Week 247 - Ladies Day

A very good morning all you crafty Peeps, Brenda here with this weeks new challenge.

A big thank you to everyone who joined in Helene's theme last week, hopefully all of us managed to use up a few of those brads that we all seem to hoard. Check the post below to see if you were a lucky winner or in our Top 5.

This week I would like to see entries following the theme of................

****** Ladies Day ******

Lots of possibilities here from Birthdays to Mothering Sunday which is coming along next month plus so many other occasions as well, myself and the Design Team are looking forward to seeing your take on the theme.

We have two lovely sponsors this week...............................

We were very sorry to hear this week that Crimson Cloud are closing down next month, they have been one of our sponsors for some time and we will really miss working with them and really appreciate all their support over the years. But they have asked me to give you the heads up that they will be having a closing down sale starting on 1st March so do make a note in your diary.

FlonzCraft are a small family-owned design and craft company from New Zealand, a very small country where all people are great neighbours. We work hard for our work and store philosophy to reflect that in our company. We will never be ashamed of our products. Our main goal is making and selling rubber and clear stamps and we have and unique collection of stamps that you can not find anything else. The prize is a $20 voucher to spend in their on line store.

Now for some inspiration from the Design Team who really have embraced the theme with their beautiful creations..........................

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 and 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 Allsorts challenge and as a bonus, use discount code TAKE20 for 20% off my store until the closing date of this challenge.
