OSAAT#21 ..........Military

Afternoon everyone

Well I have scheduled my post (again) as I should be on my way home back to Essex from my weekend in Somerset & Wales. When I blogged about the Speedway earlier I mentioned about the fact that the Navy & Marines were part of the pre-race entertainment. I totally forgot that the theme this week at OSAAT was Military!!!!

As I said our theme is Military & we want you to create a card for a member of the forces. This could be a birthday card, Xmas card, anything as long as it has the theme.

Stitchy Bear Stamps are sponsoring the challenge this week & are offering you 5 digis of your choice as the prize. Don't forget to pop over to the shop & check out their sale. You can get there from my sidebar if you need a link.

I chose a 3D sheet that I had featuring a Harrier jump of my favourite aircraft. The papers are a set from Toucan Scraps (you can find her in the store) & they are great colours for all types of men's & teenagers cards. I used 3 different papers from the set on my card. The sketch is taken from the sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday this week.

Well that was definately a short post for me lol!!!! Check back tomorrow for this week's Incy Wincy Designs challenge xx Clare x

Woo hoo Clare, I love aeroplanes and this one is fab, such a great card.
We will be in the middle of the Farnborough airshow soon, the flight path is right over our house, but I think it's great. This card reminded me of that.
A big pat on the back for the 'A' team and all their wonderful creations. Well done.
Have a happy day. Luv B xxx
