Good afternoon everyone - well here I am with my next card for the OSAAT Challenge where our theme is Anything Goes for a Male.   I chose this gorgeous digi of a buck although I think of him as a stag and despite the fact that I'm not pleased with my colouring of the hills, I do think he looks quite proud of himself!

Digi - 'Buck - Wild' - Reeces Scrap Pieces at Stitchy Bear's DO

The prize we are offering is a $10 voucher to spend at Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet you'll be spoilt for choice so we do hope you will enter this fortnight.

I'd love it if you could pop over and enter our challenge and also check on the work that the DT has produced, I hope that my teamies can inspire you with their 'male' themed creations.

Now for a little update on the feline family - as usual Donny and Blossom are 'behaving' themselves (almost) and young Biscuit seems to be feeling loads better,  he had to wear his 'Elizabethan' collar for three days to stop his 'over-grooming', I de-flea'd them all and also bought him some very expensive food  - £40 for a 3 for 2 bag of yummy dry food, mind you I will give some of this to the others as well.  I know that if they are all OK, I feel OK - daft isn't it. 

Oh well have a nice afternoon and I'll catch you all later.

Big hugs to you all and take care, especially those of you who have been feeling poorly lately.

Love Sue xxx

  4. Oh my, I love this. What a great job you have done and to say you are not happy with the colouring of the hills in background I think you are being too critical of yourself. You have done a magical job with this image and background, I love all the papers you have chosen behind this image and the fern die cuts in two tones are just perfect. Perfect overall and I love this design. Great work. Thank you for sharing with us over here at Classic Design Team Open Challenge and best of luck with your entry.
