CES Challenges DT Card...........Pink, Brown & Aqua

Hello my lovelies how are you all? I've been quite poorly again this last few days so I'm sorry I've not been round to see you but I will be catching up with you all today. Thankfully my op is in less than a week & it cant come soon enough lol. I actually scheduled this post last night on the hope Im catching up on some sleep lol.
Anyway its Saturday so of course that means its time for CES CHallenges......this week the lovely Jane has set the theme & its a colour challenge this week........
I didnt think I'd be able to make something but then at 9pm last night I remembered I had an image coloured from a few weeks ago that I could use, so made a card.

I also made this card for a friend for her birthday so I'm really hoping she likes it........fingers crossed!!

I've used Bo Bunny 'Gabrielle' papers perfect papers I think for this challenge. The flowers & 6x6 On The Edge card blank are also from Crafty Emma's Store.

This of course is Teddy Bea 'Your Wish Will Come True', she is one of my fave Teddy Bo images.
She was of course coloured with Copics & I added yellow stickles to her wand & Star Dust stickles to her wings.

The sentiment is Whiff Of Joy & the button is from my stash. The 'Birthday Wish List' is a Whimsy Stamp & finally got to ink it up. The corner was cut out using a Marianne die out of kraft card & giving it a splodge of white acrylic paint. Lace, kraft card & gems are from my stash.

Well thats it please pop on over to see my teamies gorgeous creations.
Thank you soooooooo much for stopping by I will see you all soon.

Hello everyone how are you all? These days are just flying by & I dont seem to get everything done. I'm so busy at the mo I havnt coloured for a few days instead I've been relying on my box of coloured images.......
Here is another from that coloured box these have been done for ages & I really want to get more crimbo cards done.......

So I used 2 Bildmalarna stamps 'Mimo With Stocking Cap' & 'Mimosa With Candles' I got these both from Dies To Die For.....I think lol but I cant find the Mimosa one anymore...........

The gorgeous papers are Websters Pages & Emma has these on sale at her shop at the mo. I've had these since last year but I'm thinking I may get some more while they are cheap lol.

Both images were coloured with copics & Mimo's hat has has Frosted Lace stickles adde to his hat & bobble. I've sprayed the Poinsettia's with glimmer mist & sprinkled with glitter dust. The plastic leaves either side I found in my stash.

The sentiment is from a LOTV sentiment stamp set. The edging at the bottom I cut out using a Whiff Of Joy die. A4 card is from my stash & the craftwork 'On The Edge' Card is from here.

Well thats it from me I will do some more blog-hopping before I get back to my crocheting, I have a few baby blankets to do. I have 1 to do for my cousin who is having a little boy in October, its a surprise tho lol & I'm making her a keepsake as well.

Teddy Bo Time..............

Howdie doodie all my lovelies how are you all.
My little yorkie man Charlie went the groomers this morning to have all his hair cut off & a pamper OMG he looks sooooo different, I actually thought Craig had picked someone else's dog up lol. They nearly didnt let him go cus they all fell in love with him.........he's got a brilliant temperment tho bless him......
Anyway onto my card which is for Teddy Bo........I'm actually on doing a commision for someone with Teddy Bea but its not a card but I thought I would have a break & make this as I saw the challenge this morn & just HAD to enter............

This is TeddyBoBea & is part of 3 tags & its called 'Three In A Row' which you can get from
Teddy Bo & Co. I have just used 1 of the tags.
The challenge over there is 'Black, White & 1 colour of your choice' well I chose browns cus I have this gorgeous new Prima pad that I was dying to use............

The label is from some ribbon in my stash & I just cut off a small part of it to make a label.

The crocheted flower I made myself a while ago & instead of using wool I used the thin crochet yarn but doubled it up to make the flower. Button is from my button jar.

Hopefully you will be able to see the sparkle on the fly & on parts of her dress & the heart on her arm.
I used a silver spica pen to add some sparkle.
The twill & button are from my stash, the bakers twine & the 6x6 Petal Blank Card are from

Added lace & black velvet ribbon at the bottom.

Well thats it from me I'm gonna try finish my hopping. Having to hop in bits at the mo cus I've had a bad head for over 3 days......I'm gonna book myself in for an eyetest incase its I'm taking a bit longer to visit you all peeps but I will get there.

Custom Made................

Hello my lovelies bit of a quickie as I'm in the middle of cooking chillie Con Carne.
I decided to have another go at one of these less is more kinda cards.........I know I always usually failed but I've tried to do a male card this time as I have had this stamp for ages & long time & its about time it got inked..............
This is a wood block stamp.......I do tend to neglect these they sit on my shelves crying!! Its by Stamps Happen & you can get it here. I did it in the same colours as I love the red!!
I love this stamp I think its brill for those male cards.........actually I think its brill for anyone who loves cars.

I layered the image onto a piece of grey card & a piece of red card & glued it to this 6x6 On The Edge card which I got from Crafty Emma's Store as also the card candy which I made to look like screws lol.

Well thats it I'm off to link up then dish tea out.
Will be round to you all later as I'm behind on visiting as a migraine kept me off lappy nearly all day :0(

Howdi doodie my lovelies I am running rather late this morn as my internet went down this morn & only just come back on. A friend rang half an hour ago cus hers was down & she is with the same provider as me lol.
Anyway me  is here now so I will crack the whip....
Of course its Sunday, the day of relaxation & also the day of Kenny K Krafty Girlz Challenges

Yep as many layers as you want....I love layers so my card come together so easily lol.
Our fabby sponsors this week are.........drum roll if you please..........

Of course not forgetting a choice of 5 awesome images from Kenny K Downloads
For my card today I have used the latest fantastic release of Steampunk images from Kenny k, my favourite set yet & set 2 of this collection is due beginning of September so watch this space my lovelies...........oooh I cant wait!!

This is 'Lady Victoria' I had to use her she is my fave....yeah ok cus she also has the same name as me...I'm thinking hubby would probably like me in the outfit lol...

The chain thingy & sentiment charm thing are Tim Holtz.........I'm good at naming things arnt I
Used gorgeous cream lace & a length of beautiful deep red velvet ribbon.

The paper clip is Tim Holtz & the flower I made myself with scrunched paper & tulle & distressed it with inks to make it look aged........

Isnt she beautiful.... I have coloured her with copics. The image she is stood on is a digi image but I cant remember the company.....I lightened it in my arty thing on lappy & then when printed it got a good beating with Vintage Photo & a bit of Walnut distress inks. I then give it a few coats of UTEE & cracked it....all to make it look old.....

I added to cogs from hubsters watch again lol....1 in the corner of the image & 1 in the top left corner of the card & added a gem to the centre.
The paper I used for this card is Bunny Bo 'Timepiece' which I think is perfect for this sort of card.
All A4 card used is from my stash.

Well thats it my lovelies hope you will join in the fun this week remember only those that use a Kenny K image can be entered to win the prizes........if you dont have any there is a freebie here you can use.
