Allsorts Week 296 - Flower Power

Hi All

Sorry for the late post, i forgot to schedule it and was on the road at 7am this morning to attend a workshop, had an awful drive with the snow which seemed to disappear by this evening!

This week our lovely Wendy is hosting and wants to see all things floral.

As you know I love poppies, this time I used a free digi which was paperpieced and made a background with a tattered lace border, I think the background papers were a free set as well.....

We have two great sponsors for this one.

Allsorts Week 294 - Spring Flowers


This week Susan is hosting us with the theme "Spring Flowers"

I've used a topper sheet and embellishment sheet from Katy Sue Designs which was one of those, that looks pretty in the sale pile purchases at the NEC, have to say they are designed flower soft but look quite nice without!

Our sponsors:

A Passion for Stamps offers a wide range of images designed by Ruth Hamilton. As the name of her store and blog suggests Ruth has a particular love of flowers and many of her designs can also be purchased as rubber stamps, punches and dies all sold under the Tonic Studios brand name.

Happy Saturday
