CES DT Card & Challenges!


Hello everyone. So my mojo wasn't far away. Infact it wasn't lost at all, just strayed a little I think. So back in my comfort zone and thats cute. For this weeks new CES Challenge  the lovely Shell would like to see "Woodland Creatures" on your cards/projects. Couldn't think of a stamp suitable at first but after a good old rummage and finding 3 totes full of stamps that I had forgot about I came across my Motivet Stamps. This is "Doraline with Ladybug". I just love these cuties and always a joy to colour. Have used Promarkers and Polychromo Pencils with Sansador on this occasion. Prima Reflection Papers, Daisy and Mini Carnations, Bead Spray and Promarkers all available at Crafty Emma's Store along with the basic Memento Ink Pad and Smooth Card. More new arrivals on pre-order to all which can be seen here.


I'm running low on these scrabble tiles from Papermania. Will have to google later as I love them for a bit if dimension.
So nice to be back in the zone and I've a box load of new stash to get threw as well including the new Zutter Electric Distressing Tool. Not enough hours in the day and what with all the other unused stamps I've just found I should be in my element right now.

Heres a few challenges;
By The Cute and Girly - Things with Wings
Bling It On - Anything Goes
Fuzzy Wuzzy - Get Punchy
Charisma Cards - Ice Cream Colours (Strawberry/Chocolate)
CRAFT Challenge - Gardening
DYSU - Square
Ai Factory - Embellish It (flowers, stickles, dies and punches)
My Mums Craft Shop - Something Old - Something New(old stamp/new pencils)
Diva's By Design - Die Cuts and Punches
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Truly Scrumptious - Things with Wings
Stampavie and More - More Than 3 Layers
I Love Promarkers - Use Flowers
The Secret Crafter - Here Comes Summer
Oldie But a Goodie - Anything Goes
Card and Scrap - Punches/Dies
Stampin For The Weekend - favourite Things (Stickles, Flowers,Rubber Stamps, Dies,Punches)
Wags N Whiskers - Summertime
Allsorts - Free and Easy

And I got another 2 x Top 3 and a Winner Badges this week. All proudly displayed on my sidebar.

Have a lovely weekend and I should have a few more piccies of my garden soon. Slowly getting there and I am starting to see the transformation.
