Allsorts Challenge 442

It is Saturday again and that can only mean the start of the new challenge over at Allsorts.  This week my lovely teamie Kath is the host and she has chosen
Check out what my lovely teamies have to share with you here along with all the challenge details. This theme is right up my street as l love all things sparkly. I bought these lovely dies a while back and had a play making a few different ones and l think it is time to get them out for another play. Not sure if all the sparkle is showing here as sometimes it is difficult to capture on camera.

Dies Poinsettia Sweet dixie, 
Wreath & Berries Joy Crafts
Structure paste, glamour dust
Embossing enamel
Sentiment Inkylicious

We have a lovely collection for one lucky winner from Baker Ross

And a die from Tattered Lace

This has been one of those weeks where l have blinked and it has gone - you know the ones - you have been busy not having a minute to yourself but but seem to have got much done lol.
My husband got chatting to a lady a few months ago in B&Q he told her we had created a large border and where in the process of filling it and she kindly said she would have lots of free plants in autumn when dividing off he went on thursday and came back with the car packed full. You would have all laughed seen us planting them on thursday night by torchlight then finishing off yesterday. How kind and generous of a complete stranger to give us all those plants, her husband even dug them out for us. Stunning border pictures to follow sometime next summer !

Have a good weekend whatever you are up too and hope to see you over on the challenge x Susan x

Not often you get "owt for nowt" these days, to quote the Yorkshire expression.
