CES Challenges DT Cards........yep double trouble today lol

Hello my lovelies how are you all? This post is scheduled as its now really 01.49am Saturday morning & I'm scheduling this before I go to bed, my darling princess has been some what of a bugga tonight & only just gone sleep & stopped screaming........I love nights like this lol. Anyway I will blast through for you.
Today sees a new challenge over at CES Challenges & this weeks theme is
MILESTONES..........18th, 21st, 40th, 60th etc
I have made 2 cards...........a bit different to what I normally do, but it is me & I like to have a change lol.
I dont normally do flowers but I got a couple from Just Inklined for people who prefer this type of thing.

This image is 'HoneySuckle' & the papers are Prima 'Londonerry'

Image is coloured with Copics

Decorated inside to compliment the front

The image on this is 'Magnolia' & the paper is Prima 'Alla Prima'

Image is coloured with Copics & fussy cut & put on foam pads.

Inside decorated to compliment the front & bottom corners cut with my corner punch.
Prima papers, Dew Drops & Card Candy all from Crafty Emma's Store
Lace, ribbon, all card from my stash.

Quite simple cards really for those that prefer these kind lol.............I personally prefer all my foofy bits lol.

Hope you will join us girlz this week we look forward to seeing your 'Milestone' creations.

Thank you soooooooo much for popping by I really appreciate it. I'm off to bed now lol.
