CES DT Card & Challenges...

Add caption

The first saturday of March and a touch of spring in the air I think. Today we have new challenge for you over at the CES Challenge Blog. This week our theme is " St Patricks/Good Luck".


I've gone with the green colours and a Good Luck Card. I just adore this sweet Mo Manning Digi Image called "I Love It."I've been looking at it for ages and gave in. He's sooo cute!! Coloured with a mix of Copics, Promarkers and Derwent Coloursoft Pencils. The papers are 7 Gypsey & MME, scraps from my draw and have used one of the new MS Border Punches I got at the Make It Show. Cant remember the name of it now. I've used Bazzil to back and Pearls & Card Candy which are available at Crafty Emma's Store. ANd have you noticed, No Flowers - eek!!!  The sentiment I done on my computer.
Theres lots of new additions in store so go take a look and see if anything grabs you.


Heres a list of usual challenges, not so many this time;
Stamp Something - March Digi Day
Shelleys Images - Lots of Layers
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes (new image/old papers)

Phindys Place - Oh Baby


I've a busy weekend by the looks of it. A few packages will hopefully arrive today, although I was expecting them yesterday so hubby wouldn't see them and my 60 Draw Storage Unit from Crafts 4 Storage should be here today as well. Out of all the days of the week they had to go and choose today. He doesn't know yet and I don't think I can sneak that in seeings as he's gonna have to put it together. So looks like next week I'm in my craftroom having a major sort out. Its years overdue and I hate to think just how much unused stash I have. Gonna be ruthless though as some goes back years.
So enjoy the weekend, hope it stays dry for you.
I have candy at the top of my page if you'd like to enter.

Thanks for stopping by today and I appreciate all your lovely comments as always
