June challenge - Wings

Welcome to our June challenge and this month our theme is...............


Butterflies, fairies, birds, there are so many options and the choice is totally up to you, all we ask is that you remember...........

We must see hand stamping as the focal element of your artwork, it can be 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. 

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. 

Here are the three prizes from Penny I did search all through the prize box and seems we are a bit short on wings to match the theme, so how about some cute cats with balloons flying in the air, some rather funky looking flowers and as the Poppies are in bloom everywhere a lovely Poppy stencil.

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. 

Next our regular Robert Addams of Papercrafts, Roberts is well known for his innovative crafting CD's, recently he has developed a range of high quality metal dies designed to give a stylish and professional finish to any crafting project which are sold under the name of All Occasion Dies.  The decision was made to stay as a cottage industry in order to provide a sincere and personal service as well as concentrate on a small but very high quality range of products. We pride ourselves on our mail order service and orders received by 3.30pm are normally dispatched first class post the same day, we ship to the UK and there is no minimum order value and free postage.

A £15 store voucher from Kraftyhands who are renowned for their easy to use crafting CDs covering a wide range of occasions which can be used for cardmaking, scrapbooking and home decor projects.

They have showcased their products on Create & Craft and will be appearing on the new British Craft Network Internet TV channel in October. Their website address is
