Allsorts - blog hop

Today we celebrate our fourth birthday at Allsorts challenge.

So in time honoured fashion we are having a fun blog hop along with this week's theme which could only be one thing really:

********Happy Birthday********

My contribution to the hop is a gift basket, tutorial here. 

You should have arrived here from Wendy and after you have picked up the letter R, you are done and can go back to our challenge blog

Do leave a comment here before you leave, I have a couple of stamps up for grabs for one lucky winner.

SFTW - monochrome

A very late post today but I'm gonna blame the weather, it's gorgeous here!

Anyhow, new challenge at Stampin for the Weekend, themed monochrome. I used the image country mama from our sponsor Saturated canary, and folded a gift box.

Allsorts - true blue

This week at Allsorts the theme is True Blue. I made a gift bag with two glass bottles (used to contain Prima flowers) for a fantastic director that came to coach us in Snowflake Singers before the Nordic Championship. I filled the bottles with red tea and Canadian maple syrup - after I took the photos hehe - cause she's Canadian and loves her syrup =).

Allsorts - any sport

This week at Allsorts the theme is Any sport. And what better to choose for a true northerner than skiing :). But since spring is arriving even up here, I decided to make an early Christmas card, always good to have them :). Image is from Panduro, really cute but horribly forgotten way back in the drawer.

SFTW - buttons

time for a new challenge at Stampin for the Weekend and we want you to use buttons on your project.
Since I'm very fond of writing down things on post-its and random pieces of paper this note-holder fits me perfectly. All in one place :). I bought the post-its and the note-paper on Biltema and measured the holder after them so no template, just plain improvising :)

But I liked the outcome so much I made a couple of them :). Might show you the other ones in a later post.

Just a quick post to tell you that I'm absolutely over the moon!!!
We got the award Most improved chorus with 48 points more than last year's result and with a total of 604 amazing points we came in 4th at the Nordic Championships of Barbershop. I can still hardly believe it, we had a vision of maybe reaching 600 in the future. AND with that result our fantastic director got the title Master Director.

Allsorts - add some sparkle

This week at Allsorts the theme is to add some sparkle, and there is sparkling going on in all sorts of ways today (no pun intended hehe). Tonight I will be competing in the Nordic Championships in barbershop in Karlstad together with the fantastic barbershop choir Snowflakes. We intend to sparkle so wish us luck :).

My card for today is using a DP cut out, not a stamped and coloured image - gasp! ;) but it still turned out rather nicely.

And I also have a sparkling gift box using Black Floral from our sponsor.
