Next, a winners choice of 4 digital images from  Ruth Hamilton Design

The next prize is a £12 voucher for digital images from the winners choice of store and has been kindly donated by a crafter who knew Kath, she did not want to be named but wants to help make this a special challenge - thank you for your kindness.

Canary Bird Rose was Kath's favourite Chocolate Baroque stamp, this will be for a winner who follows the Paper Pieced Flowers option.

Kath also loved her design papers so we have an 8 x 8 paper pad

Allsorts Challenge #640 - ATG/ For The Love Of Your Life

 Hi Crafters,

It's time to share another project for the new challenge at Allsorts this week.

I have made some ATC's this time.

The background was created using Distress Inks with a little sprinkle of Shabby White Embossing Enamel from Stampendous and then heat set. My 'loving' couple are a Silhouette Cameo cut file and the ticket stamps and dies are from Whimsy Stamps. I heat embossed the sentiment onto some vellum and stapled this in place across the ATC's.

We have a fab prize for the lucky winner...

Three digital images of the winners choice from Ruth Hamilton Designs
and a Beautanicals Large Tulip Stamp

Please take a look at the beautiful creations from the rest of the Design Team HERE.

Have a great day!
