CES DT & Challenges!

Hello, I'm back today with this weeks card for a new challenge over at the CES Challenge Blog. This week Sue has chosen the theme "Humour/Funny". If I'm honest it got me stumped. Something I don't make many of, but remembered that I had some stamps from years ago (unused of course) that were humerous and I even remembered the colour box they were in.
So here is my card. The BG Papers, Promarkers, Flowers, Smooth Card and Memento Ink Pad can all be found in Crafty Emma's Store which is packed with goodies. Take a look in the pre-order section where there are tons of new paper pads all with 20% off!
I'm afaid I don't have a clue who made these stamps. Its an A5 sheet so more of them and I may one day get round to using them.
Pop on over to the challenge blog where there are more funny cards from the rest of the DT and we'd love it of you entered this weeks challenge. As usual Emma is giving a £10 voucher to be spent in her SHOP.

Heres a few Challenges;
Stamp Something - Something Embellished
Paper Cutz - Anything Goes
Craft Us Crazy - Anything Goes
Charisma Cards - Sunshine Colours
Dutch Dare - Photo Inspiration
ASFOS - Tags (image backed onto)
2 Sisters Challenge - Anything Goes

On another note today our Daughter is celebrating her 16th Birthday. "Happy Birthday Jessica". Its a happy/sad day for us as she is out in Milawi right now with World Challenge living with a rucksack, a small tent and a shovel (use your imagination for that one).

Hoping to catch up with some more of your lovely blogs this weekend. Now the kids are off and most of the "To Do's" out of the way, I should have a bit more spare time. Our garden should be finished by the end of next week and I promise to post piccies. All a bit boring right now as just mud and its all so brown. Cant wait to get my shrubs planted and a bit of colour in the garden.
Have a lovely weekend and thanks for stopping by my blog today.
Off to Southend with the kids today.
Am working on getting some more candy together so watch this space!
