Hi guess what its me again.....lol....please dont cry this post WILL be shorter you cant count the pics tho lol.
Well this is our 1st challenge of 2011 over at CES Challenges this week so from all the girlies at CES we would like to wish you all a Happy New Year.
Thank you so much for all your fabulous entries they were amazing, sorry if we all didnt get around to you but with the crimbo hols it was just soooo hectic. We promise that our normal service has resumed tho lol.
This week Emma has set the challenge which is....
'All Creatures Great & Small'
we are sponsored this week by 'Doodle Pantry' & the winner will receive $15 to spend in their store, ow fab is that. I totally forgot to use 1 of their fab images tho.....oops!!
Its cus I wanted to use a fab new stamp that I got off hubby for crimbo, he is soooo cute...
Isn't he just the cutest...... I absolutely adore Henry which hubby got from here
I followed a fabuous sketch for this & went girly on it. I am thinking of start selling my cards I'm not sure yet but I have so many boxed up but my confidence in my cards are really low.....so low that I dont sell them at all. I sold a topper once on Ebay that someone in Germany brought but I've sold nothing since then!!!!
Anyway onto my card here is a close-up of this cute little fella.....
I've tried something different on this image & coloured him with twinkling H2O's which I've had for an age but finally dragged them out yesterday.....I have to say it was really therapeautic using them I loved it & I think they are perfect for this little guy.
Isn't that shimmer beautiful. As you can also see I hand-stitched all around the image!!! Yes sat & did that last night whilst watching Twilight 'New Moon' again lol & I was running mega late with my card for Emma, good job she is a fab boss lol. Thanks hun.
I also stitched around the paper with my machine, I actually did 2 pink rows on the bottom layer but you may have to enlarge it to see it properly, the second row acts as a frame for the top layer, the top layer just got the 1 tho. Maybe I should of used a darker pink lol. The hat pin I made myself with real Czech crystals which are sooo pretty IRL.
The butterfly is from my stash. The pink card I used for layering is so pretty again IRL as it has a shimmer to it, I should really use it more!!
Last piccy lol.
We look forward to seeing your fabulous creations this week over at CES Challenges, pop over to see the fab teamies creations they are sooooo cute...really are!!!
