Happy 5th Birthday Allsorts


Using air dry clay, DP's, cardstock and ribbons from Baker Ross

It's our 5th Birthday at Allsorts and we are celebrating !!

And we have loads of prizes from Marianne Designs, Crafty Ribbons, Yours and Mine Papercrafts, A Passion for Stamps, FlonzCraft,  Baker Ross, Scrappers Delight as well as a prize for the winner of the secret words and a prize from each of the DT form a lucky winners from those leaving comments on their personal blogs.

I find it quite amazing that it's five whole years, I have been there from the start and can't quite believe how quickly that time has gone. The fact that we are still going as strong as ever is testament to the wonderful crafters who join every week, not to mention our fabulous sponsors and talented Design Team.

Using Distress Markers and Hero Arts stamp

So as you might guess we are having a Blog Hop and have loads of fabulous prizes to be won both on the challenge blog and each DT's own blogs. Lots of you know the ropes but there are always new crafters joining us so just to confirm you need to start from the challenge blog here then visit each DT's blogs, collect a letter and leave a comment and hopefully you should have arrived here from Helene's blog and hop next to Wendy's blog. Once you have collected all the letters sort them into two words and mail you answers to me. Hopefully by now you know the letter you need to collect from my blog ?

Good luck to you all and here is the prize for the winner randomly selected from comments on my blog.

  25. Two well put together cards! It's really difficult to pick a favorite. I like the green one, I find it so hard to use green colors myself, and I like the layout and the clay flowers. Your second one is right down my alley with the clean design and the mix of red, white and black, so pretty!
