Playing Catch-Up

It's been a busy few weeks since my last post so here's my catch-up post to get me back on track.

The present challenge at OAAT is Anything goes with Halloween Colours and for my card I chose 'Catular by Ikes Art.  You can find this brilliant image here in the Stitchy Bear's Digital Outlet Store.



I'm sending this card to my granddaughters for Halloween as they own two lovely cats.

I cut a couple of square from Creative Expressions - Sue Wilson's Pierced Squares to mount my image on. The ribbon I found in a Dollar Tree store in St. Pete's Beach in Florida where I had been staying with a great bunch of friends.  The exchange rate was pretty good so a few spools of ribbon jumped in my basket. The sentiments are self generated. I love the purple and orange colours together at anytime of the year.



My second card was made for the recent Breast Awareness Week which took place when I was in the US.


The sentiment I found on the internet and those of you who know me understand that I love the perfect words for a card.  This card could be sent to anyone who is feeling alone in their treatment.

The lovely tulips image is called Whisper of Tulips by Kaz Kraftz and perfect for giving.

This Saturday we had afternoon tea on a Thames barge moored at Hythe Quay in Maldon, Essex.  We do enjoy ourselves and it was lovely catching up friends we haven't seen for a while.  Off out for another afternoon tea with family this week and looking forward to the first week of November when it's afternoon tea yet again at my niece's house celebrating the finish of her new extension. How did I ever find time to go to work????

Jennie, love both cards. I am sure your granddaughter liked her card for Halloween. The little title/sentiment was cute. :D And I absolutely love the tulip card. :D So delicate and elegant.
Hugs your DT sister from OSAAT
