CES Challenges - Snowflakes - and another gorgeous Tilda!!

Hello everyone - I feel so glad the week is over! Had an horrendous day yesterday - lost my cool with Virgin Mobile - a new phone and they still couldn't get it to work after 3 weeks and umpteen phone calls - absolutely chronic customer service. Lost it with them in the office!!   It is now functioning but I think it's  technology is a bit wasted on me!Then in the evening, we had a team building session about body language and there was the prospect of role playing and acting, which I just do not do!! So after being fired up by Virgin, I was ready to lose my cool again and  refuse to play along!  Luckily, there was alcohol present and the role playing didn't materialise so I still have a job!

This is my DT card  for CES Challenges, and this week's theme, as chosen by our lovely Kaylou, is Snowflakes - very festive and great to be able to add another card to the Christmas pile!

Another new Tilda - I am so in love with the new and very recent collections!! I've coloured her with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers, and used some paper from the Authentique Journey collection.  These are all available from Crafty Emma's Store, along with the Cat's Life Press Sentiment, the Divine Twine, Charm and Acrylic gems.The snowflake border is an MS around the page set, and the bigger snowflakes are also made using an MS punch. 

I'm off to get cracking on the Chrismtas Shopping today - I've barely got any full weekends left in December so need to make a start!!  What is it, 6 weeks away?  Yikes!!

Hope you can play along with us at CES Challenges this week - there's a lovely £10 voucher up for grabs for one lucky entrant!  The girls at CES have done their usual magic and have some great cards to show you - check them out here!

I need to have a good catch up this weekend, with all my favourite blogs, so hope to pop by soon!!
