Floral Fancies at OSAAT

Hello once again you lovely bloggers. It's that time of week again - yep that's right, it's OSAAT time!! Another week has just flown by and we are now nearly at the end of the month....I just don't know what Father Time is up to - maybe he gets excited about Christmas too, who knows. Anyway, like I said it's OSAAT time so on with my project. Our theme this week is "Flowers" so we want to see flowers on your project whatever it is you make. Now these can be handmade flowers, flowers on a backing paper, flowers on your stamp, flowers attached to your project  - you name it as long as it's got flowers there somewhere you can enter it to this weeks challenge.
I have been paired up with Lil Diva Stamps this week and she's gonna kill me I know as I've forgotten what this cutie is called. Anyway I've made a wall dangly with her. She's been coloured in with my watercolour pencils, some fluffy puffy stuff on the heart on her dress and a few beads stuck onto the flower centre that is in the pot. I had some paper that I had printed off ages ago in just the right colours so I used that as the backing and the flowers are from my stash and I used the same technique for the brad in the centre of the top flower as I did the flower in the pot.

You can get this digi and other fab digis from the store right here and you can pay in all sorts of different currency too not just US dollars, so please pop by and have a wander around as there is a very wide selection of styles and papers too.
Okay, that's me done here for another week and I'll see you as I pop round your entries.
Take care

It's another Wednesday and I didn't get time to pop around to anyones blogs last week, well here's hoping I will this week now my youngest is back at school and peace and quiet reigns supreme once again.

Im not even gonna bother telling you anything that is there or anywhere - I'm just gonna let you have a good old root around.

Thank you, thank you and once again - Thank you

Blimey the weeks are just zooming past now aren't they!? I'm almost missing the dull, gloomy weather coz I have more time to craft then hehehe. Anyway it's OSAAT time and I had the chance to work with our newest member of the team Sassy - AKA Robyns Fetish. With the theme being "Thank You" (did you get that from the title hehehe) I chose the oh so cute and sweet "A Little Birdie Told Me".

At the moment it is just an ATC, but I think I will use it on a card as a topper at some point. I just ran out of time. I think I have my finger in a little too many pies at the moment, that and chatting away to all my cyber buddies, trying to get the garden sorted oh man when is the 48 hour day gonna come into force - not that I want anyone to have to work longer hours but we'd all have time for everything else then from homework to just spending time with the family - oh and crafting too, thats the most important thing ain't it now!!
Okay well I'm going to love you and leave you and I hope to see some of you in our challenge this week. Thanks to all of you that made it another fabulous week at OSAAT by entering your lovely projects for us all to see.
Remember the store is open 24 hours a day, so if you ever wake up at silly o'clock in the morning and can't sleep - just pop over to Stitchy Bear Stamps and have a little browse...I always sleep better when I've had a good old spend up...hahaha!

Kisses for you.....

Good afternoon everybody. Hope you are all well and basking in this lovely sun we are having at the moment. Anyway this morning I finally got two cards done, whose elements have been sitting here on my table for at least the last couple of weeks.
This is from my buddy Stitchy yet again and yes, it's one of Barbara Jensens posers that she has turned into line art for her. Now then I have done basically the same card each time but in different colourways and a slightly different arrangement too.

The little sentiment and lipstick kiss are from Royal and Langnickel Clear choice "Special Occasions" mini stamp pack.
Well that's it from me at the moment. Hopefully I'll get a little more done tonight as hubby is most probably going out to play footy with his mates so he'll be out of my hair for the night. Oh and don't forget where you can buy this fab digi stamp....yep, that's the one and the only -  Stitchy Bear Stamps.
Enjoy the rest of your day and have a good weekend

Hehehehe the big reveal

Two things - one I've gone and started another blog Sams Saucy Shack and the only thing you will find on there is my creations made from linework by Stitchy of the lovely and talented Barbara Jensen. They will be coming on here too but I'll save the close up pics for the Saucy Shack. Now then these two cards are basically finished barring a sentiment but I figured as they will be going into my store soon, I'll leave them as is and then they can be for whatever the person who buys them wants them for - I'll do that when they tell me what they require hehehe.
Anyway this is Stitchys brand new stamp, " Dark Angel" which you can buy from the store.

Hope you like these cards.
Take care now

WOYWW quicky

Arghhhh! Where does the time go? It's Wednesday already and you will see most of the same stuff on my table as what was there last week! There are 2 new additions tough and they are the upside down ones. They will be revealed a little later along with something else......

Anyway I'm hoping to get Stitchys Attitude made up later on as well, but this is now and this is or was my desk earlier today. I've even made some more mess since then as I've completed the 2 upside down beauties and had to root around everywhere to find stuff, (I mean in my drawers on the table as that got all my little odds and ends in).
Oh just so you all know - the tall grey thing is my OTT-LITE folding portable lamp...not that it goes anywhere but hey ho it helps me craft in the evenings.
Right I'm off to take my dogs for a walk as my daughter is sitting here pouting coz she wants to go. Do they not realise crafting is a matter of life or death??!!
Anyway, I'll be back later with my reveals so til then ta-ra. Oh and I hope you'll join us at WOYWW aka the stamping ground.

Torn, distressed or shabby

No, it's not how I feel after having my eldest two girls here since last Sunday, but our new challenge over at OSAAT. We'd like you to create anything at all that is torn, distressed or shabby in any way. It can be all 3 or just one - the choice is yours.
I had the pleasure of working with Claire of Hope Jacare Doodles this week and I used this fab image called "Skate". Definitely one for the boys.

I'd love to know what you guys think about it, and there are plenty more fabby digis from Claire and all the other talented Creators in the store here.
Also while you are about in blogland, please go and check out the other members of the DT  fabulous creations.
Take care now

WOYWW 7th April

It's Wednesday again and I didn't forget this week lol :) . And true to form my workspace is buried under everything. I do have a few things on the go, mainly from my mate Stitchy. You can buy her digis and others too from the store and now we have multi currency so you don't have to pay in US dollars.

As you can see, I'm only brave enough for one picture this week as the rest is in even worse a state than this little bit. I will be clearing a space in a while so I can make a few bits.

Take care and try not to get buried on my table too. Hope to see you there.

It's Sunday - It's OSAAT time!!!!

A big thanks to all that took part in last weeks Egg hunt over at OSAAT, with the prize that was up for grabs we thought there may have been more entries but I guess you were all busy stashing eggs yourselves from the kids.
Anyway another week, another challenge and this week we have our fab regular sponsor Sew Many Challenges.
The theme this week is "Anything Goes" and I used one of Angelas fabulous Friday freebies - a lovely butterfly.

Did you guess thats what it was from yesterdays sneak peek.
I still haven't got anything else made as my hubby decided he would join Facebook yesterday, so I was setting up an email account for him and then I set the facebook thing up for him too. Then I had to read all instructions for him until he got the hang of it as he's dyslexic - luckily he is very quick to pick things up, but he still roped me into Mafia Wars so he had a buddy, so no crafting done for me last night in the end.
Anyway I hope you like my little offering, I think it's going to get turned into a picture for my daughters room eventually as I don't like it much as a card. I hope you'll pop round to all the other fab DT and leave them some love as I think they all do a fab job in spite of my best efforts lol.
Take care

Take care all
