Joy to the World

I know I haven't really got time for this BUT.... I had bits left from my CCC earlier in the week and I just wanted to use them up and I saw the red, black, white and yellow challenge at Just Us Girls which fitted perfectly with the alcohol ink splatter pieces I have got. I also found this great sketch at Create 4 Fun - I will definitely be using the splatter technique again (it reminded me of when I used to make a similar pattern with paint and straws when I was teaching eight and nine year olds) -.................  so here is my card.

The image of the angels is another from a Gaby Braun collage sheet and the frame is stamped from Invoke Funky Frames set. The ticket is from Stitchy Bear digi stamps. The coloured papers are a very old set of Christmas Brights from HOTP and the black and white is from an un-named stack pack. The only other bits are a pin and beads and star dust stickles.

I hope you have a good Sunday.

OSATT Challenge 40 - Any season or event

It's Sunday and do you know that in 5 weeks time it will be Boxing Day - WHAT you ask? Can't be! But it is and I have so much to do.

So on to my challenge card this week for the OSAAT -  anything goes for any season or event. I chose this racing car by Hope Jacare, (which can be found at Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps) as my image this week, knowing I have men's birthdays coming up and I still don't have enough cards in my collection to cope with them all.

When making this card I had several challenges in mind particularly the sketch and birthday card from Truly Scrumptious.

The image has been coloured using promarkers and everything edged with faded jeans and/or vintage photo.

and stickles. The papers are from my box of bits and the sentiment is from Lynne at Sentiments 4 You. The little hinges are Sissix die cuts and I used the TH on the edge scallops die.

A fairly simple card - but one that will be great for several birthdays coming up.

Other challenges to have fun with -
Creative Belli - Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.
Stampavie - Monochrome
Something completely different - Numbers

Enjoy the rest of the day and the week ahead.
