This would have appeared sooner but yesterday I fell asleep at 7 pm and woke up at 6.30 am - then I had the busiest day today! Anyway, over to another fab challenge at CES - this week the theme is "Bold and Bright". Here's my take on it:

Been dying to use the Prima "Road Trip" papers (available from Crafty Emma's Store along with other fabby things!) and a one of the digi images and sentiment from Pollycraft "On the Road".

CES Challenge #20 - Angels and Fairies

Happy Saturday - thank goodness the weekend is here again! Another fab challenge at CES this week - "Angels and Fairies". Now I'm not an angel/fairy person but when I saw the fab new WRS stamps that Emma has in store it was perfect for this challenge!! Also used the gorgeous Prima Fairy Flora DP, Bakers Twine and a cutsie little charm - all from Crafty Emma's Store.

One lucky winner will win a 6x6 Memory Box paper pad of their choice - how fab is that??

Emma has some fabby new products in and I have to admit I do have a few on pre-order (sshh, don't tell hubby!) so get over there and spend some pennies! Please go the Challenge blog and check out the fantastic cards from our GDT and DT - looking forward to visiting your creations!!

The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge - SSS90

I know, try not to faint,, I am posting again on the same day (I might even post another one later!!). The reason is that as I work at the end of the week, I usually need to have all my challenge cards done by a Wednesday.

It was a fab sketch to use, and a change from my usual square card shape, from "The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge" . Used K&Co's Sparkly Sweet DP and Tilda, looking all shopped out!

Thanks for visiting!

Here's a little card rustled up using the fab sketch from "Cards for Men". Used one of the LOTV Sporty Boys Cute Squares and Smirk for Him DP.

This card would be perfect for my 2 who have become DS demons during the holidays!!
