CES Challenges DT Card - Charmed

Good morning my lovelies how are you all? This is actually scheduled cus sometimes mornings can be busy & also my memory is like a sieve.........seriously I'm surprised I dont forget my own name!!
Anyhoo its saturday so that means 2 things...........yayyyyyyyyyy its the weekend & its also time for a new challenge over at CES Challenges. This week our super Carrie (who's about to become a mommy) set the lovely theme of CHARMED.
Easy eh.........just add a charm to your creation & come join in the fun.
I've used the beautiful 'Pricilla Pie' from Saturated Canary, dontcha just love Krista's images, that girl has some serious freakin' talent!!!!!!!

Papers are Websters Pages which I lurve & are one of my absolute faves. I've also added some fab muslim & some sparkly blue gems.

This beautiful Ragamuffin has of course been coloured with Copics which are my fave colouring item altho I am seriously thinking of trying out the Shinhan Touch Twin Markers when they actually get to the UK!!
I added sparklies to her hair as well cus a girl gotta bling, even a Ragamuffin, especially when she looks this pretty.

The flowers & 6x6 Card Blank are from Crafty Emma's Store. The sentiment I think is from Paper Makeup Stamps.....eeek I think anyway!! The little 'Angel Charm' is from My Crafty Heart.
Everything else is from my little stash...........sssshhhhh........

Now its not very often I know what challenges are out there til after I've done my card, unless I've seen a fab sketch on my travels lol. However a couple of fabby blogging friends are on a DT where they want favourite things.......well ladies here are some of mine......

Friendship Warms The Heart.........

Hello all you lovelies how are you all? The weather has been canny up here by the sea today, even got a load of washing dry.........then Natalie gave me some more....she so loves her mammy lol.
Over at Tiddly Inks this time they want to see fabric & I do love to join in their challenges so I've kinda gone Fabric OTT..........but what the 'eck lol.
I've used one of the fabulous Wryns, I so love these cuties!!
Its not very often I use an image twice especially when I've got so many still to use but this is my fave Wryn & I cropped her just a wee bit for a slightly different look.

I used WOJ Pennants to make fabric flags & hand stitched across the top & added small pearls.
I used another fabric to place in the middle. Fabric is from my stash that I've had a while.

I've added some pretty lace & lush ribbon to add bit more fabric. All from my stash along with the button & I added a little bit of Jute Ribbon.

This is 'Close To My Heart' Wryn I've coloured her with Copics & added Stardust Stickles to her wings. Well she deserves some bling does our Wryn

For my last bit of fabric I made a tag out of fabric using one of my Doo-Hickey dies, I cut out 2 pieces of fabric & hand stitched around the edge. I used a piece of cream fabric & stamped a sentiment on it, its a sentiment from one of my wood block stamps. I added some more Jute Ribbon & a button & tied some string through it & a Tim Holtz safety pin which is just for looks as its also glued onto the card.

Well I've babbled on long enough so tatty bye my lovelies will be round later to catch up with you.
Thank you for stopping by big hugs to you all mmwah xoxoxoxo

Yep then they sit in the envelope til this week, I actually got them on release week as well would you believe as well as others from other companies..........ssshhhh they are still in the envelope lol.

Anyway as its a new challenge I thought it would be fab to use these images & made the sentiment to go with it using my Dymo. Fence of course is cut with my Magnolia Doo-Hickey.

This is 'Football Edwin' which I originally got from Bunny Zoe's but cant find him, so here is another link to him. Psst Bunny Zoes has a sale on on some of her maggies.....

Lady Of Opal

Hi my lovelies how are you all? I'm having a real manic hectic  monday so I'm gonna try be quick lol.
As I told you I had been playing with some of my digi images & been playing about cropping them. I've not seen them done before but I did get the initial idea from a digi image company who had drawn an image coming off the page.
Anyway here is another one I've done......this is probably my most favourite...........
This is 'Lady Of Opal' by Sara Burrier & she is a digi image exclusive to Crafts & Me.
I've kept the card pretty simple..........for me anyway lol to show off the gorgeous lady.

The metal corner was silver I painted it with Gesso. The gorgeous 'Resin Flower' is from
Ribbon-lace & tag is from my stash.
The pretty paper is Melissa Frances 'Vintage Attic Treasures' oh & these are treasures they are soooooooo pretty!! No I dont cry when I cut them.............ok maybe a little teeny bit!!
I've inked all the edges with Vintage Photo & matted onto Dark Brown card.

I cropped her to show her beautiful hair, her pretty face & those gorgeous wings, I then mirrored her to face the other direction. Its amazing how different an image can look after doing this.
The original image is here. She was coloured with copics & added glitter to her wings.
I used a Marianne Design Creatables to make the frame behind her.

I punched out 2 butterflies & attached Hero Arts gems to the body. The large pearl is from my stash.

Well thats it from me this post has took me ages cus I'm rocking Payton-Lea as well while her mam & dad have done back down Yorkshire to get their new car, its easier her staying with nana & gramps he hee.

Thanks soooooooo much for stopping by will be round soon to visit you all. Hugs to you all

CES Challenges DT Card - Flower Frenzy

Good morning my lovelies how are you all? Well I'm running extremely behind so I'm just gonna get on with it.
I'm finally here with my card for CES Challenges which should have been on yesterday, this week it is our lovely Donna has set the theme.....
How easy is that, you just make sure there are flowers are your creation & we allllll love flowers!!!
I have used a flower template for my card, I found it off google but cant remember from what site as I've had the template for ages.........I've also finally inked up 1 of my Magnolia stamps, got quite a few of these un-inked so must get them used.......
As the theme is 'Flowers' I thought why not finally use this flower template. I cut it out of thick kraft card & drew faux stitching around the edge of the petals with a white gel pen.

The tag I've left blank until I know who it will be going to I've attached it to a button using Bakers Twine.

This is 'Rose Scent Tilda' from the Sweet Crazy Love Collection & she was of course coloured with my beloved Copics, sorry tho I didnt write the colours down I used.

Papers I've used are Prima' Sparkling Spring' which I got from Crafty Emma's Store along with the flowers & the bakers twine.

Well thats it from me we hope you will join us girlies on our 'Flower Frenzy'.
Will be round to visit you all today, thank you sooooooo much for stopping by & your wonderful comments you are all fantastic mmwah xoxoxox
