Good afternoon friends and blogsters - first of all I would like to welcome my new follower Anet - I hope you enjoy checking out my blog, I do tend to waffle so be warned!   Today I have a card for the OSAAT DT and our theme this fortnight is Children.

I apologise for the colour of the apple, it's quite a luscious red on the card but it turned out this colour when the pic was taken.  Not sure whether it was the new glaze I used on it or just the light of the day.  I made the pencils from a piece of card, I rolled it into a tube and made a paper 'bead' and pushed it into the end then I coloured the pointy bit with Flexmarkers.


7" x 7" White card blank - Anna Marie Designs
Digi - 'Bak 2 Skool' by IkeSart at Stitchy Bears Digi Outlet
Papers - DCWV Stack No 6 (12" x 12" pad)
Black card from stash
'Stitched Squares' dies - Lil'inkers Dies
'Scalloped Buttons' die - Memory Box Dies
'Fishtail Flags Stax' die - Die-namics Dies
Star Paperclip - present from my blog pal Jenny Lawrence (Cardsarus)

I do hope you can enter our challenge, I know the children are on holiday now and that you will be busier than ever, but it would be nice to see your creations!!!  We have a great prize this month of digis and papers and it's well worth trying for.

That's it for now, a little short I know but I am so busy at the moment I just don't know where the time goes - even the maestro is having a mumble that I'm stuck in my craft room.  He's got sooo bored that apart from watching his F1 and MotoGP (yawwwwwwn) - I know someone out there who is now spitting at me 'cos they love MotoGP!! - he's ordered bricks and stuff and is building a new wall, I'm trying to work out whether he's keeping me in or out ...mmmmm!  I guess I'll find out when he starts bricking up the door to my craft room with me on the outside!!!

Lots of big hugs to you all and I hope you are keeping well.  Please take care.

Love   Sue xxx

    oh my word those pencils are pure genius.
    I thought they were real pencils.
    Love your super card, and beautiful coloring as usual.
    Don't you just hate it when the camera lies on colours.
    I too get moaned at for being in the craft room too much.
    By my daughter, and my husband, especially has he has his hobbies.
    I can remember quite a few years ago when he was always on his computer, but I never once complained.
    So I get a bit annoyed when they both gang up on me, about it, and lash out with my tongue.
    oooooooooooooooaaaaaa! I have just had visions of a big frog with his tongue coming out now. LOL.
    Love and big hugs form my house to yours.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
