Morning Peeps another new challenge at Allsorts where I am your host and my chosen theme is 'Anything Goes with the option of Autumn'. We have two prizes this week, the lovely Lavinia Spotty Toadstools and a Tim Holtz pennant die.
Can I also give a plug for a pretty new challenge called River of Creativity, aimed at all type of craft, not just card making. We are trying hard to get the challenge established which was started by Zoe and we would love to see you there. Our theme this month is Wildlife and the challenge is aimed at all types of craft, so how about scrapbook layouts using wildlife photos or maybe a decorated gift bag incorporating animals, stitched or knitted items with animal prints, so many possibilities. My Allsorts piece this week fits into the theme rather well although it wasn't planned that way.
I bought several stamps from the most recent Lavinia release and have been playing with them in-between creating TV samples, Bumble Lodge is most definitely a firm favourite already and here I have coupled it up with one the the Hares, Toadstools and lots of worker stamps. I also stamped a matching envie. My daughter came in as I was adding the finishing touches and said she thought Lavinia made Fairy stamps, when I answered they did she asked where were whey then......in the Fairy house of course!
Going off piste from crafting I was trying to explain to a friend the other day my current nail design so a photo seemed easiest, the idea wasn't Halloween but I guess they do have a hint of that. I am fortunate to have long strong nails and have them done every couple of weeks (apart from a year plus interval during COVID) yesterday was my nail day so this is the new design.
And a sneak peek of what I have on my post tomorrow over at the Chocolate Baroque blog here using Chrysanthemum Blueprint although not really a sneak peek as it was on The Craft Store earlier this month.
Happy weekend all and I hope you will find time to join in both of the challenges.
