Week 208 - Happy 4th Birthday Allsorts

A very good morning to all you craft Peeps, today we celebrate our fourth birthday here at Allsorts challenge!!

It's quite amazing how that time seems to have flown by, but of course it's only been made possible because all of you lovely crafters join us time and again with your wonderful pieces of artwork and of course all our fabulous sponsors whose continued support we really appreciate.

So in time honoured fashion we are having a fun blog hop along with this weeks theme which could only be one thing really:

********Happy Birthday********

How easy is that but we wanted to to keep it simple and topical so it's lots of fun and something we hope you will all join in with and why wouldn't you with so many prizes on offer, so let me introduce this week sponsors:

PPR Crafts - $15 voucher:

Crimson Cloud - 3 packs of die cuts:

Winners choice of three pack of die cuts

And now for a blog hope, this is the order you need to follow:

If you get lost you can always come back here and start again. As I know there are always new people joining us here in blog land I will briefly explain that you need to visit each of the DT's blogs as listed above and collect a letter from each so you have eight in total. Leave a comment at each blog as all of the DT have another prize to be won on their individual blogs, then arrange those letters into an eight letter word and mail your answer to me. Then at the end of the week two winners will be selected from all the correct answers to win two more prizes:

A selection of ribbons and embellishments from Pretty Little Ribbons

An Ultimate Adhesive kit from Stix2

And finally how about some inspiration from the Design Team to send you on your way............




Have fun hopping along this week and good luck everyone.

Week 205 - Add some sparkle

Hi Tracy here with this week Allsorts challenge, I would firstly like to thank you for joining in with Brenda's Anything But A Card theme last week which was so popular, don't forget to check out her post below to see if you were a lucky winner or in her Top 5.

As it's my turn to host I chose the theme which is

 "Add Some Sparkle"

So this can be glitter, gems etc............. It's up to you!

As always so long as your entry follows the weeks theme it can be just about anything you have created yourself from cards and tags to gifts. 

We have two sponsors this week, one is a new one who we are pleased to welcome Yours and Mine Paper Crafts offering one lucky winner............

Hello! My name is Mei and I have been card-making for about 3 years now but my tremendous love for it has inspired me to open up my very own online store! Yours or Mine Paper Crafts is a place where you can purchase supplies to create your own projects, or view my gallery for inspiration! We carry brands like The Greeting Farm, Penny Black, Spellbinders and more! All the brands and products we carry are items I have personally used for my own projects and I feel are awesome products that you would like as well.

Its my pleasure to sponsor this week’s challenge at Allsorts and as a bonus use discount code (please see email) for 20% off my store until the closing date of this challenge.

And our regular sponsor DigiStamp Boutique offering one winner six images of their choice.
