Week 133- It Takes Two

Good Morning everyone, I hope you are all OK and nearly ready for Christmas.

It's B here hosting this weeks new theme which is "It Takes Two", use only two colours on your creation this week, although you can also use white as your base colour.

Thank you all who joined in Debs theme last week with lots of you 'going round in circles', don't forget to check out her post below to see if you were a lucky winner or in her Top 5.

As we are really getting into the Christmas spirit we are spoiling you with two sponsors this week.

First up is A Passion for Stamps and the prize is the winners choice of four stamps

And second is Scotch Tapes who are giving away three packs of their new Restickable Tabs which retail at £3.32 per pack, a really practical prize at this time of the year. Here's is a bit about them:

The double-sided adhesive tabs are easy to use and ideal for sticking up your festive decorations to any surface. Scotch Restickable Tabs remove cleanly, ensuring you won’t have any marks or mess. And, because the tabs are clear, you won’t see them when used to hang your Christmas decorations, even on windows and mirrors. Best of all, when you’ve finished with them you can simply wash them with some soapy water and they’ll be sticky again and as good as new.

I am delighted to say that Ruth from A Passion for Stamps is joining us as a Guest Designer this week with this stunning creation.....................

Using Ruth's Narcissus image
Using Ruth's Poinsettia image

Fleur is having a week off, but hopes to be back with us next week.

From us all at Allsorts, have a good weekend and we look forward to visiting you all.
