Good afternoon everyone out there in blogland - here's my DT card for OSAAT where our theme this fortnight is Sweet Treats!  Mmmmmm I thought, when I was choosing my image, where am I going with this one - then I saw it and I had a lightbulb moment!  You all know we are both trying to lose weight but our treat is a glass of wine every Saturday and Sunday so this is a very sweet treat for us.   I also love grapes so two treats in one! 
I used 'poiple poils' for the grapes and was really pleased with the result.


7" x 7" Kraft card blank - Anna Marie Designs 
Image - 'Wine Barrel' from My Heart Pieces at Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet
Core'dinations Whitewash Collection card 
Woodgrain Embossing Folder - Textures from Crafters Companion 
Labels Forty Six - Spellbinders Dies 
Tulip Starlight Flourish - Tattered Lace Dies 
Leaves - Christmas Floral Set - Tattered Lace Dies 
Jute Ribbon - WOC 
Pearls - Stash 

I'm actually quite pleased with how my card turned out - that doesn't happen too often for me 'cos I'm totally critical of my work and can usually see something I want to change! 

Now, having seen our latest challenge, I hope you will enter your creations - you can pick any sweet treat whatsoever - there must be loooooads of them about.  We are offering the following digi and paper pack as a prize so, again, you have nothing to lose.

How are the summer holidays going for all of you - hope the younger ones are finding loads to do - they might even be learning to craft. 

That's all from me for now, take good care of yourselves - we have sunshine here at the moment but it's not toooo hot (yay) and if it's the same for you, long may it last. 

Big hugs to you all 

Love  Sue xxx
