CES Challenge DT card.........Challenge 17

Sweet Stampin post is below
Howdie doodie everyone. Hope you are all wrapped up warm cus its absolutely freezing.....even snowmen will shiver today!!
Well although my last post was scheduled I completely forgot about I hadn't scheduled this 1 it was late last night & I was tired & rather pooped. I'm still unwell & in pain but there is just so much to do for crimbo I just have to power on....but hey I'm tuff pmsl it just takes me twice as long to do anything lol.
Anyway onto this post know today is Saturday so you know what challenge is next.....
Thats right & this challenge will last until January 7th as this is our last challenge of 2010 we will be back January 11th it feels so weird putting 2011 lol.
Anyway the challenge this week has been set by the lovely Shell & it is everyone's favourite challenge.....well it is christmas....
Anything Goes
Thats right whatever you make enter it in our challenge we want to see everything......craft wise that is lol.
This week we have a wonderful young sponsor....we have the talented daughter of Shell her name is Didge & she kindly gave the DT a few images to play with....
This is mine......

This is 'Party Bear' which you can buy here....this is actually 'Christmas Party Bear' but I think this little cutie could be used for a variety of things so thats what I've shown you. I wrote the invited on in before I printed it out....isn't she sweet, or he if you do it a diff colour lol.

She has been coloured with Promarkers & stickles added to her party hat.

The gingham paper is from my stash which I've had ages & had totally forgot about it lol.

For the shape of the card I used my Grand Calibur which I love & I think I will be doing a lot of shaped cards lol. The smallest & last layer I used the co-ordinating nestie 1 & inked it with 'Tattered Rose' distress ink.
Materials used & links.......
Paper (not gingham) is WRS Japan which with the Card Candy, Dew Drop & Mulberry Ribbon (which was cut in half lengthways for my card) all of this you can get from Crafty Emma's Store
The sentiment is a set I won a short while ago from The Cutting Cafe & I inked with the same ink & then covered with Ultra thick embossing powder, my new jar arrived yesterday thank goodness lol. I also stuck a Dew Drop onto the tag for decoration.
Well thats it from us at CES Challenges but we would like to thank you for all your support these last few months we really do appreciate it mmwah. Please pop over to my wonderful teamies & show them some love, they really are wonderful girls & I have sooooo enjoyed working with them & Emma is a fab boss.
Love you all girlies xoxox
Merry Christmas from the gang at CES hope you have a great time & we wish you all the best for the new year ahead. See you in January.

Huge hugs to you all

Hi Vicky, such a cute card!! I love the shaped cards very much! Greetz, Frea

And this is a perfect cutie! Love the shape! You are very good to be making so many cards when you are only firing on some of your cylinders but you are very naughty to be opening your pressies before Christmas Day. Now go and sit on the naughty step until you can learn to be patient! Actually I bought myself a pair of knee/over the knee leather boots yesterday so I can't really talk! Merry Christmas! Hugs, Lesley

This is oh so cute. Love it Hun. I love the shapes you can make with the new machine but I am afraid I can't afford one. Lol!!! Have a super Christmas and I hope you will soon feel better.

Lol! that did rather spoil the surprise for you having the logo splashed all over the packaging. Companies need to cotton on we need things in disguise for Christmas...(something for the weekend Sir? I'll just pop this in a brown paper bag for you now! Sorry that's what it brought to mind!!!!)

Love your cutie card, I'm impressed you still have the energy to create something so lovely. Hope you are taking care of yourself...

Glad you are enjoying the Grand Calibur, I love the Spellbinder machines.

Hugs x
