CES Challenges DT Cards..........Embossing

Good morning my lovelies how are you all? Those that are unwell I wish you all better.
Well its Saturday so you know what that means CES Challenges & this week our lovely Jane has chosen the theme & it is EMBOSSING.....dry or heat it doesn't matter we want to see any.
I warn you there are a lot of pics as I couldn't decide which card to use so I'm showing both lol.
I followed the sketch on The Sugar Bowl for both but missed out one little bit on the second one so only 1 I'm entering there.

A baby card for a blue one & of course I've used 'Bambino' digi stamp from Sugar Nellie's Simply Adorable range. I've only ever done 1 baby card before so I'm getting the practice in lol.
Sorry about the crooked piccy you will see tho in the next pic that the lace is actually straight lol.

He is coloured with Copics.

Papers are Websters Pages & these & the scalloped card I've used you can get from Crafty Emma's Store.
Footprint ribbon & mini blue mini safety pins are from my stash & the white lace is from Bunny Zoe's.
Flower made using Magnolia Doo Hickey with a blue button & bakers twine.
I used 'Baby' embossing folder & lightly dusted it with blue chalk.
Now onto a card for a pink one. For this I used a Sugar Nellie stamp, it was the 2nd stamp I ever brought last April & I'm so ashamed to say it is only now getting inked for the 1st time.......

This is 'Caitlyn' isn't she so cute, she's just lush & I cant believe its took me so long to ink her.

Papers again are Websters & gingham is from my stash. The embossing folder I used I got from Sir Stamp-A-Lot but they dont have it anymore so here is one I've found on Ebay, I also lightly dusted the words with pink chalk. The lace is from my stash also.

She has been coloured with Copics & I added tiny pink gems to each flower on her hat.

The inside has been done to compliment the front, it also has the same embossing folder inside. All of the flowers & the leaf I got from Crafty Emma's.

Well thats finally all the pics lol.....sorry about that peeps.
Please pop on over to see my fabby teamies creations they really are gee-orgeous!!
