Allsorts Week 32 - Anything But a Card

Good morning and welcome to another wonderful challenge here at Allsorts. Thank you to everyone that found the time to join us last week - at such a busy time for you all we really appreciate it. Don't forget to check who the lucky winner of the lovely prize from Sir Stampalot was and who Brenda chose as her Top5. This week it's my turn (Debs) to choose the theme and I challenge you to make anything but a card. The DT have come up with some beautiful, inspirational projects and I can't wait to see what you and your creative juices come up with too.

We have a great sponsor this week in A Passion for Stamps and Ruth is offering 1 lucky winner, picked by the opportunity to win these beautiful stamps:
******Also Ruth is having a massive sale with reductions on her stamps from this week . The offer is BUY 1 GET 1 FREE!! When someone buys two stamps , one of the same price or the cheaper of the two will be free. So what are you waiting for go a check out the great sale.*******
And just look at this gorgeous card that Ruth has created for us to show the stamps off beautifully.

(Please check my blog for the full details on how to make these scrummy Body Scrubs)

Allsorts Challenge 31

Happy Saturday everyone and welcome to another Allsorts challenge where it is my turn, Brenda, to host the challenge. If you are like me you are getting a bit fed up with Christmas cards so I though this theme would make a nice change:

"Pearls and Swirls"
Of course if you still have Christmas cards to make then we would love to see them and pearls are swirls will fit very nicely, but equally your project can be for any occasion and can be anything from a card to a cake, the choice really is yours.
And this week our fabulous sponsors are Sir Stampalot again who have a store in Peterborough packed with a huge range of stamps and all nature of other craft goodies. And after Christmas they are moving to a fantastic new shop just a few doors away from their present location, but much much larger and with plenty of free parking. Their on line store will continue as previously providing the swiftest delivery service I have ever found. And if you have any questions about new craft goodies you think you might 'need', Andy and Janice are always at the end of the phone or in the shop to offer friendly and knowledgeable help.

This week we have a Guest Designer, please join me in welcoming Ruth. I am sure you will agree that Ruth and all the Design Team have created some really inspirational work again, what a great bunch of girls these are coming up with such fab work week after week. Please do pop along to their blogs to see how they made their creations.




Just to let you know that our teamie Amanda (scotspanda) will be taking some much deserved 'crafternity' lol! as she is waiting on the arrival of the newest addition to the panda family so we wish her all the best and we look forward to her return in the new year xxxxx
