CES Challenges - show us your Die Cuts

 Aren't these new WOJ Gnomes so sweet!!  I bought this one from Crafty Emma's and he was so lovely to colour and use, which of course, I have done for our new challenge over at CES Challenges which is to use Die Cuts - set by the gorgeous Claire from our DT. 
I've used my Whiff of Joy Pennant die and my new lacy edge Nesties. I've also used these fab new Prima papers, Melody also from Emma's online store - check it out, she's offering 10% off at the moment!!  Oh and Emma has lots of these Inkadinkoo sentiment stamps which are so sweet!!
The prize for this week's challenge is one of these lovely alterable clocks:
Hope you can join us  for this challenge.  So loved seeing all the fab song-inspired cards last week - had  me humming a few tunes that I hadn't thought of for years!!  Great Stuff.  Check out the challenge blog to see who the lucky winner is, and also the top three!

Can't quite decide what to do today - both daughters are away for the weekend, Holly is off to the Lake District, lucky girl, and Emily is doing Duke of Edinburgh award trekking!  Of course, Harry is away at Uni, so hubby and I are proper Derby and Joan!!  So wish I could have gone to the NEC but just a bit too far, given the cost of petrol, here in the UK at the moment.   I'll just spend that money on-line instead!!
Have a great weekend, whatever you're doing.

Hiya Jooly, seems ages since I popped by your blog, so many cards to look at though, which is always nice! What a lovely card, the sentiment is brill and I like how you've put it centre stage. Love the bunting too, keep wanting to do that but never seem to have the right card for it. Maybe the next one, eh? Great little gnome, looks adorable. We actually drove past the NEC earlier, looked really busy judging by the car park. Am trying not to think about how fabulous it must have been at the show, he he. CoB
