I'm back! My sincere apologies for my absence from the blog. I have been having treatment at hospital over the last 3 weeks and unfortunately it has been a little bit more than I was expecting and there was a lot of R and R to be had in between each treatment. Wednesday was my last treatment and now we wait to see if it has been successful.
I have missed doing the blog. I am sorry that I couldn't start my Christmas inspiration with a post every day in September but as mentioned things didn't quite go to plan.
I am starting this now on Monday 22nd and will post a Christmas project everyday for a month and hope that this inspires you to crack on with your projects.
I will be giving away some blog candy so please leave a comment to be in with a chance to win some stash!
Anyhow to today's job in hand - its Saturday so it is the Allsorts Challenge. Thankyou to the girls on the team for being so patient and allowing me time off.
Today the Team have been asked by our lovely Teamie Wendy to
"Use a film title as inspiration"
and I have chosen
"The Battle of Britain"
1969 British World War 2 film starring Micheal Cain, Lawrence Olivia, Trevor Howard,
Kenneth Moore and Ian Mc Shane
We are very lucky in Coningsby as we have the Battle of Britain Memorial flight stationed at the RAF base. At the moment we also have the Canadian Lancaster (Vera) over here on a visit so we have seen some amazing flying displays lately. You have perhaps seen them around your area as they have also been touring the country.
The base card is made from Kraft card and I have used a topper with the Spitfire on. The paper with the British map was from a paperpack from DCWV. The poppies were from Sheena Douglass paint fusion illustrations which I thought fitted the project nicely. A few metal embellishments finished this off.
I would love to hear what you think to my project and let me know if you have been a lucky one to view the Memorial Flight too.
Today at the shop we have the fabulously talented Kathryn Sturrock demonstrating skills using clays and moulds. I am really looking forward to it as I so admire her work and need to have a go at it!!
Please don't forget to pop in on Monday and each day for the month to check out my Christmas Inspiration. This time it will be there I promise!!!
Thankyou again for your patience and please comment if you have time.
Pop over to the Allsorts Challenge see what my other team members have done with this title - they are really lovely designs as usual.
Enjoy a fabulous weekend,
Bye for now
