Anything with OSAAT

Hello good morning, isn't it good to have Blogger back again.... I'm unfortunately missing lots of nice comments but no missing posts at least. .. I was just saying to myself on Thursday that my blog is like a diary to me so seeing it gone made me so depressed that I just went off for an early night. Hubby thought I was unwell ha ha and me realised how I am getting so hooked with blogging..... bad sign?

Anyway, just got home now with my kids, from managing to apply to be an extra in Brad Pitt's newest film World War Z, which parts of it are going to be filmed in Malta next month! I had already tried on Friday but seeing the long queue, I gave up, so we tried again today, and we did it after 4 hours waiting. Fingers crossed we get chosen now because there were over 6000 applying and not sure how many extras they need. First time I'm doing this, so I'm really hoping to get in. 

Well, I have my DT Card today for this week's challenge at One Stitch At A Time. The theme this week is ANYTHING GOES, so a really nice and easy one. For my card I got to choose from one of Teri's Delicious Doodles gorgeous images and I decided on this cute little bear

Before printing out my stamp I turned just the number one to alpha on GIMP and then changed it to my gingham green paper... this is a quicker way of paper piecing and one more thing I like about digi images. I coloured the rest of the stamp with my promarkers and did also some shading on the number. To do the stars and banners I'm using my new die cuts from Die-Namics. 

For our lucky winner this week we have a £10 Voucher from Joanna Sheen store.

These are my challenges for my card.
- Stamp Something - ANYTHING
- Craft Your Passion 5 - CHECKS, PLAIDS or GINGHAM
- Ladybugs Craft Ink 27 - BLACK, WHITE + 1
- My Mum's Craft Shop 5 - TO DIE FOR
Crafty Creations 118 - ANYTHING
- Penny's Paper-Crafty 53 - ANYTHING
- Little Miss Muffet 9 - TAGS or BANNERS
- Lili Pad Cards - EMBOSSING

..  and another one, thank you Brenda
Moving Along with the Times - TWO Bs (Bunting and Bear)

Now some really exciting news today wooo hoo :) I did a Top 3 at Incy Wincy  :)

with my Wedding Card 

... and one more exciting news .. he he hubby gave me a really nice Hobby Daylight Lamp for a birthday present which is next Wednesday... . I was saying that I wanted one after I saw Mandy's post showing us how she uses this lamp to photograph her cards and so it looks like he heard me ... wink wink :) 

I'm off now to finish off some DT Cards for next week, and some ordered cards as well but I'll be back as soon as I'm ready to come and say hello. Thank you for looking today, 

Big hugs

Thanks for the link to Mandy's glitter post, I've got a light tent cheap off ebay so the lighting is better in my photos but the glitter does not show very well, this is probably the answer to my probelem.

Love your card, so crisp and clean and the gingham is a great addition.

Love Mandy xxx

Kitty said...
