Week 290/291 - Last minute gifts

Note added: Following on from my note on yesterdays winners post, the new name drawn to receive the FlonzCraft prize is Lena. Well done Lena, please mail me so I can arrange for you to choose and received your stamps.

Morning, Helene here to introduce the last challenge for this year. Because you see, this challenge will last for two weeks to give us all a well earned Christmas holiday :).

Since this time of the year can be hectic you sometimes end up needing some last minute gifts - you know the feeling? So we might as well set the theme to Last Minute Gifts :)

As our sponsors this week we have Marianne Design offering a surprise gift to a lucky winner.

And 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 many of her designs can also be purchased as rubber stamps, punches and dies all sold under the Tonic Studios brand name.

And here are the DT work to inspire you all. Have a lovely, creative and joyful Christmas!!

Week 289 - White Christmas

Good Morning Everyone,

It's Jo here and it is my turn to host our fabulous Challenge Blog at Allsorts.

I hope that you have all checked out the Winners post for last weeks Challenge and if you are a winner or in our top 5 well done!  

As we all know it is a very busy time at the moment but we would love to see a project using the title

White Christmas

Now as you will see some of my lovely team members have also used a little bit of colour - as long as the project is using mainly white in the design this will be acceptable.  Remember it isn't just cards that we love to see.
Thankyou to our fantastic sponsors this week who are :-

Flonz craft 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. 

and thankyou also to:-

My name is Janice (AKA Scrapper's Delights), I discovered the digital scrap booking world November 2008 and started to Design February 2009 and really love it so I decided I wanted to have my own shop so here we are lol.

As usual our fantastic Team have put together some gorgeous examples of what we would like to see.


This is a second card from Brenda and although there is a little bit of colour apart from White the verse from the traditional song is fabulous. 




I hope that you will find a little time to craft in this busy time and perhaps enter the Challenge this week. Thankyou for popping in at Allsorts.  Please add your entries below.

Dont forget to check out the winner and top 5 next Friday.

Bye for now
Jo xx
