Week 20 at Allsorts

Well its week 20 at Allsorts already, its going so fast!, must be because of all the fun we are having lol!!

Ok this weeks challenge is from Lisa and she challenged us to use Autumn as our inspiration there is also a fab prize available from a new sponsor The Craft Garden

They are a fab new online shop for all your flowery wants and needs and they come in smaller quantities so you can pick and choose rather than just getting the one range and waiting till next time to choose more, They are offering a fab prize and a special offer to all Allsorts visiters!!!

This is my fav image from the WOJ fall kit she is so beautiful!

I stamped round the edge of the image with the pumpkin stamp from the same kit and coloured with promarkers the papers were given to me by the fab Kirsten and I think they are from a company in the US, wow they are so rich and were perfect for this challenge.........

Thanks for popping by

Well just a quickie post this evening to post the card I made for this weeks WOJ challenge the DT would like you to use.......................wait for it ...............TEAL and ORANGE!!!!

This is what I came up with and its also my first attempt using 2 stamps together on one image rather than cutting one out to stick over the other one....which I am very pleased with and will definitely be using this teqnique again.....
Papers are basic grey and the sentiment is a gel sticker I mounted on white card and then onto one edged in the teal colour.

I thought I would try a new challenge this evening and as I was getting some more christmas stash out I found my Yule Be Funky CD from the Lovely Anice over at Funky Hand that I won over at Penny Black Saturday in January and it hadnt been used!!!! well I must say that although there are christmas themed papers on there most of them can be used for everyday crafting too and come in around 9/10 colour colours I love them!!!!!

I decided to make a christmas card as I am looking for some clean,quick and simple designs to make for the christmas fair my friend has at her nursery and with all the colour designs on the CD I will be spoilt for choice..

The image was ....can you believe it a freebie stamp that came with six other stamps on this months Card Making and Papercrafts Mag they are so sweet you will definitley be seeing more of him, coloured with my usual promarkers and the metal snowflake is from last years christmas stash........
