March challenge

Time for our March challenge here at Penny Black and More, lots of wonderful prizes on offer again and what we think is a real fun theme....................

******** So Sweet********

Now I wonder how you will interpret that one, sweet images, sweet food, sweet animals, we can't wait to see your take on the theme.

You can enter up to three different cards or projects and use any make of stamp or Penny Black stickeroo but please remember we do not allow digi images and any entries using them will not be eligible for the prizes on offer or our Guest Designer spots.

Penny Black invite you to explore their creative world and see for yourself why their rubber stamps, stickers, beautiful papers for scrapbooking, cardmaking and stamp crafting are everyone’s favourites. Their products are designed to integrate style and colour for creating the best handicraft projects ever. Two great stamps to be won.....................

FlonzCraftn are a small family-owned design and craft company from New Zealand, a very small country where all people are great neighbours. We work hard for our work and store philosophy to reflect that in our company. We will never be ashamed of our products. Our main goal is making and selling rubber and clear stamps and we have and unique collection of stamps that you can not find anything else.

Crafty Ribbons is a ribbon emporium, we 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 !

We are so sorry to tell you that Crimson Cloud are closing down this month, they have been one of our lovely sponsors for so long and will miss working with them and would like to take this opportunity to thanks them for their support of Penny Black and More. They have an on line clearance sale which has just started and will run until 31st March, so please do pop over there and see what bargain you can find.

Now for some inspiration and are pleased to welcome two Guest Designers this month, first is Carla who was selected from last months entries and has made this lovely card to share with us all.....................

And this is what the Design Team have come up with to inspire you.................

As lots of you will know Penny Black have recently released their Happy Everything collection of stamps and dies, you will find them all by clicking here. I have made three cards to showcase some of them, however those I selected were mainly floral so the link to the theme is a little tenuous but I have tried to draw that in with my choice of computer generated poems and quotes.
