Week 258 - Purple Passion

Hello Everyone!

Well! what a turn up with this gorgeous sunshine and so early in the year! I hope it doesn't burn itself out before the summer months get here!
It really has been a very busy and exciting week in the Channon house. Firstly Kate, our Daughter has got a new job and we are all so very pleased and proud of her. She starts her 10 weeks training in June and she cant wait. We went out for tea on Monday evening to celebrate.
Thursday was Mark's birthday and his treat (and mine because I had to go with him!!) was a Spa Day at Eden Hall.  What a fabulous day. 
 and to finish the week off it has been our Anniversary today 27 years married!

To start a new week at Allsorts Tracey and Challenged us to make a card 
and this is what I have made ~

This is a card that we made in class last week using Pinflair dies and matching papers.
The centre die is a Creative Expressions Sue Wilson design which has been backed with purple glitter card. The embossed background has been created using a Sheena Douglass embossing folder from her new India collection. It is an A4 sized folder and very useable. The class enjoyed making it as one of their 3 projects.

The sponsors this week are:

Passion for Stamps

 & Craft Fairy

Thankyou to them both for their generosity.
