'Past Times' at CD Sunday

It's Sunday and time for our next challenge at CD Sunday. Last time we had lots of fabulous entries for 'Anything Goes' and Carol will have a difficult task choosing her Top Three.

The theme this time has been chosen by Jane. It's 'Past Times'. Here is my inspiration for you.

It's another Christmas card to add to my small collection!! It's just too hot to craft here and I know lots of crafters will be already making their Christmas but not me!! So I welcomed this challenge as it made me seek out my Joanne Sheen CD Victorian Christmas Cards and thus adding a Christmas card to the Christmas box!

The white card stock was covered with the designer paper from the CD. I then printed the image and placed it centrally. It already had the border of red. The scene is a lovely image of Victorian skaters on the park lake. This is certainly an image from Past Times. Look at what they are wearing! All dressed up....especially the men!

 I felt that the whole card needed 'lifting', as it looked too dark, so I die cut some white snowflakes and added these randomly. The 'snowflakes' helped to achieve this I think. The two tiny sentiments were also from the same CD.

I hope I've inspired you to join our challenge. Usual rules apply, except that to be with a chance of winning a prize, you must use something from a CD and tell us what CD you have used.

Have a lovely week and I hope, unlike me, you are well on the way to making those Christmas cards!!


  1. Gorgeous card, love the image and the snowflakes

  2. A beautiful scene and card Wynn, it would make a fantastic jigsaw.

  3. I was going to make a Christmas card for my DT entry Wynn but couldn't find any images I liked enough. You're right the white snowflakes do lift the card. Besides I love snowflakes - any excuse to use them LOL.
    CD Sunday DT.
