CES Challenges DT Card..........Children

Good morning my lovely friends. Yayyyyy its Saturday dont ya just love the weekends woo hoooo.
I have had the most hectic week poorly kiddies & poorly hubby, my sons turbo blew in his car which still isnt fixed as it needs a new air intake pipe which is what caused the damage in the first place & then there has been the fiasco at Natalie's school to sort out..... On top of this I've had the busiest crafting week EVER lol.........phew I've also got 2 creations to do over the weekend.......
Right anyway onto my post & as its Saturday that must mean its time for CES Challenges.
This week the lovely Sheena set the theme which is 'Children' so your creations can be for children or have children on them or both.
My mojo is wearing down a bit now I think I've done that much crafting this week lol......but just to stretch it a wee bit further I've done another male card.........check me out how brave am I lol.....actually I ordered this little fella off Emma & when he arrived in the week I knew I had to use him so Imanaged to get him coloured & onto a card last night......... yes I was cutting it fine lol.
Here is 'Skater Ben' by Whiff Of Joy, I am loving all their new ranges they are fabulous & I'm away to get their digi images later today lol. 

Used my circle cutter for the shape always forget I've got this thing its very rare I use it TBH. All edges were also distressed with me skissors lol.

The Happy Birthday is actually cut out of a birthday card that my hubby got for his birthday in Feb. I just cut the letters out & popped them on foam pads. The dude letters are from my jewellery making stash, for making phone charms, I just threaded bakers twine through the beads.

He is of course coloured with Copics, will try sort the colours used out later.

Inside is also decorated of course.
The white A4 card & brown A4 card for matting are from my stash, The papers are Basic Grey 'Oliver', it really is a fabulous pad, the blue paper I ripped in a slant to make it sort of look like a ramp. The papers, bakers twine & the WOJ stamp are all from Crafty Emma's Store.
Hope you will join us this week as we all love seeing your creations. Pop on over to the challenge blog here to look at my fabulous teamies creations.....stunning is an understatement!!!
Well I'm off to come & visit you all cus I've missed all your blogs, I didnt even get my night off last night, fingers crossed for tonight tho.
Will be back tomorrow with my first Kenny K DT card which is not a male card lol.
Thank you all soooo very very much for your wonderful comments you really do make my day.
