy to those aster dies too. Been using Staples paper for a while now. 120 for bp's and inserts etc and the 160 for images and decoupage.It's good for Promarkers too.
