OSAAT Fathers Day Challenge Revised

Good morning.  I am currently having internet  problems.  So this will be extremly short.  This week over at   OSAAT the challenge is to do a card for dad. 
I will make sure that when we go for Easter dinner I will fix this post up properly.  So for now have a happy Easter.  Untill later.

Okay so now its later, and I am at work.  Our internet provider was down, cause it was down at my parents as well. 
So onto whats going on this week over at OSAAT. Its collab time again, and Stitchy is offering one lucky person the full kit!
Our other sponsors this week are:  Cosmo Cricket, they are offering  one lucky winner "Upcycle Crafting Kit" 
 and last be certainly not least Digis With Attitude!, and they are offering one lucky winner a choice of 5 digis!  
Now how cool is that three sponsors this week.  Also I can't forget at the store there is a sale going on.  It lasts untill Friday so head on over and check it out! 
So this week I got  to play with a stamp from Toucan Scraps.  Its is so beautiful!  It just perfect for my father in law, his nick name is Rooster and they collect everything "Rooster".  So this is the card he get this year to tell him he is loved.  The paper is also from Tucan Scraps.  I have fallen in love with digital papers, they are so versitile and so easy to print from home.

Color Challenge

This week over at CR84FN is a beautiful color challenge.  Here is the inspiration image:

Think of all the possibilities......I know that I had so many ideas running through my head it took me over two hours to finally get this card finished. So on to the card.  All the paper is digital.  The printed paper is a freebie I got from Melstampz.  And the Pink is from TwoPeas, its by  DRD~Happy together solid paperpack.  To make the lace trim I used a Martha Stewart punch.  The Happy Mothers Day sentiment is from CTMH.  The ribbon and pearls are also from CTMH.  

 These fantastic flowers I made from scraps of the pink paper.  I followed a ribbon flower tutorial but used the scrap paper instead.  Make sure that if you try this to break down the paper fibers.  I also used some Stickles on them to give them a little shine.

Thanks so stopping in and taking a look.  Have a great weekend, I am off to clean house.
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Pear Tree~lace
Aud Sentiments~Anything goes
Pals Paper Art~flowers
Crarfts and Me~Ribbon
Anita Be Stampin~ Anything goes

New Baby OSAAT Sunday Challenge

Good Sunday morning , hope everyones weekend is going well.  I have spent mine making wedding invitations, its crunch time for me as they need to get to my client by Monday.
On to the reason for todays post, it time for a new challenge over at One Stitch At A Time.  This weeks challenge is new baby, which happens to be just in time as one of our friends just had a baby girl this week.  Our wonderful sponsor this week is The Stamping Boutique.  They are offering the winner a choice of 5 digis.  If you click on their badge it will take you to their store.  

 On to my card for this fab challenge. So I tied my hand at making a oval easel card.  I go to use Mom to Be stamp by  Reeces Scrap Peices .  What a cute set , here is a preveiw of it.  Its available at the Stitchy Bear Store along with many many other digis.  Head on over to take a look.  Also if you spend over $10 you get the colab kit for free.
April Mother's Day / Babies Collaboration
I only used the crib as the baby has already arrived.  I colored it with my pc.  The "Little Angle" stamp is from CTMH as is the doily stamp.  
 This cute little flower I made myself.  I found a video online on how to make your own ribbon flowers, I used paper instead.  I think it worked out just fine.
Okay now it your turn.  Head over to OSAAT to get tons of amazing inspiration.  Give all the ladies some love on their personal blogs too.  We all love to here from you.   Have a great day!
