Week 289 - White Christmas

Hello Everyone,

Well, the big day is getting closer and everyone is so busy getting all prepared.  
I have had a busy week with Create and Craft and the last 2 workshops of the year at the shop.
This week I am also hosting the Allsorts Challenge and I have chosen the title .........................

and the way that the weather is going I think it might even happen this year!

This is the project that I have made which fits the title ~

I have used a real mix of dies on this design including~ 
Tattered Lace corners - the free die from issue 12 of their magazine,
and the bow is also one from the Tattered Lace range.
The poinsettia is one of my very favourite dies from Tim Holtz and the shadow box frame that the design has been made from is from Tonic!
I have used a mixture of pearl cardstock and glitter card.
Some pearls from Hobby House finish everything off a treat.

I hope that you like it and it inspires you to have a go at the Challenge this week.
Please pop over to the Allsorts Challenge blog to have a look at the other team members lovely projects.
Thankyou to our sponsors Flonz Craft and Scrappers Delight.
This week we have a Christmas meal get-together with some of our lovely shop friends and our evening and daytime Christmas get-togethers at the shop.  This has become quite a tradition and Mark and I love to host these to say thankyou to all of our customers and friends.

I have also got 2 shows on Tuesday demonstrating the Tattered Lace interchangeable embossing folders at 10am and 1pm on C and C.
Looks like a busy one ahead!! 
Thankyou for taking the time to read the blog and as always I would love to see comments from you if you have a few minutes to spare.
Oh nearly forgot we are going to see John Bishop in Nottingham tonight so I will let you know all about this next week too! 
Phew - I think that's it,
Have a lovely week and bye for now
