May challenge

Welcome to out May challenge with some more great prizes up for grabs and a new theme which this month has a bit of a double take................

*******Sew Special********

It can be some stitching on your creation be it real of faux, something for that someone 'sew special', or it can incorporate both, the choice is totally yours, all we ask is that you use a stamped image as the focal point of your creation or a Penny Black Stickeroo, stamps can be any make but please remember no digi images as entries using them will be discounted from the prize draws.

Our lovely sponsors

Lots of fabulous prizes on offer again, first three from  Penny Black who have recently releases some great new stamps which you can check out here.

We are pleased to have Crafts U Love with us again this month, they sell a huge range of dies including all the latest releases, so do pop on over to their store and take a look at their huge selection. Their prize is a £15 voucher to spend at their store.

Next up is another regular sponsor Flonzcraft, if you are not familiar with their stamps then you must check out their fabulous range of quality Vintage inspired images at extremely good prices. They are offering one lucky winner a $20 spend at their store as well as a 12% discount to entrants of our challenge - just add "Penny Black and More entrant" in the comment section when placing your order.

And of course there is as always an extra prize for the entry selected from those using a Penny Black image !

They will receive this little collection of ribbons and gems all from Pretty Little Ribbons plus some beaded pins and....................they will also be invited to be our Guest designer in July.

Again we have two Guest Designers, first is the lucky person selected from our March entries, Kaisa alias Tirpuunen in Blogland which she tells me translates to Little Bird which I think is lovely as is her pretty card....

I used a pen for my stitching as I have no sewing machine but I did use a Penny Black stamp :)
