Well good morning all you lovely people, how are you all today? For those out there that are poorly I wish you better real soon......except me & the eldest everyone is poorly here.....
Guess what I finally got to craft yesterday & managed to get my DT card done for CES Challenges today, altho my fabby boss did tell me not to worry but I was having huge withdrawal I've not crafted for a week cus kids have been that poorly. Natalie is a wee bit better not much so it looks like a re-scheduled appointment to the Alan Shearer centre....her health comes first tho bless her.
Anyway its time for CES Challenges today & the lovely Crafty Emma herself has set this weeks challenge which is......Male Cards We also welcome a new member to our fab DT this week the talented
Donna aka Donna's Doodles pop over & show her some support as its really nerve racking joining a new team.......even a mad house like ours lol.....believe it is behind the scenes lol.
Well as I've had major withdrawal from crafting I decided to make something a little different you know me & stretching the ode grey matter I get bored otherwise lol....also its not very often I do Male cards I miss my embellies too much & you know I like to embellish lol.
So here is my offering.....
Its a shirt & tie card lol.
I sooooo enjoyed making this & I will def be making more of these & it was so easy as well.
This is the inside & of course I couldn't do without an image.
This is 'Happy New Year Ben' altho I think he can be used for so many things of course you can get him from here Emma has all the new WOJ stamps in mine came days ago so I'm itching to at least ink 1 up & make a card with one.
He has been coloured with my fave pens Copics.
E000 E00 E01 E11 E25 E29 E31 & E50 & R37 for his blowy thing....I think these were the colours as much as I can remember.......
All the papers are stitched.....faux stitching which took me ages to pierce every single hole with my pokey tool then draw up the lines to look like stitches but it was worth it & really helps make it look like authentic I think.
Of course I made a matching box to put it in the only thing different is the shirt on the box lid doesnt have a pocket instead it has a tag which I used my WOJ tag die for. The sentiment is a Cats Life Press Calender stamp which I had for crimbo off Crafty Fabby Emma......I love this sentiment stamp.
Except for the brown & cream A4 card & the buttons everything else is available from
Crafty Emma's Store here. She has a lot of fabulous stuff in her shop I was there again yesterday shopping.....well whats a girl to do lol..... Papers are Basic Grey 12x12.
Well thats about it please pop on over to my fabby teamies who yet again have made stunning creations....they really are so talented you know.
I would also like to welcome my new followers.....(waving like mad) hi & thank you soooo much for following my blog hugs & kisses to you mmwah.
Well I'm off as I have my eldest son's hair to cut he's waited all week bless him but I've just not had time. I hope to play some more over the weekend but we'll see how my poorly babies are including hubby lol.
