Good afternoon peeps!  Well it is time for another OSAAT challenge and this fortnight the theme is 'Anything Goes with the Colour Orange'!  Now, some of my blog friends can use this colour with total aplomb .. eh Sooooz (aka Olliesmam), but I honestly have difficulty .  This bestest pal of mine has no problem whatsoever with orange and she makes the most gorgeous cards with this colour (here).  As you can see from my creation I went a tad OTT!  I love this little image so much, she's really cute with her bunny rabbit.

Just because the paper I used had some pink in it - well that was it - I went OTT with the pink as well!   All I can say is that if someone should receive this for their birthday - it will certainly stand out - I will enclose a pair of sunglasses of course!

Thank you for coming over to my blog to see my cards, I actually managed to do some commenting yesterday which was really good for me.   I've had a few birthday cards to make recently (for my ex-colleague's twins) and also for the maestro - it was his birthday last Wednesday and he said he would like a new electric screwdriver and battery for his drill so what with my pedi-doodah and his screwdriver thingy we are buzzin'!!!

Thanks again for all your lovely comments, please take care - I'm sending you all big hugs!

I would like to enter my card into the following 10 challenges (sorted this once but the blogger chose to lose it!)

Crafty Sentiments Challenge -  (Digi, Die-Cuts and Gems)
Inspiration Destination Challenge No 1 -


  1. I think this is a fab card Sue with a lovely image. Your orange nd pink takes me back to the sixties when we we wearing those colours plus bright green, all the time! Ah those were the days. Like you, I really struggle with orange and I was thinking of Sue when I was doing mine too! She certainly is the Queen of Orange! Hugs Christine xx

  2. Very brave and so cool to see pinks and oranges together and you cracked it with this one Sue, turned out perfect. Like you and Christine, I dread orange, a colour I don't wear, have in my house (apart from the ones we eat :)) or work with, orange and I are on totally different wave lengths. I take my hat off to you for this creation :) :) big hugs, Jane xxxx

  3. Your card is fab missus! oh my missed Graham's birthday :( please give him lots and lots of belated birthday huggles from us all here!!!!!!!!!!!! I have written the date down now for future reference!!!! queen of the blobs now queen of the orange! you and Christine are so very kind but you know me I soooo lack confidence. But I love this card nothing wrong with it at all your pink and orange go fab together lots of huggles from us all here Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  4. Well done you Sue. I don't like orange all that well either. Nothing worse than having to use a colour that you don't like, but you have one a great job with this card. Hazel xx
