Allsorts - How does your garden grow

hope you all are enjoying yourselves in the sun. Before I head out I wanted to share with you my contribution to this week's challenge at Allsorts, themed How does your garden grow. And trust me - here it does!

I have a gorgeous rhododendron in front of the house and that inspired me to make this CAS card, using a digi from A passion for Stamps.

Allsorts - Ocean

Obviously my scheduled post didn't work properly cause this was supposed to go live yesterday :(.
Anyhow, yesterday was my turn to host the challenge at Allsorts and I set the theme to Blue as the Ocean. Free for your interpretation - it can be the colour blue, water, boats or beaches, check out the design team's creation for inspiration.
I made a pirate card using a Edwin image from Magnolia, sentiment computer generated.

Other challenges:

simply magnolia - anything goes
time for magnolia challenge - to the beach
midweek magnolias - anything goes

The Sugar Bowl - anything goes

Today it is time for a new challenge over at the Sugar Bowl. The theme is anything goes so don't hesitate to take out one of those gorgeous Sugar Nellie stamps and craft away.
I actually didn't even use a stamp and that is ok too :), I used a topper from the kit Summer joy. Funky kits naturally has the stamp - called Photographer - as well. But toppers are really nice for those nice and quick cards - or if you're just feeling lazy ;)

Allsorts - use a stamp

It is so nice that summer has finally arrived here in the north of Sweden. Yesterday was, all of a sudden, a day when the temperature went from +10 degrees to +20. It was amazing!

So today will be a garden day, but first this week's challenge at Allsorts, we want you to use a stamp, not a digi stamp but a regular one. So I took out a Magnolia (Tilda with peony) and made a lavender card with a summery feeling.

Other challenges:
Midweek Magnolias - anything goes
Tildas town - summer
polkadoodles - frame it

Allsorts - Flower Power

summer holidays are here even though the weather is not really co-operating. So to cheer up the situation the challenge is Flower Power at Allsorts.
I chose a gorgeous image topper from Scrapberry's together with a sentiment that I embossed with vintage embossing powder from Reprint. Clean and simple.
Sponsoring us this week is Let's Create, run by our talented team mate Jo.

Allsorts - satin and lace

this week at Allsorts the theme is Satin and Lace and I actually tried to hold back, otherwise I might have gone completely overboard with this :)
So I tried to stay in the shallow end of the pool, going for a simple image that I decoupaged slightly and finished of with a satin and a lace ribbon.

this is the original image I started with:

Allsorts - Vintage

this week at Allsorts is a personal favourite cause the challenge is Vintage. It can sometimes be a bit tricky to distinguish between vintage and shabby chic but at Allsorts we´re not picky ;)

I altered a napkin holder that I found in a thrift shop, covered it with paper from Maja Design and covered it with flowers. I forgot to take a before-picture but it had a moose cut out on both sides, that's why I put cover paper on the inside as well :)

The Sugar Bowl - anything goes

Hi and welcome to a new challenge at The Sugar Bowl, and yes I got to continue as a DT for this wonderful challenge blog :)

You probably know the drill by now: you have to use a Sugar Nellie image and you can win up to 4 SN digi images if luck is on your side.

The challenge for June is Anything goes and I used Cherry Pip as my image of choice. Adorably cute with her bow and hand bag.
