A Gem Of A Challenge 30 ~ My Sketch! & CES Challenges 54 ~ Embellish Me More!...


Hi all! Many thanks for your visits this week. I do start to catch up with you all....then seem to fall behind again! I'm sure it will be much better when Ben it at school full time. He's just doing a couple of hours a day for now to break him in gently. My eldest Son's high school hours are much earlier start and finish times that most schools....and the girls are at their school till half three. I'm back & forth doing school runs for what seems like all day long! There just aren't enough hours in the day at the moment.....so I have killed two birds with one stone today and made one card to fit both of my DT spots.

First at A Gem Of A Challenge it's my turn to host, and I have this sketch for you to follow if you'd like to play along (many thanks to Janet for making it look all pretty xx)....
I decided to use my Ellie & Gingerbread stamp from Pink Gem Designs.
I coloured her with Copics.


Then over at CES Challenges, our lovely Claire has picked a fab theme for us....

''Embellish Me More'' (4 or more different types of embellies)


Emma has loads of lovely embellies for sale over at Crafty Emma's Store, and if you join us, you could be the lucky winner of the £10 voucher up for grabs!

Other Ingredients;
First Edition 'Christmas Treats' paper,
Scalloped Card Blank,
Bakers Twine,
Various Flowers,
Card Candi,
(all above from Crafty Emma's Store),
Fleur De Lis Nesties ~ Pink Gem Designs,,
Sizzix Corner Flourish Die,
Heart Tag,
'Just For You' stamp from an old See D's set,
Red Card,
Cream Wavy Corrugated Card.


Hopefully I'll manage to make something this weekend!
Many thanks for stopping by!
