New Challenge over at Oldie But A Goodie

Morning all

Firstly thank you for all your well wishes whilst my back has been so bad that I have been laid up.  I am finally on the mend thank goodness and although I have to take it easy can at least now start to do some crafting YIPEEEEEEE.

Well today is a new day over at Oldie But A Goodie and our challenge this fortnight was chosen by little old me and the theme is Bunting, don't forget your stash or whatever has to be at least six months old.  so without further ado here is my card

I even tried my hand at frantage got most of it over me of course but when we went out for the evening I looked lovely with all my sparkle in my hair, over my dress and on my face lol.

I had a lovely day over at Rachel's on Saturday afternoon started a couple of cards but not finished yet,  and then yesterday I supervised whilst Alan did the weeding in the garden will have to take some photo's whilst it's looking pretty.

I have quite a bit to do over the next few days, candles to price up and soap to box, inserts into cards, cards to make not only for my DT work but have been asked to do some evening wedding invitations around 10 -20 of them.  I also need to make three more batches of soap up as I was checking the one's out I had already made and a couple of them are not good enough to sell so I may do a draw and instead of craft stuff send out soap what do you think.

Why not pop along to OBAG and check out the rest of the team's work which is wonderful.  You never know you might just win a prize.

Love Alison

  10. Super card Alison and I love the image and design. Great to see you using the frantage - mine has never been opened, got it as Christmas and when I think of using it I always think it may spoil the card, so never do! Clearly you know how to use it as it's added a lovely sparkle, to perhaps more than it should have! Super challenge, Jx
