Allsorts Challenge....48

Morning folks.....winter has returned to this neck of the woods with a vengeance...blimey it's arctic out there which means it's back to the Michelin Man gear once again for our morning strolls....and here was me thinking it was time to look out the summer tops and shorts.....not yet I fear...don't do the goosepimply arms and legs thing......but change of plan today.....rush last minute job to it's cut to the chase time.
The challenge this week over at Allsorts is.....


and I am still in Sticky Back Canvas....Hero Arts and Sir Timmy mode

Background stamped with a new stamp from Simply Create...but there is no name on it
and then coloured with Brushed Corduroy
my favourite Hero Arts flowers from Artistic Borders inked with Faded Jeans and overstamped with
Tiny Jubilee Dots and Stripes Background...leaves coloured with Peeled Paint
Sentiment...Hero Arts....Thinking of You coloured with Mustard Seed
finished off with Basic Grey Buttons and twine
and of course.....a little bit of faux stitching

Why is it that when you have your week all planned out and are thinking of having a little bit of me time.....something always turns up to send the plans into freefall.   I have material lists and instructions to do today for 7 cards which will be appearing as projects on the FISKARS website real soon.....using the samples I made for the SECC and don't get me wrong....I was chuffed to be asked....BUT and yes it's a big BUT....this is my least favourite job...takes forever.....flicking through catalogues for Products Numbers and then the step by step instructions......well it won't get done if I am sitting here talking about to make myself a nice cup of coffee and get cracking.....hopefully I will catch up with you all tomorrow.
Oops nearly forgot....have you noticed I have a new gizmo up on the top right hand corner....
IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION....if you do have a question you want to ask about anything you see on here.....just click and ask away and I will answer as soon as I can.....lots of you either ask questions on your comments or send e-mails and sometimes I have missed thought this was a better idea.....go on try it out.....who's going to be first with a question...and I do believe that "His Nibs" may want to join in the fun ain't that a show without the big furry boy.

  10. Kath . . . I can't seem to email you so I've used your question box . . . just to confirm that Fae would love you to feature her Penny Black flap card tomorrow. (It is difficult for Fae to get online, that's why I'm the one letting you know!!!)

  19. This is stunning Kath as usual. You always have such great ideas.

    I agree about the weather. Brrrr yesterday morning after I had been out with the dog I had to go and look out my vest again lol!!

    When you say that Buddy might need to join in I take it that Retrievers are as nosy as Labradors. As if I need to ask that.
