Allsorts challenge week 399 - Daisy Daisy


Our prize this week is this lovely stamp set by John Lockwood/Creative Expressions

The lovely Wendy has chosen the theme this week, and she would like to see Daisies on your cards.

I have used a die set from the English Country Garden.

The rest of the elements are from my ever increasing collection of things I have had for quite some time. Trying not to buy new stuff but use old stuff, so far so good, well it  has been 20 days now into the New Year so I think I have done well.

The flowers are all die cut from my huge box of snippets of white card and coloured with chalks so this card will be heading into Pixie's Snippets Playground.

Have a good week.

Coffee and Cream.
I am also entering it into Pixies Snippets Playground where, as always, it is Anything Goes as long as you use snippets.

Allsorts challenge week 397 - Cats or Dogs

Susan has chose the challenge this week which is to use an image of either a cat or a dog or even both.
Our lovely sponsors this week are

Digi Stamp Boutique

and Sizzix
with this fabulous prize for one lucky winner.


Here is my card.


I have used a Penny Black stickeroo for my image and sentiments.
This is for one 9 year old who loves dogs and flowers, hence the flowers from Hobby House on the ribbon.
Backing card and ribbon SU.

Oh by the way I have found my lost Christmas die, that I used on last weeks card, it was under my old cutting mat!

Allsorts challenge - week 396 - Something New

Not something Old, Borrowed or  Blue but something New

That is the choice of the lovely Mervi who is hosting this weeks challenge at Allsorts.
Maybe it is some lovely goodies you have received for Christmas or something that you have not used before, or even a new Baby, Home, quite a few options available for you.

Our sponsor this week is Tattered Lace with this lovely die.


Here is my card.

The gorgeous Robin image is from a set of three from Hobby Art.
Round Robins - new for Christmas
The die is from Memory Box, bought just before Christmas at 50% off, and not used before, and now I can not find it anywhere?? 
The die has been cut in Platinum glitter card, which is really NBUS.
The sentiment is a peel off, coloured red, which certainly does not look like it.

Sorry it is a Christmas card but all my new stuff has been Christmas related.
It was really very difficult to photo, tried numerous times and either the Robin suffered or the glitter card suffered.
Hope you have all had a lovely Christmas and wish you 
A Happy and Healthy 2017.

My New Year's resolution is that I am NOT buying anything at all for crafting that is Christmas related, so don't anyone tempt me.

Pixie's Snippets Playground

It is weeks 260 and 261 over in the Playground
Unfortunately it has been a while since I stepped foot in there but here I am at last.

The past few days I have been busy making 5 of these pop-up boxes as I have five female friends who will be reaching their three score years and 10 Birthdays, I have yet to put the names and numbers on as I haven't decided which person is getting which box.
This is going into the Playground because all the flowers were die cut from snippets of white card and then coloured with pearlescent chalk and then set with hairspray.

I would like to take this opportunity to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all my Followers, Allsorts Team members, especially Brenda who is always on hand to help and encourage.

Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas
and a Happy and Healthy 2017.

Thanks again
