Happy 4th Birthday Allsorts



Well it's arrived, our fourth Birthday at Allsorts and it's frightening how quickly that time has passed by.........my Gran always used to say the years go quicker once you pass twenty one and being a good few past that now I have to say she is probably right.

So in time-honoured tradition we are having a blog hop plus are lots of prizes to be won this week from our sponsors who are: PPR Crafts, Crimson Cloud, Digi Darla, Pin and TackA Passion for Stamps, Stix2 and Pretty Little Ribbons.

They could only be one theme this week really which is Happy Birthday and for my card I used Spellbinder dies, Pick of the Bunch Peruvian Lily Stamp and Punch set, Memory Box leaves and the embossing folder which came with my e.Bosser........... yes I succumbed to one in the end and am finding it a great piece of kit.

On your blog hop journey you should have arrived here from Tracy's blog and go next to Tracy Mouses's blog, but should you get lost along the way you can always go back to the challenge blog and start again. I will be selecting a winner from all the people who call in on me this week and leave a comment and here's the prize for that person.


The letter you need to collect from me is hopefully pretty evident in this post so have fun hopping and wishing you all a lovely weekend.

So much to tell you I nearly for got to announce the winner of last weeks candy and that lucky person is Emily, please mail me so I can post your price off to you.

Have fun with our Birthday celebrations and hope you have a lovely weekend.

  14. Happy Alsorts birthday Brenda! - I love this card the Peruvian Lillies are fab - I've looked at those punches a few times and might just have to succumb and perhaps the ebosser as well - now that my Grand Calibur has finally bit the dust - I think my husband will stop me visiting you - you're a very bad influence lol have a great weekend hugs judith x

  15. What a gorgeous card Brenda. Really pretty layers of pink and white and compliments your prize perfectly. A lovely range of co-ordinated goodies. Your card shows off what can be created with the dies and embossing folders that are available and it's good to see you enjoying your new e.Bosser. Thank you for all the lovely comments you've left recently. Have a good weekend.

  22. Beautiful card Brenda, I would be interested to know if the dies cut into your rubber mat - mine have and I know several ladies who have the same problem and I don't want to buy another just to have the same happen. I need a silicone substitute like the Kars one I have for my Big Shot. Have a lovely weekend, Pauline xx
