One Stitch at a Time Challenge 113

This week at One Stitch at a Time, we're challenging you to use your favourite! Doesn't matter what it is, but your creations should include a favourite something.

Our sponsors this week are:

Now, you might recognise the image I chose this week - it's by Barbara Jensen and it's used a lot on the Stitchy Bear  site.

Of course, it looks quite different with different colours ... So, what's my favourite? Well, you've got lots of favourites here - I love colours - the brighter the better - and the best way I know to get them is to use Promarkers so there's two favourites. Then, there's the die cut and punched border. I love the clean look of punches and die cuts. You definitely won't find me tearing paper or distressing the edges unless I'm forced to - it's just not my style.

So, apart from the image and Promarkers, the paper is a Kate Knight design from a Totally Tropical pad, the die is from Nellie Snellen (I think ...) one I've had for a year or so, and the punches are from Tonic.

I hope you can join us this week, and I'm looking forward to seeing your favourites.

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

Oldie but a Goodie where they want die cuts and punches.
Creative Craft Challenges where anything goes,
Crafts and Me where they want die cuts and punches,
The Paper Shelter where anything goes,
Sweet n Sassy where they want feminine cards,

Especially like the image with the bright colors. The dies & punches compliment the card wonderfully. Wonderful Mother's day morn to find out I won Ch112 using SBDS Mouse House for my Mother's Day card I entered. My daughter who just finished up her sophomore yr of college will be home next wk. I'll celebrate Mother's Day when she arrives home.
