The theme for ALLSORTS  this week has been chosen by me and it is


this is my DT card 

I absolutely love this image and I had so much joy colouring him up I have used Sepia tones the papers are from my stash I used my large scallop dies for the central circles and my punch for the snowflakes I coloured the image with a mix of markers, everyone who follows me knows I LOVE all animals, when I was younger I desperately wanted to own my own horse and eventually I did he was beautiful and called Timba we had many happy years together now he is a very happy memory, he was darker than what I have coloured this fella but what a joy this one is.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

My second card is for the reminder of our challenge at
the theme being
I have used one of my new Woodware Stamps of a Gnome this one is called Trying it Out For size which is one of the sentiments that come with the stamp.
I used my 8 x8 circle scallop card I the used my large scallop die to build up the centre I used the little snowflake stamp on the base card and I coloured the image with a mix of markers.

Two very different but equally lovely cards Lorraine, you can probably guess my top vote goes to the Horse and I do like it done in sepia tones.

First ponies are always special in our minds, mine was Blackbird, a mare and looking back as stubborn as an Ox, but I would hear non of it at the time. And with her eventually came the sadness that we've just been through with Ben.

Great Allsorts theme this week, will be a popular one I think.

Two beautiful Christmas cards Lorraine. Love that first one brings back such happy memories and the second is so fun with the cute gnome disappearing inside his oversized jumper- at least it will keep him warm.
Thanks also for linking up to Crafty Catz this week.
