January challenge

Welcome to Penny Black and More and our first challenge of 2014 and this month we are getting ahead with our romantic makes with the theme of........................

********Love is in the Air********

They don't have to be Valentine creations, they and can be anything along the theme of LOVE such as weddings, anniversaries or just for that someone very special.

Usual rules that you can enter three times and use any make of stamps, but can I please remind you as quite a few still forget:
  • The main and focal element of your entry must be a stamped image unless using a Penny Black stickeroo.
  • Digi images are not acceptable for our challenge.
Sorry to have to bang on about it but we hate having to leave messages telling people their work is not eligible for the fabulous prizes on offer. OK now on to those great prizes for this month...................
