Something Old Something New with CD SUNDAY

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
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 
'Corner Flourish'
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

It's good to have you back with us and two cards as well, but then you have a bit of catching up to do. I love your Eastern Treasures card and I haven't seen the Jem's cd so will have to check that out as it looks interesting.

Hi and welcome back Christine. I hope you are keeping warm. I love the the easel card. It's very elegant. The frame is lovely. Need to check out the new Jem's CD. Another on the wish list I would think.

Oh hw beautiful is that top card Christine. I've had this CD for years and have to say - I was dissappointed with it. I obviously wasn't looking at it with the right projects in mind.
