Challenge Day at CES and Basic Grey Challenges

This is my DT card for both CES and Basic Grey Challenges today.  The theme at CES is Raise Your Glasses and at BG, Celebrations - a match made in heaven for me!!  You may also recall that we had a Bavarian Beerfest here last weekend to celebrate my son Harry's 21st, and this image reminded me so much of how the girls dressed up that I had to use it!!  She's been in my stash for years and is part of a digi set called Holly and Maddison's World tour from Charmed Cards and Crafts.  And here'a a pic of the birthday boy and my daughter, Holly, on the left, and Harry's girlfriend, Katie on the right.


They dressed up our car port to look like a Beer Cellar, with signs and everything!!  Don't the girls look great and you can see why they inspired my card!!
I've used loads of goodies from Crafty Emma's Store, including the Basic Grey Nordic Holiday pad ( which is so yummy!) the petal point card blank, Glamour Dust, Diamante Gems and Card Candy. The white part of her dress is completed crystal glamour dusted and looks so pretty and sparkly, and the beer has some of the gold version. The poinsettas are a Marianne Creatable set, and the edging at the top is a Tim Holtz Icicle On The Edge die.
You could win a £10 voucher to spend in Emma's On-line store if you play along with us at CES challenges.



At Basic Grey, we are sponsored by our regular sponsor, Simon Says Stamps with a$25 dollar voucher to spend there if you are lucky enough to win.

 Of course you can, like me, play along with both and double your chances to win a little spendette!!
My teamies, as always have made some awesome cards to inspire you and get the old creative juices going so don't forget to pop over to both Challenges and feast your eyes!!
Speaking of eyes, I have an eye test this morning, think mine have really deteriorated recently - I spend too much time on line!!
