A Little Bit Crafty-Anything Goes!

Good morning everyone! I am here with a new challenge for my new DT-A Little Bit Crafty! I was honoured to be asked by Paula to join her team, because she is one of my oldest friends in the crafting world and I have a lot of respect for her. Shes picked a wonderful team and its a pleasure to join them all :-) Our first challenge is 'Anything Goes'.
I used some of my favourite ranges at the moment, the wonderful All Sewn Up range by Sarah Hurley found here which perfectly compliments the Knit and Sew range at Crafty Ribbons found here. I printed my Sarah Hurley papers and hexagons onto canvas as this really makes a lovely texture and perfectly compliments the material texture you would expect with a sewing theme. I arranged my Hexagons and arranged little snippets of sentiment ribbon which I set with clear nail varnish to prevent fraying. I then added complimenting buttons to finish.
We are sponsored this month by the following companies:

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
The Paper Shelter: Anything Goes
Whimsy Inspires: Stitching Real or Faux
Timeless Tuesday: Grab some Thread!
Challenges 4 Everybody: Anything Goes
PanPastel UK: Anything Goes
Creative Corner Challenges: Anything Goes
