From Autumn To Christmas























Hi all,
And welcome, it's a new month for Stamping Sensations and Penny black & More @ Allsorts challenges, if you didn't get the chance to join in last month's challenges these could be the ones for you.

At Stamping Sensations this month the theme is 'Warm Autumn Colours' So get out your browns, oranges, yellows etc............ I chose this sweet Sarah Kay image and coloured her in Autumn colours and the papers have apples and leaves on and just scream Autumn to me. To help the autumn colours along I distressed everything with Vintage Photo.  I really enjoyed making this card, even though my mojo keeps going walkabouts lately.

We have sponsorship this Month from
Imagination Crafts
with a £35 voucher












And of course, the Design Team have created some stunners to inspire you. Please do pay them a visit to their individual blogs - it means a lot to know you appreciate their efforts.



















And now onto my second challenge creation for Penny black & More @ Allsorts, where the theme is 'Get Ahead For Christmas' So you can use any of your Christmas Stamps for this challenge. And like the theme says enter our challenge and that's a Christmas card done, we all have so many we need to make.
I used one of my favourite PB Christmas images Caroling Trio, but sadly felt my mojo slipping away. I used one of our sponsors Sentiments from Flonz, it's from a Christmas sentiment sheet with a great assortment of sentiments on.

We have prizes from .........................................
Penny Black, FlonzCraft, Nicecrane, Marianne Designs















Now if you would like to be a GDT for us, all you need to do is make a creation to fit the theme following our rules.

Look At My Wellies!






















Good Morning bloggers, it's Saturday morning so It's time for a new challenge today at Allsorts.
This week is our lovely Tracy's turn to host and she would like to see 'Autumn'
Here is what I did, I used this cute Country Companion stamp, and decided to do something a bit different to what I normally do.  So usually I would cut out my nestie shapes and mount them onto my card with my image on.  Instead I cut the circles out and used the outside and discarded the centres to frame my image.  I used an embossing folder on the piece of brown card but couldn't quite capture it on camera.  Everytime I tried to lighten my card as it seems quite dark, there was too much glare, so no happy medium and it looks much better in real life.

Don't forget to head over to Allsorts for all the details of this challenge, and to check out all the fabulous inspiration from my very talented team mates.

Here are our sponsors for this week:-


£10 voucher


Recipe:-
Stamps - Country Companions,
Papers - Tilly Daydreams,
Colouring Mediums - Spectrum noirs, 
Tools - Grand Calibur, nesties, signature Dies, Crealies dies, sizzix dies, embossing folder, 
Embellishments - pearls, stickles,

A Stitch Up






















Good Morning bloggers, it's Saturday morning so It's time for a new challenge today at Allsorts.
This week is our lovely Sarah's turn to host and she would like to see 'A Stitch Up', so use form of stitching whether it's faux or real, or even an image that has something to do with sewing, I chose to do faux stitching on mine.  My backing paper is a patchwork and some of the patchwork shapes have little reels of ribbon, and thread on, then the heart paper has crossed stitched hearts on.
I used a Hanglar Stanglar image, I have a couple of these but never seem to use them, and I hate to see things not getting used.  I finished off with lace, buttons and satin flowers.

Greyfriars Bobby




Good Morning bloggers, it's Saturday morning so It's time for a new challenge today at Allsorts.
This week is our lovely Wendy's turn to host and she would like to see 'Based On A Film Title'

A bit of a sad film I chose I know, but it sticks in my mind, I saw it growing up and I remember crying at it.  But when it upsets your children it sticks in your mind more for that.  Bobby hasn't actually seen it and I wouldn't let him see it either.  You see he got it as a reading book at school, and I thought he might be OK as it wasn't the dog that died, nope Bobby cried nearly all way through, then he asked "why would somebody be so mean and write such a sad book for me to read",  aww bless him.

Kept my card masculine, just automatically started making it for a male, think it's because the film is based on a man and his dog, so a simple look for this one, I know not my usual style, not much in the way of embellies too.


Don't forget to head over to Allsorts for all the details of this challenge, and to check out all the fabulous inspiration from my very talented team mates.

Here is our sponsor :-


I used a Nicecrane image called A Dog Day which you can find here

Recipe:-
Stamps - as above, Sentiment by Flonz,
Papers - LOTV country gent,
Colouring Mediums - distress inks,
Embellishments - button, twine,
