CES Challenges ~ 'Entertain Us!' & DigiStamp Boutique DT...

Hi everyone. Another week gone by and I've been quiet on the blog front again...sorry! 
This week I have been busy;
A) Getting electrocuted by a faulty shower,
B) Searching for new shower same make & model as faulty one,
C) Trying to get plumber to fit new shower at short notice.

Apparently the fault our shower developed could have been lethal but thankfully I just got a small electric shock when pressing the 'stop' button. At first I thought the tingling in my hand was due to a problem I wake up with some mornings, (I get numb tingling hands, and arm) so I thought I'd press the button again just to check, and yep, definitely an electric shock! Just glad it happened to me and not the kids. We rely on having quick showers being six of us, so we had to get it sorted pronto.

So here's this weeks make, my DT card for CES Challenges.

Our lovely DT member Caroline has picked a fab theme this week;

'Entertain Us!' - Song or Film Inspired

As always the winner of this weeks challenge will receive a lovely voucher to spend at Crafty Emma's Store.

My card is song inspired - David Essex, 'A Winter's Tale ' (or 'tail' because of the doggy....get it??)  

I have used one of the very popular new images from DigiStamp Boutique - Hattie & Buddy
I used my Copics to colour and a silver Pearl Pen & Stickles to add detail.

Other Ingredients;
Card Candi,
Glitter Snowflake,
(all above from Emma's Store)
Memory Box Dies - Bianca Snowflake & Elegant Scroll (available at Oyster Stamps),
Pink Petticoat digital papers printed onto linen card,
Dark brown card,
Glitter Card,
Metal Corner,
Pink Seam Binding,

I am in love with Memory Box dies at the moment. I love how detailed they are.

Can't wait to see which songs or films inspire you!
Lot's of ideas by the rest of the DT over on the CES Challenge blog.
I'll catch up with you as soon as I can but off out tonight for fireworks & fun.
Hope you have fun too if you are celebrating Bonfire night.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
