Week 203 - A Passion for Flowers.

Hello Everyone!

Apologies for the lack of blogging last week, I'm afraid I just totally ran out of time due to work commitments.  Not sure where this week has gone either - does anyone else suffer from this problem with time!!!! lol

This week it is our lovely Brenda's challenge for Allsorts and we have all been given the same kit to design with and, as you will see, we have all come up with something very different.
This is the kit that we were given to play with ....
This is what I have come up with ....................

(Unfortunately you cant see but I put some lace on the bottom of the blind in the window)
I tried to make the fence look like a balcony outside the window but it looks more like a fire hearth!!!) oh dear! must try harder next week!!

Talking of being a bit busy next week on C and C I have 18 live hours (I know what you are thinking OMG we will be so fed up with her)!!  I was asked to do the Pick of the Day on Tuesday evening and Wednesday and then they rang to ask if I could do the 4 Day Deal as well!  so from Monday to Thursday as some point you may catch a couple of shows or two!  I am doing Spellbinders - nothing new but lots of the latest designs that they have restocked at fabulous prices - well worth a look for sure.

Today I am on my way to a fabulous craft group at Eagle, Nr Lincoln for an all day workshop so that looks like a fun day - we are guilding and gleaming, cutting and masking, inking and stamping etc ....... I am going to work their socks off.  I hope they have had porridge for breakfast!!

Please pop over to the Allsorts Challenge Blog and have a peep at what the other girls have come up with this week and have a bash at the Challenge - I think this is going to be a popular week ahead.

I hope that you all have a lovely weekend and a great week ahead

During next week each day starting on Monday I am going to post 2 samples of the Spellbinder samples that are going to be on the shows next week.  Hope that you can pop by to have a quick look.

Bye for now and thank you for popping by and hope that you can leave a quick comment.
