We Three Geese

Morning all! How is everyone today?  Our house is a bit subdued - the school holidays are over and Colin is heading back for his final year!

Can't believe it really, his school days coming to an end and a new chapter in all our lives.

But before I get too deep and thoughtful I have a new card to share with you for the new challenge over at an Oldie But A Goodie.

The theme this time is

Embossing
(Remember also to use something older that 6 months on your project and to tell us what it is)

And here is my card;



The sponsor today is Rick St Dennis, and he has very kindly agreed to give the winner some lovely digi images of their choice.


He also very generously let us DT ladies pick an image of choice, & I'm very pleased with my selection of "We Three Geese", available here.

Don't those geese have the funniest of faces? I loved them as soon as I saw them!

Anyway, my card uses Crafters companion papers pearls and a ribbon - the papers are my oldie and the colouring is done by Promarker.

Challenges;
ABC Christmas - P for polka dots, pearls, present, pale blue and Promarkers
Card Crafter's Circle - Winged things
Delicious Doodles - Christmas in August
Christmas at Sweet Stampin - Winter Animals
The Hobby House - Christmas
Come & Get It - Things with wings
Paper Playtime - Use Pearls
Cutie Pies - Anything Goes
C is for Challenge - Animals - Geese
Crafty Boots - Christmas in August
The Crazy Challenge - Animals

That's my take on the new challenge, now over to you.  If you need more inspiration, hop back to the main blog to check out the rest of the DT cards.  Finally a warm welcome to our new DT members, Sarah, Anne-Marie & Kelly.  I know I said this 2 weeks ago, but I didn't realise they weren't being officially announced till today!

Back into the garden for me today - the annual hedge trim begins - can hardly wait! Jx
