We Want You!

Hi everyone - I hope you'll forgive me for starting this post with a HUGE wooooohooooo! I've finally come to the end of my first semester back doing university study full time, and I couldn't be happier. Two blissful weeks off before I do it all again! It's been very tough at times, and there was a meltdown or two, but I persevered and the two weeks vacation feels all the sweeter! Of course, all the things that have stacked up while I focused on assignments will have to be taken care of, but I'll be sure to get some fun crafty time in as well.

It's time for a wooohooo for you too! This week at OCC I'm your hostess and we're having a design team call! The theme is "Your Style" We want to see a card that best represents your own personal style! I'll be leaving the OCC at the end of July after a wonderful almost two year stint. One of the things I have enjoyed most about this team is the diversity in stamping styles. I really hope you'll take on the challenge of showing us your style!
My style can change with my mood - I do like a broad range, but I think this card best sums up my 'main' style. Modern, bold colours, paper piecing, lots of layers and the ever present sentiment flag - it's all me!

This card uses the current WSC sketch from MFT Stamps. I'm also submitting it to RCC for their colouring challenge. I bought this Who's That Geek Guy stamp set, oh gosh, a year ago maybe, specifically to make a card for my darling hubby, who works on a computer all day. We're both kinda computer geeks, so I couldn't resist. This is his birthday card (and we're going to celebrate this one in style, next year is the big 3-0!)
Inside I've used sentiments from the Just my Type stamp set. The papers are from the Crate Paper Toy Box collection. I've also used the Dizzy Doily Die-namic and a star punch for a little something-something.

Don't forget to head on over to the OCC to see the design team creations and to show us your style - don't be afraid to try out for the team - we want to see what you've got!Have a wonderful weekend, I hope it involves some crafty time, and maybe a little cake - I know mine will!
