Cocktails in Sicily



Morning Peeps, a scheduled post as we have been away on holiday for the past few days and all things going to plan, after a few days in Italy our Celebrity ship should have sailed through the Tyrrhenian Sea to Cagliari in Sardinia.

Then last evening through the Straights of Messia and as it would have been dusk the flames rising from Stromboli may have been visible. Then this morning we should be berthed in Sicily before sailing into the Ionian Sea to our nest port of call..............check back tomorrow to see where that is ! It's a few years since we last visited Sicily but I do remember sipping delectable cocktails along with local nibbles so will be seeking out those bars again..................I can always be relied upon to remember the important things !

So onto our new challenge at Allsorts and this week Helene would like us to focus on sentiments with the theme 'Sentiment in Focus'. Our sponsor this weeks is Digistamp Boutique.

This one was a bit of indulgence between working on DT and TV samples. I cute Timmy's Vintage Cabinet card three times and then used Oxide inks to build up the background. Next came stamping using the beautiful face from Stampers Anonymous, the focal sentiment is from Inkylicious and Butterfly from Chocolate Baroque. A bit of random stenciling and then brads and seam binding to tie it all together.

Happy weekend all.
