ALLSORTS DT ~ Celebration of nations and some news

Morning, Cant believe we are already halfway through January,
Where did it go?
Finally got the insurance sorted for our car,
Hopefully pick up our new one next week,
That'll be nearly 8 weeks without a car for me.
Have been walking to school, so that's a good thing and have saved money by not going craft shopping!!!
I have been doing my main shop online, and this week Darren took me to Morrisons.
I was like a kid in a toy shop, it seems ages since I've been to a supermarket LOL!
xXx
This week at ALLSORTS my lovely friend Nicola has chosen....

CELEBRATION of  NATIONS

 This could mean a celebration of the forthcoming Olympics later this year, or you can celebrate your home country through your creations, ideally incorporating your national flag colours

I have chosen the colours of the United Jack
RED WHITE and BLUE

I have used:
Magnolia ~ Papers and Tilda as a nurse
Nestabilities ~ Labels 18 and butterflies
DooHickey ~ Swirl
Whimsey ~ Sentiments and dies
Marianne ~ English rose and leaves
Tim Holtz ~ DIs and doily die
Pearls and scrim from stash

I hope you can join us this week.
xXx
Now onto my news!


Back in September I was over the moon to be asked to join the
LOTV Challenge DT, Now we all know that saddly this recently closed down,
and like many others I was gutted.
But I was chuffed to bits when Lisa and Laila
asked me join their DT over at the
LOTV Ideas to Inspire blog
I can't begin to say how exciting this is for me.
I just LURVE their stamps.
So be on the look out as there's some exciting stuuf going on in the near future.

Thanks for looking
BIG
HUGZ
