Something for the Man in Your Life.

It's time for a new challenge on the One Stitch At A Time Challenge Blog.  And our theme this week in Anything Goes For Men.  We would really like to see those gorgeous creations for the man or men in your life.

You have a fabulous chance to win a $10 voucher to spend in the Digital Outlet Store, hop on over to the store right here and check out the fabulous digital creations and check back often as there is usually something new being designed.

For my card this week I chose to use Coosty Creations, A Grandfather Is.  The gorgeous papers print brilliantly and the sentiment is wonderful. I've made my card into a shirt as this always reminded me of my grandfather who passed away when I was quite young.

If you drop by, please leave me a comment, I'd love to know what you think.

Its Sunday and time for a new challenge at OSAAT

It's that time again for a lovely new Challenge here at One Stitch At A Time and it's brilliant!

Our challenge for the next fortnight is Anything Goes with Boxes or Bags.

For the Challenge I chose to use use CraftyGirl's design called 'A Mother Is' and you can find it in Stitchy Bears Digital Outlet right here. What a beautiful sentiment this is and so useful to have for your Mum, Mothers day or just for giving.

The main image was coloured with Promarkers and mounted on a piece of gold mirri card. It has  a Memory Box die cut along side too. The little purple butterfly is from a Dollar Store.The backing paper is by Graphic 45.

Ive used a clear box to keep the card in and decorated with a Creative Expressions Sue Wilson die and also used the backing paper that you can see on the card.  The sentiment die is by one of my favourite card makers, Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace designs dies for Spellbinders. Her cards are so very elegant.
