CES Challenge No 8 - Male Birthday

Morning!  I'm a bit late uploading my  DTcard for the next challenge over at CES Challenges.  We were out last night (very unusual for me!) on a Ghost Walk in Guildford!  Not very ghostly, more of a history lesson by a sceptical old schoolmistress who claimed she was a witch - quite bizarre!

Enough of that ( and believe me, we did have enough of that) and onto CES Challenges - far more interesting!  The theme this week has been chosen by the fabbie Jane and that theme is Male birthday cards!  Always a bit tricky for me, as the men in my family don't do cute.  Always good to have a few in stock so hope we get to see lots of gorgeous makes.  Up for grabs this week, Emma has a great selection of embellies for the lucky winner, all available from her store - Crafty Emma's Store!

Again, as always, my fabulous buddies over on the DT team have made some awesome samples to show you, as have our guest DTers for this week so do have a mosy on over here.

Another Mo Digi image from me this week - good old Charlie!  And as it's a Mo image, I followed the great sketch over on the DP2 Challenge.  I've used lots of goodies that Emma sells (listed below)  at Crafty Emmas and she's got a 10% discount offer on at the moment!

Goodies used that are available at Emmas
Websters Pages - Hollywood
Sheer Ribbon
Star Charm
Black Dew Drops

Challenges I'm entering with this card
DP2 Challenges - Sketch
Daring Card Makers - Dancing - I'm sure Charlie is doing the Happy Dance!
Digi Doodle's Shops Best-  My Peeps - Person or People
Cards for Men - Masculine Birthday
Crafty Calendar - Birthday cards - to celebrate their year of challenges!
Ooh La La - Nothing floral

Need to get dressed now - being overrun by teenagers later as DD Emily has her friends coming over for a film night - on hubbie's new projector and big screen!!  I'm hiding in my craft room!!  See you later!
