Week - My Favourite Things

Good Morning Everyone!

Well I have woken up to glorious sunshine I hope that you have too! A fabulous weekend ahead the weather man just said!  
I hope that you have all been enjoying Wimbledon - come on Murray lets have a win this year!
I will be at Inspirations in Preston tomorrow when the final is going on so if you pop in to see the Christmas Event make sure you know what the score is and let me know!!
It has been a good week for the family too as Dad came out of hospital and is finally home and Mum is chief Nurse and he is doing well.  He has a long journey to get back on track but I am sure that he will make sure that happens.  Thank you to everyone for all your good wishes whilst Dad has been in hospital.

On to todays task of the morning.  It is Saturday again and that means a fabulous Challenge from Allsorts and this week we have a great one from our lovely Brenda and it is ........

Our Favourite Things
Brenda would like to see a project showing us what your favourite crafting goodies are I think it is going to be a popular week!

This is an example of several of my favourite crafting goodies ~

As you will see this is a mini canvas using lots of crafting goodies that I love to use - vintage ink, guilding flakes, moulds, stamps and paint.  A collective mix of everything that gets down and dirty!
This is a canvas that I recently took on a Crafty Notions show when I had all of these gorgeous goodies to use and show you all.
The moulds are a brilliant product to use with Crafty Notions Jewelled enamels and topped with gleams to really bring out the patterns on the flowers.  The stamped sentiment that I have used is from a Studion 490 set.

Please pop over to the Allsorts Challenge blog and have a look at all of the Teams favourite things that they love to use when they are making all of their stunning projects.

Thank you also to our sponsors this week who are DigiStamp Boutique.

I hope that you enjoy a weekend of glorious sunshine and tennis!! 
Have a go at this weeks challenge we love to see what you all create and we are really interested to see what your favourite crafty things are.

Thankyou for popping in and please leave a comment if your like my project this week.
Take care and bye for now
