OSAAT new challenge

Happy Easter one and all and I hope the Easter Bunny has been good to you all but if he has brought you loads of chocolate no making yourself sick on

Well Sunday brings a new challenge over at OSAAT and this time we are showcasing the fathers day/sports collab which can be purchased here for $50 or is free with purchases over $10 or more, bargain if you ask me.

We have more fab sponsors too and prizes from


This time round I was given a cheerleader to play with by the talented Sue from Beary dust you can get her here .

I decided to print her straight onto my card and stick with a red black and white theme. Took me ages to decide how to make her in to a fathers day card, as cheerleading isn't that big here in the UK and was unheard of when I was at school so please forgive me if my sentiment is all wrong and far too English. I wrote my words on word using Wordart and then printed the insert too.

The image is coloured with Promarkers and the pompoms took a while and a few attempts to get right but I ended up with gift wrap ribbon which I cut in to small strips coloured some with Promarkers and left the other bits. I curled the ends with scissors and stuck them on with PVA letting each couple dry, as I found otherwise they slid out of place. I think it looks fab and am pleased with it but then again what do I know about cheer leading zilch!

The inside I wrote DAD!

Can't wait to see what you all come up with. The theme isn't just fathers day though you can do sporty things too, well many Dads love their sport don't they?

The rest of the DT have done some fab work as always awe inspiring so please pop by and show them some love for all their inspiration and then play and have fun, beats eating chocolate in my book and it's healthier too.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:-

Claudia and co-clean and simple
I love promarkers-anything goes
Delicious doodles-anything goes
Pile it on- 2 or more ribbons do all my little gift wrap ribbons count?
creative inspiration challenge-use a digi
