Week 190 - Flower Power

Hello Crafters

Well what a week I think the car could take itself to Peterborough to the studio!! I have had a ball using all the new Spellbinder dies and Embossibilities and they are all soooooo gorgeous.  I would love to hear what you all think to them.  Stock is disappearing really quickly now and I am back in tomorrow to do another 2 shows.  I think I am going to need a snow plough to get there though!! All of a sudden the snow came and it really has made quite an impact.  I just hope that we dont have any more tonight.

Back to the job in hand.  It is our lovely Tracey who has chosen this weeks challenge for Allsorts and it is

Flower Power

What a fantastic week last week with so many entries - I havent quite got around to finishing off my commenting but please be assured that I will finish it off tomorrow at the latest.  There were some amazing cards made out of dies and punches.  What a difficult task to choose a winner.

The card I have chosen to show you is this one

This was a card that I put together for the Spellbinders last Pick of the Day with the Di-Dlites and this card shows you 3 of those dies Garden Weave, Flower Burst and a Frame.  This was one of my favourites as I love the Flower Burst die as it has do much detail and could be used for so many different occasions.
A little ink and some pearl glue was all that was needed to complement the dies.

We have 2 lovely sponsors this week at Allsorts and they are
Ribbon Girl and you can find them at


My Heart Pieces

Thank you for your sponsorship.

Dont forget that I will be choosing a winner of the Blog Candy on Sunday so if you havent joined in yet it isnt too late.  You will find the information on post just before this one.

Sunday is when Mark and I go to see Strictly come Dancing in Birmingham so I hope that the weather improves.
Must dash now as I need to get to the studio in time for the 10am show.

Thankyou, as ever, for popping by and I hope that you all keep warm and take care if you have to venture out and about.

Bye for now
Jo xx

  15. This undoubtedly has a lot to do with the lower quantities of
    HGH in the body; Sytropin works to provide a pure
    dose of HGH that replenishes those levels in a very efficient way.
    There have been studies and observations by scientists and leading researchers how this human growth hormone can slowdown or even stop
    aging. HGH supplements are making it possible for adults to
    increase their HGH levels and reap both the anti-aging
    benefits and enjoy increased muscle mass along with decreased body fat.

  20. Her advice to avoid 'negative' people seemed like
    a good counter-example of an evil eye concept that I was accustomed to.
    The word, all that is said and taught belongs to Him.
    Later, in the medieval period astrolabes were specifically used as a navigating device to
    find the location of Kaaba in Mecca.

  21. All of the Prophet (saas)'s words, decisions and measures have led to good and positive results for believers as well as mankind. His spiritual munificence is so swift and extensive those not to speak of common people even the other saints are unable to understand its nature. Allah surrounds us with questions and problems to test us.
