Allsorts - Metal or Charms

Hello,
my turn to host the challenge over at Allsorts and I want you to use charms or actual metal on your creations.
I made a tag, using an embossing folder on aluminium tape, blackening it with black acrylic paint. Then some cog wheel dies, smudged with gold wax and some metal wire that I tied around the tag. Taking pictures of shiny things really is a drag...

We are sponsored this week by Tattered Lace, they are giving not one but two lucky winners a die each so dig out your metal bits and get crafting.

Allsorts - anything goes

Hi,
this week the challenge at Allsorts is Anything goes. Nice to have those "let's do whatever"-kinda weeks :)
I made a card with a new text die, once again a die with a stitched edge (I know, I have a tendency to almost wear new things out when I get them) and a gorgeous baby hands stamp I got for my birthday.

Allsorts - Hearts and/or Flowers

Hi,
this week the challenge at Allsorts is Hearts and/or Flowers. Shouldn't be too much of a struggle I suppose :)
At least it wasn't for me, I made some gift boxes in blue and gold, a favourite layout that works for all sorts of occasions.

Allsorts - paper piecing

Hi,
this week the challenge at Allsorts is Paper piecing. I made a gift tag using a Lili of the Valley stamp and the colour scheme pink and brown. I just adore my new dies with the stitched edge and I have ordered some more in other shapes :)

Now I'm off to a chorus weekend, two whole days singing and dancing with my wonderful chorus friends in Snowflake singers.
