Hi Everyone,

Welcome to another week at Allsorts and thank you for joining in with Sarah's Button Challenge last week, please check and see if you are a winner or in the top five.

This week its me (Tracy) hosting the challenge and I am challenging to the challenge "How does your garden grow" so lots of scope for garden scenes, flowers images , garden sentiments etc.

Our sponsors this week are:
Crimson Cloud with the great prize of the winners choice of three sets of die cuts. A mother/daughter venture - a way to indulge our joint passion of cardmaking and crafting. We only sell products that we have tried, tested and love using. We have developed our own exclusive range of digital stamps, svg files and "Make Your Own Card" kits which reflect our styles of card making - and hopefully yours too!

A Passion for Stamps offers a wide range of images designed by Ruth Hamilton. As the name of her store and blog suggests Ruth has a particular love of flowers and her designs have can also be purchased as rubber stamps, punches and dies all sold under the Tonic Studios name.

My DT chums have done me proud this week - thank you ladies
