February Challenge

Good Morning and welcome to our February Challenge.

This month we are inviting you to Play Bingo.................but with a little twist as I have come up with a colour bingo grid........i thought it would be fun to try something a bit different and I would love to hear what you think to the idea. The same principal applies where you choose a line going in any direction and then work with those three colours.

You can make just about anything you want providing it has a line of the bingo colours and remember:

* You can enter up to three times.
* Use any make of stamp.
* Entries using a Penny Black stamp will be eligible for an extra prize draw.
* All entries will be eligible for our "In the Spotlight" feature.
* No digi images allowed.

* This challenge will close at midnight on 29th February.

Lots of you will know that the big USA trade show CHA which took place last week, always sees the launch of the Spring Collection of new Penny Black stamps. Here are a couple of sneak peeks of some of the beautiful cards on display in the Penny Black booth which give you a little taster of what is to come.

Stamps will be available from your local stockist in about three weeks time, but you should be able to pre order so you can be amongst the first to get your hands on them.

Already in store are the fabulous London Collection and if you have not already checked them out what are you waiting for as early indications are they are going to be in great demand with the upcoming Olympics which we here in the UK are so proud to be hosting. And we also have the Queens Diamond Jubilee which will be celebrated the first week in June, so it's going to be a busy Summer in London this year.

So it's over to you to go create and share your wonderful work with us.

Here are the three super prizes from Penny Black this month....................

Sir Stampalot our regular sponsor for the winning entry using a Penny Black stamp will have all the new stamps in store any time now, or you can pre order as soon as they pop up here and that's the place you will find everything new and inspirational for 2012.

Here is the prize from them this month............................

So many prizes this month and here is another from Letraset who are back with us this month. They are always coming out with new and innovative products so do keep your eyes on their website.

The prize from them is the Spring set of Aquamarkers, their fabulous watercolour system. These are my colouring medium of choice and I know if you try them you will be hooked as well.

And finally a little collection of ribbons, roses and stick pin embellishments I made one day when I was having a play, as you do.................

My lovely teamie from Allsorts Fleur is our Guest Designer this month and she has come up with this beauty using the Kraft, Blue and Green line....................

Yellow, black and white

I'm terribly sorry but I've made a mistake with my entry (#41). I use both traditional and digi stamps and had forgotten your no digi rule until right after posting. :( I tried to delete my entry with no luck. Please disregard my entry and I will make a note of your rule for future entries. Sorry for the inconvenience! Hopefully I can get another card done without digis to enter in this fun challenge!
