Another Free & Easy Allsorts Week

 Good morning. WOW were did last week disappear in a puff of smoke to? Thank you to everyone that joined in with us at Allsorts - we had some gorgeous Free & Easy projects and I know that I personally came away with bucket loads of inspiration. I hope that I didn't miss out visiting everyone - even if it was a bit painful at times for my hand - which is improving on a daily basis by the way and I am working on being able to have full functionalilty by the end of this week - can't wait to have the stitches out though and I'm sure that will help loads too.
Anyway onto this week and we are still being
but we do have some new DT inspiration and a new sponsor

and another fab prize up for grabs:
 Here's what I decided to make this week:
 And here's what I used:
I started by covering a tag with some Tim Holtz Tissue Tape and then inked it with Faded Jeans Distress Ink
The mini Rosesare form Wild Orchid Crafts.
The punched butterflies are Martha Stewart and a few adhesive gems added to the bodies.
Sentiment from Creative Expressions - stamped and heat embossed with clear EP and then die cut using Spellbinders Labels 20 - I then matt and layed this onto co-ordinating cardstock using the faux nestie technique as I only wanted a narrow border.
You can see that I have used my favourite new Spellbinder border - from the Doily Accents set.
The spotty backing card was created by running co-ordinating cardstock through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions small polka dot mask and then lightly sanded to bring out the dots.
Challenges I would like to enter:
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Aud Sentiments - Must include a sentiment with at least 2 words
Everybody Art - Use Shapes
Divas by Design - Die Cuts & Punches
Flutterby Wednesday - Open Theme (must include Buttefly, Fairy or Angel)
Truly Scrumptious - Things with Wings
Stamp Insanity - Anything Goes
Creative Craft Challenge - Pretty Blossoms

Before I go I just wanted to share some exciting news - well it's exciting for us anyway lol!!!
We received an invitation to Jack's school Celebration of Achievement Gala Event because Jack has won an award at school - we don't know what for and they won't tell us as they want to keep it a surprise - how exciting is that???  So watch this space - event takes place Monday 18 July - a black tie do - so will have to go shopping no doubt for a fancy frock :-)

Thanks for popping by.
Have a wonderful day.
