Afternoon fellow blogsters out there - I do hope you are all well but, for those who aren't, I'm sending loads of wishes to get well soon, or at least feel better. Thanks to those of you who have been over to my blog and have left a comment or two recently, I want you to know that I always read them and am so chuffed that you have popped by!
It's my birthday today so I've scheduled this post 'cos I might be out stuffing my face and forgetting the diet for one day ....... as if!!! (edit) Thank you so much for the birthday cards I have received, they are lovely and I am so touched that you remembered. I have finally reached middle-age!!! No laughing out there please!
Anyway I'm posting my latest card for the OSAAT challenge. This fortnight we are looking for cards with a theme of 'Chillaxing'. The maestro is often found pottering in the garden or relaxing as I call it (although he says it's hard work)!
I wasn't making this card for an adult as such so I thought I would use a little bit of the 'chicken' paper from an LOTV pad that I've just bought. You'll also see that the top diamond is a little bit larger than the others but I didn't want to decrease the size of the image and when I pieced everything together I quite liked the shape that had formed! I've taken quite a fancy to those paper-pieced green spotty wellies as well.
7" x 7" White Card blank - Anna Marie Designs
Digi - 'In the Garden' by Kaz Krafts at Stitchy Bears Digi Outlet
Paper Pad - 'Sunny Side Up' from LOTV
Dies - 'Pierced Square Stax' from Die-Namics Dies
Satin Mirri Card - stash
Wellies were paper-pieced with paper from the Tattered Lace Magazine
Rainbow Drops - Crafty Notions
I hope you like my version of chillaxing, we'd love to see your creations on our challenge blog - you can win the following prize ....
A paper pack and 6 images, definitely not to be sneezed at!
If you have time to leave a comment when you are on my blog, I'd love to hear from you. Please take care of yourselves and enjoy this weather while we have it, I'm also thinking about anyone out there looking after poorly other halves, hope they feel better soon.
Big hugs to you.
Love Sue xxx
