Four days to go.....................

Hello everyone, in case anyone needs reminding and believe me the DT don't, they are all mega excited and counting the hours, it's only a few days until we kick off our brand new challenge on Thursday 1st July. So I hope you've got all those yummy Penny Black stamps inked up and at the ready.

I just popped in today to tell you about an additional 'prize' that's going to be up for grabs every month. As you know Penny Black are providing prizes each month for our lucky winners, but I thought a little something extra might appeal to you, so there are going to be Guest Designer spots on offer.

Yep, that's right every month one lucky person will be selected from those who have entered our challenge and invited to join the Design Team the following month as a Guest Designer.

So if you fancy having the opportunity to be part of our team for a month all you have to do in join in. See you all again on Thursday when the fun begins.

A huge welcome to the Official Penny Black at Allsorts Challenge.

I am so very thrilled that Penny Black has invited myself and Allsorts to work with them and create a brand new challenge dedicated to their wonderful world renowned stamps and products. And as a committed Penny Black groupie, I am equally thrilled that they have bestowed on me the honour of managing and setting up the new challenge which will incorporate our established and oh so talented Allsorts Design Team.

I would like to take this opportunity to extend a heartfelt thank you to Penny Black for making all this possible and also to Elizabeth, a member of the companies US Design Team, for working with me over the last few weeks to get everything organised. You have one very happy bunch of girls at this end who are all raring to go.

Penny Black has established themselves as one of the Worlds leading rubber stamp companies and the quality, elegance and originality of their products is well know to us all and their new release dates are always an eagerly awaited event. So make sure you don't miss anything and visit Penny Black's great web site where there is loads of inspiration in their gallery and you can also join in their club here so you are right up to date with new releases and other news. Plus they have a fab blog here again with great inspirational work from their design team.

Our challenge will be monthly and there are a few guidelines on the sidebar along with further information which you may like to familiarise yourself with before we kick off with our first challenge on 1st July.

As you might expect, all prizes will be Penny Black products provided by the company and I am doing my best to coordinate them with the great themes that are lined up. Plus we will have a Top 3 every month selected from all qulifying entries.

Myself and the Design Team are really looking forward to seeing you all join us on July 1st, but in the meantime I really hope you will join up as a follower so you don't miss any of the news.
