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:

  2. Tracey, this is such a gentle and delicate image that you have coloured so sympathetically and mounted on such a pretty Birthday card. It's lovely. Love Ingrid xxx

  3. Lovely card Tracey! Did you use distressing inks around the edge of the image? It looks very effective :)
