CES Challenges DT Card - Colouring On Kraft

Hello my lovelies how are you all? I'm super duper late as I've had a stotting migraine since yesterday afternoon & I had Payton-Lea last night as well lol.........luckily I have the most fabulous hubster who likes to help when he can. Anyway I will get on with my post.
Of course its Saturday wooooo hooooooo it also means a new challenge over on CES Challenges & this week our fabbylicious Donna has chosen a fab theme of............
Colouring On Kraft....
I love colouring on Kraft & dont do it often as I would like so even tho I am late I loved this theme.
I have used another fabulous image from D'Arcy's these images, love how different they are.

Papers are the gorgeous Prima 'Printery' which I got from Crafty Emma's last year.
The small postcard is from a LOTV Grunge Postcard stamp, which I always forget I have.

I've also used a 6x6 Pointed Petal card blank & paper flowers & blooms also from Crafty Emma's Store.
Pearl, lace & twill ribbon are from my stash.

The image is Number-002 & I printed her onto smooth Kraft card & coloured her in with Prisma Pencils.
Originally I was going for a charcoal type of look but then decided instead to add more white so not sure what sort of look you would call this.........I was playing lol.
I used 3 pencils for this image, black, warm grey & white & it was quite quick to do. Altho I do need more practice lol.

Well thats it from me please pop on over to see my fabulous teamies Krafty Kreations........utterly stunning!!

Will be round shortly to catch up with you all.
Hope all you mums in the UK get a super duper Mammy's Day tomorrow & hope you get spoilt rotten but most importantly hope you get sooooooo many hugs & cuddles from your kiddies......worth more than ANY present they are!!
Tatty bye & thank you from my heart for stopping by, loves ya xoxox

My Crafty Heart DT Card............Sarah Kay

Good evening my lovelies, how has the weather been where you are? Its been sooooooo gorgeous here I've had 2 lines of bedding out & washed all the winter coats & all the dog washer is resting now lol.
I'm here with my DT card for My Crafty Heart  store & found a very old stamp that I had not inked up for soooooooooo long so thought I would make my step-mum a Mothers Day card from Natalie & Jake.
Papers are the totally gorgeous My Minds Eye 'Be Happy'........They have been edged with Sahara Sand & matted onto pink card.

Lace & organza ribbon is from my stash. Pearl hearts from a friend. Butterflies are with 2 different sized punched & I added small gems to the body.

Even tho she's my step-mum the kids have always called her nan. I stamped 'Nan' onto card then cut it out & attached this beautiful frame around it......the frame is Melissa Frances 'Applique Frames' which really are so pretty & was saving them for a special card.

The gorgeous image is called 'Spring Blossom' & I cant remember where I got it from but I've had a look & you can get her here. I've coloured her with Copics & the sky I did with chalks & I added flower soft under her feet. Forgot I had this stuff lol. I've also added 'Platinum' stickles to her flower centres.

I added a Melissa Frances 'Resin Corner' which are again so pretty. I also used my Memory Box die 'Madera Corner' & added a Resin Flower to the corner of it, it looked a bit orangey after I took the piccies so I changed it for a pinkier

I want to also show you this.............

*New* Mabel Lucie Attwell stamp - A little Kiss
Its a Mabel Lucie Attwell stamp called 'A Little Kiss' & you can find this one & other stamps like this cutie over at My Crafty Heart, go check out all the new goodies they are fabulous.

Bunny Zoe's Challenge - Shabby Chic

Hi my lovelies.....

Hi all my lovelies how are you all? I've kinda been MIA over the weekend its been hectic to say the least lol. We've had Natalie, Payton & the 2 puppies to look after. Bitsy or 'Itsy Bitsy' as I've been calling her is def settling in bless her & I'm not quite sure where she stores it but boy can that lassy pee for England.......too much info maybe lol. Honestly I'm up & down & few minutes..........she needs a cork I tell ya lol. They are soooooooo adorable tho & they are getting along brilliantly you would think they were brother & sister lol.
We did get a wee break on sunday afternoon tho cus Ben & Megan invited us over for tea which was fabulous it really was. Normally my house is the one where everyone comes for food......friends, the kids friends............when Jake first went middle school 5 of his friends(2 of which were girls, 1 his girlfriend lol) used to come at weekends for him but jake likes his bed so when they came he was usually just having his toast so they would all came in & I would then make them all toast lol.........dont think I would have the energy now lol.1 of my friends always said I should have a sign saying 'Open House' on it 'All are welcome' lol. So it made a nice change for someone cook for us & us not have to do dishes lol.
Anyway I'm so sorry I've not been round over the weekend & I promise to catch up today at some point. I'm at the docs as soon as I've took Jake school.........blurrrrrrrrrrrrr......on an upside Natalie is a lot better & she managed lovely when we took her over Bens yesterday, its the first time she's been out for the last couple of weeks bless her. She still has a bit of a cough but she is so much better now. Thank you to everyone for their get well wishes & hugs...........she does so love her hugs does our Natty.
Well better go but will be round to see you all today, should also have a card to share as well with you, fngers crossed lol.
