Morning all sorry I guess that should actually be afternoon really but welcome to another Sunday challenge at OSAAT.
Wow what a super terrific turnout we had again you all really seem to be loving our challenges at the mo, and what an abundance of inspiration we all get when visiting all your truly fab blogs.
Have to say sorry to those who I don't actually manage to get to comment on as blogger is still being a fickle little bu**er and sometimes he will let me comment and others I get stuck in the sign in loop, some he offers me an name /URL way to sign in others I get zilch opportunity and what gets me most is it can be varied on the same blog so it might be that I can comment on one post and not on another on the same blog! It even happens when I try to comment on my teamies blogs too have to say it is slowly driving me nuts( well a bit more nutty really as I guess I went nuts quite a while ago really).
Right onto the challenge this time round and we have another super theme and bet we should get another barrow full of beautiful entries too as we want to see FLOWERS please lots and lots. I love flowers but get hay fever quite bad so am really looking forward to seeing so many beautiful blooms without the need for antihistamine to stop me sneezing lol.
The DT have pulled out all the stops as per and their blogs really are worth paying a visit too to find out how they put their projects together so please go leave them some love.
Our sponsor is the fab
and she is offering a £10 gift voucher and as she offers free P+P in the UK at least not sure about her overseas P+P policy you get to spend it all on goodies and I can tell you from personal experience she has some fab goodies and excellent delivery turnaround and any problems are sorted very quickly wonderful customer service so well worth winning.
My card I was lucky enough to play with a fab image by Sylvie of Sylvie's stamps 'boy with flowers which you can find here. I thought this would be a wonderful image for a sister's day card for my hubby to send to one of his sister's, for those who like the idea sister's day is the first Sunday in August so this year it falls on the 7th. Just for interest and as I only just found out too after much searching brother's day is celebrated on the Friday following the first new moon after 1st August so this year it falls on September 2nd.
My card I coloured with Promarkers which I seem to have had for ages and kept the colours fairly simple. The papers are some very old magazine freebies . I wrapped ribbon (again I have had for ages) and added some daisy buttons(old again) to finish off. The sentiment is simply a peel-off I know all you die hards will be tut tuting but still which I edges with white sakura pen.
