CES DT Card - Challenge 9 + Challenges

Can you believe we are already on challenge 9 over at the CES Challenge Blog. Thanks to all who took part in last weeks challenge, so many gorgeous entries. This week the lovely Sheila has set the challenge and she would like to see "Buttons & Bows". The paper on my card are Basic Grey Kioshi. The image is Rosie Posie from LOTV, coloured with Copics & added Stickles. The bows are in her hair and I have added a ribbon & bow Rubber Stamp. My Buttons are made from the MS Button Punch as I could find any suitable colours. Circle Sentiment, Rose Buds & Pin are all available at Crafty Emma's Store. MS Tag Die,MS Heart Border Punch, Floral Lace, MS Dragonnfly Die & Wild Orchid Flowers to embellish.
My teams have come up with more stunning cards. It would be lovely if you could join in with this weeks challenge and the prize up for grabs is 4 Packs of Gorjuss Girl Decoupage.

We have friends round for dinner today and I'm cooking a homemade Beef Bourguignon. Spent over 4 hours yesterday having a really good clean & sort out in my kitchen & utility room. Looks just like a showroom, but with all the kids now on school holidays, I doubt it will stay immaculate for long lol. At least I have 9 lay ins to look forward to;

Heres a list of challenges and I hope to catch up with lots of blogs over the next few days as my weekend looks pretty busy.

Tellens Place - Buttons
Meljens Designs - Anything Goes
Party Time Tuesday - Anything Goes Birthday
Paper Sundaes - For Someone Little
2 Sisters Challenge - Anything Goes
Top Tip Tuesday - Anything Goes
ABC Challenge - Flowers

Thankyou so much for taking the time to view my blog & just to let you know cards are arriving for Daniel on a daily basis and thanks for the lovely emails I have received to. Crafters really are a caring bunch!!

Take Care & Have a lovely weekend!
