'Christmas Things with Wings' at CD Sunday

Good morning to you from a lovely sunny Cyprus. We can't believe the weather for November.....beautiful. It's cold at night tho so still have to have a fire on in the evening and a few more covers on the bed. But the days are lovely!

Thank you for joining our challenge last time 'Add a stamp'. Carol will choose her Top Three and let you know in two weeks. Meanwhile Jocelyn has chosen her Top Three for 'Autumn Leaves' and it's up on the blog now.

This time at CD Sunday we are asking you to think of Christmas.....so no surprise there!! Jane wants you to add something with wings to your Christmas creation. It doesn't have to be a card. It could be a wall hanging, tree decoration ....anything really just as long as it says Christmas and you use a CD.
Don't forget there's always a super prize on offer donated by our design team.

Other exciting news too!! We are trying to go into the world of Facebook, as this seems the way to go in the future for our challenge blog. It hasn't been easy and Jane and Pamela have been tearing their hair out trying to get to grips with it all. Well done to them as I wouldn't know where to start! They may have managed it but you'll have to pop over to the main challenge blog to find out more details!!

Here is my inspiration for you.

 
I couldn't resist using a robin for my card this time.  I love seeing robins at Christmas time. They don't seem to appear here any other time so it's extra special when they do visit.
 
I started with A4 card folded and added a black matt to the front. I printed off the tartan background paper and topper from a Joanne Sheen CD ' Victorian Christmas Cards'. This was a decoupage sheet but I decided not to decoupage, thus keeping it flat for posting. The extra pieces from the sheet I used to make a leaf spray to add to the corner. The greeting strip is also from the CD.
 
A simple but pleasing card to make. I hope you've been inspired to join us. For more inspiration and news about Facebook please pop over to the main challenge blog (link in sidebar)
 
Have a great week and keep warm OR cool depending where in the world you are!!
 
Thank you for visiting and  thank you for any comments you leave too. Have fun!!

  2. I love to see robins this time of year and the backing paper sets the main image off beautifully.

  3. A lovely little robin - we have several here and see them through out the year. The idea to use the leaves as an embellishment is inspired! And yes the Facebook paage is up and running.

  6. Lovely Christmas card, I was going to ask if you have robins in Cyprus but Carol asked and I see your reply.
    I wish we had your weather, it's very dull damp and miserable today at least the rain has stopped for now.

  7. A beautiful card - and I have to laugh at myself here because I was thinking "What a lovely image, I must look out for that" and then realised it's a CD I already own. But Joanna's CDS always have so much on them it's difficult to remember everything!
