Allsorts meets Rudolph

Allsorts challenge Week 404
Rudolph Day February 2017

Good Morning, it is the lovely Helene's turn to host the challenge at Allsorts this week and she wants us to use metal or charms and it is also the start of the February Rudolph Day challenge and how lucky that my chosen images fit both challenges

Our sponsor this week at Allsorts is Tattered Lace with these lovely prizes


Before I show you my card the winner of my stamp from those of you who commented on my blog after entering the Allsorts challenge is 

Entry 203 Sandma.

You will find my e-mail address on my blog under the 'about me' section, please let me have your address so I can post the stamp off to you.
Thank you for your comment.

Here is my card for this weeks challenge.

I have used these two metal images that I have had since year dot. I think it is the first time I have entered the R.D. challenge with only one card instead of a batch make, but I had only one of each of these images.
Have no idea where the images are from but the papers are from the Sara Davies Contemporary Christmas pad.

Looking forward to seeing your entries not only into the Allsorts challenge but in the RD challenge too.

Thank you for looking and any comments you are kind enough to leave.
Do pop over the challenge blog to see the lovely creations by my fellow Teams.

Snippets Playground weeks 269 and 270


Another two weeks challenge over at Di's Snippets Playground and today I have been playing with some SU snippets and made these two cards.

Don't look at the first card for too long as it can make your eyes go funny.
Just two simple cards but I love the colour combo of these papers and feel it is a shame to waste any.
I was going to make more but got fed up.
Apart from the sentiments and flowers everything is SU.
The ribbon is not snippets though, an odd flower I had that were just the perfect colour.
Thanks

Allsorts challenge - week 403 Anything Goes

Good Morning, yes another Saturday and another challenge over at Allsorts.
A very easy challenge this week as the lovely Annie has chosen Anything Goes.
Our sponsor this week is ...

The prize on offer for one lucky winner is a £20 voucher to spend in the store.

But, there is also a 15% discount off purchases for all who enter our challenge this week, at the check out using the code. ALLSORTSFEB17  valid from 18th - 24th of February, so better get your entries in early so you have more time to brows the store.

Not only that but some members of the Design Team have extra prizes on offer too.
You need to check out their blogs and if they have a prize you do need to have entered our challenge and leave a comment on the DT members own blog as they will be the ones running Mr R.O. to choose the winner of their prize.

At last here is my card

This is my very first attempt at a shaker card, sorry, once again about the photo.
In hind-sight (which these days seems to be better than my normal sight) I did not put in enough stuff to shake but I have learned a lesson, so that is good.
The card is Kanban, thought ir was so pretty, even though it has a butterfly one, thought I had better mention that, as I am sure one or two of my followers would.

Oh nearly forgot.... here is my prize


It is a Honey Doo Crafts stamp - Floral Obsession
This stamp has not been used - I bought two, forgetting that I already had one, but I had to take it out of the packet to do the photo as I was reflected in the background and it didn't look good.
Have a great week everyone.

Allsorts challenge week 402 - `Hearts and Flowers

This weeks challenge at Allsorts has been chosen by Brenda and I was going to say being an old Romantic she has chosen the theme of Hearts and Flowers but forget the old bit please, it just goes with the saying.

This is the prize on offer this week.

Here is my card.
I have used a pre-colour LOTV topper and papers.
Sentiment - Woodware
Ribbon SU and a very old flower punch.
Quite a plain card but it does look better in RL as I have added Wink of Stella here and there.

Thanks to all who have called in and huge thanks to those of you who are kind enough to leave a comment, good or bad.
Have a great week.

Rudolph Day January 2017

Doesn't seem two minutes since it was January 2016 and we are now on the first Rudolph Day challenge of 2017 over at Scrappy MO's

This little fellow made his first appearance on our Allsorts challenge on the 31st December where the challenge was something new, as he was then.
Well he is back again with another design of card.
While I was at it I made a few more.
So there are six in all.
The embossing folder has no name as they were sent to me by a lovely blogging Friend, quite some time ago actually but I had forgotten where I had put them but while hunting for some other lost item, I came across them and decided to use them for this image.

I dabbed glitter glue over the leaves, which is not good for a photo but I hope you get the idea.
The Robin is part of a set by Hobby Art and yes he will be appearing again later on.
I actually stamped the wings again and paper pieced them to give a bit of a lift but to be honest it didn't make too much difference.
Sentiment - Peel off.

I suppose it sounds like my craft room is a bit of a tip but it isn't really, I just move things around and swop them from one place to another that I forget where I have put them.
