OSAAT #186- Just For You

Hello my friends and Happy Sunday!  Well, something's new at Maggie's Cat House.  Can you tell what it is??  Two things really.  First, after 2 years, I decided the time was right to step down as part of the Design Team for The Perfect Sentiment Challenge.  It has been an incredible two years and I'm grateful to Jennipher Lowery for giving me the chance to be on her Design Team.  I'm really going to miss that team, but thought that it was the best thing to do now.

The good news is that I was invited to be part of the Design Team for One Stitch at a Time!  I am super excited to be part of this great Team!  I'll be posting my cards every other week.  Here is my first card for this week. I almost forgot to mention that I printed this out twice, cut out the flowers and then mounted them with dimensionals over the bottom image to give it more depth.

Materials Used:
  • Image - Stitchy Bear -  Barbara Jensen Designs - Sunflower
  • Sentiment - Stampin Up - Tea Shoppe
  • Cardstock - XPress It Blending Card; Stampin Up Mellow Moss and Early Espresso
  • Designer Paper - Authentique - Thankful Collection
  • Ink - Memento - Rich Cocoa
  • Accessories - Ribbon, Stampin Up Delightful Daffodil; Decorative Edge Scissors; Nestabilities, Classic Circle and Lacey Circle Dies; Stampin Up, Small Label punch; Dew Drops, and Stampin up Dimensionals.
  • Copic markers - E18; Y23, Y32, Y35; YG91, YG93, YG95
Our sponsor for this week is our very own StitchyBear Digi Outlet.  The prize is a complete set of digi images that the team used in challenge 184.  In order to win this fabulous prize, you must use an Image from our store.  The Runner up prize. For person using none store image... Prize is $3

I do hope that you'll all play along with us and check out the One Stitch at a Time Challenge blog to see what the rest of this week's Design Team has created for your inspiration.
