One Stitch At A Time ...... Anything Goes

Oooh if you got here from the One Stitch At A Time challenge blog ? YAY !! I must of at least made the linkys right LOL.

Just how scary is it taking over a long standing Challenge blog with 650 + followers ... Lots of DT members (20+) and over 15 Creators ???
Answer :: Absolutely TERRIFYING !!!

Today saw my first challenge post at OSAAT , well the challenge post goes live tomorrow but ive just done the post now... Even though Stitchyness is absolutely fantastic, i am sooo worried that i made a boo boo lol.. I hope that i havent because i really don't want to let the team down... They are such a fantastic bunch !!

Anyway on to my challenge card..

For this weeks challenge i got to work with Barbara Jensen.. Ooh i love her images !  I used 'Fluff' again, shes one of my favorites, can you tell ?
Heres my card that i created:

The theme is 'Anything Goes' So a great easy one that all card makers can enter :O)
I coloured the image using my Promarkers and gold pen.. Note : No Stickles !! Now thats a first lol... I backed the image onto a gorgeous dark turquoise card. Then i used the same card to make a large section on the card. But i put some gorgeous backing paper from Craftwork cards inbetween. I had some gold card candy that i thought would look perfect on the card.. So on it there it went.. The sentiment was one i found in my sentiment box. It was again perfect for the card. Which i made for my hubby whos birthday it was on Friday :O)

The challenge is sponsored by The Stamping Boutique

One lucky winner will win 5 digi images of their choice

Creative Craft World 'Button It'

Today's challenge at Creative Craft World sees the start of another fantastic fun challenge.
We would like you all to 'Button It' now we don't mean that in a rude way either ;0)

The challenge is sponsored by the brilliant Robyns Fettish who are offering one lucky winner some digi images.

Heres my DT card
(I have been rescued by big boss lady Lou)  Thanks Lou xx

My card was created all around me wanting to use the hessian on my card.. Oh and my much loved raffia lace, although i actually left it as it was and didnt colour it with my promarkers. I used a mixture of cream and darker brown papers to build my card up. The flowers were punched using my Marianne Designs punches and my MS frond punch as the leaves. I coloured the image using my Promarkers and of course every angel needs Stickles on her wings ;O) Oh and angels need a few gems here and there also :O)

Thanks for visiting me today and thanks to Lou for saving me

I will be back later today with my One Stitch At A Time post for today..

But in the meantime i will share my super super exciting news...
I am taking on a new role at OSAAT ;O) Todays post says  Thankyou to Marjo (DPH or dutchess as she is known ;O) )  Marjo is standing down as DT Coordinator. Thankfully she is still staying on the team, so we wont miss her too much :O)

I just hope that the new DT Coordinator can live up to the great standards that she has set !!!  I think they are going to be busy as a bee checking that everything goes as smoothly as it can for the rest of this very large team !!

So if you dont see me about as often ................ Thats why ;O)
I am the new DT coordinator :O)   :O)   :O)  I am sooo excited . Thankfully Marjo will still be about if i have a Choccy panic moment or make any silly mistakes hehehe.. But i hope that all will go smoothly..I have had so much help already from Marjo.. So a great big Choccy thankyou and hug from me to Marjo.. I am just thankful that my Laptop cable decided to break this week and not next !!!

My DT makes:

This week i was asked to work with Tami from Gingerloft. As soon as i saw furry catterpillar i knew what i wanted to make ! This gorgeous image reminds me of 'The hungry catterpillar'

Heres my library set. Made up of a bookmark, a name plate to go inside your favorite book, a book bag tag and a Library card holder that ties up with ribbon. It has room for name and class inside and the card is kept nice and safe inside the folds..

I really loved making this set. The images were coloured using my Promarkers, of course i used lots of glossy accents too ;O)

I cant wait to see all of your creations this week..
