Challenge #7 It's Bingo at Get Creative Challenges

It's Australia Day today, a public holiday here in Oz. Not sure what we are doing today, maybe just staying home and catching up on general things around the house. Our son bought a leg of lamb which he wants to spit roast but he's not using a proper spit - he has the motor and the bit that goes through the joint but not the stand section for the charcoal.  He was going to try and rig it up to his small charcoal barbeque. Hopefully he gets it cooked sometime tomorrow, lol.
The grandchildren start back at school tomorrow too and then the different craft groups will start up as well as they follow the school terms. Also choir rehearsals start tomorrow night too. It's been great not having to go out every Tuesday night and getting home at 10:30 p.m. We have a planned concert trip planned to Japan in 2016 so I am hanging in there for that as I joined the choir after they had done a couple of trips to America and the ones that were planned in the last 12 years have both fallen through!!!
Well, I had better get on and tell you about the new challenge starting at Get Creative Challenge Blog today. My blog post title says it all..... yep, a Bingo challenge.
You can pop over to the challenge blog and check out the bingo chart. Lots of variety and I'm sure that there will be something in the chart that will get your creativity flowing.

Challenge #47 at Completely Christmas Challenges

A lovely day here in Adelaide, warm and windy so out went the washing to be thrown in the machine and hung out to dry. I always have to kick the ball around for the dogs while I'm hanging the clothes on the line, they are very persistant, lol. Well I hope you are looking forward to your weekend and get some time to enjoy some craft or catch up with family and friends. We are out to a bbq with friends later today and tomorrow we are meeting our daughters partner's mum who has come down for the first time since the baby was born to meet her. She is four months old and her other grandma lives in the outback of Sth. Australia.
Well better get on and share my card with you as I still have to pop out to the shops for salad ingredients for tonight and a few groceries as it's a public holiday on Monday and the shops will be closed.
Our sponsor for this week is Sparkle n Sprinkle and the theme is ATG with a twist of making a card for a child.
Here is what I came up with.......

Recipe:
SU Garden Green cardstock for the basecard and circle punched matte
SU Real Red cardstock for the matte
White cardstock from stash for images and sentiment
DP is from Francheville 12x12 paper pad - Christmas Basics
Image from Sparkle n Sprinkle is the little angel called Treetop Angel (I had this one in my files and not sure that it is still available)
Tree was also in my stamp files and I forgot to put where it was from
Sentiment is from a freebie set of stamps.
Punches - two circle punches
Copic Markers
Wink of Stella pen
D/S Tape roller
Foam Dots

Okay have to rush now as not long before the shops shut and I still haven't decided what salad to make.
We would love to see you joining in with us at the challenge blog and who knows, you could be the winner of the fab prize from our sponsor.
Love to see you popping in and letting me and my teamies know what you think of our efforts.

A Sweet Valentine

Hello once again, I've taken this card from yesterday's post as the image was from one of the sponsors who  is no longer selling digital images and can't supply a prize. I've deleted it from that post and am adding it here instead because 1. I've already made it and 2. some of you have already seen it and will wonder what happened to it if I delete it altogether and 3. I like it......lol.
I've just come back from a morning of craft with my friend Shirley, where we made 4 fabulous cards. Three were Shirley's designs using KraftyHands printed sheets from a couple of different CD's. and the last one was also done with one of the sheets but I made up my own design, making a smaller card instead of the square one. Maybe I will share that one tomorrow.
Anyway, here is this sweet little bear and yep, I've used that paper pleating technique again. I quite like it for an embellishment, so now I know how to do it, I'm sure it will pop up from time to time.


Recipe:
SU Baked Brown Sugar cardstock for the cardbase
SU Night of Navy cardstock for the matte
White cardstock for image from stash
DP from Sugar & Spice Studio 12x12 paper pad - Chantilly
Image is from Crafty Sentiments Designs - Bundle of Hearts
Sentiment is from SU - Good Greetings
Nesties Circle Die for matte behind image.
White linen crochet thread
:Light Brown thread for stitching
Memento Black inkpad
Copic Markers
D/S Tape Roller
Foam Dots

Thanks for stopping by but gotta go hang out the sheets. It's a hot day here in Oz and we are supposed to have some rain later so want to get them dry and back on the bed so I don't have to go looking in the linen cupboard for more sheets and pillowcases!
Take Care,
Hugs,
Sandy

It's been a day at home looking after 3 grandchildren who stayed over last night and then our eldest daughter turned up with one of our granddaughters and asked could I look after her for about an hour.

Love her heaps, lol.    So.....thought I had scheduled my post for today but came to look and is was only in the draft stage, so here I am adding to it and getting it posted.
We've been out at the Street Party for the Tour Down Under and they had a bike contest, hubby won best vintage bike for one of his numerous bikes from the shed, it's about 80 something years old and still ok to ride. He won a couple of bottles of wine, which is funny because he doesn't drink!!!
