Hi there fellow bloggers - welcome to my little planet!!  Thank you so much for stopping by and checking me out - so to speak!!!   

I have a couple of cards ready to show this week because they are DT cards.  This card is my first as a DT member for One Stitch at a Time and, if you think about it, it certainly typifies me as Planet Susie!!! Please check out the Challenge site and also the cards made by my teamies - they are bloomin' creative.

This challenge (No 172) has a theme "Use a Digi" and if you use an image from StitchyBear Digi Outlet via the blog  ( - the prize is $20 worth of digi images.  You can still win $3 worth of images if you use a digi from another company.  Don't forget these are weekly challenges.

The starship is the main image and there were some lovely background papers to choose from but I loved the look of planet earth!

You know how much I love my floral bits and I sooo wanted to have some space flowers on here so I used some stars and some snowflake dies plus some great foliage dies to make up these wacky flowers.    I do have a friend who loves anything Startrek so this would suit her down to the ground!!!  I would add a birthday sentiment to this one if I decide to send it to her though - lol!

I cut out the starship and then mounted it onto my background using a little spring that I made from some jewellery wire.  It really does bounce around on the front of my card! Yay.

I used purples, blues, greys and silver on this card - mainly because I wanted to have some nice little relatives posing on the front - bless - and they needed to blend into my background - ooops now I'm chuckling at myself 'cos I've gorn orf on one.

I hope you like my unusual card, I must admit I enjoyed making this one 'cos it tweaked me brain!  Give a little wave to my relations on the front won't you!

Thank you for any comments you may leave, can I ask again that you visit the One Stitch at a Time Challenge to have a look - and please enter the challenge!!!  Also I would love you to check out my teamies' blogs with their DT cards.  They are so lovely.

Loads of big hugs to you 'cos I have been waffling just a tad - please keep well and if you are feeling under the weather, I hope you get better soon.
