Challenge #158 at Aud Sentiments Challenges

Have succumbed to the cold bug that has been running rampant throughout the family. I thought I have been doing ok as it's been hanging around for at least a month with grandkids and hubby breathing on me. My brain has been in a bit of a fog so forgot to get my card done in time but here it is eventually. The theme for the challenge starting at Aud Sentiment Challenges is: Include a Funny Sentiment. Our sponsor is the wonderfully talented Bugaboo Digi Stamps.
Here is my card using an image that I already had... I decided to get a start on Christmas cards as last year just flew past and this year is nearly already half over!!!!

SU Garden Green cardstock
SU Real Red cardstock
White cardstock from stash
DP and sentiments from Kaisercrafts
Image from Bugaboo Digi Stamps : Stella ~ Dear Santa Note
Quickcutz die
Scalloped circle punch
Copic Markers
D/S tape roller & foam dots

Very late here and I have to get up early and pick up my daughter to go to a charity auction down south, so a bit of a drive and need some sleep!
Hope you come over and check out the DT inspiration at Aud Sentiments and use the link to enter one of your creations as well.

Just for Fun at Crafty Girlz Challenges

Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Crafty Girlz Challenges. We don't have a sponsor for this challenge so this one is just for fun. The DT were allowed to use whatever we wanted to and I chose to keep mine simple and not colour an image. Instead I chose to use one of my many!!!! dies that are sitting in my craft room. In fact this is the first card I've made with this lovely vintage lady silhouette. I designed it for my ladies today at the class I teach at a Community Friendship Centre.
Here it is..........

SU Mossy Meadow cardstock
SU Very Vanilla cardstock for the sentiment
SU Basic Black for the diecut lady
DP from Dovecraft 12x12 paper pad ~ Sweet Paris
Sentiment from CTMH
Die is Couture Creations
Nestie Dies - Standard Circles ~ large & small
SU Punches - large oval & scalloped oval
SU Chocolate Chip inkpad

Have to rush but please come and join in the fun of the new challenge at Crafty Girlz Challenges.
Thanks for stopping by,
Take Care,

Fisherman's Delight for the Bingo Challenge at Get Creative Challenges

Hi, we are back from our trip to the Mallee, We went up Saturday night after going to the charity auction and packing the car. Our daughter and grand-daughter came with us and we got there late evening. Just enough time to make the beds and sit around having a cup of coffee with some of our other children and grandies. We came back early today as someone was coming here to buy a mantlepiece (one that goes around a fireplace) and they were coming from the riverland which is quite a drive. Halfway home (after getting up and leaving before breakfast!) we find out that they are not coming at all. We were not impressed. Missed out having a delicious bacon, egg and tomato breakfast and saying goodbye to everyone as they were still all asleep. I've been up since 4:30 as our 20 month old granddaughter woke up unwell so I got up to help clean up and sort things out so they could go back to bed.
Anyway back to the real reason I am posting today and that is to let you know that we have a new challenge starting today at Get Creative Challenges. Our sponsor for the challenge is Pattie's Creations and as my post title suggests, my image is titled Fisherman's Delight.
Here is my card............

SU Night of Navy cardstock
SU purple cardstock (forgotten the name)
Image is from Pattie's Creations - Fisherman's Delight
Stamps - Kaisercraft netting stamp for the background
            - CTMH clear stamp set for the sentiment
Textured netting from an op shop find. It was a huge reel so will be able to share with my friends.
Copic Markers
Memento Tuxedo Black inkpad
Washi tape from stash
D/S tape roller & foam dots.

Here's the bingo chart for you to work from....
Love to see you joining in the challenge this fortnight. Pop over and check out the DT inspiration at the challenge blog too.
