Allsorts Challenge Week 33 - New or Old (plus a sketch)

Happy New Year Everyone!!!

We hope that you all had a lovely Christmas and that you are ready to jump back into the world of Allsorts challenges.

Before we start though we have some wonderful news to share - one of our teamies
Amanda (Scotspanda) has given birth to a gorgeous baby boy........ALFIE.
He was born on 31st December weighing in at a whopping 9lbs.10oz - well done Amanda.
All our love and good wishes are wending their way to you and all your family.

Next, a very big thank you to everyone who entered our last challenge of 2009. We know how difficult it is to pull craft work in alongside all the demands of the festive season
- but lots of you managed it.

Make sure you check to see if you were our randomly selected winner
or if Debs has chosen you as one of her Top 5!!

Our very first Allsorts Challenge in 2010 is being sponsored by Funky Hand.

Funky Hand produce backing paper CDs
and downloads for card making, scrapbooking and craft projects - click on the logo below and you can see all that is available in their gorgeous on-line store

The CDs are fantastic but the downloads are great too
- especially if you are like me and want to play with things immediately!!! LOL!!!

the prize this week will be a copy of the Funky Hand CD "Funky Daze".

I (Jules) have the honour of setting the first challenge of 2010 and for this week's challenge you can either:

show off your new Christmas craft goodies


be good and use up some of your old stash
(I bet this was one of your new year resolutions !!)

If like me you didn't get any craft goodies from Santa this year but you want to use something new then there are some free papers that you can download and use from the Funky Hand website here.

Some of the DT worked with the free papers - just to give you an idea of what they are like!!


Choose either of the above
but then follow the sketch below

Here are the DT examples to give you some inspiration

We are all looking forward to visiting your blogs to see what you create.
Happy 2010 crafting!!

I apologise that i seem to have 2 entries - but the first time i tried i somehow liked to a challenge i did yesterday and NOT the allsorts challenge. I do not know how to remove it.
Its my first attempt at one of your challenges - so not a good start! But i hope my proper entry is ok and i look forward to taking part in more weeks to come
