Sunday 30 March 2014


Good morning everyone out there in blogland - today the weather here is bloomin' lovely!   The sun is shining brightly but there is a slight chill in the air - just as I like it.  I would be totally happy with this weather all year round, not too hot but very sunny!

Here is my card for the OSAAT challenge this week, I was given this digi and although I could have made an Easter card I spied a little drinkie in his hand and thought I could turn this into a Party Invite!

Challenge 206 is an 'Anything Goes' challenge this week and if you use an image from the Stitchy Bear Outlet you can win 7 images used by the DT.  Don't forget to check out the One Stitch at a Time blog (here), you can see all the cards that were made for this challenge.  I do hope you get some inspiration and join in.
As mentioned earlier,  I saw this as a Fancy Dress party invite and I thought of pink rabbits (loads of 'em on Planet Susie!).  I coloured him in with Flexmarkers and then chose the papers afterwards - something I rarely do nowadays 'cos it takes me ages to find the right combination.  This is a pad I bought some time ago and I really took a fancy to it, I could see it on my cupboard shelf and realised I had all the colours I needed - another one of me light bulb moments ladies!  There are some snippets (yay) of pink card in there as well, both for the wording and also the border.

Cotton wool ball for tail - Make-up bag !!!!!

The cotton wool ball was in the bottom of my make-up bag - slightly mucky but I delved into the middle where it was clean!  I used a little Cosmic Shimmer glue, pulled the cotton wool fibres apart and plopped them onto the tail - voila!!!  There were some sticky out bits so I chopped them off with me scissors!

I hope you like this one, a tad bright maybe - but I feel it is right for an invitation to a Fancy Dress Party - not that I have ever been to one!

Thank you for the comments on yesterday's card - I am glad I have made some of you smile - regarding the bicycle seat and the G string, well me eyes are still watering at the thought.  Sue J said she was looking for some pliers to help me out, so not only are they watering they are now out on stalks!

Thank you for stopping by today, please try and enter the Challenge 'cos I love seeing your entries on there.  Enjoy the rest of your day and I will see you later.

Big hugs to you all - still unable to follow any new peeps but am still trying.

  27. Oh my gosh! This card made me snort. I think I could go to a fancy dress party like this! It doesn't appear that hose and heels are required. Great card and thanks for the smiles on the snippet playground!

  28. Hee hee! Love you Fancy Dress Invite. Very creative of you. Hugs, Sarn xxx

  29. Hysterical! You win the prize for funniest card on the playground, Suep! (Like I have any say in the matter!) It really made me snigger. That's the only fancy dress you'll find in my closet, as well! I appreciate that you followed me and will be introducing you tomorrow. This week has been all about posts having to do with the follow button and bombarding blogger with messages so they fix the button. Now ladies are telling me it is fixed, however, lots of others are now telling me their photos are disappearing! Aack!!

    Anywiddle, I have enjoyed catching up with you! I loved the photo of you hooligans and I just about had the ol' pacemaker go off laughing about G-strings and bikes. I have that same problem!! And if it's just the same to you, I'll be actually calling you Soup in my comments. Suep looks like su-ehp which sounds like something a farmer would say to call the animals in from the field. Okay, Soup? Say, if not. Hugs, Darnell

  30. Popped over from Darnell's. Got an immediate chuckling binge from the image on your card. I want one of these for my jammies. Hope the house doesn't catch fire I have to run out wearing them. (Blush) Great sense of humor and a card to match.

  31. I am a new follower and this is the perfect card to see as a new follower! LOVE it. I popped over from Darnell's blog. Looking forward to browsing your site more.

  32. Fabulous card. Only a real man can wear pink. ;) Very creative in getting the cotton tail on there Maggie, OSAAT DT Teamie

  33. great card fun image!
