Now or some prizes from our fabulous sponsors and what a collection there is this month.........................

Our lovely sponsors

All Chrismassy to help you get those seasonal cards made

Penny Black are again offering three lovely prizes for three lucky winners. Their  web site offers loads of inspiration plus a good search engine to help you look for all the stamps you are after and their club lets you sign up for free so you are amongst the first to know when they release new products.

Crimson Cloud is a mother/daughter venture - a way to indulge our joint passion of card making 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! And the fabby prize 3 sets of die cuts of winners choice.

We welcome a new sponsor this month Nicecrane Designs who offer a huge range of high quality Vintage inspired design sheets and images to create and compliment all your crafting projects from cardmaking to scrapbooking. Designs range from Vintage fashion and animals to well known children's characters such as Peter Rabbit and The Water Babies with new images being added to the range on a monthly basis. The great prize from them is a $20 store voucher and as it's the witching month of October store owner Ignacio will be giving the winner an extra gift of two of his Halloween cones

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...
