 Hi Crafters,

We are back this week for a new challenge at Allsorts.

We'd like to see SPOTS & STRIPES on your projects and I have used these fun Kanban die cuts and pretty patterned background for my card. I added some kitchen themed die cuts of my own and used a Lisa Horton scalloped frame die. One of my favourite colour combos are blue and brown so I coordinated my gems and ribbon embellishments to match the image.

Christmas Card Club Challenge #19 - Christmas Trees

 Hi Crafters,

Zoe would like to see Christmas Trees on our cards this week.

So hitting the ground running after my week away I'm sharing these little 4 x 4 cards that I made for this challenge at the Christmas Card Club.

I also had lots of post on the doormat when I returned, I had been waiting for some shaker dies to arrive and so I couldn't resist having a play with one of them. I made a shaker tree ornament using some glitter foam and these cute sprinkles that also arrived at the same time. As this one was a tree shape I thought I'd share it here too.

Take a look at the other ladies creations in the group, their blog links are in my sidebar under the CCC tab.

Have a great Sunday.

Happy Birthday Mum!

 Hi Crafters,

This card was made for my Mum's Birthday.

She is 91 years young today!

...and as you can see her favourite colour is blue so I thought that this blue Hydrangea Charisma and die set from Tattered Lace would be prefect for her card. I also used some other dies in the Tattered Lace Collection - Lovers of Lace Heart Frame, Hemstitch Square, Leaving a Trail and Oh So Floral dies.

I'm so lucky to still have my mum with us and in fine fettle too, I will be going to see her later today, we always have a lovely chat and put the world to rights along the way.

Challenges I'd like to enter:

C.R.A.F.T. challenge - #649 Shabby Chic

As You Like It - Favourite Card Base Shape and Why ( I love to use square card bases as these give me so much more space to add details and elements to my design)

That's all from me today, I'll see you tomorrow for my Allsorts DT inspiration.
