Happy Birthday Allsorts! 4 Years Old Today!!

Hello Everyone!

Happy Birthday Allsorts!

As you caN see today is Allsorts Birthday and the Team are celebratiNg with a fabulous Blog Hop aNd there are lots of crafty prizes to be had.

You need to pop over to the Allsorts Challenge Blog to find out how to play the blog hop (it is really easy!)
The theme for the challenge this week is very appropriate

Happy Birthday!
aNd this is my project for you to have a peep at .................... 

I am particularly pleased with this project as it is using our fabulous New raNge of stamps from our shop ~ Let's Create. 
The maiN image aNd the corNer are from the set Sealed with a Loving Kiss.

This oNe is Wild Flowers

 This oNe is VictoriaN Frame
I used this one for the greeting and I stamped it onto shrink plastic and then shrunk to this size.and the sentiment was also used  die                                                                      

This one is Victorian Pleasures

This one is Rosetta

and this one is Labelled with Love

 all images are a lot bigger than
what is shown on the froNt sheet as we had to make room for the header and footer.
I would love to hear what you think about the designs and if anyone is interested in purchasing a set please email me on with your details and I can get in touch with you and post a set to you.  Our website is being worked on at the moment but its not quite ready. Each set in £10.99. 

If you pop over to Brenda's blog on and she has posted a couple of stunning designs working with the new stamp range.

At the eNd of the challenge this week everyone that has commented on my card will be in a draw and I will  pick a winner.  I have a set of our stamps - which will be your choice - coming your way.

There are lots of other prizes to be won from the Allsorts Challenge site and from the other members of the design team blogs.

If you are in the area I will be at the Sincerely Yours Show in Lincoln on Sunday, if you are there please pop and say hello.

I hope that you all enjoy a lovely BaNk Holiday weekend aNd the weather improves.
Thankyou for popping by and I hope that you have found my letter for the blog hop!!!
Bye for now

  1. I recognise that image I believe Jo !!

    Really like your use of it and the soft distressing round the edges with a spot of Frantage as well I think. I can certainly recommend the stamps and their excellent quality and versatility.

    Have a good weekend, lets hope the weather is kind to us all.
