Allsorts Challenge...Week 40

Morning a fab day yesterday with the nicest guy on the planet....such a shame that they constantly hurried him along but he took it all with good humour and it's a long time since I've sat still for so long.   Been a bit of a naughty girl I'm afraid.......well how could I resist Tim....his wonderful smile and all his fabulous new products....I'll be eagerly waiting my ever patient postie arriving with the goodies and.... after my lazy telly watching day yesterday I have to get stuck into some serious crafting but before I do.....time to share a card I made for the challenge over at Allsorts this week from my lovely Funky Hand teamie ....the very talented Jules......


Papers: K&Co Hopscotch
Image: Hero Arts: CL 322...Artistic Borders
CL386...Stencil Art
Sentiment: Hero Arts: CL183 Cute Letters
Tags: Quickutz Die
Pearls and ribbon from stash

and I seem to be in a "real simples" mode at the moment ....I know it's says TAG but thought I would play safe and go for 3 for the price of one.... using some of my favourite K&Co papers....Hopscotch....I have had this kit for years and sadly am only left with bits and pieces.
Well it's going to be a nose to the grindstone kinda day and Mr Postie has just delivered a parcel with some gorgeous new Penny Blacks but I need to put them where I can't see them until the work stuff is done and dusted....and the temptation just never ends...Hero Arts brand new Designs On Wood stamps have just been released.....oh my giddy aunt....the bank manager ain't going to be a happy that the credit card has gone into could be bread and water for the next few weeks.
Catch up with you all tomorrow for some fandabbidosie news........Hugs Kath xxxxx

Oooh Kath this is just beautiful - I've been playing with one of my new PB stamps this morning after my 'day off' yesterday watching QVC. It's awful the way they rush things along - even if a product has sold out they should still give it some air time so we can all see how it works. Poor Tim!

Love Lynda xxx

Hi Kath

Thought of you loads yesterday and wondered how much you were spending!!! I was at work so recorded quite a bit and watched some of it last night .. still lots to look at and some to "re-look" at.

I can't believe they stuck a glittery sticker on Mr H's gorgeous shirt!!! Disgusting!!

Anyways .. .. round to the reason for my visit .. your Allsorts Challenge entry. A beautiful card as always. Love your colour choices and "three tags!!"

Actually this card isn't that simple Kath. If you want to see a simple one then catch mine of today!!! So simple it was almost an embarrassment to post.

Thank you for playing along with my challenge at Allsorts this week.

Love Jules xx

Kat said...

Another gorgeous card Kath. Love your idea of simple.
Know what you mean about poor Tim. Was watching last night after work and my daughter said "does he always just do the same demo?" So I told her that they probably wouldn't let him do anything!! The real end was that glittery thing she stuck on him - yuk.
By the way yesterday I ordered some of Tim's stamps and journaling and adage tickets from Artist Trading Post and they came today. Stamps were cheaper there too!
