October Challenge

Good Morning everyone, I hope you are ready for our October challenge which is......

********Animal Magic********

Time to get out all those animal stamps, birds and bees and even fish and butterflies, we want to see them all. The only things you need to remember is that the focal element of your card must be a stamped image or sentiment - any make of stamp - but no Digi's are allowed.

We are still looking for Guest Designers, so if you like the idea joining us the logo below tells you what you need to do to be considered and please feel free to grab it and help us spread the word.

We have some wonderful sponsors again this month and a bumper collection of prizes, first up we welcome our regular sponsor Sir Stampalot, with a prize for the winning entry using a Penny Black stamp.

Sir Stampalot stock a huge range of Penny Black stamps including the new Christmas 2012 collection, as well as stamps and products from all the leading craft companies.

A warm welcome again to Crimson Cloud with the great prize of the winners choice of three sets of die cuts. A mother/daughter venture - a way to indulge our joint passion of cardmaking and crafting. We only sell products that we have tried, tested and love using. We have developed our own exclusive range of digital stamps, svg files and "Make Your Own Card" kits which reflect our styles of card making - and hopefully yours too!

Phew, what a list, but there's still one more to go and that is Joanna Sheen with a £10 voucher to spend at their on line store.

So now for some inspiration and first we welcome Amelia who was the lucky applicant chosen from the applications for our Guest Design for October, here is the lovely piece of work she has created for us using a favourite PB image:
