Sunday again

And that means that it's time for another challenge over at OSAAT, woohoo! This week we have a VERY special offer going on. Each of the creators has put a brand new item in the Stitchy Bear Stamps store today, and if you use one of these new items to enter the challenge, you get another item from the same creator for free!
And the theme this week is to Celebrate Something! It doesn't have to be a big something that you traditionally celebrate (although of course it can be! :P), you can also choose to celebrate something smaller - see all the wonderful DT cards for examples, they've celebrated everything, a new house, a wedding, a new puppy, a new pair of shoes, the precious days of summer. So, what will you celebrate this week? I can't wait to see :D
I've used the brand new, fabulously sweet image from Robyn's Fetish called Dad's Fishing Hole, and I decided to use it to celebrate all those small, everyday moments that usually get over-looked. Even if you don't make a card, just take a moment this week to personally celebrate something small - a flower in your garden, the smell of a tasty dinner, a smile on the face of a loved one. Ahh, I'm going all soppy, lol, can you tell? :P

Here are the challenges that I made this card for:
Cute Card Thursday - anything but square
Daisy Doodles - Manly
The Shabby Tea Room - Just for Dad
A Crafty Little Place - anything but square
Tuesday Morning Sketches - followed the sketch, but I squashed it down a bit and cut off the corners
Tellen's Place - Father's Day
Inspiration Avenue - Summer fun and relaxation
Color Chef - cream turquoise, chocolate and kraft
CRAFT - for a man
Cute Card Thursday - anything but square
Charisma Cardz - spots and stripes
Stampin' for the weekend - Summer
Craftalicious - New
Just Us Girls - Digital technique. Obviously, this isn't a new technique for me, but I love love love the fact that card-making now has digital components :D I have poor eyesight and I'm frankly rubbish at rubber stamping, but now that I can do stuff digitally I can zoom right in to whatever I'm working on and see all the detail and colour all the small bits that I would have had to just smudge over without my pc. LOL, if you haven't tried digital images or paper before, I highly recommend it, my craftwork has come along in leaps and bounds since I started using the pc to help :D
Craftalicious - New. You can either celebrate something new or use something new, and I've used a brand new image, as mentioned above :)
