Happy Birthday Allsorts!!!

Morning peeps :-) I'm off work for a week now, yippee. I am planning lots of cleaning (oven, fridge that sort of thing), some trips out and about with the boys, lots of reading and of course, a bit of crafting ;-) 

Today is very special for us at Allsorts as it is our 5th Birthday! It's been a fabulous five years and it's wonderful to see all you lovely crafters joining in each week, many who have been with us from the start and it's all of you who make Allsorts such a success. Plus of course our fabulous sponsors and talented Design Team, a huge thank you to you all.

In time honored fashion we are having a Blog Hop, loads of prizes and a fabulously easy theme of................... 

******Happy Birthday****** 

Here is the card I made for our special birthday challenge this week. I have used a vintage image from one of our regular sponsors, Nicecrane Designs...

 
 Showing the inside of the card...
 

Supplies:
Image & sentiment - from the Sweet Birthday Cards set from Nicecrane
Paper - Promises from LOTV
Buttons, ribbon, pearls & flowers - stash
Other -  Spellbinders Floral Oval die, Spellbinders oval die, Memory Box Alphabet Soup die, Quickutz corner die, brown chalk inkpad, kraft cardstock, Star Dust Stickles

Now back to the important Blog Hop info! If you are already following the Hop you should have arrived at my blog from Tracy Mouse. Lots of you will be familiar with a Blog Hop but just in case here's how it works, following the list below Hop to each DT's blog, leave them a comment.....that bit's important as each DT will be doing a draw from comments on their blog's for an extra prize, collect a letter from each DT's blog and using the grid below make two secret words and mail them to Brenda to be in with the chance of winning a fab prize! I hope I have made my letter Krystal Klear for you to find ;-)

Here is the grid which you need to fill to make two words using those you collect from the DT's own blogs and we have given you one letter to set you on your way:
