CD Sunday - No images or photos - chosen by Sue

Good Morning and what another  exciting morning for CD Sunday as our new teamies are joining us on the front line,  and we have eight super samples to show you what you can do with this interesting theme -  thought up by Sue.
Before we do that though, we must allow Wynn to announce her Top 3. for her  ‘Something beginning with ‘B’ challenge.   Wow – didn’t Wynn have a lot from which to choose. Thank you all for your tremendous support.

Thank you for all your wonderful entries.  So many  - thus making it really tough to choose my Winner and Top 3. I hope you like my choice.

Drum roll........

1.          No:  20    Monica Soto
This was very creative and good use was made of lots of CDs.
2.        No:   9     Marina
Loved the layout and bright colours. Plenty of 'B's' too.
3.        No:  18     Tip Top
This was a fun image and great layout....something a bit different.

Well done Monica.  Please get in touch with your details using the email address in the side bar so that Wynn can forward on your prize.  Also don't forget, together with Marina and Tip Top, to grab the appropriate banner from the side bar. 

Before we talk about Sue’s challenge we have two more bio’s from our new team members -  Pauline and Pamela and here they are:

Firstly Pauline
Hi, my name is Pauline and I live in Hampshire with my wonderful husband and two gorgeous sons.

My husband gave me a card making book for Christmas one year and my obsession was born.  I have been making cards for about six years now.  I also enjoy making jewellery,  home furnishings and gardening.

I created my blog Crafting with Cotnob to share my love of crafting and have never looked back.  I have made lots of wonderful friends and joined several fabulous Design Teams.  More recently I have started designing for a few Papercraft Magazines -   so now I get paid to do what I enjoy - it doesn't get much better than that!

I am really excited to be joining the CD Sunday Design Team because CD Sunday was one of the first challenges that I entered and CD crafting is my first love.
And now let’s hear from Pamela

'I live in South Wales with my husband of 37 years. I work 4 days a week as an Administrator in a seaside town called Porthcawl. Working near the sea is great when the weather is sunny but in the winter we can see the waves crashing over the road!  I started card making in 2005 and the first item I bought was a craft CD rom by Chris Warner - I now have more CD’s than I'd care to admit!  I now 'dabble' in other card making crafts such as quilling, tea bag folding, iris folding and parchment. I also like to crochet, knit and do other paper crafts like make bunting or paper flowers. I buy loads of craft magazines and use them as inspiration but adapt the ideas to fit with what I have in my stash. Currently I'm really enjoying crafting after a couple of months where I didn't feel like making anything.  I'm looking forward to being on the Design Team for CD Sunday after following the blog from the third week.'

Now for these next two weeks Sue is telling you that you can’t use any images or photos in her theme of the same name.  Now don’t gulp – just because we all did.  We have samples here to prove that this challenge will be no problem to you – as it wasn’t to us. You can use all the things that we have used – just no images or photos.  Don’t forget your CD’s though.

Here are the ideas from the whole CD Sunday team:

We hope that you will join in with us and have some fun and don’t forget there is a prize to be won.
Please link to your post and not to your Blog.    
Also, please do not forget to use something from a CD somewhere, however small, in the making of your card or project and give the CD credit. Entries that do not include the use of a CD, although welcome to see, will not be considered for the prize on offer and the team may not visit to comment.
