A New Challenge at OSAAT and a New Dog

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at One Stitch At A Time. This week our challenge is Bingo!

Please go to our challenge blog here for all the details but it's easy peasy! We would love to see you use three elements on your card, you can use a line across or diagonally, the choice is yours which line you choose but please let us know in your blog post. Regardless of your Bingo line choice you must still use a digital image on your card.  Our sponsor this week is Creative Craft World and you can win our top prize of 3 x Promarkers.

Our rules are pretty simple:

1. You can enter with as many Stitchy Bear images as you wish. But, if you choose to enter with a    non-Stitchy Bear image then you are allowed to enter a maximum of three times.

2. You must link back to our challenge blog on your blog.

3. No back linking, it must be a new project blogged after our challenge goes live.

Here's this week's card:

For my main image I've used Whispering Trees by Gingerloft. This is a lovely image that can be made into a card for a man or a woman depending how you 'gussy' it up. I changed to colour of the trees in my old graphics program to blend with my paper and foil.  The background paper is from the ever growing bits and pieces box and I've inked up the edges. The frame is from Spellbinders Diamond Effects and I've added a couple of Memory Box dies called Pierson Corner. A shabby rose with some distress ink added too. A very quick card to make.

My Bingo Line was across the middle, I used Liquid Pearls, Die Cuts and three layers or more.

The New Dog!

We've adopted a new dog called Tuppence, when I get a new photo I'll post it but she is a little camera shy. I was already to get the blog scheduled but decided to take her and our other rescue dog, Alfie for a walk first. Well, we had to bath Tuppence in the garden because she had rolled in a dead bird and then into dog poo! Yuck!!!! I even bought this dog a pink collar and she did that! At least now I know she is clean and fluffy.

Oh Jennie, I think that Tuppence will settle quickly in your loving care the moment she probably cannot believe how she has landed on her four paws and found herself in such a warm and loving home with you.
Jennie, I absolutely love your beautiful card. The colours are so rich and their depth contrasts so wonderfully with the delicate movement of The Whispering Trees. 'Gussy up' what a brilliant term ......well, I love how you 'gussed' up this card with those beautiful flowers and the awesome die cuts. Love Ingrid xxx ♥

Gorgeous card Jennie! I love the diamond frame, it really makes the image stand out. The die-cts with your rose are very delicate looking and add a softness I think. Thanks for sharing this!
Hugs from your OSAAT DT Sis,
