Week 196 - For A Lady

Good Morning Crafters!

How are you all? and Happy March!  Gosh isn't it lovely to see January and February out.  I am a real lover of Springtime and March is the beginning although it is still quite fresh at least we are seeing a little more of the big shiny thing in the sky!!

What a busy week again on Create and Craft - the Blockbuster is flying still and we have so many sell outs this week and have really loved all the demos and the enthusiasm of all the presenters - they just love the Spellbinder shows and I try to get them involved if I can. I have shows today at 11am, 4pm and 7pm.
Thankyou to everyone for all the fabulous emails and pictures that you have sent into the studio - you really are a talented lot out there.  

It is Saturday so that means an Allsorts post and I always look forward to creating a project for this and today is no exception. 

This week's challenge title is

For a Lady!

I have used one of the gorgeous Wild Rose Studio stamps - we have started to stock this range in the shop and I absolutely love them.  They are excellent quality and perfect for colouring, they have so much detail.  I have used pro-markers to colour.  I stamped the image onto a Spellbinder die - Opulent Ovals.  this really suits the design as it is so feminine and very delicate.  I used Marianne Design punches to make the flowers - these are the punch and emboss punches - I love using these as they always give stunning dimension.

I hope that this makes you feel Springlike and it spurs you on to have a go at our Challenge this week.  Pop over to the Allsorts Challenge blog and have a peep at the other lovely design team cards and projects.
thankyou also to our fabulous sponsors this week Digistamp and Pin and Tack
Thankyou so much for popping by and I hope that you all enjoy a lovely weekend whatever you have planned.  I am hoping to have a bit of a chill out after another busy week. 
Thankyou in anticipation of your comments - you know that I really appreciate them and love to hear from you.

Bye for now
