Allsorts Challenge....Week 51

Morning folks.....had to make a quick birthday card....oh yes everyone else gets their cards in plenty of time but when it comes to my own personal ones....it's always a last minute job....so a great opportunity to kill two birds with one stone and take part in the challenge this week over at Allsorts which is a fab sketch from my lovely bloggy bud and fellow Scot Amanda....and like me Amanda doesn't do the old fancy graphic designer sketchy thingy....nothing wrong with a hand drawn sketch girl....lovingly created by your own fair hand.
And a chance to play with my new Dogwood stamp from Hero Arts...I have been hankering after this stamp for ages and at long last it's taken up residence at the cubbyhole.

Hero Arts: CG 118- Stripes Background
CG 139 Cling Dots
S5362 - Dogwood
Sentiment: HOTP
Ribbon: American Crafts
Pearls: Hobby House
Fiskars: Threading Water Punch

It's perfect crafting weather here....cold with frequent snow flurries....yes you have read that correctly but it's melting as soon as it hits the ground....we are all cosy comfy warm in the cubbyhole and busy busy getting the rest of the stamp filing up to date....and then it's onto the samples for an up and coming demo day....yes be warned...this mad crafter is coming to a crafty shop near you.....well that is if you live in the North East of Scotland......place....date and time to be advised.    So it's kettle on and get cracking.
Catch up with you all tomorrow......and I wonder what will be on my workdesk tomorrow morning.
Hugs Kath xxx
Edited to add: just got back from our morning stroll and would you believe....the clouds have cleared....the sky is blue and it's going to be a lovely day....well for the next 5 minutes anyway

These flowers are just gorgeous Kath. Really lovely in pink.

Didn't stay nice long did it? By the afternoon it was really vile here. I would walk quite smartly with the dogs but Catriona's Lab needs to be on a lead and she can't half sniff lol!
