Allsorts 343/343 Anything but christmas

Hi All

I wanted to wish you all a happy Christmas and new year, this week Brenda is hosting us with our new challenge and this one will run for two weeks to allow everyone to enjoy the festive season.  We are stepping away from Christmas cards now!

********Anything but Christmas********

I am sharing my desk calendar for this coming year

And as it's a two week challenge we have four lovely sponsors...................

DigiStamp Boutique offers a wide range of digi images designed by Sally-Ann Hancock. My work means the world to me - it allows my passion to draw and create, to fit with my family life too - often the inspiration for my designs. Hope you enjoy as much as I enjoy creating.

Stamp Addicts is a family run business based in Bedfordshire and have been in business since 1992. We have watched the popularity of rubber stamping and all papercrafts steadily increase over time and now manufacture our own branded rubber stamps which frequently feature on Hochanda TV as well as craft shows across the UK.

Deedee's Digis, sadly Deedee's is closing it's doors at the end of this month so we would like to thank them for their support of Allsorts and wish Deedee well in the future. Deedee has made available a fabulous collection of images for one lucky winner.

Whimsy Stamps are a family owned art stamp company dedicated to providing crafters around the world with whimsical and fun rubber stamp designs. All of our rubber stamps are made from deeply etched rubber, mounted on Cling Cushion Foam and once trimmed are ready to use with an acrylic block. Our Shapeology Metal Craftings dies are exclusive to Whimsy Stamps and can be used with many table top cutting machines. These dies are made in the USA using top quality steel. They are perfect for cutting papers and fabrics and many coordinate with our sentiment stamps. We also have our own line of 6x6 designer papers printed on high quality, slightly textured vellum paper.

My card has lots of gold gilding wax, amazing how much black card changes with it

Our sponsor is A day for Daisies, they have some lovely digistamps for a lucky winner.

Allsorts Week 330 - CAS

Hi All

Brenda is our hostess with the mostess this week and has set a nice theme for quick and easy cards (which i should know as mine is hot off the press) the theme is

********Clean and Simple********

The theme of your work can be anything you wish, it just needs to be CAS style, I know it's one that scares some of us a little, me included as it's always so temping to fill in those white spaces, but I am sure you will all rise to the challenge.

I have used a image by our sponsor scrappers delight called  spreading a little magic silhouette, ive printed this straight onto card and made a blank, few gems and a ribbon and its done!

Our sponsor this week is Scrappers Delight offering one winner three of their images

My name is Janice (AKA Scrapper's Delights), I discovered the digital scrap booking world November 2008 and started to Design February 2009 and really love it so I decided I wanted to have my own shop so here we are lol.

There is also a second prize to be won, a pretty My Minds Eye paper pad..................
