it's Sunday and time for a new challenge at OSAAT

It's Sunday and time for a lovely new challenge at One stitch at a Time (OSAAT).  This week our theme is 'Anything Goes With Birthdays'. This will get the creative mojo firing on all cylinders!

For my card I chose the Floppy Latte image Floral Frame 8 and you can find it here in the Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet. I love sunflowers and I think this image is suitable for a lady or a man, you could colour this in reds and pinks and oranges as the colour spectrum for sunflowers is ever changing. I love the autumn colours that I've used. Left fairly plain as I have it will be suitable for all relatives as well as good friends.

I've coloured the image with Promarkers and reached for a simple greeting stamped with brown ink and embossed with a clear powder, the edges have been highlighted with a copper coloured ink too. The perfect colour cord given to me by my lovely friend Marilyn.

Please join in with out challenge as for the next fortnight our prize will be four digi images and a gorgeous paper pack too.

Pop over to our challenge blog, the rules are very simple

A card for a Lovely Friend

A member of our Red Hat chapter recently has a birthday, so i reached for the Graphic 45 paper pad called Bird Song. All of Graphic 45 papers are gorgeous and I've been itching to use this one as it's so colourful.  The sentiment is from Paulette at Create with TLC and die cut with a Sue Wilson set of dies.

Anything goes with 'Love"

Next weekend it will be Valentine's Day and love, red roses and choccies will be given to wives, girlfriends and lovers and Mums too. For our theme this week at One Stitch At A Time  it is Anything Goes With Love.  It doesn't have to be a Valentine, anything that shows how much you love will be perfect. Please check out our simple three rules for the challenge.

Our prize pack this week will be this super set of images,

Aren't they special!

For my card this week I chose "Pansies' by CraftyGirl Creations and you can find it here.  What a delight to colour and use.

Theres about four shades of purple and yellow Promarkers in the flowers but with the low winter light levels it was difficult to capture. Pansies are so pretty and welcoming after winter and I love all the colours that are grown now.  Before I used it I checked out the Language of Flowers to see if there was an appropriate sentiment to go with this gorgeous image. Happily, it was perfect!
