Week 273 - Warm Summery Colours

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

Well it has finally arrived - our week away on holiday! today we fly off to Rhodes and we are both so ready for a few days of R and R! a little sunshine would be lovely too.  I am in the throws of packing so this wont be a mega long post!
The week understandably has been a bit hectic trying to fit everything in and get all my work caught up so I wont have too much to get on with straight off the plane! We have had a couple a lovely workshops and these have been using the Joy floral stamps and I have chosen one of the projects to show you as it is perfect for this weeks Challenge ~
Warm Summery Colours

The Joy stamps are clear and very easy to use.  The print is excellent.  The whole design is in one with the gorgeous Lilly and the script in the background so we decoupaged the Lily and coloured it with Distress Pens, Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade.
You cant see the envelope too well but the bottom half of the design has been made using the WR Memory Keepers Envelope maker which is such a great tool and I would highly recommend it - so easy to use.
A flourish and a tag with a sentiment finished off a really lovely but quick project.

The Design Team have made some gorgeous samples this week, as usual, and if you pop over to the Allsorts Blog you can get some more inspiration.
We also have 2 fabulous sponsors this week:


so a massive thankyou to both of these for their support.
Must dash now, I will post next week but I m afraid that I wont be able to do any commenting as I wont be taking the lap top! 
Have a lovely week and enjoy the Bank |Holiday whatever you are planning.
Bye for now
Jo xx
