CES DT Piece (Tag) & Challenges

(Click photo for a much clearer picture)
Week 7 over at the CES Challenge Blog and this week teammate Kaylou has chosen the theme "Tags". We would like to see either a tag on your project or perhaps you'd prefer to make a tag which is what I've gone with although I think I may use this as a bookmark.
This is Mo Mannings "Bossy", what a wonderful stamp to own. She's been coloured with Aquamarkers onto Cartridge paper and a white pen for her cheeks.

The background was made with the Field of Sky Stamp. I bought this many years ago and spent a good 1/2hr looking for it as it was perfect for the delicate background I wanted to create. The postage stamp is Paper Artsy. Little Boy Charm & Gold Bead Spray are both available from Crafty Emma's Store and all the other bits from stash. Stickled as always.
Its not the best photo and is so much prettier IRL. Thought I may give this to my DD Zoe for her school book.
My DT buddies have great examples to share with you. Pop on over to the CES Challenge blog if you'd like a peek. Pollycraft are this weeks Sponsors and they are giving 5 digi images to one winner.

Her is my list of challenges. (I've nearly 200 active in my sidebar if you looking for more);

MAWTT - Anything But a Card
Ellephantastic - Anything Goes
Kaboodle Doodle - Celebrate the Colours of Fall
Crafty Cardmakers - Step Away From the Square
Fun with Shapes & More - Your First Stamp
Allsorts Challenge - Inspiration from Song Title (B/Street Boys-I want it that way)

Well, thats it from me today. Thought we were in for a good weekend but grey & misty atm.
Hope it improves later as I want hubby to wash my new car & mow the lawn!
