The papers are Crate Paper 'Random' from Crafty Emma's Store. Big congrats to Emma & Steve by the way, who's little girl Olivia came into the world last weekend! Some lovely pics HERE.

A Gem Of A Challenge ''With Love At Christmas'' & CES Challenges ''Totally Gorgeous/Pretty Girls''...

Hi all. Another week gone by and once again sorry for not being around much in blogland. Have you ever had one of those runs of bad luck when everything seems to break or go wrong?? It's been one thing after another.... plumbing problems, a flat tyre, now my blinking oven's given up on me! A freezer full of food I can't cook, and four ravenous kids lol! I will be blogging more soon though, I promise, as little man goes full time from Monday. I am a little sad though.......but he's having lots of fun in his new nursery class and is making friends. He has been stopping for lunch this week and thankfully he's not a fussy eater and has been enjoying the school meals. Just as well with my broken oven!

So here I am with my Pink Gem & CES Challenges DT card rolled into one!

First at A Gem Of A Challenge it's my turn to host once again and my theme is....

''With Love At Christmas''

So I would like to see a heart/hearts featured on a Christmas card please!

6 Pink Gem Designs digis up for grabs for our lucky winner!

This adorable Pink Gem stamp is called 'Ellie With Gift - New Version' She was very popular last year, so Janet has given her a revamp and released her once again. She is available HERE over at Pink Gem Designs. I coloured her using my Copics.

The fab PGD Postmark Sentiment Stamp has been stamped with Rich Cocoa Memento. I think these are so useful as you can just stamp them directly onto your finished project for an instant need to mount and faff!

Meanwhile over at CES Challenges, Shell has picked our theme....

''Totally Gorgeous - Pretty Girls''

I have used lots of lovely goodies from Crafty Emma's Store on my DT card, including some fab 'Holly Jolly' Echo Park papers, wooden button, bakers twine and pretty cherry blossom.......why not treat yourself too? Emma has a whopping 20% off  SALE on at the moment. Please quote SALE20 in the relevant box at the checkout to qualify for the discount.

The winner of this weeks challenge will receive a fab Whiff Of Joy rubber stamp.

Other Ingredients;
Postage Stamp Nestabilities - Pink Gem Designs,
Martha Stewart zig-zag punch,
Memory Box elegant scroll die - Oyster Stamps,
Twinklets, applied onto the flowers using Anita's Tacky Glue,
Dark brown card,
Ribbon from stash.

I think that's about it! Hopefully oven should be fixed today if 'oven mendy man' turns up!
Thanks so much for popping by!
