Week 203 - A Passion for Flowers

Welcome to another challenge here at Allsorts where it's my turn (Brenda) to host the weekly theme and to also say a huge thank you to everyone who joined in Helene's theme last week, it certainly seemed to appeal to you all and there were some awesome entries, do go check out her winners post to see if you were lucky.

Now for this weeks theme which is........

********A Passion for Flowers********

A pretty obvious one from me I'm afraid as I make no secret that I love my flowers, but I know lots of you do as well so myself and the DT are really looking forward to seeing all your pretty creations.

We have two fabulous sponsors this week, first up is A Passion for Stamps offering one lucky winner four images of their choice.

And our second sponsor is The Ribbon Girl who have a £10 voucher on offer to spend at their store

This weeks theme is a bit of a double challenge, as a few weeks ago I asked the DT if they would like a challenge of their own and of course they were all up for a bit of fun so I sent them all a little kit pictured below so they could all add their own spin along with their own choice of image.

DP's and embellies from MME Bluebell collection, TH Iron Gate, Petals from Tonic Pick of the Bunch Rose punch and stamp set, Pick of the Bunch Domed Window, Ribbon and String, Gemstones.

I am sure you will agree that the DT have all done a sterling job with their kits and I really hope you will pop along to their individual blogs to show your appreciation for the work they put in every week bringing you the challenges. A weekly challenge is always a little harder that a monthly one and I would like to take this opportunity to extend my own personal thanks to each of them all for being such a great team to work with.

In addition to kit Butterfly image from A Passion for Stamps
