DT card for OSAAT 'collab Job/career' challenge 73

OMG is it Sunday again already?!!!   Well it must be time for another OSAAT challenge then!  I am having a lovely time here in Bude Cornwall, England, on  holiday, but that is a far cry from this weeks theme at OSAAT which is 'Job/career'! 

This weeks sponsor is the Sitchy bear store themselves with the collab for August.
Some fabulous images in there, my trucker being one of them!!!

The papers for this card are from K & company Roam Paper pack.  I have used Xcut die cut circles to cut them out!

The image is from stitchy called 'truckin'  and has also been cut out with the Xcut die circles and has then been coloured with pro markers. I have used liquid pearls around the outside, and inked around the edge.

The Keep on trucking roundie sentiment is again part of the collab and from stitchy, I have punched it out and layered it onto a nellie snellen die cut.

Thank you for taking the time to  check out my blog, especially in these busy holiday times.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges Anything goes Going around in circles Anything goes Circles

Thursday 21 July 2011


Well good morning, I must apologise for my absense the last few days an explain that there will be fewer post from me for the next 5 weeks as I will be away on my summer break with my family.  I have been finishing all my DT projects this last week and there are plenty of them let me tell you!  And I will be posting them from home, but I have very little craft stuff at my home and very little space to take any home so I won't be making anythingnew over the next 5 weeks!  Here is possibly my last card , although I might have time to post one tomorrow before I leave? I will have to see whatI can get done today!

I have used K&K Roam DP's for the backing paper on this card and a Tim Holtz Clock die cut.

The image are from the new Steampunk collection at Make it crafty digi's.  This one is called Clockworks house.

This one is called Anabelle, They have both been coloured with pro markers and attatched with foam pads.

DT card for OSAAT 'Flowers' challenge

Another Sunday already ! Challenge time at OSAAT again :o) and this week the challenge is 'Flowers'.

Our sponsor this week is

Don't forget the July collab is still available for free when you spend £10 or more in the Stichty bear store

And onto my cards, as I have been lucky enough to make 2 projects this week :o)

I have used some old freebie papers from a magazine for the backing papers on this card and layered them with pink and yellow.

The digi stamp is called 'Birthday Lucy ' by Recce's scrap pieces.  I have cut her out witha nesties scalloped circle and coloured her with pro markers. I have then used different small flower pucnhes to creat the frame around the edge and used gems in the centres of the flowers.

The sentiment is from a Lili of the valley set and has been punched out and inked with yellow and pink, then more flower and leaf punches have been used to create the embellie at the top.

Close up of the punched flowers.

I will be entering this card intothe following challenges

And onto my second card

I have used backing papers from Kate Knight that were free with a magazine about a year ago! I have cut the image out with a nesties lace square then wrapped ribbon around the edge.

Side view

I have printed the image 4 times , coloured it with pro markers then decoupaged it up.  I have used flower soft for the very tiny flowers at the top of the picture.
The sentiment is from a fizzy moon set of stamps and has been punched out and I have again used small flower punches to make a frame around it, with gems at their centres.

I hope you like my projects.

Unfortunately that means I haven't had much time to make other things, so I will be showing you the notepads intermitently over the next month to try and fill in any gaps I might have as I am also going away for just over a month and will not be able to take most of my crafting stash :o(  Boo hoo!

So here is another notepad for today's post

Backing papers were freebies from a magazine, the notepad and pen are from the Range.
