Happy Birthday Lillie! and Bah! Humbug! CD Challenge

I just bet you thought I forgot, didn't you, girlfriend? LOL Today is my dear friend Lillie's birthday so I want to make sure you all pop over to her blog and leave her some love! Obviously this is not her Birthday card, but the current Bah!Humbug! (extremely challenging) challenge of using CD's or DVD's in your project. You ladies been hitting the Egg Nog again? Actually once I found one to use, it wasn't that bad because I didn't get all that creative. I planned on doing a snowflake kinda thing but while perusing my stash I came upon this K&Co. snow globe sticker which conventiently covered up the center hole. The glitter inside looked rather lovely with the shiny CD and coordinated beautifully wth the fab poinsettias I'd been dying to use. (A B!H! Spot Prize from last year, WooHoo!) I put a green peelie border around the edge and added a plaid bow. The DP is the DCWV Homemade Christmas Stack that I chose because of the glitter stripes. Pretty darn easy after all and something I never would have thought to use.

I'm also very excited to say that I've been chosen to be one of the Guest Designers for Bah! Humbug! which excites me to no end. What an honor it is to join those talented ladies! Can't wait to find out which month it'll be.


  1. Donna this is just superb - I love how you have used the CD - just perfect.
    So honoured that you are joining us as a Guest Designer for a month this year - you have inspired every week with your stunning entries to our challenges. I always look forward to seeing what you come up with.

  4. I love it! I had to enlarge the picture to see which folder you used to made the cd look like a door....but alas, it's just a reflection! LOL! Really...I must have had too much eggnog this morning!

  10. Ha ha - good thing I read your entire post. At first, I was going "that doesn't look like a birthday Donna drinking already?" heehee!

    Fantastic card...and happy birthday to your friend, too!

  11. Oh, Donna, really!!! I'm tired of telling you how beautiful all your projects are -- although they all are. I just don't know any other way to say it anymore, you're just amazing and so is this cd project!!! Oops! I just did it again didn't I?!!! Well, guess I'm not as tired of saying it as I thought! LOL!

    Thanks for letting us know it's Lillie's birthday. Of course I'm going to "pop" right over and wish my sweet friend birthday wishes too!!!


  12. You never fail to delight us with your projects Donna and once again, you have provided us with delicious 'eye candy' to drool over.
