Blog Hop day has arrived!!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US!! This week is our 104th Challenge at Allsorts and we are celebrating with a Blog Hop....yeehah!!
Our sponsor this week was our very first sponsor two years ago, Sir Stampalot and they have given a beautiful set of stamps for the lucky winner.
As you will have seen from the other DT girls posts we are all offering prizes of our own. I have a CD for the comment chosen at random. I have the Polkadoodles Paper Boutique II Creative Christmas.

It may be slightly early for some of you to be thinking of Christmas I know but I am a firm believer in the Scout Motto "Be Prepared" I will be preparing one of you for a fabulous crafty Christmas lol
I am last on the hoppity hop list and you should have come to me from louise and now its time for you to head back to the Allsorts blog with your entry :o) The details of where to email your answer to is on the birthday post.
Our theme for this week is set by the fabulous Brenda and she wants you to take inspiration from this picture....
oh how I wish I were there, it has been a cold and wet week here in the Highalnds and I am ready to feel a bit of sun on my face again. Mind you looking out the Panda household window this morning I see it won't be today!
My card this week is stamped with the gorgeous Sugar Nellie stamp and it reminds me of myself and my little brother's trips to the beach as kids :o) There are also a few tiny shells on there with some glossy accents on the rock pool
So please join in the beachy fun this week and good luck with all the prize draws :o)

Baby card....

Sooooo many people I know having babies just now!! I made this one for a friend who had her son at the same time as I was having Lily. Her little girl came into the world and few days ago so I made this and knitted a wee cardi for the wee toot :o)

The papers are K & Co. The peachy layer is embossed with roses on the bottom half and swiss dots on the top half. Fower punch is EK success. All the bits and pieces are from stash :o) I used the rest of the papers to make another pram card but its not finished yet, back with that one tomorrow lol

This week Helen (mummylade) has set a fabulous challenge: Stamp A Lot, you have to use three different stamps! I wanted to do something a wee bit different for a change so I made this little bag using the french fry box template from Mirkwood Designs. The paper is Funky Hand Rainbow Polkadot download available here There are some gorgeous colours and as always they are fabulous to work with. The image and sentiments are from a wee clear set I bought years ago, I think they might have been 99p!!
