Allsorts - no patterned paper

This week Tracy Mouse set the theme at Allsorts to "No patterned papers". Ooooh, tricky one was my first thought, I love design papers! But I'm not the one who folds easily so I made a dry embossed background, used some lovely Penny Black birds and a huge bow as focus so no one would even react to the fact that it's just plain white cardstock as a base :)

Allsorts - something new

I hope 2018 started nicely for you all. It's a fresh new year now, gone are the Christmas decorations and it's time to look forward to spring (which is way, way ahead when you live where I do). We have a brand new challenge for you at Allsorts, and the theme is Something new. I used a new stamp from Lili of the Valley and just to be on the safe side I also have the theme new home on the card :).

I hope you all have a nice weekend, it's back to school on Monday for me after the Christmas holiday so I'm really savouring these last few days :)

Allsorts - Seasonal flowers

To give the Allsorts DT a well earned Christmas holiday this challenge is two weeks long and the theme is Seasonal flowers. So out came some white poinsettas with white and gold stamen. I used dry embossing on the snowflake backing and heat embossing on the star sentiment.

Have a relaxing, creative and wonderful Christmas!

Allsorts - Cold and frosty

Time for a new challenge at Allsorts, this time to use cold and frosty colours. I used silver and lilac with lots of snowflakes and a big bow. Even though the paper is a very flowery summer paper it worked well with the snowflakes and Christmas sentiment. We are sponsored by Crafty Ribbons and there is always lots of goodies to find there!

Allsorts - Snowflakes

I'm hosting the challenge at Allsorts this week and I thought that Snowflakes would be a fitting theme. Because we're closing in on Christmas AND my chorus Snowflake singers have our annual Christmas concert this weekend - one show this evening and one tomorrow.

So I made a gift tag in white with silver snowflakes and a purple bow to top it of. I hope you join in the challenge and have a lovely weekend!

Allsorts - Thank you

So sorry for being late with my post, but had the funeral for my mother-in-law this weekend and I thought the post was scheduled, but obviously not :(

So, though late, here's my contribution to Allsorts challenge this week and the theme is Thank You.

This week at Allsorts we challenge you to be inspired by a Christmas song. I chose Coldplay's Christmas Lights and made a gift bag with a LotV image.

Allsorts - Glitter

Time for a Glitter challenge at Allsorts. I made a card with a gold mirror backing paper and a big golden bow. Glitter can be all sorts of sparkling things, but for this challenge not gems or pearls.

I hope you join our challenge, and I hope you have a nice weekend. Here in the north we have a bright sun shining on the frosty landscape this morning, and I'm gonna prepare for the christening of my grandson tomorrow, so life is good :)
