August challenge

Morning to you all, this is a scheduled post as I am on my hols, so fingers crossed it pops up when it should.

Before I tell you about our new challenge I would like to introduce Sam to our team. Sam is a keen Penny Black stamper and has featured as our GDT previously so we thought she would be the prefect person to join the team on a permanent basis as we have been a member down for a few months now. I hope you will join me in giving her a very warm welcome.

So now for this months theme which this month is.................

******In the Garden******

As always you can create anything you wish so long as you follow the theme and the focal element of your card must be a stamped image........any make of stamps is OK........or a Penny Black Stickeroo. Just remember we do not permit the use of digi images and any entries using them will not be eligible for the prizes on offer.  You can enter up to three different cards or projects into each monthly challenge and can combine these with other challenges.

So now for some awesome prizes from our fabulous sponsors.................

Our lovely sponsors

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...
