Challenge #193 Just Good Friends

Good morning guys, before I begin with this weeks challenge I would like to thank everyone who joined in last weeks challenge. The entries were just amazing and all your idea's for sport themed cards were great so well done all.

Now onto this weeks challenge, we welcome back a brilliant sponsor.....

Shop Blurb

As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!
If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps stamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.

Here is some inspiration from our amazing design team






Hope you all have a great weekend

Challenge 190 - SUMMER FLOWERS

Good morning

Yes - I know it is Sunday, 24 hours late, and my apologies.  We had a problem with our DT blog and lost all our cards, so they all had to be reloaded!

First of all - thank you so much to everybody who entered last week's challenge - there were so many fabulous entries.

This week week our theme is


and we would really like to see flowers as your main image rather than embellishments, though of course you can add them as well.

We were given the opportunity by Tracey Lynn Miller to choose some fabulous images from her Fred She Said store to use.   Please do visit Tracey's store for some lovely crafting goodness.

Store Bio:
Fred She Said Designs offers a wide variety of digital products with a floral flair and cute characters too - Digi's, Pre-coloured images, Papers, Sets, and Fred's Flower Kits. Have some fun with Fred!

And the prize is a $15 gift voucher to use in the Fred She Said store.

This is what the design team have come up with for our Summer Flowers challenge.

GoodLuck everybody - we look forward to seeing your projects.

Hugs from the Design Team at OSCC
