Anything Goes

Time for a new challenge at One Stitch At A Time and our theme this week is everyone's favourite challenge of 'Anything Goes'.  Our rules are very simple and can easily be found on the challenge blog. The winner using a Stitchy Bear image is the May 7 image pack.

It was my teamie, Sue's turn to select the image for this week and she chose In The Harbour by Delicious Doodles and you can find it here.  It's the perfect image for all occasions and for the men in your life and I chose to use it for a retirement card.

I've used a lovely background paper from the Beach Cottage collection from Pink Petticoat. The image was coloured with Promarkers and finished off with a couple of card mats. The sweet buttons are froma large pot of buttons I've collected over the years. The blue heart button I bought in the US many years ago and the pop up every now and again/

I'd like to enter the following:-

This is just gorgeous Jennie, a scene I am so used to seeing when back in the UK and go to Seahouses to visit my Mum, the old boats in the harbour when the tide is out - yep I can smell it from here . Big hugs Jane xxxx
