Good morning all.........sorry I've been a little absent this week. I've been celebrating the fact that I have family staying, who have flown in for Christmas, and therefore some company, a helping hand, and of course............babysitters! Yay!

So, Sunday has rolled around again and with it a nasty dose of snow, according to weather forecasts in these parts. Good news is though, there is a new challenge of course, over at the OSAAT Challenge Blog, the last challenge of the year. I'm sure you'll like the theme this week............everyone's favourite..........Anything Goes, and of course we have another great sponsor who will be offering a $10 gift voucher to one lucky winner...........

So on with the's my DT creation for this week..............

Sweet huh? This week I got to use an image called 'Kissing Couple' from Stampin Dragon Designs, which you can find at the Stitchy Bear and I Did It Creations Store. Really cute I thought, and you've gotta love silhouette' colouring involved and therefore a real time saver!

Now, if you've visited my blog before, you will know that any colour paired with black is an instant hit in my book, this lovely shade of turquoise being no exception. I had absolutely no intention of using this colour (I was going to keep it solely black and white) till I was routing through my stash and found this awesomely 'blinged' 'SWEET' sentiment I'd bought from a Michaels cheapie bin months ago.............perfect..........a colour scheme was born!

Papers on here are from Queen Martha Stewart again, and I used a Sizzix die (that I haven't used forevah!) for the numerous swirls. The flower is a combination of Prima and Sandylion and the cute heart button is another I picked up from my favourite scrapbook store......Two Scrapbook Friends. The bling and perfectly matched stick pins are $ store finds......gotta love em! As a finishing touch, I added embroidery floss from my stash and doodled around the edge of the card.

I like this card, it's super cute so I think I'll keep it for an Anniversary type of thing. Hop on over to OSAAT and check out the awesome inspiration from the rest of the DT.

This card, will of course be entering a few challenges, so I'll be back later with the deets.

Have a wonderful weekend.....what's left of it, and keep warm. I promise to be back soon with a few more creations.
