Happy 6th Birthday Allsorts and Tattered Lace dies to be won



Good morning, I hope you are ready for the bank holiday weekend whatever you have planned and lets hope the weather is kind. Please accept my apologies for the lack of activity for a whole week, I have been rather under the weather and on the hospital run again, but fingers crossed things are slowly getting back to normal.

Today is Allsorts 6th Birthday and we are celebrating in style with a very special prize to be won..............a £50 Tattered Lace shopping voucher. Plus, there are some more Tattered Lace dies to be won which I shall explain about a bit further down this post.

I find it amazing that we are six years old, I have been on the team since day one and little did I think that we would still be going and in fact getting even stronger after six years and there could only be one there really this week, it's 'Birthday's. 

Yet more Tattered Lace dies to be won

As well as the fabulous Tattered Lace prize to be won at Allsorts, I have two more of their dies to give away, but there is a slight twist as I shall be selecting two winners from the followers over at the Tattered Lace Blog, so if you are not already a follower do pop over there to be in with a chance of winning one of the beautiful dies pictured above.

As I am very fortunate to be on both the Tattered Lace Design Team for TV work as well as their inspirational blog team, my DT piece is of course using their fabulous dies. It's four month since I was invited to join them and I'm still having a ball and loving working with their products. My canvas above..............which I will add was tremendous fun to make.........is also on the Tattered Lace Blog today along with how I created it so I won't bore you with all the details here as well.

I hope you all have a lovely holiday weekend and I do hope you will join in our Birthday celebrations this week.

What a beautiful card Brenda. I love the color scheme you used here, and such a beautiful background! Hope you recover quickly! I've been sick this week too, thought it was allergies, but not so sure anymore, as it's been almost 7 days now and still suffering from it.

Such a beautiful card. I love the color combo and these dies make me think of a beautiful summer day@ Beautiful job!

MaryH said...

Brenda, so sorry to hear you've had a bit of relapse, but glad to hear that you are once again on the mend. Happy Birthday Allsorts! & smart of them to have you on the team from the get-go. This is one fabulous card with the look of old patina'd metal in that beautiful blue green background. The hint of gold gilt on the amazing elements really makes me think of old metal statuary seen in tangled & magical gardens. So very pretty & feels very light & airy. Those would be some totally awesome dies to win, and a voucher at TL....WOW! I love those dies. Have a restful holiday, TFS & I hope you are back to 100% very soon. Dunno how you keep up with things as you do, even without the not feeling well thrown at you as well. Hugs

Gail said...

Just catching up Brenda!
Thanks for popping by!
Great job with all the cards in previous posts, and of course this one!
Hope you're feeling better!
