April challenge -Birthdays

Welcome to our April challenge and A Happy Easter, whatever you are up to I hope you have an enjoyable weekend.

Our theme this month is a nice and easy one................


Usual rules apply, you can enter up to three times, combine with other challenges, use any make of stamp......but can I please remind you.......

We must see hand stamping as the focal element of your artwork, it can be a stamped image/s, large sentiment or quote....... the one exception are Penny Black Stickeroos. But no digi images and entries using them WILL NOT be eligible for prizes or GDT spots. It so upsets us to see names come out in the draw who are not eligible for a prize because they have not read the rules. 

Now on to the fabulous prizes..............................

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. If you would like to be one of the first to hear about new products from Penny Black please click here to join the free club, plus their Facebook is full of activity and news.
