Week 266 - Fairies - Allsorts Challenge

Good Morning Crafters,

I hope everyone is well and happy out in Craft Land. My apologies for my absence last week I was snowed under and just could not fit one more job into a very full week.
The end of the week included our fabulous Let's Create day at our local village hall and it was a superb day with 54 very enthusiastic, but tired crafters going home with 4 great projects.
Thankyou to the excellent Paul Church, the very creative Chris Scott and our superb resident tutor Caroline.
 
These are a few of the photographs that were taken on the day.
 
Pauls Buff it and Gentle Blends project.


The Mum's getting the lovely food out.

The ladies doing Caroline's very pretty Decoupatch project.
 
A lovely day had by all.  we are now looking forward to the next one in November - with a Christmas theme!!
 
Back to todays Challenge for Allsorts.  We have been asked to design a card with Fairies as our inspiration.  The Pinflair Scenes sprang to mind and this is what I came up with.
 
This was such a quick an easy card to do just a little blending, a little glitter and a flourish and a flower has made quite a pretty card. 
 
Today at the shop is parchment class and the students will be concentrating doing a little grid work!
I must sign off now and get the workshop ready, thank you for popping in and please also take time to call in at the Allsorts Challenge blog and have a peep at the other design team members ideas on this weeks Challenge.
 
Thankyou for taking the time to pop and see me and please leave a quick comment if you have time.
Enjoy a lovely weekend,
Bye for now
Jo xx
