CES Challenges & A Gem Of A Challenge!....


Hello all! I'm being a bit naughty today, as I have 2 challenges to tell you about but only one card. I've had to combine my DT makes this week, as have had zero time for crafting with much going on at school,with it being the end of the school year. I'll be glad when they break up actually! Then in September my littlest man will be starting too. Crafting here I come!!

So we have new challenges for you over at A GEM OF A CHALLENGE...with a fab theme set by the lovely Lisa....
'Let's Hear It For The Boys'!
We have a fab prize of Pink Gem Designs polymer or digi stamps up for grabs (please see the challenge blog for full details)

Then over at CES CHALLENGES, we have a theme set by little old me which is a RECIPE...
'1 image, 2 ribbon, lace or twine & 3 dp's'
A £20 voucher up for grabs to spend in Crafty Emma's Store, who happen to be celebrating their first Birthday this week! 


 So for my DT card I've used the very cute digi stamp called 'Winter Philip' by Pink Gem Designs. You can grab him here.
I coloured him using Copics.

I also added the postmark with a polymer stamp HERE at Pink Gem Designs. I adore these postmark stamps....just perfect for adding finishing touches to your projects. All inking and stamping done with Rich Cocoa Memento pad also available at Pink Gem Designs.


 From Crafty Emma's Store, I used Webster's Pages (Santa /Sweet Season), baker's twine, scalloped card blank, & card candi.

Emma has so many gorgeous new pads (MME, Echo Park etc...)on pre order at the moment, and all with 20% off!!!


Other items used;
Martha Stewart border punch,
X cut snowflake punch,
Bazzill kraft card,
Sentiment tag,
Raffia ribbon
buttons.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
Hugs to you all!

Hi Jenny, Gorgeous card! Love this cute image and fab papers.

I know what you mean about life being hectic with so much going on at school. My 2 will both leave their current schools and move up to junior and high school this year so it is going to be extra busy with leaver's services and lunches.
