Week 189 - Dies and Punches

Sarah is our host this week but before she tells you about her theme I (Brenda) would like to say a few words about Emma who has just left us here at Allsorts. 

It was Emma and her friend Kirsten who had the foresight to come up with the idea of Allsorts challenge almost four years ago, that was at a time when there were not too many challenges about and most of us were fairly new to Blogland. The fact we are still going strong is testament to Emma's commitment to the challenge and as I am now the only remaining member of that original team I would like to send her on behalf of us all, our very best wishes for the future. 

And that brings me nicely onto introducing some new team members, Catherine joined us for the first time last week and today Samantha, Tracy Mouse and Wendy are with us for the first time, so please join me in sending a warm welcome to them all. OK that's enough from me, I will now hand you over to Sarah.

                      Good morning everyone, Sarah here with our lovely new challenge which is...

'Dies & Punches'

so a nice easy one ;-)

We have two wonderful sponsors this week: Crimson Cloud 

and A Passion for Stamps

Now it's time to show you how the Design Team have interpreted my theme. I think you'll agree they have done a fabulous job...
