CES Challenges DT Card........Woodland Creatures

Good morning all my lovelies how are you all? I hope you are all getting glorious weather where ever you are at the moment. I'm sorry for being absent this week this pain really is a pain in the butt.....well not literally the butt lol. Yesterday however I got fed up & decided to decorate Jake's bedroom as his & Natalie's furniture FINALLY arrived on wednesday after a 2 month wait. So my weekend is decorating but I will get round to you all later I promise peeps.

Well I did actually write this post at 1 this orning but mr blogger did not only not post it but its blooming dissapeared so its a good job I've just come on to check.
So I will try make it quick from here.
Of course its Saturday so that means CES Challenges time & this week the theme is
Woodland Creatures.......boy I struggled with this one.....I do norm do creatures lol.
I found this cutie of an image over at Tiffany's Doodles. It is Owl & Branch I layered 2 branches up & the wol up on foam squares to give it some dimension.

Tim Holta tag been inked with Vintage Photo & staples added to the ribbon for looks.

Papers I've had for ages & only just got round to using them....yes I've slapped my hand.
They are Fancy Pants 'Its the little things' & I've inked them with Vintage Photo & put brown faux stitching all around the edges.

This little cutie has been coloured with Copics & I've added Glossy Accents to her eyes, beak, feet & to the leaves on the branches.
Copics used are E37 E35 E33 E31

Smooth white card, 6x6 Scalloped Blank Card, Card Candy & DP's are all available from
 Crafty Emma's Store she also has lots of new stock coming so pre-order now for 20% off retail price, pop yourself over they are gorgeous!!!
Pop on over to see my fabulously talented teamies they have done corker creations....really really!!!
