CES Challenges DT Card.......Die-Cut Crazy

Good morning all my lovelies friends how are you all this morning? Can I just say a huge thank you to all my fabulous friends who commented about my daughters.....well the only word I can use is 'Attack' you really have touched me with your messages & from the bottom of my heart I really do thank you there were a few tears when reading them I can tell you. You really are fabulous & I really thankyou for your true support. We are getting in touch with the county council on Monday to take things further we dont think we will get anywhere with the school so we want an investigation into the whole really has been upsetting she is so defenceless......
Anyway onto my post & today is Saturday so of course its time for CES Challenges, thank you for getting us singing along with you last weeks you are really so talented.
This week the lovely Claire has set the theme & she has chosen.....
Die-Cut Crazy....
Yep as long as you've used a die then come & join us. I have done another Mothers Day card for my step-mum but this one is off her granchildren so cus of who its for it has to be special, I did the butterfly card off me & Craig so for the kids I have done another card & matching box.

I have finally gotten around to using this pretty lady.....yayyyyyyy
all materials used will be at the bottom.

Love heart I made myself.

She has been coloured with Copics
E00 E01 E11 R20
B000 B00 B02
E50 E51 E53
E31 E33 E37 E47 & a little bit of E49

The tag the kids will write on themselves & then they all write their name inside even Natalie does, obviously we hold her hand & guide her of course lol. Obviously when I send the cards in a you box I always line the box in wrapping tissue to make it presentable & nice looking, you know what I mean.
Recipe is as follows......
Paper by Whiff Of Joy, Image is 'Miss Ladybugs' Whiff Of Joy, flowers.
All of the above are of course from Crafty Emma's Store who also has a sale on at the moment so get over quick I put mine in last night before she sells out of the papers I want lol.
The seam binding & lace is from my stash, the tag I made using my WOJ tag die. The shape of the card & box I used using the Grand Calibur & the xxl dies & the next size down.
The love heart I made my self with AirDry Clay from Crafts & Me, the button is from my stash.
Well thats it from me but please pop on over to the challenge blog here to check out my fabulous teamies creations they are so stunning.
Maybe be back later you never know lol.
Will be round to see you soon as I'm coming a blog-hopping.
Thank you sooooo much for stopping by mmwah

Totally gorgeous card Vicky, love WOj's and don't use them enough even though I own a draw full. No crafting today, my Zoe has had a temperature of 104 all weekend and I'm struggling to keep it down. Am having a bit of me time while hubby is out mowing the lawn and clearing the leaves as instructed lol. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and good luck for tomorrow

Thank´s for joining us at WOJ Challenges :)
Welcome back :)

cebelica said...

Very pretty card! I love the idea of the dag - that the kids will write their names on it.

I hope the country council will listen and you'll get to the bottom of what happened. Something like this shouldn't be happening to anybody, especially not to someone like Natalie who can't defend herself. I keep my fingers crossed that everything will get sorted out!
