CES Challenges - Feeling The Blues

Good morning everyone well its Saturday so its time for CES Challenges & this week it is my turn to choose the theme & I chose..............
I dont mean sad, I wouldn't want anyone be sad ;0(
I mean I want to see BLUE, blue creations as long as the main colour is blue then we want to see it.
So do ya fancy coming along & joining in? There could be chance of winning a tenner at

Well while you are thinking & whilst you are here how about I show you what I did............ dont run awayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy......come back!!!!!!!!!

I have dug around in my stamps & found this little beauty..............plz dont shout at me but she has finally seen ink I got her last year but then didnt get around to using her........:0(

Isn't she a sweetie sking along with her dog in toe.........I reckon the dog is pulling her along......
'Giddy up doggy.....faster, faster'
Yes I've had a bad night & I'm tired........believe me I go really silly & laugh a lot when I'm

Anyway can you believe I've done a crimbo card.........yayyyy me.....ta daaaaa
The gorgeous flower I spritzed with Glimmer Mist & edged the the petal with a bit of white acrylic paint.
All the flowers except the tiny blue ones are all from Crafty Emma's Store.

The oh so beautiful paper is Webster Pages 'Santa & Sweet Season' 

This is 'Skating Along' from LOTV & she has been coloured with Copics.
I tried not do too much blue in the sky as its snowing lol. I've added stardust stickles to all her fur then I made a glitter snowflake & dotted glossy accents around the image & covered some with glass glitter to imitate snow.....thought it would be nice to have it snowing lol. This def sparkles lol.
The ice I've got the sky reflecting in it, altho you cant really see it much.

The pretty lace I won & I threaded bakers twine up & over the holes in the centre. Bakers Twine & 6x6 scalloped card is available from Crafty Emma' Store.
 Well thats it from me please pop over to see my fab teamies creations they are all just gorgeous.
Hope you will find time to play along with us this week, we look forward to seeing all your fab creations.

Thannk you sooooo much for stopping by big hugs to you all mmwah
Tatty bye for now x0x0x0x
