CES Challenges DT Card..............Party, Party, Party!!!!

Hello peeps how are you all? This is a scheduled post I'm hoping to still be in bed a kip.
Sorry for not getting to any blogs last night I went out into the hobbit & didnt realise the decking was so icy...........yep bang straight down I went... Craig always knows when I've really hurt myself cus I laugh......LOADS lol....yeah the hospital thought it weird when I broke my ankle a few years ago. Anyway spent an hour soaking in bath then in bed with hot water bottle lol. Scheduled this about 1 o'Clock this morning.
Right anyway its our last challenge of the year over at CES Challenges, so this new challenge will last til after the new year to give the DT girlies a break over the hols. So as its that time of year where you know you are gonna have a least 1 party to attend the theme for this challenge is.....
For my card I did the obvious party of the year...........ta daaaaaaaaaaa

Happy New Year...........we all love new years marks the end to a year whether it be good or bad & we welcome in the new year with hopes & dreams for the year ahead.............

I used 6x6 On The Edge 'Petal Point' card blank & lay it against the back & drew around the petal point & cut it out so both edges front & back were the same.

The papers are 'All Prima' by Prima & have all been edged with vintage photo & matted onto light beige card.

The fabulous image is of course from Mo Manning 'Happy New Year Baby Bella & Bronte' I had to choose this as this will be for Ben & Megan & we should be welcoming a baby into our excited lol!!!
The card is made for Mo's challenge as they want to see fabric & I've got the netting stuff & lace.

Papers, 6x6 Card & Flowers are all from Crafty Emma's Store.

This is '1st Snow' by a new artist called Zindy Nielson available only at Crafts & Me Store soon.

I made the card base from suede feel A4 card & then matted paper onto kraft card, the paper I splodged around the edges with white paint.....cant remember what the paper is called sorry peeps!

The snowflake I heat embossed with white & silver powder.. I added Jute Ribbon with some seam binding & lace from my stash. Added a snowflake charm to the bow from my stash.
All paper flowers are from WOC.

Hello my lovelies how are you all? Are you all organised & ready for santie come doon your chimneys lol.
Well I'm behind on everything including my commenting as my fabulous (in sarcastic tone) internet keeps letting me down. I've got another flat & basic card for crimbo posties & again without any designer papers, I was on a roll & did 3 a few days ago lol......................................

Isn't he a cutie....awwwww....his name my dear friends is 'Floppy' but I like to call him 'Floppsy' lol he is of course from the fabulous Make It Crafty Store & is a digi image.

The lovely snowflake I made with my Whimsy die & then heat embossed with gold & stuck a button from my stash in the middle....

The cute image was coloured in Copics but I did colour him about a montha go so really have no ideas what colours I used........his bobbly thing on his hat & his belt buckle I covered with Tarnished Brass Stickles. I Used the same red card to mat on & cut the corners with my punch & then added this to some card cut out using my favourite die.........which I heat embossed with white & silver powder.

The card base is scalloped 6x6 card blank & I used Pillar Box Red A4 Card for matting. The one on the front was embossed with a snowflake folder. The sentiment I cant remember where the stamp was from but I stamped with versa & heat embossed with gold.
Well thats it from me peeps as I made this card a few days ago I have no idea if it will fit any challenges so will go have a peeksie while I'm doing my rounds to come see you all.

Also I would like to say a huge welcome to my lovely new followers & a huge thank you to them (waving madly........helllooooooo)

Thank you so much for popping by really am thankful for all your lovely comments my lovelies.

I coloured her in red to make it look like a little santy outfit lol........I've still to add a sentiment but I cant decide which one & who its going to lol. I've used no designer papers on this at all.

Kept everything white & glittery to reflect winter & snow but with a touch of red to represent father christmas lol.
