CES Challenges # 29...Die Cut Crazy


Hooray it's the weekend and fingers crossed we get some warm sunny weather...it's been beautiful here all week but I have been cooped up in the office for most of it...I'm itching to get out in the garden and do a bit of tidying up as there are lots of bare twigs and branches that need cutting back...there might not be a lot of crafting done this weekend lol!

I can't believe it's time for another new challenge over at CES Challenges...I think I must have blinked and missed the last week! We had some fab entries for our 'Fav Song' challenge and I found myself singing along to quite a few of them when visiting to leave comments...this weeks theme has been chosen by the lovely Claire and she is challenging us to go DIE-CUT CRAZY...my DT buddies have provided some amazing inspiration this week so be sure to pop over and check out their projects! I've gone a bit die-cut happy on my card...haha!

Hi Donna - oooh...this is sooo nice and rich. I love the design! These colors are so subtle but powerful at the same time because of the way you colored that cute little bear! Just a perfect card with a lovely doily to the side and the scallop border - so beautiful! I just love the way you design your cards as they are always different and stand out so uniquely! Glad you've had wonderful weather; we are tied inside with the rain just pouring down daily! HAHA A good excuse to stay in and craft, though!
