Challenge 135 at Aud Sentiments starts today

Today started out with showers but ended up a reasonable day and actually gave me some time to get outside to take a couple of photos for upcoming DT cards. A catch up with some cardmaking this morning and then out to my friend Jane's house where I did some colouring while Jane made a card with a new stamp set she got with a magazine purchase. I'm going to try it out too as I have the same set and my ladies will be making it when class goes back after school holiday. I also went with her to Spotlight where I had seen a paper pad advertised, but they didn't have any, I bought a small stamp set and some embossing powder instead!!! Then we went and picked up her dog from the vet where he had had several teeth removed. Got home just in time to pick up hubby and head out for a meal with friends who have been away for 3 months caravaning around Australia. Better stop chatting and fill you in on the newest challenge.
Our new challenge at Aud Sentiments starts today and the theme is to use Animals plus a sentiment on your creation. Our sponsor for this fortnight is the fabulous Imagine That! digis by Kris

Challenge 3 at Crafty Girlz Challenges

It's raining today, so Isaac and I drove my DIL to work (she normally rides her Vespa scooter) and then we decided to go to a secondhand shop to have a look around. I need some 80's clothes to wear to my son's 30th birthday party in August and thought I had better start looking now. Of course, we didn't come away from the shop without a little monster truck for Isaac, lol.'s time for a new challenge to start at Crafty Girlz Challenges and you can either do an ATG project or follow the theme of: Use your flag colours to create your project.
I chose to use my flag colours (Australian flag- red, white & blue) to colour my image and also to create the card. Our sponsor for the challenge is SLS Lines and they are offering 3 digi images to the winner of the challenge.

Enjoying an icecream - Challenge #128 at 613 Avenue Create

It's just started to "spit" outside but hubby is hoping it doesn't turn into a proper rain as he is outside trying to shift things around in the driveway. He has a large collection of "junk" oops, I mean useful things cluttering up the driveway!!! I hope you have been enjoying your weekend. Hubby, myself, our youngest daughter and also youngest granddaughter drove down to Victor Harbor yesterday to visit with friends and go to a charity auction. Our daughter is into buying and selling bits and pieces for vintage or rustic weddings so she was happy to snap up several pieces at a cheap price to resell. We dropped them home last night and unpacked the trailer and before she went to bed, she already had sold a lovely vintage mirror. Hopefully the rest of the things will move quickly as well. I had a very early night as I ended up with a migraine which is still lingering today. Might have to go to bed early tonight as well to try and shake it off.
Well I had better get on and share my make for 613 Avenue Create this week where the theme is - Anything Goes with the optional twist of using your flag colours. I live in Australia and our flag colours are ~ Blue base with Red and White. Our sponsors for this challenge are: Rick St. Dennis and Sami Stamps.
Here is my card.......

SU Real Red cardstock
SU Night of Navy cardstock
White cardstock from stash
DP from Sugar & Spice Studio 12x12 paper pad - Mono Positive Negative
Image is from Sami Stamps - Enjoying my Icecream
Sentiment is a Magnolia Rubber Stamp
Nestie Die - Deckled Rectangles ~ Large and Small
Copic Markers
D/S Tape Roller
Foam Dots
SU Real Red inkpad
Pearls from stash

My fellow teamies and I would love to see you stopping by the neighborhood and entering your creations for the challenge. You'll be in the running for one of two prizes and who knows your card might be one of the top 3. You may even want to do a bit of blog hopping and check out the DT cards or some of the other entrants and leave a comment or two.
I think I'm going to head off and get myself a warm cup of cocoa and maybe start the wood fire too as the sun has nearly gone and it's getting pretty cool.
Catch you all later,
Take Care,
Hugs, Sandy
