Allsorts - things with wings and winner!

Morning,
thank you all for participating in the Allsorts birthday blog hop and in my own little extra surprise give-away. Winner at the bottom of this post.

DCD - sketch

Morning all,
I'm back from Holland and it was amazing!!

But back to business now =). It's time for another challenge at Die Cut Dreams and Dawn has a lovely sketch for you to follow.

I turned the sketch a quarter of a lap and made this box card using paper from Melissa Francis and a magnolia image.

SFTW - blue, buttons and bling

Ok, a scheduled post since I'm in Bergen op Zoom =).

We're back with another challenge for Stampin for the Weekend after the short break. This time it's a recipe and it's blue, buttons and bling.

I used this gorgeous image from Rick St Dennis and papers from DCWV Luxury Stack. As usual bling doesn't come out good in photos so use your imagination =).

Allsorts - Teddy Bears picnic

I totally enjoyed hopping around to look at all the wonderful contributions to my Stamp a lot challenge at Allsorts last week - or at least I did until Blogger more or less broke down... , but now it's Deb's turn and she chose Teddy Bears picnic for her theme.

We got some images from our sponsor and I made flower sticks for my garden. Backing paper is plain white paper that I coloured with distress ink stamp pads and embossed with an embossing folder. The ribbon I just twisted and fastened at the end with a glue dot to hold in place. A nice effect in my humble opinion.

WomWW

Haven't had time - or memory =) - to do this in ages but I have a moment now LOL

This is my desk this morning, yesterday I sat with the invitations to my daughter's graduation party, yes, they are upside down I know =)

The paper in the middle of the desk is a downright failure of an attempt to mix blue and red (a really wonky combination in my humble opinion) so it's back to the drawing board...

Allsorts - Stamp a lot

Morning,

first of all: Happy Birthday to Susie Sugar today!!! Have a lovely day girl!

This week at Allsorts it's my turn to oversee the event and we have not one but two sponsors; both DigiStamp Boutique and Sir Stampalot.

So, in regards to one of the sponsors I thought that a suitable challenge would be to Stamp a lot =). In other words, make sure you use at least three different stamps on your card or project.


Pull tag out for small greeting.

Stamps: Magnolia
Paper: Bearly Mine Designs digi paper
Flowers: retro flower mini punch


Other challenges:

Top Tip Tuesday - open challenge
Papertake Weekly - anything goes
Just Magnolia - anything goes

Award

Got this award from Heidi-Mari, a very talented young crafting girl and also my teammate at SFTW.
I am the worst ever on passing blog awards on cause I would want to send it to every single one on my blog list and that's not really an option =) but it warmed my heart!!
