CES CHALLENGE.............Challenge 8

Well good morning you lovely crafters its Saturday so we all know what that means......
Its challenge 8 already I cannot believe how quickly these weeks are flying by. I did however get my daughters main pressie yesterday I got her the Ipod Touch 32gig, she absolutely loves music more than anything so hopefully she will be really pleased with it......yayyy for me I actually have a present in woo hoo.
Anyway onto this weeks challenge, this week the lovely Jane has set the challenge & she has chosen....
Male Card
Thats right get making those male cards for all the men in our lives whether its your son,hubby, nephew, grandad.....etc etc.
I normally hate doing male cards but this week a lot of the DT have used the digi images that Pollycraft & Digital Delights designed to raise money for Yorkshire Air Ambulance in memory of Crafty Emma's dad who was tragically killed at work in September 2009. Yorkshire Air Ambulance rely solely on contributions, they are a charity who go above & beyond to help the lives of every day folk like you & me. They do an absolutely fantastic job they are our unsung hero's in the sky. PLEASE pop on over to check out these Digi Images all money from the sales goes to Air Ambulance, you can also buy them here.
Here are Relaxing Ronnie & Ronnie Reading......
They are just the cutest fella arn't they?? We didn't have to do 2 cards but I love these images & couldn't decide which 1 to do so I thought I would do them both to show how versatile they are....
Relaxing Ronnie....

Finally I have done some paper piecing, I've kept meaning to have a go at this for sooo long but always forgot lol. For this card I have followed the sketch over at Friday Sketchers & also the theme over at Cards For Men is 'Happy Birthday' so I've combined the 2 on this card. All the papers are from Crafty Emma's & they have all had their edges inked with 'Walnut Stain' distress ink. They have been layered up with card also inked with the same ink to match. The buttons are from my stash & the twine is also from Emma's.

This is with the tag pulled out. The smaller tag is printed off the computer & I coloured it with a Cinnamon & Tan Promarkers & inked the edges with Walnut Stain & put a small hole at the end & threaded some twine through & then it just slides back in. The nestie is actually my new Spellbinder which I got this week from Magnolia Crafts which I was pleased to find on the net this week as so many shops were sold out on the Magnolia Doo Hickey tag which is what I really wanted but thought it was bit rude just ordering 1 thing he he hee.

It was all layered up with 3D foam pads.
Ronnie Reading......

Here is another cute 1 this 1 I have done as a Get Well Card because he is sitting in his dressing gown I think he could be for birthdays, get well, thank you....so many posibilities & I love images like that lol. For this layout I followed the sketch over at Craft Your Passion. I have coloured the chair this time on this image, both images have been coloured with Promarkers & Copics. The papers again are from Emma's, as to is the Twine & the Dew Drops. The button is from my stash as is the gems. The sentiment I made on the computer. All papers have had their edges inked with 'Tumbled Glass' distress ink.

I printed out the image twice so I could cut around Ronnie & layer him up onto the 1st image to give the 3D appearence....what do ya think?.........lol

I put some glossy accents onto Ronnie's glasses which I've just managed to capture in the photo.
Go over to CES Challenges & check out what my  fabulously talented teamies have made, they are all gorgeous.
So come on over & enter this weeks challenge there is a chance you could also win this....

A selection of Flowers, Leaves, Buttons & Springs.....as they say you ave to be in it to win it.
Hope you can join us this week we would love to see what you create.
Well thats it from me I hope this has published as it was scheduled I have to take hubby to dental surgery for minor op to get his tooth removed, apparently the tooth is as stubborn as he is lmao. Will be back soon tho with another DT card so until then TTFN.
Soz for the long post peeps, lots of piccies lol.
