A Gem Of A Challenge & CES Challenges Sad Farewell :-(

Hi all...hope you're all well? I'm still mostly AWOL from blogland, taking a break to do some much needed DIY jobs around the house. We are in the process of decorating the bedroom that my girls share, making it all grown up for them....and also the living room at the same time. We need to get all the living room decorating complete by Wednesday latest, as we have a large black leather corner suite being delivered on Thursday. I think it will suit our large family better that the 3 piece suit we currently have (which I can't wait to see the back end of!). It's all been done in dribs and drabs so far, but hubby has some time off after this week so we can really get stuck in. I also want to paint the kitchen, downstairs loo and bathroom. I think once you start it shows up the other rooms doesn't it?..
So I won't be back in full blogging swing for a little while, and I'm being a really bad girl not having time to leave comments sorry! But I'll still be here with the odd DT commitment such as today's card, and I truly appreciate you taking time to pop over and see them :-)

So here's my card for both A Gem Of A Challenge (fab sketch below, by Gemma)....

....& the very last CES Challenges as Emma is sadly closing her store. Our final theme is;

'Anything Goes'

Steampunk Owl by Pink Gem Designs,
Webster's Pages,
Whimsy Sentiment,
Tim Holtz Bigz Weathered Clock Die,
Distress Stickles,
Tim Holtz Gears,
Gems & Brads.

With it being our farewell challenge over at CES, there are some fab voucher prizes up for grabs. Hope you'll join us with both of the challenges. Please do check out the work by the fabulous DT's. 

Thanks so much for popping by,
Jenny xx

EDITED TO ADD: Pink Gem Designs are having a DT call. If you are interested in being a part of our friendly team, please see the challenge blog for more info.
