Well hello there peeps - I bet you are thinking "oh she's still here then" - I have been making a few cards but have neither posted them nor have I been commenting on my friends/followers blogs. I have been commenting on my DT work however, but if someone had said "don't worry about it" I would have quite happily isolated myself even more. I do feel guilty that I have 'ignored' my friends in blogland but this is something that builds up and happens to me every now and again and I want to hibernate. 'Nuff of that!
This week, the One Stitch at a Time challenge is back after the summer holidays (I'm pleased because I have had to get me bum in gear to get this card posted!!). There are a few simple changes which you will be able to read about here on the site! This is an 'Anything Goes' challenge but with the addition that you must use a die or dies on your project - no problem for the majority of my blog friends - eh girls/guys!!! One of the changes is that our challenges are now fortnightly so I do hope you enter this one and use your favourite dies! The prize will be 5 of the images that the DT have used for Challenge No 219 - you can see them on the OSAAT site (here) where all the cards made by my teamies are posted.
I cut my card blank out using the Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Circle die - I had to pop it through a few times because it had to be doubled/folded - if you see what I mean - me brain's still a on strike just a tad!
I put a few daisies on the lower half to make the 'stop' for the easel and added a couple of stars - just 'cos I like them.The sentiment was a freebie I found on t'internet but I retyped it in dark blue then cut it out with one of my pierced dies.

I think I have waffled on enough and I don't want to bore you any further - lol!! I can see Sue J (Olliesmam) going glazed already! I would love to see your cards - or anything else you want to make - on the OSAAT challenge. You have two weeks to get your favourite dies and image out before it closes - plenty of time (says she who takes forever)!!!
Thank you so much for popping over to check my card out - I really appreciate the fact that you are there for me, especially when I know that there are plenty of people a lot worse off than me.
Take care of yourselves - lots of big hugs to you all.
