My Lovely Supporters

12 Nov 2022


 I have rather a long belated post today, I missed posting my Allsorts and We Love Stamping DT cards last week, the reason being..... 

My brother finally got a hospital appointment for his hip replacement operation so I went to stay at mums until he returned home I had Jess and the house to look after but unfortunately I lost internet just for a change, lol.

My partner Dave bought a puppy while I was away she will be living with us in our new bungalow her name is Bella and she is a 12 week old King Charles, a bit of a handful, I am not sure if I can manage a puppy but Dave is totally in love and will be doing most of the work but I have started her training.

So without further ado this is my ALLSORTS DT card for this week the theme is Anything Goes with the option of adding a number I have gone for the Anything Goes option, I have used this lovely card fold the papers are actually card I added a Christmas topper, bow and gold stars.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges





Your entry can be for any occasion and we look forward to seeing your entries and if you choose to go with the numbers option how you will incorporate them into your creations.

Our prize this week is a £15 store voucher from our regular patron Stamp Addicts.  

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 Create and Craft TV as well as craft shows across the UK.

My second DT card is for WE LOVE SAMPING

the theme is 
this is my DT card using one of my older beloved Tilda stamps, I used the TH Clock die cut I added a snowflake and the little central parcel is a brad, the papers are from my CD, I added a sentiment, the image was coloured with a  mix of markers.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Simple as that, any type of Christmas creation which as always must have hand stamping (or digital) to reflect the theme as the focal element of your workWe still see a few regular entries with just a stamped sentiment on an otherwise non stamped piece of work, these entries are not eligible and in future will be removed.

Before I tell you about this months prize, we are really happy to introduce two new Design Team members Maxine and Faith, please join me in giving them a warm welcome to the team.

We have a bumper pack of At Home With Santa DP's, embellishments and stamps for this months prize and will split into two so each winner has a selection of all.
and finally I would like to introduce you to Bella

I would also like to thank you for popping by and leaving me some love especially as I am not being a very good blogger at the moment I just hope that you understand

Both cards beautifully designed Lorraine, love the fold on the first one- so impressive, beautiful traditional image and papers. The Tilda card is so pretty- lovely colour combo.
Good news about your brother's op- hope he recovers quickly.
Oh my - what a cutie Bella is, she looks like a little toy and so sweet and innocent!!! I know just how deceptive that look is- all healthy puppies get into mischief and can be hard work- but aren't they worth it!!! She will light up your life and bring you joy! Enjoy her!

HilaryJane said...

Sounds like you have been busy, I did look for your cards last week. Better late than never I say. Both your cards are great and that little puppy is so cute. You will soon be in love with her too. I assume your brothers op went well. Hope he makes a good recovery xx

Donna Ellis said...

Beautiful cards, Lorraine! Bella is darling, and how lucky for you that Dave will do most of the "hard work" in raising her to become part of the family. What is the fold called for your Allsorts DT card? It's very intriguing and makes for a lovely seasonal decoration! hugs, de

WOW! This is absolutely gorgeous. I love the design it looks so good with the lovely lantern. You will love Bella, we had a Cavalier years ago, she was the loveliest of natures. I can't believe I have neglected you for so long, I am afraid I will have to cut short my visit and not comment on each piece of work. I will see them though!
