One Stitch At A Time

Sunday again .... oh my the weeks are flying by !! Its hard to believe we are already nearing the end of May !!. I am amazed how quickly this year is going..
Anyway onto our funtastic challenge this week at One Stitch At A Time.... Its everyones favorite
Anything Goes :O)

For this challenge it was my turn to pick an image for Mandy and myself to use.. I chose 'Fun in the rain' by Donna at Lil Diva stamps.  The image is perfect for the weather we have been having at the minute.... hasn't the weather been strange ? Sunny and warm one day then really cold or raining the next . Very unpredictable..
Back to craftier things. My DT  card for today is this one
I had to make this card flat .... it was one that needed posting. What with the steep increase in postage costs, i kept this in mind when creating.
I then made another card using this image for my emergency card box..
Heres that card.

The sponsor for the challenge is us OSAAT.
Pop to the challenge blog to see the DT  girls creations... Thats the set of images you can win for your prize :O)
Remember to win the full set of images you MUST  use a OSAAT  product on your creation and put a # after your name when you fill in my linky.
If you enter with a none StitchyBear store product you will be entered into a separate draw to win a coupon for $3 to spend in our store :O)
