CES - week 2 and had a lovely week!!

Yes, we got back last night and have had a wonderful week in the sunshine - and no children saying I don't want to do that/go there etc!!  Missed them though!  I've also come back to lots of great crafty news - I won Clare's Birthday candy, (so thrilled!), I won at Sketch and Stash, and some lovely peeps have sent me some awards which I'll post a little later! 

On to my card for Crafty Emma's Store Challenge this week, which I made before we went away.  The theme for this week is Floral Frenzy so we want to see lots of beautiful flowers on your creations. I didn't manage to comment much on last week's entries but I know there were some amazing makes, so remember to check out the challenge blog to see who was the lucky winner.  Our prize this week is a Basic Grey Card Kit - gorgeous!

For my card, I used this super cute Elizabeth Bell image for SCAD, Danni - I coloured her with Aqua Markers and then used Prima Fairy Flora papers to layer up the image!!  Both the AMs and these gorgeous papers are available from Emma's store here.  I punched around the edges with Martha Stewart punches and then raided my flower stash for the floral frenzy!! 

There are some wonderful DT creations to be viewed this week - so don't forget to check them out on the challenge blog

Right, I must go and get in the shower, as DD Emily is due back from Ibiza at lunchtime so need to look presentable!!  Catch up with you later!

I LOVE the colour palette of this card - it's like a New England skyline with the soft autumn colours against a vivid blue sky. Beautiful colourwork with those Aquamarkers on the image, lovely papers with the punched edging and gorgeous flowers. It's a beauty, girlie! Love Lesley x
