A few more blossoms and bows

Morning to you all, a rather rushed post here I'm afraid, with my mind on other things the last couple of weeks I almost forgot to schedule this post for today, so I will get straight to the inspirational pieces of artwork the Design Team have created following this months theme of Blossoms and Bows here.

I am sure you will agree they have done a fabulous job yet again and I do hope you will pop along to their individual blogs to show your appreciation for all their hard work.

April challenge

Time for a new challenge here at Penny Black and more and this month we have a bit of Springtime theme..............

********Blossoms and Bows*********

How easy is that as most of us like a few flowers on our cards and lots of us are ribbon addicts so we hope you enjoy the theme as much as the DT have. The basic challenge rules remain the same, the focal element of your creation must be a stamped image but you can use any make of stamp and as always any entries using a digi stamp will not be eligible for the prizes on offer.

And here are our wonderful sponsors for April, as always our grateful thanks to them all for their continued support of our challenge.

Next we welcome back Classy Crafts an on line store offering a huge range of products, latest arrivals include Spellbinders dies and Nellie Snedden stamps and don't forget that all new customers can get a 10% discount off their first order - use the code "first order" (no quotes) in the discount coupon box during the checkout process to claim your discount. (Offer excludes the Silhouette Cameo, and quotes for special orders).They are offering one winner a £10 voucher for an on line shop at their store. 

Next Crafty Ribbons a ribbon emporium, who are passionate about ribbons and want to share our fantastic ribbons with others. Our range of Christmas ribbons is second to none. Remember when we only used ribbons to add a bow to our hair, or tie up a birthday parcel ?  Ribbons are now a "must-have" for all types of craft.  Whether your project requires satin, sheer, silk, grosgrain, gingham or polka dot ribbon we have them all!  Lots and lots of different colours in a range of widths. Need a little bit of ribbon inspiration - then have a look at our projects on our blog,or visit our Inspiration blog,or maybe join in with us at our Challenge blog.  Go on, have a look... It's worth it !
