Do you want to get sticky at One Stop Crafts?

Hi everybody

Saturday morning dawns, and the weather is much like I have been this week.  Dear OH and I have had some sort of fluey bug, and we have both been pretty grotty.  Unfortunately very little in the way of crafting has got done, but I have 'attempted' to sort my craft room out, only now I seem to have even less space.  I think I need to go on a stash diet.  Having sorted all my plain card I have a 4ft shelf stuffed to the gunnels, and that is only the coloured stuff, I probably have almost as much white and cream!  Enough rambling ...

On to the challenge this week at  One Stop Crafts.  The theme is Stick It, and we want to see Stickers on your work.  How difficult is that you may think - well I cannot remember the last time I used them, so it was a case of hunting for them.  They are barely visible on my card - I have outlined the image and sentiment with gold lines.  This is a card for my father - he likes old cars and flowers.  Hence the flower, and a little lace to soften it a bit.  Until a few years ago Dad was an avid gardener, and the garden was full of the most amazing flowers, but ill-health has prevented him gardening in recent years.  My image is The Old Truck  from Fred She Said, and the paper is from the Memory Box Valise paper pack.

We are sponsored this week by Sassy Studio Designs.  They have a range of modern digi images which are very charming.  The winner will receive 4 digi images as their prize.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Bloggers Challenge - It's Manly Baby!
Glitter Geeks - Male / Fathers Day
Mami Doodlrd - Card for a boy or man
Poodles Parlour - Anything goes
Wags 'n' Whiskers - One for the boys
