Apron inspired challenge.

All the new Hostesses have been announced now and after seeing all the pretty new aprons  the lovely Sarah has set the perfect challenge, to make a card using all the new colours. Linda (Purple) Heather (Green) Anita (Hot Pink) Sharon (Aqua) and me(Pink)  I was lucky enough to receive my prize package from Hero Arts this week for my Fab5 win in November.(I waited for the new catalogue to come out)
This included two of the new flower stamps S5482 Ruffled flower and CL495 Blossom Art,  I have been playing with them and making up layered flowers, so these were perfect for this challenge.  I have glued seed beads to the flower centers with Glossy Accents.

I spent a really enjoyable day yesterday at a patchwork class, its the first time I have tried patchwork and it was fun.  The class was all about making a bag, I haven't quite finished it yet but will post a photograph when I have.

Hope you are having a fun weekend and I just want to say Thank you for all the lovely comments, Flickr mails and emails I have received over the past few days, I really appreciate it.
