One Stitch at a Time Challenge 129

This week at One Stitch at a Time, we've got a great challenge, and prize. The artists on the team have been busily creating images and papers to make a grand prize!

And don't forget, is you're not lucky enough to win, you can still get this set of images and papers free if you buy $12 worth of products from Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps!

I got to work with a lovely image from Reece's Scrap Pieces. She's called it Back to School but it's got many more uses than that! I've incorporated it into a digital collage that I made as an e-card for my son. He's spending a year abroad as part of his degree, and so far, he's been in Germany for three weeks, and will soon move onto France for a semester at university there. Then, in the spring, he'll go back to Germany again. He'll be living in university halls while he's away, but getting actual postal addresses for those is hard unless you're actually there (we don't have any idea of room or building numbers, for example), so sending him a paper card would be difficult or at least delayed.

I used Photoshop Elements throughout. The background is one that came with that software, and the various other additions came from some vintage images in the Crafty Image Emporium CD that I bought from Crafty Computer Paper a couple of years ago.

I hope you can join us this week.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

(I checked each set of challenge rules and didn't see any prohibition of e-cards. If this project doesn't fit your rules, I apologise. I've never entered an e-card into challenges before!)

ATCs and Cards with Attitude where anything goes,
Fat Pages and Cards with Attitude where anything goes,
Fresh Brewed Designs where the theme is 'end of the summer',
The Perfect Sentiment where anything goes with a sentiment,
Everybody Art where anything goes,
CD Sunday where it's Allsorts.
Unique Crafters where anything goes.

What a perfect image for this card for your Son. Hope he has lots of adventures but I am sure you will be missing him. At least it is easier to keep in touch with technology these days ad you can keep sending him fab cards like these :)

Love Mandy xxx
