Allsorts challenge week 490 - Traditional Christmas

Another Christmas theme again this week and this great theme Traditional Christmas colours

By Traditional Christmas we want to see the colours of Red, Green and White.

Our sponsor this week is Swedish House Crafts.
They are offering a voucher to spend in their store.


For my card today I have used a Kanban stamp that I bought on sale for £1.00
The background  papers are LOTV/Nitwits and once again I went over the pinky/purple stripe with a red Promarker.
Paper pieced the chair with another LOTV paper
Added some card candy
The sentiment stamps came with the image. 

Another Christmas card Bites the Dust.

After my post of last week I did more checking and the problem goes back to around the 16th of September and my comments are showing and continuing to show on those who have a 'pop-up' comment box but it is on those blogs that have an embedded (comment box at the bottom of the post) they say publishing but do not appear on the list of comments.
I have still continued to leave comments on those of you with embedded comment boxes just in case it suddenly returns back to normal, what's the saying "When Nelson gets his eye back"! no doubt.

Had a really lovely day at the Dome last Sunday and met some really lovely crafters, now they have all posted since the Dome and mentioned those they met but I haven't so it will be old news to some but not to others.
Brenda our lovely leader at Allsorts.
Sandra, Sally and Lynne from Stamping Sensations.
It was really lovely to meet them, such nice people.

Thanks so much for popping by and for any comments you are kind enough to leave..

Allsorts challenge week 489 - Christmas

Another week has flown by so we have a new challenge over at Allsorts.
This week is the turn of our lovely Susan and she has chosen the theme of...

Christmas

A really wide range of options for you with this theme.
Our sponsor for this challenge is Sticker You


I have used Penny Black stamp from the Jolly Friends collection.
Spellbinders dies for the border and for the image.
The gold papers are from a First Addition pad, they have some glitter on them but you will not be able to see it. The front of the card ends at the edge of the die and I have used the same papers on the inside of the card.
Sentiment computer generated and backing punch SU.

Getting excited as I am going to the Dome at Doncaster tomorrow and will be meeting up with Brenda and maybe some other members of our team.

It seems that there is some problem with the comments I am leaving on most of your blogs, they seem to disappear. Had no idea about this till I had a comment from one of my followers asking if I was ill or had been away as she had not had a comment from me for a while. Well I had posted a comment on every post she has made but it was not there. As I was doing my commenting last night I checked out all your older posts as well and there was no comment showing from me.

I can assure you that I have been leaving comments and they have stated that they have been published but no idea why they are not there and I have also no idea how long this has been going on or why it has changed but I do apologise and wish to let you know that I have not forsaken you.


Thanks for popping by and any comments that you are kind enough to leave.

Allsorts challenge week 488 - Trees or Leaves

Good Morning another challenge at Allsorts and this weeks hoast is the lovely Mervi.
She has chosen the theme of 

Trees or Leaves or both

Our Sponsor this week is MarianneDesigns.
This is the prize she has so generously donated.

Here is my card

It uses a 6 x 6 paper from Craftwork cards for the background.
I then used a Poppystamps die - Lorelai Leaf and used the die in the centre of the papers to cut out the leaves.
I used a MFT - Stiched square, scalloped edge die, which actually make a square border but with the  centre cut out. I put the leaves onto the cut out centre and placed it in the middle of the die cut border to cover the die cut out leaves.
I punched some tiny flowers, from pink papers the make of the punch is 
Tom Tas - how old is that.? With a few tiny gems in the centre.

Thanks for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave.

Rudolph Day - September 2018

It's Rudolph Day again over at ScrappyMo's you can enter until the 30th of September.
There is a choice of one of two prizes this month. - A snowflake die or a stamp set.


For my card I have used the Memory Box die - Winterland Tree.
I decided to use the die quite a few times and then inlayed the pieces into each tree, fixed the two green trees to the paper and then used pads to lift the white one off the green ones.
The subtle background papers have snowflakes on but quite hard to see from the photo.
I think the papers were some left from the 'Frozen' collection.

Thanks for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave.

Allsorts challenge week 486 - Water or the colour Blue

Another Saturday and another challenge over at Allsorts.
This week it is the turn of our lovely Helene to set the theme and she has chosen...

Water or the Colour Blue

Our Sponsor this week is Craft Obsessions.
They are offering a £15 store voucher for the lucky winner.

Here is my card.

Would you believe the image is called 'Flowers in a Can'
Not my idea of a can rather more of a jug.
There are a few small sentiments with this set that fit perfectly in the square on the can.
Now I have used both water and blue.
Coloured with Pro-Markers
The edge dies are Spellbinder.
The dotty card is Kanban

So where is the water, well it is in the can of course otherwise the flowers would be dead!

Thanks for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave are very much appreciated.

Allsorts challenge week 485 -Create or stamp a scene

As the title of my post says our challenge at Allsorts this week is to create or stamps a scene and it was chosen by our lovely Ellie, please check the challenge post for more details

Our sponsor this week is Swedish House Crafts
Swedish House Crafts has a great sale on at the moment with 50% off everything but you need to be quick as it ends on the 16th of September.
The prize for one lucky winner is a £15 store voucher.

We are also very pleased to announce that we have a new DT member -
Lynn aka Crafty Linby.
A huge welcome to the team Lynn.

Now at last here is my card


I used background papers from Craftwork Cards.
Woodware stamp - Grasses
Now running through the grasses is a tiny little rabbit, you may need a magnifying glass.
Since making this card I have bought a VersaFine Clair Nocturne pad and it is really far better for doing black silhouette stamping in my humble opinion.

Totally out of my comfort zone with this challenge. Left it with out a sentiment for now.

Thanks for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave.
