Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

I do hope all Mother's had a wonderful day yesterday.

I have just finished a card for the Allsorts Challenge, but I am not sure now if it fits the theme.
Well we shall see if it comes under sweet treats or not.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
I started by stamping the Allsorts stamp that was a freebie with a Stamping Magazine with my Misti.
I tell you it makes stamping so easy
especially as I suffer with my hands, and drop things so easily.
I tell you I have stamped many a card in the past and then dropped the stamp block and ruined a project.
I then coloured my sweets with Pro-markers.
The sentiment was also a freebie with the same Magazine.

Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
They really make my day reading them.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 

I would  like to enter this into the following challenges.

Great card Jenny - fits the bill perfectly! And I'm so with you about the wonders of the Misti! I have the new Misti magnetic corners on their way to me - so will no doubt be writing about those within the coming couple of weeks!

Morning Jenny, Oh Wow !! this 'Allsorts' card is fantastic, did you have a box in front of you whilst making this card for the colourways, they look fabulous, you should definitely win this challenge, and they are a 'sweet treat', I love the brown liquorice ones mmmmmmmm.

It's brilliant Jenny, an 'allsorts' card for the 'Allsorts' challenge...very apt! Might be needing to 'borrow' this idea...O/H is a big allsorts fan!

Ellibelle said...

Yes, this definitely fits our "sweet treats" theme at Allsorts, and they are some of my favorite candies too! Fantastic card and fun sentiment to go with it. Thanks so much for joining us at Allsorts!

Perfect Jenny, a totally fabulous creation and the colours are perfect, did you buy box to copy lol. Brilliant design too and showing my two favourites, the spanish roll with the white centre and the one with the hundreds and thousands on.
I have just received my Hampton Art perfect stamp tool and I am loving that too.
Have a great week.

Joan said...

What a sweet! Fun card, I must have mussed that magazine. Thanks for your tip about using picassa for editing, will try it. Like you, I suffer with difficulty holding things and have found the Misti the best thing ever!

MaryH said...

I think your card is perfect for a Sweets Challenge. Love all the cute little images, with your perfect coloring. Also loving that sentiment - again, perfect with the images. Good for you on the Misti, I think it helps if you have to restamp an image that wasn't so sharp on the first try. Good job on this one...TFS & Hugs

Karen D. said...

too cute...reminds me of my mom, she loved those!

Pamellia Johnson said...

Oh my gosh, how much fun is this! I love these candies, they are my favourite, especially during the holidays! Love the sentiment, what a fun play on words. A great card, can't help but smile! hugs :)

Mervi said...

My apologies Jenny, I thought I had commented on this card, but it seems I have not! I so love all those wonderful sweets colored and stamped all over! Makes for a wonderful background. I also love the shape of your sentiment mat. This is one sweet card my friend!! Hugs, Brenda
