Week 77 ~ Twas the night before Christmas

Good morning & welcome to another week at ALLSORTS,
Thank you so much to those of you who took part in Brenda's awesome challenge last week,
there were some truly, beautiful entries!

This week it's me (Fleur) who gets to set the challenge,

I would like you take inspiration from the poem

"TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS"

by Clement C. Moore



If you are unfamiliar with this poem you will find it here

This week our sponsor is

New to Digistamp Boutique Sponsored challenges if you use a DSB image you can enter your card twice with Mr Linky!!!

The DT have, again, come with some stunning cards.

Continuing our Guest designer spots, this month we are thrilled to have Clare Rowlands with us.

Clare is the talented artist behind the Molly Blooms stamps

which are distributed through Sir Stamaplot and you can see the whole stamp range on their web site.

This is what Claire has to tell us about herself:

"I have been creating and making forever. As a child my most prized possessions were my boxes of coloured pens and paper, always organized in colour! I am no different 45 years on but now its Copic pens and patterned papers.

When I left school I went on to study graphic design, which led me to my first job as a packaging designer which I just loved. Even after Molly and George were born and I was a stay at home mum I still liked to mess and be creative ... which I have definitely passed onto Molly who has just graduated from university with a degree in Design and Art Direction.

On returning to work I ran a ‘paint your own ceramic studio’ and then went onto teaching craft workshops, but always for someone else.

Then at the beginning of this year I decided to do something for myself... and Molly Blooms was born.

The stamps are based on my children and things that were, and still are, dear to them!"

Here is Clare's card
