One Stitch at a Time Challenge #19


Hi All, back again with my second post of the day. 

Here is my very first DT card for the One Stitch at a Time Challenge blog, I do hope you like it!

The challenge for this week is Stars and Stripes - so we are looking to see stars and/or stripes on your projects.  I have used the fantastic digi papers by Toucan Scraps, available from Stitchy Bear Stamps here.  They come as a set of 6 designs in 8x8 size and are amazing value, I have only used 3 of the designs that come in the set.  I loved the denim theme and they printed brilliantly.  I am sure that I will be printing many more of these paper sheets.  They go so well with the dreaded "man cards".

I must admit, I haven't really used digi papers very much before now - but, WOW! I am now a total convert.  I love these and they will help go a small way to keeping my crafting clutter down as everything is stored on my laptop.

This week's prize is 3 digis from the Stitchy Bear shop - of the winner's choice. 

Don't forget to check out the DT blogs of my OSAAT buddies and visit the challenge blog here.


I look forward to visiting your blogs to see your take on our challenge.

The image I used is from Pollycraft and I've coloured it with my pro markers.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
The Pixie Cottage - I used their brilliant sketch
Ginger Snap Creations - Shades of blue
ABC Challenge - X is for Xtra dimension
Charizma Cards - One for the Guys
Paper Cutz - Circles, Stars or Squares
Polka Doodles - Boy's Birthday
Crafty Catz - let's go digital

7 challenges!!! I think that's a record for me!

Thanks for stopping by and do have a go at the challenge.
