Allsorts - 🧚🏻‍♂️ magical words 🧞‍♀️

This week at Allsorts it's time to be inspired by 🧝🏻‍♀️🧙🏻‍♀️ Magical words 🧚🏻‍♂️🧞‍♀️.
So I made a card and matching tag using some fairy clear stamps picked up on E-bay. Lightly coloured and glossed as focal point, didn't think it needed more decoration. They are really adorable.

Allsorts - Gingham, stripes and dots

Time for a new challenge at Allsorts and due to the current covid 19-situation we still can't send out any prizes so we are saving those for later, we do hope you understand and feel like joining in our challenge anyway. 
This week the theme is gingham, stripes and/or dots. I made a gift bag with dotted design paper as background. Cut out the name Eddie on my Silhouette Cameo and added some flowers, lace and a bow. It was supposed to be for my younger grandson's christening but it had to be postponed due to the Corona-situation, we'll see when that ceremony can take place (I'm a bit worried for the dress, a family heirloom worn for generations and he's growing every day...) 
But that's how the world is right now and christened or not, he'll be fine :)

🍭 Allsorts - Anything goes

Today we had planned a special challenge, running for a fortnight, with lots of prizes to celebrate our 11th Birthday. However, given the current Global situation we really feel that isn't appropriate, and then there's the question of posting prizes off which is very hard at the moment. So we are saving the prizes and can hopefully do something special later in the year.

Instead, Brenda set the theme to

********Anything Goes********

so as my DT project I will show you a set of gift bags that I made for a pair of guest coaches we had for our chorus. No flowers at all since I didn't want the bags to be too bulky for them to put in their hand luggage flying home, but music notes and swirls and I couldn't resist the butterflies :).

Allsorts - Butterflies 🦋

It is my turn to host the challenge at Allsorts and since we have now entered the month of May I figured it would be suitable to have a Butterfly 🦋 theme. I made a gift bag, using butterfly dies from ebay (the hearts are actually cutouts from the butterfly wings), some lace and flowers. To close the bag I used a mini clothes pin, covered with the same design paper as on the bag.
