I'm Late, I'm Late For CES Challenges....

Good Afternoon...
Oh I am so late posting the new challenge over at CES Challenges.  I totally forgot to do it this morning before I went off shopping.

It's Shell's turn to choose the theme and it is:-

''Anything Goes''

There maybe some confusion as the theme was originally Cute & Cuddly...when it was changed I totally forgot to let all our guest designers know!! I've slapped my wrist and kicked my bum...sorry ladies ;-)

We have a very special sponsor this week...Didge's Doodles who is Shell's daughter & is only 13. 
You can purchase Didge's work HERE
 One lucky winner will receive 3 images as the prize.


I used Didge's Sammy Cat image with Milton papers, card candy, charm, smooth white card and Promarkers....all available in my store.

Pollycraft Challenge #75 - White Christmas....

Good Morning...
Hope you have all had a fabulous weekend, it's been nice for the temperature to be above zero.  The snow is starting to melt here now but I hear we are expecting more towards the end of next week...great!! Lol
I had my stall at the Christmas fayre yesterday but unfortunately there wasn't many people about so I didn't sell a great deal.  The footpaths etc here have been terrible so probably stopped people from having a wander about.  A group of volunteers from the village have started to clear them and would you believe someone actually reported them to the health & safety - where is the community spirit in that??!!

Right onto the challenge and the theme is...

 ''White Christmas''

An all white card apart from colour on the image or a snowy/winter scene.  And you have until the 9th January to enter....we will be back with a new challenge on the 10th.

One lucky winner will receive 10 images from Pollycraft.

Pollycraft

and also a gorgeous Memory Box Tinsel paper pad from Crafty Emma's Store....that's me!! Lol ;-)

***********************************************
