Bah! Humbug! GD spot #3 Vellum

So sorry I'm so late posting this but I forgot it was Friday and went off to work, anyway over on Bah! Humbug! this week the challenge is vellum. I decided to to do a larger card for this one and embossed everything in gold. This card is for the mum of one of OH's friends who now lives in America and his mum is on her own, it started off by accident as David used to buy a box of cards for certain people but had forgotten this lady so I sent one of my cards down. Well she was over the moon and even took it out with her to show her friends so now each year I try to do a special card for her.

Hope you like it!

Pink Christmas

Here's a selection of cards done for the fund raising we are doing in work, I don't mind a bit of pink but I'm getting sick of seeing it now. I'm off to use some blues and browns for a change.
The fairy cards are printed off from MCS Winter Wonderland, for once I have just opened them and printed as they are on the sheet and put them together as I needed them to be quick cards. The others are using the same things I used for the Bah! Humbug! cutie challenge.

CD Sunday - Not a card and DT call

Good morning and yes another week has gone by so it's Sunday again and that means another challenge from us at CD Sunday, this week it's Not a Card.
I decided to make a calendar and for this one I've used the Jayne Netley Mayhew cd2 set, Joanna always gives us a choice of calendars on her cd's and this one has dogs and cats on it. I wanted one that would sit on my desk so used an A4 piece of strong board and cut a piece off the end to use as a stand, I then printed out one of the backing papers from the cd. Funnily enough this particular paper is with the topper image of the dog which is on the front of the calendar. The calenars print out as A4 but if you tell your printer you are using A5 paper then it just shrinks it down and I find it a lot more manageable.
I made a calendar in the same way from precious petals this year and a couple of my friends wanted one so ended up doing three, we'll see if there is the same reaction this time.
This week we are looking for a couple of new members for the DT so if you fancy using all you unused cds and joining us then pop an entry in and add DT onto the end of your post so we can come looking at what you do. I'm really excited about it as it is good to inject some new ideas into what the team are already doing.
