Weeks 342/343 - Anything but Christmas

Happy Saturday to you all, Brenda here with our new challenge and this one will run for two weeks to allow everyone time to enjoy the festive season so on behalf of myself and all at Allsorts I would like to wish each and everyone one of you a Joyous and Peaceful Christmas Season.

I would also like to take the opportunity to thank the Design Team for their hard work and wonderful creations throughout 2015, a weekly challenge takes a lot of time and commitment for each of the team and it's a pleasure to work with you all.

I think most of us have been in Christmas card mode for that seems like forever, so at the risk of sounding Bah Humbug I have chosen the theme............

********Anything but Christmas********

And as it's a two week challenge we have four lovely sponsors...................

DigiStamp Boutique offers a wide range of digi images designed by Sally-Ann Hancock. My work means the world to me - it allows my passion to draw and create, to fit with my family life too - often the inspiration for my designs. Hope you enjoy as much as I enjoy creating.

Stamp Addicts is a family run business based in Bedfordshire and have been in business since 1992. We have watched the popularity of rubber stamping and all papercrafts steadily increase over time and now manufacture our own branded rubber stamps which frequently feature on Hochanda TV as well as craft shows across the UK.

Deedee's Digis, sadly Deedee's is closing it's doors at the end of this month so we would like to thank them for their support of Allsorts and wish Deedee well in the future. Deedee has made available a fabulous collection of images for one lucky winner.

Whimsy Stamps are a family owned art stamp company dedicated to providing crafters around the world with whimsical and fun rubber stamp designs. All of our rubber stamps are made from deeply etched rubber, mounted on Cling Cushion Foam and once trimmed are ready to use with an acrylic block. Our Shapeology Metal Craftings dies are exclusive to Whimsy Stamps and can be used with many table top cutting machines. These dies are made in the USA using top quality steel. They are perfect for cutting papers and fabrics and many coordinate with our sentiment stamps. We also have our own line of 6x6 designer papers printed on high quality, slightly textured vellum paper.

Week 340 - Clean and Simple

Welcome to our first challenge of December and this week it's my turn, Brenda to host the challenge and I would like to see................

********Clean and Simple********

The theme of your work can be anything you wish, it just needs to be CAS style, I know it's one that scares some of us a little, me included as it's always so temping to fill in those white spaces, but I am sure you will all rise to the challenge.

Our sponsor this week is Scrappers Delight offering one winner three of their images

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.

There is also a second prize to be won, a pretty My Minds Eye paper pad..................

The Design Team have all been busy at work and have a great selection of inspiration this week, my thanks to them all, why not pop along to their individual blogs and show them so love.................
