Allsorts Challenge 329

Hope you are all having a good weekend, a lovely bright morning here but a definate autumn nip and dampness in the air. Thank you for all your kind wishes with my op - it went well and l am on the road to recovery.

Onto the new challenge at Allsorts - this week Tracy Mouse is the host and she would like to see
I decided to go for sparkly snowflakes, l used dutch doobadoo paste over my snowflake stencil and covered it with glamour dust while still wet, the centre to the die cut snowflake has a sparkly dome gem, the ribbon also has a thread of silver sparkle running through it too. It is sometimes difficult to photo sparkle so l just hope you can imagine how sparkly it is irl.

This week we have a lovely prize - two tickets to the Stitching, Sewing and Hobbycrafts Show at The NEC

Pop over to the challenge here for all the details and check out what my lovely teamies have created too x Susan x
