OSAAT#23 - Some Goodbyes

Good morning from a very overcast Essex. I was meant to be out car booting this morning but the forecast wasn't very good so I decided to stay in & get some work done xx

We have a fab challenge for you over at OSAAT this week but first for some sad news. Our lovely DT leader Sam has decided to step down from the DT & leave us to give her love & attention to her fabby store. If you haven't seen you really ought to take a look as she creates the most gorgeous crocheted items xx Secondly, our lovely creator Susan (Crafty Chaos) has decided to leave the store as a creator. However she is staying on with us at the DT so it's not a total goodbye. But as a special send off all our creations were made this week using Susan's fab papers.

Right onto this week's challenge. Stitchy Bear Store is sponsoring us again this week & they are giving away 3 digital images to the lucky winner.

We want to see your cards using the colour scheme......Black, White & one other colour. This would have been a brilliant challenge but as I went to make my card on Tuesday....my black ink cartridge run out on my printer!!!!!! So when it finally came on Friday my card ended up rushed :-( But here it is anyway.....

I used last week's sketch over at Sunday Sketch & Stamp. I won't be entering it though as the challenge changed this morning doh!!! I didn't even get to create the inside of the card this week as I just run out of time. So this is going to be a really short post & the details are at the bottom lol!!! xx Clare x
