Week 227 - Autumn Colours

Hello Fellow Crafters!

I hope that this finds you well and have enjoyed a busy week playing with all of your crafty stash!
I have had a busy week with a couple of shows on Create and Craft demonstrating the fabulous new collection from Spellbinder D'lites and also have had 2 lovely workshops at the shop using Sheena's gorgeous Christmas design stamps.  It was also a lovely fellow member's birthday - Pat! today so we were all forced to eat cake!
We also held our 2nd Let's Create Together day at our local village hall and the fabulous Leonie and the Krafty Hands boys joined Caroline and myself teaching lots of Christmas ideas to 53 very eager ladies.  It was a fabulous day and if you were one of our lovely crafters I hope that you enjoyed the day as much as we enjoyed organising it.
We have booked another day for February and it is full already!!!
This week on the Allsorts Challenge blog our lovely Catherine (who joined us on Sunday all the way from Harrogate!) is hosting and she has chosen ......................
as our theme for the week.  This can be any crafting project as long as it has Autumn colours included in the design.
Thankyou to our sponsors for this week who are:
Digistamp and Crafty Ribbons.
This is my design that suits the theme really well and I love working with these colours as they are bright, cheerful and very rich.
The stamped image is from the Katy Sue designs Fashion stamps drawn by the lovely Sandra Wright.
I have used pro-markers to colour the image and distress ink to soften the edges.
The background paper is out of my stash.  You can't see that well but the flower centres have micro beads in them which I stuck with glossy accents.  The die cut frame is from Marianne Designs.
Please pop over to the Allsorts Challenge blog to check out my Teamies lovely designs for this week's theme.
If you pop in to check out the blog please stay a little longer and pop a comment in - I love to hear from you all.
I have another busy week at the studio coming up still demonstrating with the Spellbinder D'lites they are still exclusive to Create and Craft until 11th October.
I am in the studio:
Monday 3pm and 7pm
Tuesday 1pm and 6pm
and Thursday 10am and 4pm.
Thankyou so much for taking the time to check out the blog I really appreciate it, as you know.
Have a fabulous weekend and I hope to see you all really soon.
Bye for now
