It's Goodbye From Me....

... So Long, Farewell, Aufedersein, Goodnight.....

After almost 2 and a half years I've decided that it is time for me to step down from the very first challenge where I was a design team member. It's been such fun being with this challenge from the day it was born until now, but it really is time to step aside from the One Stop Craft Challenge team. Thanks so much to all the OSCC DT girls, both past and present, for making the time there so enjoyable. We have had some giggles! I'll miss you all loads.

So, I'm going out with something I love to do, and that is by making some 3d items.

The OSCC challenge as set by Shelley this week is Black, White and one other colour.

I'm entering these makes into the following challenges:
A Spoonfull of Sugar - Tags (on the teabag)
Aud's Sentiments - Birthday Cards, Gift Packaging or Gifts
Try It On Tuesday - Inspired by a song (Two for Tea)
Crafty Pad - Something Yummy for your tummy
Creative Cottage - Tag you're it (tag on teabag)
Cupcake Craft Challenge - Anything but square
Dream Valley - Anything Goes
Fairy Fun Fridays - Inspired by a song
Papercraft Star - Movie, book or song inspired (Song = Tea for Two)
Stamp Vacation - Create Your Own Challenge - "Make mine a...(drink theme)"
The Cheerful Stamp Pad - Anything But A Card
The Stamp Man - Curls and Swirls
Wags n Whiskers - more than one fold

I was reminded last weekend of the teacup that I made for one of the OSCC challenges a while ago, so I thought I would dig the template out again and make another version of it. This one is far more vibrant than the can see that one here.

This time I've made it more obvious that the cup and saucer are paper crafted, by adding loads of pearls to them.

I've also made a little bag to hold some tea bags. If you're English you'll really appreciate the sentiment. We Brits seem to think a hot, sweet cup of tea will fix anything!

I've also made a little tag for the teabags. Aww how sweet!

Items Used:
Templates: Waltzing Mouse - look under digital items
Stamps: Victorian Frippery by Waltzing Mouse, Tag 'Compliments of the season by Waltzing Mouse, Sentiment on bag is Clarity Stamps
Inks: Spiced Marmalade distress ink and Black Versamark ink
Wild Orchid Crafts Roses
Mark Richards Pearls.
Please take a look at the wonderful items those talented OSCC girls have made.

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx

wow Sharon this is stunning.
I've just come from the OSCC but had to pop over and tell you how much I love this. I've never seen anything like it before, it really is pretty. My Mum would love one so I'm off to check out the template.
Good luck in any new ventures
