Week 90 - It's all about the sentiment

Good morning crafters and welcome to another challenge at Allsorts and this week it is my (Brenda's) turn to host the theme.

But before I tell you about that, a huge thank you for all your support and entries for Debs Love theme last week, you certainly enjoyed that one and kept her busy. Don't forget to check if you were our lucky winner or one of Deb's Top 5.......I certainly don't envy her the task with so many to choose from.

So on to the theme for this week:

It's all about the sentiment

There are some lovely sentiment stamps about and if you are anything like me, tend to forget how simply they can be used to create a stunning creation with little effort, so this week I would like to see those sentiments used as the main focal point of your work.

And I must apologise in advance that I might not get to visit you all this week, my MS is not so good right now and I am having to rely on my daughters to type this for me, so I might be pushing my luck if I ask them to start blogging and commenting as well. But rest assured I will look at all your entries and there will be a Top 5 and winner as usual.

We have two prixes this week, first up is Polkadoodles who are giving this weeks lucky winner a copy of Limited Edition Sugar Birdies CD, full of beautiful papers and elements to bring a whole new dimension to your crafting.

Polkadoodles on line store offers card making & Scrapbooking digital image downloads and CD-Rom crafting to take your CD crafts to a new level and get a designer look to your paper crafting projects......they also stock Martha Stewart, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Impressabilities, Inkpads, Bazzill, Ribbons, Rubber Stamps, Prima, East of India ribbons, Embellishments, Adhesive gems plus all your paper crafting and scrapbooking essentials as well as our fabulous CD's! Plus FREE shipping on orders over £5.00 with no minimum order requirement.

And our second prize comes from this months Guest Desinger Christine Dark, who is offering six digi images from her collection Sketching Stamper Digi Stamps which are an eclectic collection of images for you to download, print and colour at a very affordable price to use in your paper-craft creations. All images are 300 dpi high resolution png format and are therefore versatile for re-sizing in your image editor and printing onto patterned papers
