CES challenge card and some news!!!

Happy Saturday and Happy Me!!  Before I show you my card for this week's challenge at CES challenges,  I have some news which I have been doing the happy dance about for the last week!  I've been asked to be a member of Mo's Dream Team!  Can't tell you how excited I am!!!


Right, deep breathes, calm down and carry on!!! 

It's time for our next challenge at CES and this week the theme of Clean and Simple has been chosen by our very lovely Donna!!  Now this isn't my normal style, I'm a pile it on and use lots of DPs kind of girl but have to say I really enjoyed making my card!
I used this gorgeous Whiff of Joy Uru image, so cute, which I've coloured with my PMs.  I then scored the card blank and simply layered my image within the scored square.  Confession time  - I thought I'd be brave and stamp directly onto the card blank but it went horribly wrong!!  I then made another border using the Baker's twine wound round Card Candi spotted with a white gel pen.  The image, Promarkers, twine and Card Candi can all be purchased at Emma's online store of course!!

Hope you can join in with this great challenge and don't forget that the prize is a £10 voucher to spend in Emma's, fully of yummy stash, on-line store!!

The great girlies over at  CES Challenges have made some fab CAS samples to share with you so don't forget to check them out!!

Another reason to do the happy dance today - I'm off to The Craft Barn in Lingfield for  their Extravaganza weekend, filled to bursting with brill demos and ideas (and a bit of stash shopping of course - it would be rude not to!).  Enjoy your day!
