CES Challenge 57...Seeing Red


Hoorah it's Saturday and I've decided I'm having a very lazy day! We had a work do on Thursday night which was aboard a boat on the Thames...it was very choppy and very cold and I have to be honest this ole' landlubber was jolly pleased to be back on dry land! It was also a very late night and I was shattered yesterday hence the lazy day today!

Saturday's mean a fab new challenge at CES Challenges and the lovely Jenny has chosen this week’s theme which is SEEING RED...Yup, you must use RED as the main colour on your card...perfick colour for Crimbo cards me thinks!

The winner of this week’s challenge will win a brilliant £10 gift certificate to spend in Crafty Emma’s Store…Emma has a huge selection of lush crafting goodies to choose from and I can guarantee you will be spoilt for choice and spend much more than a tenner!
