Week 319 - Allsorts Challenge - Strawberries and Cream

Hello my fellow crafters,

Thankyou for joining me for another Saturday morning blog post and another week has flown by but how lovely has that sunshine been.
For all of you Wimbledon  lovers I hope that you have been enjoying it and what a shame that Andy Murray has been knocked out :(  bring on next year!
Anyway! lets get on with the job in hand today and  the team have been asked to make a project using the title -
Strawberries and Cream
We could have either chosen to use the colours or the image and this is what I have chosen to do -

So I went with the image of the gorgeous summer fruit and cream and this is a very pretty topper from a set from the Hobby House. The topper already comes die cut in that lovely shape.  The background has been made using a Create a Card die from Crafters Companion.  The bunting has been made using one of my favourite dies from Joanna Sheen's Signature range - I have cut them in the pink and the blue and then layered both strings with a lime green which I have picked out of the background card.
The team at Allsorts have done a lovely job this week showing off all of their different projects so please pop over to the blog. We have 2 very generous sponsors this week so why not post a design and be in with a chance to win.
All of these dies and the Hobby| House toppers, as well as many other Hobby House products that we love are available on our Let's Create website and all orders over £10 are all free p and P!
I hope that you all enjoy a lovely weekend and please find a couple of minutes to leave me a comment if you like the project today.
Thankyou for popping in and hope to see you again next Saturday.
Bye for now

  1. Dare I say good enough to east Jo, but it is so very pretty and delicate.

    Like you I was disappointed to see Andy go out especially in three straight sets, imagine he must be gutted.

  6. good enough to eat - and being made from card it's gluten free, just right for me! Like all your examples it is going to be hard to beat but I'm sure your loyal gang will have a go. love seeing all the ideas they come up with. see you soon.
