A Lovely Time At Ally Pally

Twice a year my sis-in-laws and I toddle off to the Stamping and Scrapbooking show at Ally Pally (Alexandra Palace). This Sunday's event was fab and we picked up so many bargains especially card that I didn't need, along with lots of other goodies that I've got plenty of but, I think every crafter will know what I mean.

Back to this week's challenge at OSAAT. Our theme this week is 'Anything Goes With Leaves.

This is such a lovely sentiment called Mothers Garden by Floppy Latte Designs and you can find it right here.

I've coloured the flowers and leaves with Copics and created some flowers with a Memory Box Aster die and the leaves are from Spellbinders.

Please come and visit our blog, One Stitch At A Time and join in with the fun, there's a lovely prize for the winner this week of a collection of beautiful digital images.  Leave the design team some love, it's free!

There's a chill in the air!

There's a definite chill in the air and it looks like our lovely summer is coming to an end. For me it's be great, the first summer in many years that I have not had to work in a over warm office. It's been great that there hasn't been any of those too hot days where you just want to sit and do nothing.

It's that Sunday when we have a lovely new challenge on the One Stitch At A Time (OSAAT) blog. Our theme this week is Anything Goes With Gratitude. A lovely way of saying thank you to someone who has encouraged you, helped you or just been there for you.

For my card this week I chose to use Crafty Girl Creations Rose that can find right here.  This is such a lovely 'go to' image that can be used on so many occasions.

I've coloured the image with Promarkers and added a little Wink of Stellar to the flower itself. The background paper is from the First Editions Rose Garden pad.  The heart punch by Paper Shapers I've had for years and it doesn't appear enough on my cards, it's so sweet and just enough with the other hearts in the background. A self-generated sentiment to finish.

Please pop over to the challenge blog here and take part, there's a fab prize for the winner.
