OSAAT #242 Anything Goes .... With Children

Good afternoon.  I'm here with my card for One Stitch At A Time.  The challenge is Anything Goes .... With Children".  I am using Playful Puppy from Reeces Scrap Pieces, one of the designers at Stitchy Bears Digital Stamp Outlet, and can be found here.  It includes a digi image and four papers.  For my project this time I decided to make a mini pizza box.

My Project

Box made from The Range cardstock
Brown  card - Bazzill Basics
PATP Cherish punch - Martha Stewart 
Lacy Circle die - Spellbinders
Playful Puppy - Reeces Scrap pieces
Card Candi - Craftwork Cards
Doggie button - from stash

The mini pizza box is 10cms square. I lined it with one of the papers in the set and matted the sides of the box with another of the papers. Just right to fill with some of the goodies children seem to love.

We would love you to join us in our challenge this time.  Here is the prize you could win.

Well that's all for today.  Take care.

Christmas Card Club # 15 Let It Snow

Good morning to you all this morning. The sun is shining but it's pretty chilly out there. At least it's not pouring with rain like yesterday; it just didn't stop all day.

Well it's time for our little club to produce another Christmas card and this time it was my choice. I decided on Let It Snow.  If you would like to see what the other girls make then you can find their names and blogs  in my right side bar.  Also if you would like to join our little group and get your Christmas cards made early then please contact me and I will put you in touch with Margaret who keeps us all in check.

This card s not actually due until tomorrow but I have a DT card due then so I am posting this one early.

My Card

5" x 7" base card 
Red card from stash
Sue Wilson -  Snowflake Lattice e/f
Britannia die - Let It Snow
Marianne Creatables for mat - sorry don't know name or number.

This is another very flat card so very good for posting .  I'm trying to make the majority of my cards flat this year, except for my specials for family and close friends.  Got to try and save pennies somehow!

Well I hope everybody is well.  Take care.

One Step At A Time

Good morning to you all.  Well after a few nasty days yesterday was lovely - as it should be since it is supposed to be summer!

I have another encouragement card today. This person loves mountains and since I only have three mountain images this is the last one. I shall now have to check out some digi providers or trawl the internet to find some more.

My Card

6" x 6" base card made from grey pearlescent card stock
from Jelly Bean Crafts
Auvergne die - Sue Wilson French Collection
Mountain stamp - Our Daily Bread Designs "Keep Climbing"
White die cut - Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles
Sentiment - Computer generated
Other papers from stash
Pearls from stash

I actually stamped the image with Memento London Fog onto some cloudy sky paper  and it seems to have worked out pretty well. The sentiment says "One can walk over the highest mountain ... one step at a time" by Barbara Walters.  I think that is something we could all keep in mind.

Well that's all from me for today.  I hope you are all keeping well.

Take care.

Must Use Stars - Get Creative Challenge # 19

Good morning.  Here I am for the third time in a row.  If you have ever waited ages for a bus and then two or three come together you will know why I liken my posts to buses!!  This is my DT post for Get Creative Challenges. Our sponsor is  Cute As A Button  and my fabulous image can be found here

My Card

6" x 6" card - made from cream card stock
Backing papers - all from Father Knows Best  by Lili of The Valley
Star brads - ancient stash
Sentiment - computer generated
Promarkers to colour

I have so many brads which have never seen the light of day for years so I decided to correct that with my last few cards.  Actually I haev removed the legs and attached them with a hot glue gun.

Well that's it from me for now.  Hope you are all okay.

OSAAT DT Challenge 241 Anything Goes ... With Chillaxing

Good afternoon to all my friends and fellow bloggers.  This is my project for One Stitch At A Time "Chillaxing".  Just think of something nice and calming for you, or a relaxing hobby.  I'm sure you get the idea.

I have a few ways of chilling out and one of them is reading.  I'm not a television watcher - except for the cycling and of course it is Tour De France at the moment.  Brilliant!!  I am using papers from Panda Bear Designs  called "A Journey Through Reading" which you can find here.  I decided to make a corner bookmark using the papers and made a topper by shrinking down one of the papers.

My Project

The back of the bookmark using another of the papers - rather busy but it is not really seen.

No ingredient list for this because apart from the papers all I did was add some
pearls from my stash. Oh, I nearly forgot that I used a Fiskars punch along the bottom edge. I think it is called Threading Water. Oh, and a scrap of brown pearlescent card to cut the SB Label 16.  Guess I sould have done an ingredients list after all!! The colours make this a very masculine bookmark I think so I shall probably give it to my brother in law. He has always been an avid reader but since his stroke he gets through books at the speed of light because he is unable to go and work in the garden, or go for a walk etc.

Hope all is well with you.

Take care.

Take care.
