Flower Power and Crafting Live tickets to give away



Morning Peeps, it's Saturday so that means it's time for our new challenge at Allsorts and this week Tracy has chosen the them of 'Flower Power', one I think we all enjoy. Our sponsor is Tattered Lace and there are three prizes to be won. 

It's been a bit of an off  week here, too hot to craft, plus I've not felt too good and will be pleased to get my next surgery over and done with. And we have one very poorly Holly. When a lab doesn't eat you know something is wrong, a trip to the vet, bloods and scans and a diagnosis of a Pyometra and Panreatitis. She had a big operation on Tuesday and seems to be doing OK and is now eating again, but lost a whopping 1.1kg in that short time. Poop baby, so much to go wrong when she is only four.

Back to craft and I have some tickets to give away to Crafting Live in Doncaster on 15th/16th July. I realise distance means not everyone can get there but it you can and would like tickets please leave me a comment on this post, if there are several of you I will draw a name and be in touch.


The card above is one of my samples for a recent Create and Craft TV show featuring a new release from TL's Fleurs Flower Forming range. The flowers were made from card coloured with Dylusions and Mica Spray and then cut and formed using the Fleurs system. The DP is from stash although I have no idea of the make, the sentiment is Rate Earth and I tucked some TL Ivy around the flowers.

Happy weekend all and do pop over to the challenge blog to see all the lovely flowers on display from my teamies.

Hello Brenda
Sorry to hear about your health and that of your dog. I, too having been feeling under the weather this week but am on the mend now especially since the temperature has dropped about 10 degrees. I haven't been crafting for what feels like ages but I did manage some colouring yesterday so I am definitely on the mend.
Your card is beautiful as always, the flowers are amazing and the sentiment is perfect.
Take care
Lesley
