Entering a challenge

Afternoon all

Sorry not been around again but have been a little busy not sure if I told you but my new sewing machine decided it didn't want to play any more and I had to send it back, informed the company that I didn't want that machine back that I wanted a new one as what was to say that it would not go wrong again it was obviously a bad batch for it to stop working after 3 months, but it has taken me nearly all week to get this sorted and they are now going to send a new one out next week hopefully, watch this space.

Well I am going to enter a challenge for the first time in ages and it is Creative Inspiration Challenge Blog
they have a sketch this week and the theme is anything goes so here is the sketch

and this is what I came up with, using flowers, paper and card from stash.  

I have also been commissioned to make two cards which I will get onto tomorrow.  On Saturday I have been invited to an auction of material, buttons etc so looking forward to that and I would like to get over to Rachel's as it's been ages since we got together and I am getting withdrawal symptoms.  

Am off just now will catch up with your wonderful creations later.  

Love Alison xx
