Week 148 Photo Inspiration

Good morning Debs here with details of this weeks challenge but first thanks to those that found time to join in with Helene's 'Use a Recipe' theme last week - not so many entries as I think most of you were probably enjoying the fabulous weather we have been having in the UK :o)

So this week it was my turn to pick the theme and I chose this collage of pictures to take your inspiration from. You can use the colours, the images or perhaps try a combination of the two :o)

Our sponsor this week is

I am really looking forward to visiting you all to see what you come up with.

Week 145 - Say it with Flowers

Good Morning everyone,
 Nicola here, inviting you to join in with another week of fun with Allsorts, but before I let you know all about it, thanks to everybody who entered Brenda's Spread your Wings theme last week, there were some truly magical creations! Scroll down to see if you won or made the Top 5.
This week I decided to keep you busy with the theme:

Say it with Flowers

Mothers Day is fast approaching but even if you have those done and dusted, we all love flowers, and if you are like me, add them to everything that stays still long enough!

Our sponsor this week is:

offering a 10 euro voucher

We are pleased to welcome Mel from Crimson Cloud is our Guest Designer this week with this beautiful card and she explains what Spring means to her..........

 Spring is my favourite time of year and daffodils my favourite spring flower. They stand in defiance of the cold winter and trumpet the heralding of spring. Naturally, then, one of my favourite poems written by William Wordsworth is “Daffodils”. The sentiment in this stamp is a line from this poem. “Ten thousand saw I at a glance, tossing their heads in sprightly dance” Add these all together and you have the inspiration for this symbolic stamp.

Here is the amazing inspiration that our wonderful Design Team have created for you this week:



The Allsorts Design Team look forward to seeing what you create for us this week and can't wait to visit your wonderful blogs.
Don't forget to add your creation below (provided Mr Linky behaves!) by 6pm on Friday 16th March.
Have a great week
