Allsorts - Flower Power

It is time for another challenge at Allsorts but before that, let me just share with you the picture of my grandson, born this Tuesday, who has totally stolen my heart :).

So... Allsorts... the theme this week is Flower Power, easy enough :) I made a gift tag with lace and roses. The bells chime when you move the card, really pretty :).

Allsorts - Birthday boy

Morning,
we had our graduation at school this Wednesday so summer holiday has just begun. Not for me though, I'm in London writing the interim report for the Erasmus project our school is involved in. But there are worse places to spend a working weekend I think :). I know there has been a lot of turbulence there lately but we can't let crazy people scare us to stay at home, cause then they will have won! I love London and every chance I get, I will keep coming back there. And when I go home, it's to go to school for one more day - mainly to tidy up my desk - and then it's summer vacation until August 11th.

At Allsorts, our theme this week is Birthday boy, and I am - of course - in a baby mood (roughly two more weeks til I'm a proper granny) so I made a baby birthday card. Not for the chap we're waiting for, but for the little darling my nephew got last year. He's turning a whole year soon :) Wendy, who is hosting the challenge, stipulated that there has to be a stamped image so I used the lovely Hamish the Chef stamp on a plain background.

Allsorts - use two or more dies

This week at Allsorts the theme is: Use two or more dies. I used two circle dies with stitched edge and a die with baby clothes on a line, really cute.
Just wish I could hang out the washed clothes to dry in reality, since they smell fantastically when dried in the garden, but it's cold and grey and will most likely rain today, so not really a good idea.


We are sponsored with some really pretty dies from Marianne Dies so hurry over and join in!

Allsorts - Christmas in June

Time to start thinking about the Christmas cards, it'll be winter before we know it :) So this week at Allsorts the theme is Christmas in June, just to get you started :)
I made a gift tag with iridescent snowflakes and some tiny bells. Computer generated sentiment, I've added it at the bottom of the post if you want to use it for your own creations.
We have two sponsors - digistamp boutique and Tattered Lace, so two lucky winners this week.


Other challenges:
vilda stamps - Anything goes

Allsorts 8th birthday!

Morning all,
this week we are celebrating our 8th birthday at Allsorts. Wow, time flies! The theme is of course Happy Birthday and if you join in our celebration we have a real treat for you.

Our Birthday challenge is kindly sponsored by Tattered Lace who are offering a fabulous £50 store voucher for this week's winner, AND in addition there is a £5 voucher for every single entrant to spend at their Crafting store.

To use your £5 voucher you will need a code which can be found by vising each of the DT's personal blogs, collecting the nine letters/numbers and creating the unique code. It's a really simple one, I promise you, but if you get stuck just mail us. Your voucher will be valid from today until Saturday May 27th and is limited to one voucher per entrant, that means that even if you enter three times you will only receive one voucher.

Here's my birthday tag with metal corners and shiny ribbon as only decoration since the text stamp from Winnie and Walter is so gorgeous in itself. :)

I will also throw in a stamp set as an extra prize. All you have to do is comment on this post and I'll draw a winner next Saturday.



And the letter you need? It's A. Just remember that you need to unscramble the letters to form a word that most likely is very familiar to you, and there will be one number, put that last and your code will work just fine.

Allsorts - ring a ring o roses

This week at Allsorts the theme is Ring a ring o´ roses, you know that dear old childhood rhyme. So basically Brenda, who is hosting the challenge, wants to see roses on your creation. Easy enough right :)
I made an envelope shaker card using roses both as decoration and on the design paper. And put in a die cut ring just to be on the safe side :)
So looking forward to catching a glimpse of your projects cause what ever would we do without roses?

We have two gorgeous prizes, wish I could enter myself :)

Allsorts - Music


Today it's my turn to host the challenge at Allsorts and since I'm going away this weekend to compete in the Nordic Championships in barbershop I thought the theme Music would be fitting :)
I made a tag with musical notes on, and a snowflake behind the design paper since Snowflake singers is the name of my chorus. Just for good luck ;)
We have prizes for two winners this week, one from Digistamp boutique and one from Tattered Lace. 

And also: soon it's time for our Birthday party!
