October Challenge

Good Morning all you crafters out there, I hope you are ready for a brand new Challenge...........and there's a bit of a twist this month.

As we are welcoming our new DT members I thought we would do something a bit special to celebrate so there are even more opportunities to win a prize and have your work up in lights on our blog, so read on.

When I posted last months winners yesterday I also announced the names of our new Design Team members who will be sharing their first DT work with us in November. I am really looking forward to working with them all and I know that along with the existing DT members and Guest Designers, they will inspire you with their work. But you don't have to wait till then to pop along and visit them, there are links to all their personal blogs on the sidebar.

For those of you who have not visited them yet our super sponsors Penny Black have made some great updates to their new blog, it's full of inspiration and the perfect chance to get involved in all things Penny Black. You might also like to check out their Art Director Elizabeth's brand new blog here. Some of you will remember Elizabeth from her guest DT spot at Allsorts back in May and I am pleased to say you will be seeing some more of her right here shortly.

So first things first and this months theme:

Colours of Autumn

I know there's a lot of it about in blogland at the moment and I'm one of the culprits, but it's such a beautiful time of year with all those rich oranges, golds, reds and browns it seems such a shame to miss another opportunity to use the wonderful inspiration Nature provides.

Now for the twist. As well as our four prizes that Penny Black have so generously provided again and our Top 3 that will be announced as usual at the end of the month, there will also be a weekly winner selected by Random Org.

This is how it's going to work, at the end of each week (8th, 15th and 22nd) all entries from the past seven days will go into the draw for a mystery prize which will be announced here and the winners name and work will be published on these dates.......or as soon after as I can organise. You can enter every week if you like as long as it's a different piece of work and every entry from the entire month will go into the final draw on the last day of the month. So you could have four chances of fab is that !

So here are the prizes for this month:

3 weekly prizes......I thought a bit of mystery would be fun

And the monthly prizes:
4014K Hand Mailed

40-003 Winter Song

3993K Before the Snow

3765F Pom Pom and 3735D Holiday Cheer

Now for some inspiration to set you on your way and here is what the design Team have come up with, there are links to all their personal blogs if you click on their names.








Edited 2nd October - I must have had a real dizzy moment last week when I did the photos for this months prizes, because when I was sorting stamps today I came across several Christmas ones which I had intended as prizes this month......more use now than January eh ? So anyone who looked yesterday and saw the prizes, I've just added the correct ones, it's me going slowly mad, not you.

Winner week 3

Hello everyone, hope your weekend is going well.

Just a really quick post..................I am running all late this weekend, my daughter is on her way to the Big Apple on a school trip as I write, so last night sort of disappeared rather quickly. And with it being half term here in the UK, I will have my youngest granddaughter to keep occupied this week, so my craft room is likely to be taken over........we have Christmas crackers on the agenda along with some more cards.

But enough waffle from me, this weeks winner is what you are all waiting for and I am pleased to reveal that Mr Random Org has picked:

And here is Berit's card, please mail me with your full postal addy so I can get your prize off to you, I'm not sure which Country you are in, but hopefully it won't take too long to reach you.

You still have a few more days to enter this months challenge where there are some super stamps to be won.

Winner week 2

A very good morning to you all, how's your week been ?

It's been decidedly chilly here in the Cambridgeshire Fens, yet the leaves are still hanging onto their green hues and those beautiful Autumnal colours we usually expect to see by now are slow to develop. It all goes with the rest of our strange weather this year I guess. But looking at some of the pictures on your blogs, especially our friends from across the pond, your season is in full swing and looking absolutely beautiful and providing wonderful inspiration judging by your entries this week.

But I know you are waiting to hear who us our winner is of this week prize provided by our sponsor Penny Black, so without further ado this is the name Mr Random Org., has chosen this week:

Congratulations Heidi, please mail me with your full postal addy. And here is Hedi'ds lovely card.

Week one winner

Good Morning peeps.

So what ever was Mr Blogger up to yesterday ? From what I read lots of you had the same problems as well, no worrying was that ? I do hope us frenetic crafters aren't getting too much for him to cope with. Things do seem improved this morning so fingers crossed it was just a blip.

As promised I am here with the winners of last weeks Penny Black candy and I can announce that Mr Random org., has selected:

Tracy aka Craftnut

Well done Tracy, please mail me with you post addy so I can get your prize off to you. Here is Tracy's lovely card.....I just love that poppy stamp and the elegant card Tracy has created with it.

And don't forget, there will be a winner each week this month and you can enter each week if you like, as long as it's a new piece of work and of course all entries will go into the pot at the end of the month as well. So four chances of winning this month, how cool is that.

And a reminder to you all that there is loads of inspiration to be had at Penny Black's revamped blog, do hop over and feast your eyes on the work on display.
