Week 364 - Happy 7th Birthday Allsorts

Good morning to you all, a very excited Brenda here with our 7th Birthday challenge. It's scary where those years have gone as it seems like only yesterday I posted my card for our very first challenge back in 2009. Non of the members of original DT remain, but we have a very dedicated team who have been together for some time now and work together so well. 

So a few thank you's are in order:
  • The Design Team who each week amaze me with their creations to inspire you all and their hard work visiting your entries.
  • Our wonderful sponsors who continue to lend their support to Allsorts and provide a super variation in prizes.
  • And last but by no means least all of you who return week after week to share your wonderful artwork, many of whom have been with us since day one.

And as it's a special occasion there is of course a very special prize which I am thrilled to tell you is being very generously provided by Tattered Lace and this weeks lucky winner chosen as always by Ramdom Org., will receive a fabulous £50 voucher to spend at their store here.

And the theme this week could be only one thing.......................
