Week 207 - True Blue

Hello Crafters!

I hope that finds you all well and have had a good week.  What a busy one in the Channon household  As you know from the lateness of last week's post we surprised Mark with a 4 day trip to Dublin and it was fantastic.  Not sure if I could deal with all the stress of organising a surprise trip again though! phew it took some doing as we are together 24/7 working and living together! 
I will pop some photographs on the blog in the week but they are on Kate's camera at the moment and she is working.  
We also went out for a meal on Wednesday evening at it was Mark's actual birthday and we had a fabulous time in the company of our family and special friends.  Thursday was our 26th wedding anniversary so with one thing and another the lounge is full of cards!

Back to this weeks Challenge - it is our lovely Sarah's week to set our challenge for us and she has chosen:

True Blue

In todays workshop at the shop today we were crafting using the Fabulous Shoes cd rom and stamp collection from Katy Sue Designs which were fun to use.
This is one of the projects that we did and I thought it fitted the Challenge brilliantly so I thought I would share this with you.

This is a digi print from the CD Rom and I love it - it was so much fun to colour and there is so much detail on the picture.  The sentiment is from a stamp sheet from the series too.  The blue paper is from my stash and the flower has been cut out from the Grande Peony Spellbinder Die. The design was coloured using pro-markers.
I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it.

I will be back on C and C on Tuesday for 5 more sales shows which I am sure will have some great bargains on again so pop by and have a peep if you have time.

Please pop over and have a look at the Allsorts Challenge Blog and check our the other design team members ideas for the Challenge.

Thankyou as ever for popping by and I hope that you enjoy a lovely weekend and a busy week ahead.

Bye for now and enjoy your crafting this week,
Jo xx

  12. It's so small so you can bring it when you travel around. Loading time from screen to screen can vary and at times seems like it may take longer than usual but overall performance is great. Thus, Roku has been the favorite name when it comes to streaming players.

  14. Simplicity, functionality and durability are the features that identify classic things for women.
    Even the most discerning eye would often be unable to
    tell the difference. Hamilton Mens Watches have always been known for their accuracy
    and simplicity, this model will not disappoint.

  15. Yes, that is less than my i - Pad weighed in its Otter - Box Case.
    In mid-2009 the third generation landed and it was more
    than a year later, in October 2010, that we were treated to the new super-skinny design ' a design that was once again revamped in July 2011. There are several notebook reviews which give you information about latest laptops launched in the market.

  16. Hi Jo, great card, I have the Fabulous Shoes CD and will have a go at the digiprint version, I can then personalise to whomever I have in mind, great practice as well as I don not use my promarkers enough. All the best Jo. Valeriex
