Week - Use your ABC's - Allsorts Challenge

Hello Crafter's

How are you all this morning?  I hope by the time that you are reading this we are on the way to visit Hazel Bainbridge's shop aka Tabbycat Designs, in Beverley near Hull. I am running a workshop for her today for 16 of her lovely customers and we have a full day of play ahead with so much variety in our techniques. 
It has been a Die-lightful week!!!!!!  (sorry couldn't resist that one and so early!!!) in other words I have been really busy up and down to the studio demonstrating the Di-lite collection of dies.  I am still loving the versatility of these and can't wait to get them in the shop.
These are some of the samples that I have made over the week ~
Using the Ornate Corner and the Frames 2 for the centre.

Here I am using the Holly Wreath and the Ornate Corner

                                          You can see here I am using the Filigree Cross, Blooms and the Corner

I have used the cross again here and the Tiger Lillies.

I really like the colours in this one - I have used the Medallion 9 and the Sprigs.

Here I have a combination using the Sprigs, a mixture of the blooms and the Frame 2.

If you would like to pop by again tomorrow I will post the other projects that I have done for you to see how gorgeous these dies are.

Now back to the matter in hand -

Use Your ABC's in the Allsorts Challenge this week and it is my week to host and I would like to see projects using the Alphabet but not in a sentiment.

I have chosen to use Woodware's Snow stamp which I love (and also Catherine has used!)

As you can see I have Zentangled it - it really lends itself to this technique.  I have recently taught myself and I am rather pleased with how this came out.
I have added a few embellishments with ~Spellbinder snowflakes and a few gems.
Please pop over to the Allsorts Challenge Blog to check out what the other DT members have done.

Thankyou for popping by and I hope that you like what I have shown you today, please leave a comment you know I love to read them.
Enjoy a lovely weekend - must dash now Hull awaits!

Bye for now

    1. Thanks for the inspiration Jo. I've loved watching you do all these Spellbinder shows and bought the D-lites full set (naughty but nice!) so it helps to have some ideas on how to use them. You continue to be one of my favourite demonstrators on C&C - you're lovely!
