CES Challenges DT Cards..........Embossing

Good morning my lovelies how are you all? Those that are unwell I wish you all better.
Well its Saturday so you know what that means CES Challenges & this week our lovely Jane has chosen the theme & it is EMBOSSING.....dry or heat it doesn't matter we want to see any.
I warn you there are a lot of pics as I couldn't decide which card to use so I'm showing both lol.
I followed the sketch on The Sugar Bowl for both but missed out one little bit on the second one so only 1 I'm entering there.

A baby card for a blue one & of course I've used 'Bambino' digi stamp from Sugar Nellie's Simply Adorable range. I've only ever done 1 baby card before so I'm getting the practice in lol.
Sorry about the crooked piccy you will see tho in the next pic that the lace is actually straight lol.

He is coloured with Copics.
E00 E21 R11 B0000 B60 B93

Papers are Websters Pages & these & the scalloped card I've used you can get from Crafty Emma's Store.
Footprint ribbon & mini blue mini safety pins are from my stash & the white lace is from Bunny Zoe's.
Flower made using Magnolia Doo Hickey with a blue button & bakers twine.
I used 'Baby' embossing folder & lightly dusted it with blue chalk.
Now onto a card for a pink one. For this I used a Sugar Nellie stamp, it was the 2nd stamp I ever brought last April & I'm so ashamed to say it is only now getting inked for the 1st time.......

This is 'Caitlyn' isn't she so cute, she's just lush & I cant believe its took me so long to ink her.

Papers again are Websters & gingham is from my stash. The embossing folder I used I got from Sir Stamp-A-Lot but they dont have it anymore so here is one I've found on Ebay, I also lightly dusted the words with pink chalk. The lace is from my stash also.

She has been coloured with Copics & I added tiny pink gems to each flower on her hat.

The inside has been done to compliment the front, it also has the same embossing folder inside. All of the flowers & the leaf I got from Crafty Emma's.

Well thats finally all the pics lol.....sorry about that peeps.
Please pop on over to see my fabby teamies creations they really are gee-orgeous!!

Simply Adorable Thomas.............

Good evening my lovelies bet you didnt think I would be back especially this late body has just gone past the tirement stage now & I decided to craft to take my mind off things.
I have made a boys card tonight & do you know what I really enjoyed making it & I found it all flowed together nice & easily. Surprising what a good selection of papers & fab sketch will do lol.
This is the adorable 'Thomas' from Sugar Nellie Adorable range which of course you can get from Funky Kits. I do have a slight complaint which is a first as I truly love this shop, however on the digital side I think you should be able to buy 1 single image, I have tried a few times & it tells me I have to spend a minimum of £5. Whilst I completely understand minimum spends I think digital items should not have this & this then makes you buy at least 2......which to me is unfair. Good job I love ALL of these adorables lol & have to have them all anyway lol.

This is to show you all the layers.

Thomas is indeed a digi image & he was coloured with Copics.
E00 E21 R11 E50 E31.............will write the others in tomorrow cus I forgot them lol

Papers used are my new Bo Bunny 'Blast Off' this pad is lush & the colours are fab so out came my bright A4 card. Raffia from my stash & the bunting I made with my WOJ Pennants die, I used the metal die to cut out the paper & I drew around the plastic template onto card to layer underneath & attached Bakers Twine along the top.

Well thats it for me Natalie is still awake & not settled yet so I will do some hopping until she settles.
Thankyou for all your comments this week about my cards but more importantly regarding my health it really has meant a lot & I loves ya all mmwah.
Welcome to all my new followers, thank you soooooooo much for being here & I hope you enjoy & like it here.
Tatty bye peeps, take care & keep on smiling

Crafty Purple Frog DT Card..........Things Of Beauty

Good morning my lovely friends how are you all today? We had glorious sunshine here this morning & now the heavens have just opened. I've not been to bed all night cus I wasnt very well, dont worry I've had an hour this morn, but I have however caught up on my commenting I think. If I have missed anyone please give me an elbow cus my brain weren't working too well lol.
Anyway I totally forgot all about doing this post.....doh!!! So I will crack on.
Today it is time for Crafty Purple Frog Challenge & this fortnight we would like to see
Things Of Beauty
Now I was late doing my card cus of health but I didnt want to let the girls down so its a lightning quick card so be warned its not my best lol. However the image is the best.......cus when I saw the challenge I had to use my most favourite ever sweet pea image & is of course........

'The Love Is Gone' by Ching-Chou Kuik....this really is my most fave image of all Ching-Chou Kuik. She really is a thing of beauty.

She is of course a decoupage which you can get from the Crafty Purple Frog Store.

I used a framed nestie to cut out the black card frame & then layered her up onto that. I tied some black lace in the corner & down this bottom corner I a handmade crochet flower & a black magnolia rose which is so pretty IRL. I've also added bits of glitter to the image but its not showing up too well.
Please pop on over to my teamies to see their beautiful creations as they are stunning.
Looking forward to seeing your things of beauty this fortnight.

Thank you so much for stopping by love & big squishy hugs to you all mmwah.
Tatty bye for now xoxoxoxox

Crafts & Me Challenges DT Card...........A Sneaky Peeky.........

Good morning my lovelies how are you all today? First I will say sorry if I didnt get round to you yesterday I will be catching up this morning before I do my DT work. I was stuck up the hospital for 4 hours yesterday I had to get undressed 4 times & into a gown in different departments......I am now the 'Fastest dresser in the North......East' lol.It really drained me & I ended up in bed when I got back in pain & shattered lol. Still no further forward but the last test I had was a CT scan so depends what the result of that will be.
Anyway onto my post which today is for Crafts & Me Challenges & this week its us 'Rockin Rubbah Girlies' bringing you an easy peasy challenge of GEMS & PEARLS.
We all love our gems & pearls dont we & dont forget it doesn't have to be a stamp that Crafts & Me carry altho we really do LOVE to see them.
Today I have a new release stamp that is due very soon & is from the lovely Jasmine-Beckett Griffith

This is 'Rose Fairy' isn't she beautiful. I used Kraft card again cus I really enjoyed doing my last card & also I pictured her with white hair for some reason lol.

The big light has broke in my craft room so my piccy's are not great so I retook them in the conservatory this morning so thats why they are different to the challenge pics.

I used a WOJ border die to give a fancy edge to the card. The twill sentiment is from Crafts & Me store.

Her skin has been coloured with Copics & all the red is a copic as well.
For the skin I used E01 E11 R20.....I dont normally use E01 but as its Kraft card it looks really nice.
Everything else was coloured with Prisma pencil & blended with sansador.
I added glitter to bits of her hair & the rose.

The flowers are a mixture from my stash & Wild Orchid Crafts.
IRL this really is beautiful & I'm really quite happy with it which really does make a change for me lol.
Please pop over here to see my DT sisters to see their beautiful creations, you never know you may find more sneaky peeks.....
Hope you can join us this week for this challenge we love hopping around seeing your wonderful creations.

Well I'm off to link up then some hopping is on the agenda to catch up with you all.
See ya soonies, thank you sooooooooo much for stopping by mmwah.

Krafty hAnglar sailing by..................

Good evening my lovelies its late & I've got the hospital tomorrow so I'm just gonna get on tonight & not babble........
Tonight I have followed a sketch & a challenge over at Cute Card Thursday to use Kraft, now its not just use Kraft but put an image onto kraft & colour it with your usual mediums. Lucky for me my big bulk supply of kraft came today so I was able to take part, now I've only done this onec before so I'm still learning.
I've used hanglar boy from my sailor kit, this really is my favourite set from all the hanglars.

The fabric sentiment I found in my stash.....which I had more of these they are fab!!! The boat wheel charm is also from my stash.

I've of course decorated inside to compliment the front but not made it as 3d so its suitable to write on. All the paper is Websters Pages 'Spring/Yacht/Country' & I got it from Crafty Emma's Store as well as the Dew Drops & the Bakers Twine. The lined paper with Notes written on is also from the same websters pages.

hanglar has had his skin coloured with Copics, I cheated lol & the rest of him has been coloured with Prisma's. I have layered hanglar up so he is 3d altho you cant really see the effect here it looks fab IRL.

Well thats it from me I'm gonna try do some blog-hopping before I go in the shower then off to bed. I have to see a professor tomorrow apparently.....I ain't bothered what he is along as he helps me to get rid of these pains....wish me luck peeps.
If I dont get to you all I will catch up once I get back I promise.
Thanks sooooo much for all your lovely comments & thank you for stopping by that means so much.
Tatty bye xoxoxoxo
