Allsorts Week 70 - At least 3 punches

YAY, it's Saturday which means it's time for a new challenge here at ALLSORTS

Firstly a massive thank you to those who took part in Brenda's theme
 "Colours of Autumn"
this proved a popular theme as there were many superb entries.

Don't forget to check if you were the winner of the lovely stamp set,
or if Brenda chose you as one of the top 5

This week it's my turn (Fleur) to set the challenge & I would like to see
"3 Punches"

I would like you to use at least 3 DIFFERENT punches.

This would also be the perfect opportunity to enter our sister challenge
as the theme there is also to use punches, so if you use a Penny Black image you can enter that too,
Obviously you can still use any image to enter the ALLSORTS weekly challenge.

Allsorts Week 69 - Colours of Autumn

Good Morning everyone and welcome to Allsorts where it is my turn - Brenda, to host the new theme. Before I move on to the new challenge, a huge thank you to everyone who joined us for Debs New Beginnings theme last week, so many varied interpretations of the theme and it was a joy to see all your work.

Like it or not we are heading into Autumn but although that means shorter days and colder nights, it does promise some of the most beautiful colours Nature has to offer. It's one of the seasonal colours I most enjoy working with so the theme for you all this week is:

Colours of Autumn

And we are thrilled to be sponsored this week by one of our regular sponsors Stamp Supermarket who are "Run by Stampers for Stampers" and I know that's right because Julia is passionate about her stamps and knows just what us crafters are looking for. She is offering one lucky winner:

Penny Black 30-056 Robins Kingdom from the 2010 Christmas Collection

Their on line offers an absolutely fantastic range of stamps and accessories and they also have a very useful second hand section so you can treat yourself to even more crafty goodies with the added bonus of free UK P&P on orders over £39.00.

The DT have worked their magic again this week and here are their wonderful creations to offer you some inspiration. Please do click on their names to go visit their personal blogs and show your appreciation for all their hard work.

And we are pleased to welcome back Vicky our Guest Designer this month from Stamp Addicts with another of her stunning creations:

Allsorts Week 68 - New Beginnings

Good morning everyone. Welcome to another new challenge here at Allsorts as chosen by me (Debs). But first a great big THANK YOU to all that took the time to join in the fun with Helene's Garden/Park challenge last week - don't forget to check the previous post to see if you were the lucky winner or if you made TOP5.

So this week and next week will be the start of the new school year for most school children in the UK and for my son (and lots more 11 year olds) it also sees the beginning of a new milestone they have reached - moving up to 'BIG' school.
So when I saw it was my turn to pick the theme this week, I immediately knew I wanted to have
'NEW BEGINNINGS' as the theme. 

We are delighted to have another Guest Designer with us this month and are thrilled to welcome Vicky from Stamp Addicts. Vicky and her sister Sarah run the family owned business and we are all familiar with their faces from their regular shows on Create and Craft and craft exhibitions around the Country. Those of us lucky enough to live in the region know what a wonderful selection of stamps and craft products can be found at their shop, but if you are unable to visit the store everything can be purchased from their on line store.

As it is the first of the month we have our regular sponsor this week

and 1 lucky winner picked using will win 10 digi images of their choice.
Here is the card Vicky made for us this week:


And here is some gorgeous inspiration from the DT


(my new school year calendar)

Hope you can join us this week.

Also - don't forget we have our other challenge still running over at:
