Christmas Chickadees

Good morning everybody:
How is your weekend going? Its time for a brand new challenge at One Stitch At A Time. This week is
Just like regular bingo, you want to get a line that goes up & down or across or diagonally. If you really want to challenge yourself, go for a full card! The last time I took part in a bingo challenge, I did use the whole card but not this time.

Here is my card:

Glittered flower centers



Now, I know you may be looking at this image and wondering what on earth I was thinking making this into a Christmas card?? Well, Christmas is a holiday that is celebrated on the same day in every country in the world, regardless of what season it is wherever you live. For instance, I happen to know that it is almost summer time in Australia now. Not every country is lucky enough to have beautiful snowy landscapes at Christmas, so this card is in honor of those countries. That is why I tried to colour the birds as chickadees and the flowers are suppose to be magnolias.
I chose to use the bottom row of our bingo card - CAS, Ribbon/Twine and Green.

Here is the bingo card with all of your options on it, and don't forget you must use a digi too.

Our sponsor this week is Creative Craftworld with 3 Promarkers for the winner who uses an image from Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps Outlet. There will also be a winner not using one of our digis for a $3.00 gift certificate to our store.

Steampunk Wishes

Good morning!
How is everyone this morning? How many of you are ready for Christmas?? Is that a bad word right now? I have not even started really; at least as far as the gift buying goes. Once we have snow on the ground, I will be itching to get things done up and ready.
This week, at One Stitch At A Time, we have a super easy challenge for you. It is time for
If you use one of the products from Stitchy Bear's Digital Outlet, you will be entered into a draw for our grand prize which is all of the images the design team used in Challenge #188. That is worth about $20.00! If you don't use one of our products, you will be entered into a separate draw for a $3.00 gift certificate to our store.

Before I show you my card for this week, I want to let you know that this is my very first attempt EVER at a "steampunk" themed anything. That's correct, I have never tried this style, ever. (I have never made a "Shabby Chic" creation either).
Well, here goes:

Do you have snow yet? We have had a flurry or two but nothing has stuck around, yet anyway. We have a new challenge starting today at One Stitch At A Time - #189 "Holidays/Occasions". That is why this post is called 'Blue Santa' as I have made a Christmas card. And, I was able to play with a brand new Santa digi from Stitchy Bear's Digital Outlet. It was designed by Hope Jacare.

Birthday Owl

Good morning blogging friends:

Did all of you have a good Halloween? I know my grand-children did, that's for sure. It even turned out to be a fairly nice night, temperature wise, and the rain held off too. I want to thank those of you who gave our last challenge a try. There were some very nice projects submitted for #187 - Boo.

One Stitch At A Time has a new challenge starting today. This week's theme is #188 - Use a Digi. This means that you MUST use something digital on your creation. It could be the image, a digital paper, a digital sentiment, etc. The prize this week is sponsored by Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet

The Prize is the full set of digi images that the DT used in challenge #186 , so that's about $20 worth of digi images. To win our main prize you MUST use an image that's available in Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet by any of our creators.  Remember to put a # after your name so we can find you easily. You can still enter with a none Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet image but will be entered into a separate draw to win $3 to spend in our store.

 It was my turn to pick the image for my little group and here is the card I made:
