CES DT & Challenges and win some Candy!!

I cant believe its a week since I've posted a card. My camera lead now has a sticky dot on so we know who's who. Its saturday and not only do we have a new challenge for you over at the CES Challenge Blog. Its Crafty Emma's Store 1st Birthday and this week we are offering the challenge winner a £20 Voucher. It is also my 17th Wedding Anniversary. Actually been together 25yrs, met when I was 17.
Todays new theme is a Recipe from the lovely Jenny. We would like to see 1 Image, 2 Papers, Lace or Twine and 2 Ribbon. I have inked up a PB Stamp, coloured with Copics and Prisma's. Listed other ingredients below.
If you pop on over to Crafty Emma's Shop, you'll find looks of new goodies on pre-order with a massive 20% discount, and don't forget the new CES Inspirational Blog where us girls will be posting cards, projects and tutorials and if you would like to win some Candy, theres some of that to.
Our garden is starting to take shape and hopefully completed in the next week or so. Must remember to update piccies. Jessica had her Prom last night and she looked beautiful. She's off to Milawi on Sunday for a Month. Sure gonna be quiet without her but an experience of a lifetime though I bet she will hate living out of a rucksack, only with essentials for a month.

A few challenges;
Allsorts - Free & Easy
Crazy 4 Challenges - Summer Themed Car
2 Sisters - Summer Fun
Totally Gorjuss - Summertime
CardMaking Mama's - Summertime
Dream Valley - Ribbons
