#21 CD Sunday Plus

Good Morning everyone. I hope you are having a relaxing Sunday. Thank you to everyone who entered our last challenge. So many yummy entries it's going to be difficult choosing our Top Three. I am hosting this time and this is the card I have created to inspire you.



I needed a Sympathy card so I went to Crafts You Print and found this lovely image which I downloaded. The artwork is Lilies by Fran Dent.
I started with a white scalloped card blank and simply added the background paper and topper. A really easy card to make.

Please pop over to the CD Sunday Plus page  (link in sidebar) and see what the rest of the design team have created to inspire you.

I look forward to visiting you soon and if you leave a comment THANK YOU. They are always read and appreciated.

Have a crafty week!

Pretty Blues and Thank You

Good evening UK and Good Morning Australia. Our October challenge at Unstampabelles is 'Well THANK YOU twist is Brilliant Blue' So we all looking for those all important Thank You cards created using Blues.

Thank you Susan! Don't forget we are UNSTAMPabelles so no stamping on your creations..... digi or otherwise! Go on you can do it!

#20 'Anything Goes' with CD Sunday Plus



Good Morning everyone. I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I am off to a Macmillan Coffee morning shortly in memory of a dear friend's husband who sadly loss his battle to Cancer earlier this year. This such a good cause, as Macmillan Nurses do a fantastic job with end of life care.

 It's time for another challenge at CD Sunday Plus.

We have now changed our rulings to include not only CDs but also Digi downloads and downloads from USBs. As long as you tell us which source you used in your project.

Here is my inspiration for you.


Yes it's another Christmas card to add to the small pile !! I have used Joanne Sheen's 'Victorian Christmas Cards' CD for both the image and the background. The 'spotlight' images and greeting is also from the CD.

I hope you'll join us for this challenge and if you would like more inspiration pop over to CD Sunday Plus .....link in sidebar....and see what the rest of the design team have created.

Have a great crafty week and thank you for any comments you might leave. They are always read and appreciated.

#19 'Anything Goes' at CD Sunday Plus

Good afternoon crafters. Sorry I am late with this post.....life got in the way this week!
At Cd Sunday Plus we are now accepting entries for our challenges as CDs plus digital downloads or USBs. So plenty of choices for you now.

This fortnight my inspiration for you is a card I was commissioned to make for a guy who was 80 and loves Quiizzing, Theatre and Car Treasure Hunts! I bit of a challenge for me. So I went for a pop and twist card.



Some of my images came from Card Making Factory Deluxe and some were Googled images. The wording was also added using Card Making Factory Deluxe.

This is the front of the closed card.


This style of card gives you lots of scope to add bits and bobs to each matt. 

I hope you'll be inspired to join us this fortnight. Thank you to all who entered last time. It was great to see so many of you joining us. I think the 'PLUS' is a great addition don't you?

Thank you for any comments left. They are always read and appreciated.

Have a crafty week!!

#93 at Unstampabelles. Theme 'Time for Recess'

Good afternoon if you are in the UK or Good Morning if you are in Tasmania, Australia or New Zealand!

A new month and time for a new challenge at Unstampabelles. The theme is 'Time for Recess', meaning Apertures! The optional TWIST is Luscious Layers.

Here is my inspiration for you.

This a box card. I used a template from a kit I had used earlier to make the frames. A die was used to cut out the aperture on the front layer with a diecut window trellis added. The back and front were joined with a concertina card piece.. The window sill/box was added to the bottom of the frame and flowers added. The window view was a photo of a tree in my garden. You can get these cards in kit form from Crafts U Print.

If you pop over to Unstampabelles you will what the rest of the team have created to inspire you. There is always a prize for our challenges donated by our lovely leader Susan. So what are you waiting for!

Have a great week!

#18 CD Sunday Plus 'Anything Goes'

Good Morning crafters. I hope you all enjoyed the sunshine while it lasted!! We are starting our new challenge today at CD Sunday Plus. Last time it was a prize challenge so watch out to see who the lucky winner was.

As usual the theme is 'Anything Goes'. Here is my inspiration for you.


I used the Ooh la La CD 'Festive Funnies' for the image and background. The greeting is from Hunky Dory. I added blue ribbon matted on sparkly gold ribbon.

This is the matching  insert taken from the same CD.


I added my own verse to it using 'Word' then printed it onto the insert.

I have made a wee start with my Christmas cards but I know that I'll still be making them right up to the due date.

I hope you have a lovely crafty week and I look forward to visiting your blogs real soon./ If you leave a comment , thank you, they are all read and appreciated.

Have fun!

CD Sunday Plus #17 Summer Prize Challenge

Good Morning everyone. We have some exciting news for you today. 

We are not only starting our next Challenge #17,. the theme being 'Summer Holidays', but also the Design Team have decided to move with the times.

In future we will be accepting digital downloads and USBs as well as CDs as your source material.

Therefore from now on, we will be known as CD Sunday Plus. As before we still need to know where your material came from.

The next challenge is a prize challenge #17 and the title is 'Summer Holidays'. Here is my inspiration for you.



I started with a white card blank.The background , image and greeting are from an old Joanne Sheen CD 'Viva La Diva' ( I think this was a RAK from our lovely leader Carol....thank you C x). I used the CD Greeting Card Factory to generate the speech bubble and text.

I hope you have fun making your entries for our 'Summer Holidays' prize challenge theme. Remember it doesn't have to be a card it could be a scrapbook layout, a gift, a box, a tag, an altered book....anything crafty really. Just remember you can use digital, downloads and USBs now as well as CDs when making it. Tell us where you sourced it from and you are good to go for a mention in our Top Three spot.

Have a great week and fingers crossed we see some sunshine this week.
