Week 677 🎉 🎈 Allsorts 13th Birthday

Welcome to our 13th Birthday celebrations where we have a very special week lined up.

We are keeping the theme simple which we hope will allow lots of you to join in and celebrate with us for a chance to win a prize....

******Anything for a Birthday******

Plenty of scope there, cards, gift bags and boxes, gifts or even a Birthday Cake.

Fifteen prizes in total and as always you can join in three times but I would draw your attention to the notes on last weeks challenge here, it's simple enough and we will eliminate any entries not adhering to our rules in fairness to the majority who do abide by them.

A bundle of Sizzix and Paper Boutique coordinating Card, Design Papers and  Scrapbook kit

13 craft stamps
3 images from...... 

Ruth Hamilton Design: I have enjoyed crafting all my life and have been involved in the craft industry for several years. I started drawing images to use on cards for my own use and then went on to design some stamps for a well known craft company.I am an avid lover of nature so most of my drawings are of flowers, birds and animals. Even when I can’t travel I love spending time in the garden, growing plants and looking after them. I hope you enjoy colouring my digi images, I have several YouTube videos here.

Of course the Design Team have some fabulous inspiration to share as as it's such a special week we have three Guest Designers Ruth one of our sponsors using one of the images you will find in her store as well as Sarn and Vee, everyone would love a visit from you, just click on the link above their names......


We look forward to visiting all you creations this week, I will be back on Friday with our winners and maybe a Top 10 as well.
We aim to comment on all entries at least once, usually more…but not all DT’s have access to third party hosts such as as Pinterest, Splitcoast, Flickr and Facebook so will be unable to leave a comment. However, as long as those entries are eligible for the theme they will still be included in draws and Top 5 picks.

Those leaving a comment or entering a piece of artwork into Inlinkz do so in the knowledge that their name and blog link are visible to all who visit this blog and in so doing have published their own personal details and consented to our use of that personal information should it be selected as a winner or accredited work.

Week 676 - Add Some Sparkle

Hi everyone, it's Pauline here, your host for this week's Allsorts challenge, and I have chosen the theme

*** Add Some Sparkle ***

I love a bit of sparkle whether it be sparkly pens, gems or the actual glitter that gets everywhere!! ... so there are lots of options for you to choose from, and I really hope you can join us.

This week we have two wonderful prizes to give away to randomly drawn winners:

Firstly a £15 store voucher for WOWVOW


WOWVOW grew from a love of card making and a history of making wedding invitations. A family-owned business we supply carefully selected quality, card making and craft supplies but specialise in all the materials required to make your wedding stationery from ‘Save the Date’ cards and Wedding Invitations through to beautiful glitter guest books for the big day. From humble beginnings, our love of crafting has evolved into offices, a warehouse and a fabulous, dedicated team who not only offer amazing customer service but also pack every order with the utmost care.

Secondly we have a prize of 2 Paper Discovery stencils (designs will vary)


I would also love to give you all a heads up for next week's challenge as it will be very special ... Allsorts Challenge will be 13!! Yep! The Allsorts baby will become a teenager, and we will have a special celebration challenge with LOTS of prizes ... you won't want to miss it!
In light of our special challenge and bumper prize crop next week, can we please draw your attention to an amendment to our rules listed on the page above. In future each entry must be generated from a separate post - i.e we will not accept more than one entry from any given post

Also this provides a good opportunity to clarify our simple eligibility rules which are listed at the top of the page, and to remind everyone that there is a maximum three entries per challengeand we do not allow backlinked entries. This means your entry must not link to any post dated before the start of the challenge, or be old work copied from a previously published post. This is to ensure that the competition for the prize draws is fair to everyone, which we're sure you'll all understand.

So - without further ado .. here is this week's fab inspiration from the team.

First thank you to this week's guest designer Hilary.

Lots of tags ... a clue as to the number of prizes for our 13th birthday challenge !!
