Allsorts challenge week 417 - Vintage

Good Morning, another Saturday and another challenge here at Allsorts.
This weeks theme was chosen by the lovely Mervi and it is Vintage.

Our sponsor this week is Swedish House Crafts
A little online shop for affordable high quality dies and stamps.

Here is my card.

I have used a Penny Black stickeroo for the image.
All the other elements I have had for quite sometime.

 This is the very first vintage type of card I have ever made, it is not really me, luckily I had this stickeroo which to me is sort of vintage enough.
Hope you all enjoy the Spring Bank week here in England and that the lovely weather holds up for you.

Thanks for popping by.

Rudolph Day May 2017

Hello, Rudolph day has come around once again over at Scrappy Mo's and we are nearing the end of the 5th month of 2017 so only 6 more R.D.'s to go, get your skates on.
Here is my R.D. card.

These images are from a LOTV art pad and the papers are also from LOTV
These were sent to me as a RAK from a fabulous blogging friend, yes you are.
I put a bit of glitter on the snowflakes on the backing papers and on the wings but you may need to get out your spy glass to spot it.
You can see the difference in the colours of the single card and the three cards, this is what I have to put up with my camera.
Happy Rudolph Day to you all and looking forward to seeing your entries.

Allsorts challenge week 415 - Ring-a-ring of roses.

Our fabulous Team Leader Brenda has chosen the theme of Ring a ring of roses for this weeks challenge

First of all though another reminder for our special challenge next week
You certainly do not want to miss this one as we have a fabulous prize for the lucky winner.
These are the prizes for this weeks challenge and we have two on offer, this lovely stamp from Heartfelt Creations
and this lovely Paper Pad 

I have taken the challenge literally and done a circular card, with a ring of roses.
The roses are from the Penny Black collection of clear stamps - Efforescence.
Looked that up the dictionary and it means a production of flowers.

Backing papers are Nitwits/LOTV
Sentiment Craftwork Cards.
I have actually paper pieced the roses.
Thank you for calling, have a great week.

Snippets Playground weeks 279/280

As I somehow missed the last two weeks in Pixies Snippets Playground I thought I had better be sure to have an entry in weeks 279/280

Here is my entry.

Everything apart from the base card and the DP is from snippets.
I was playing with a stamp and matching die from a Simon Says Stamp set
I cut the dark flowers from  a snippet of card stock and the lighter one from some snippets of Nitwits/LOTV papers. The circles behind the flowers were also die cut from snippets.
The DP are also Nitwits/LOTV.
Added some gems to the centre of the flowers.

Thanks for popping by.
