Week 92 at Allsorts

Morning all and welcome to week 92 at Allsorts. This week the gorgeous Emma wants to see hand made flowers :o) I have used this gorgeous image by Christine Dark coloured with a mixture of Promarkers and Aquamarkers. The paper is Funky Hand Craft the Year Away cd. The flowers were coloured with the aquamarkers. This card went to my eldest (step) grand daughter Abigail who was 17 earlier this month. how how how can she be that old?? When I met my hubby she was only 9 months old lol
I am also entering this card into the Stamp Something challenge ~ something with flowers
We have a bumper sponsor week this week, Crafty Ribbons are offering some lush easter ribbons, Christine Dark is offering 6 images and Letraset are offering a set of Aquamarkers. So what are you waiting for get your green fingers busy and grow some flowers lol

Allsorts week 91

Morning all and here is Saturday again......where are the weeks going? LOL This week at Allsorts Fleur has set an "Inspired by Nature" challenge. Now I don't have much in the way of floral or nature-y stamps but then I remembered this Sugar Nellie stamp, lots of flowers so thought it would fit :o) The ribbon is from crafty ribbons, paper is from the land of no idea and pearls are from stash. The swirly corner stamp is unbranded and it came to me in a box of stash from a lady in my church.
I hope you will join in with our nature theme this week. We are sponsored by Stitchy Bear Stamps and Sketching Stamper Digi Stamps.

Had a wee go at making a nappy cake

I have heard of these and seen them online so I decided to have a wee go for my friend Lorraine who had a gorgeous wee pink bundle on Saturday :o) In the centre is baby shampoo and baby bath, surrounded by rolled up nappies. Pink layer is a blanket I knitted, wee sponge on the top with a wee pair of bootees. Have to admit I was quite pleased with it :o)
