It's Allsorts right enough

Morning folks....another beautiful morning here in the far north and it's definitely an Allsorts kinda of a day..I know it's a bit coo's tail....but I had to join in the birthday celebrations this week over at Allsorts....one of my favourite challenges....happy birthday girls and here's to many more years of fab challenges...just disappointed I didn't get time to join in the fun of the blog hop.



Hero Arts Wild Flower Garden
Artistic Grasses
Paper Tape Measure & Sentiment Strip from East of India
Sewing background stamp....don't know who makes it
Tim Holtz Alterations...Tattered Florals
Claudine Hellmuth Sticky Back Canvas
Sentiment: Penny Black....Hugs
Pearls...Hobby House
Buttons from stash

I have fallen deeply in love with these tape measure and sentiment strips and how sad when you feel the need to wax lyrical about string....but it too is fabulous all from a company called East of India available at John Lewis....OK their stuff is a tad expensive but such good quality and just my style

And just time for a little sneaky peek before we dash off for our morning stroll

I know that I promised I would take some pics of the new boudoir....but the battery died on my camera yesterday and by the time I charged it up the daylight had gone....so will get them done and post on Sunday.....catch up with you all tomorrow for another fun challenge over at Penny Black Saturday.  Have a great day whatever you are doing.
Hugs Kath xxx

Kath- Where did you get the tape measure. I would love to get some of that-was it a stamp or paper product. If you could pass that information on I would really appreciate it. I love this card. Kristy

Hey Kath, I love the string and the measureing tape too. I haven't found any here yet. Do you know if that company ships to the states?
Oh and a question. What do you mean when you say it's a bit coo's tail? I have several friends from Scotland, and I've hear lot's of expressions. But I've not heard that one! lol I love your card, and would love to have some of those goodies too. Thanks for sharing.

This is amazing Kath. I always look forward to seeing what new ideas you come up with. That sneaky peek looks very colourful!

It was a lovely morning. Pity the rain came on in the afternoon. I had to tip the water out of my washing basket when I came home from work!!
