My Craft Studio but no printing done.

When I bought my last My Craft Studio cd two packs of paper came along with it, now usually I look at the papers think how beautiful they are then put them away because it's a shame to cut into them.  Yes I know it's daft but I have more paper in my room than some craft shops have, I guess it's an addiction.
Anyway this time I have decided to use the bits and pieces and as some die cut sheets came too I decided to make a card using them. The die cut bits went through an embossing folder then I used Pan Pastels on the branch and the birds but the cage was embossed, as the background paper has a little embossing on in a champagne sparkle I decided not use gold because it would look too heavy so I did the bird cage in silver. The die cut corner is a Memory box one and believe it or not it is the same card as the sentiment but now looks totally different, the paper curls are done with the off cuts of the backing paper and the flowers were on another printed sheet in the pack, the sparkly centres are from a pack of gems bought from Hobby House.

I'm back with the team at CD Sunday

Good morning all, this week sees me back in harness on the team at CD Sunday, I did  really need the time to myself but still missed the blog challenges. I made myself stay away so I could really benefit from the rest and have to say it was a good idea. Anyway I'm happy to be back and with a good week to choose, it's sponsor week and this week we are sponsored by Ooh La La so the winner gets to choose what they want from the range of cd's on offer.

The ladies at Ooh La La chose the theme of Faithful Friends and gave us some files from the cd of that name to work with, I chose the Rottweiler as I thought it would make a good mans card. The design is fairly simple and everything except the little sentiment comes from the cd. I printed out two backing papers and put the spotty one in an embossing folder, the one I used was an M-Bossabilities one and I don't kow the name of it but the code is EL-025 for anyone interested. I cut a strip and made a rosette with it, I really wanted to put a number 1 on it but thought it may look a bit odd so went for something more generic.

I hope you can come and join us, after all a cd is worth winning and as the prize is a random draw you don't need to worry about your skill level. I forgot to say that we have a new guest this month and that is Wynn from Sunshine Cards and Crafts, she is very lucky to live in the sunshine as she lives over in Cyprus. You may not be able to visit her personally but please go and visit her blog she is a very talented lady.

Right I'm off to make a wedding card as I have an order for one and I need to make one for the same person as I'm going to the wedding too, do you find it a bit difficult to make more than one card for the same event and make them very different.
