How are you all? Have you enjoyed a lovely week with all this sunshine and of course the school holidays are well on the way - its great to see all of the children enjoying time out and especially with the sun shining.
This week has been particularly busy for us at the shop as it is our 1st Anniversary at the Tattershall shop today and we are celebrating by having the lovely Sheena Douglass to demonstrate.
She is a very dear friend of Let's Create and never fails to amaze us when she comes over to demonstrate.
We have been getting all of the latest crafty stash in the shop - it is very difficult being a crafter and the owner! you really need to get your hands on everything that is new but this, of course, can't be done!!
To celebrate our first, very successful, year in the Tattershall shop I would like to give away some Blog Candy and have decided that with our fabulous friend Sheena visiting it would only be fitting to give away a set of her gorgeous new Christmas designs. The lucky winner will be able to choice from a selection that we have got in for the demonstration tomorrow.
All that I am asking you to do is leave a comment on this weeks design and then next Saturday I will ask Random org to choice a winner.
This week at Allsorts we have been asked by our lovely Tracey to design something that shows everyone what our favourite things are.
This card really shows several of my favourite crafting items:
Colour, inks, stamping, embossing and guilding wax
The stamps are from Sheena (a coincidence I might add!) and the embossing folder is from her Indian designs.
The flowers have been stamped and embossed onto heat resistant acetate and then coloured on the back using fine glitter and dries clear glue.
The pearls are from pearl drops from Pinflair.
I love using colour and inks in my work - but I am sure you know me so well by now!
Please pop over to the Allsorts Challenge blog to check out the other girls favourite things - as usual there is some gorgeous work.
The sponsor for this week is Penny Black and we all know how fabulous these stamps are.
I must dash now as it is going to be a very busy day, I need to get the kettle on ready for our lovely visitors and put all of our lovely cake out! I will pop some photographs on here next week so that you can see the fun that we had.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that is a customer of Let's Create - you are the ones that have made our little palace so successful and I hope that we can bring many more Anniversary weekends to you. We really appreciate your support.
If you are in the area please pop in everyone is welcome and you will learn so much from the very talented Sheena.
Thankyou as ever for popping by and don't forget to leave a comment for a chance of grabbing a lovely stamp set!
Bye for now
