Well what a week we have had, not all good I am afraid but hoping to finish it much better. Our Daughter Kate had a car accident last Saturday, she went out in the early morning and it was -18 in Coningsby (on the news as being the coldest in the country!) and unfortunately skidded on some black ice. She has only been driving a year so this was extremely traumatic for her. Thank goodness she is ok - a few bruises and very sore but all in one piece ... phew. Unfortunately the car wasn't as lucky but this can be replaced our Kate isn't replaceable. So the week has been trying to sort out insurance and a car so that she can get to work.
All is good now she is fine driving again and back at work so another crises over in the Channon house. As I mentioned I am finishing the week on a high though tomorrow I am at the NEC attending a Ranger workshop with the one and only!! Tim Holtz. It is the trade show this weekend and we are staying over in Birmingham so that we can attend the show on Sunday and Monday. I will be taking lots of photos so that you can have a sneeky peep at some of the new goodies coming our way. Keep an eye out for these.
For this weeks challenge for Allsorts we are continuing with the Free and Easy February theme and here is what I would like to share with you
I have used one of Stampendous Jumbo stamps and this one is a particular favourite of mine. The stamp comes in 2 pieces - the frame and the cameo and this makes it so useful for so many projects. I have used a grand Spellbinder oval to place the stamp on and distressed it with Vintage photo. I also used Stampendous Cracked glass champagne glitter. This is a really gorgeous product. For the background I used distress stain - Wild Honey to cover some coated paper and Tim Holts Kraft Glassine paper to make some flowers.
I hope that you like my offering and please pop over to the Allsorts to check out all the girls gorgeous projects and don't forget their own blogs they are very inspirational.
Keep an eye out on the blog for the Trade show photos,
Bye for now,
