CES DT & Challenges!

Morning everyone, today we see a new challenge over at the CES Challenge Blog and its my turn to set the theme. I know we all love our Die Cut Machines so this weeks theme is
"Die Cut Crazy".

My stamp is from Sugar Nellie. I've had him for ages but never inked him till now (that also goes for the other handfuls still in there wrapper). Coloured with Aquamarkers on Watercolour Paper. The backing paper is from the new Websters Pages available at Crafty Emma's Store along with the T/H Tickets, Button, Ribbon and 6 x 6 Cardstock. Emma is also offering a 10% discount to all customers till 8am on Monday 28th March,
Heres is the code - MARCHSALE
I have used my Nesties to cut the image and the leaves where cut on my MM Slice.

Hope you can play along with my challenge this week and I do try and get to visit as many of your entries as possible. I can often spend hours blog hopping when I should be making a card but I get 'caught in the moment" so to speak.

I'll be back later with my Sweet Stampin Card so for now heres a list of challenges;

Phindys Place - All about Animals
The Stampman - Anything Tim
Sarah Hurley - Go Green
Lets Ink it Up - Die Cut/Punches
Scrapbook Sisters - Anything Goes
Southern Girls - Add an Animal
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Lets Hear it for the Boys

Swimming for Zoe this morning then and I've a ton of chores to catch up on.
Thanks for looking and back later today.
