April challenge - Birthday's

Good morning and welcome to our April challenge where this month the theme is a nice 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 are a stamping challenge so 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 is Penny Black Stickeroos. But no digi images and entries using them WILL NOT be eligible for prizes. 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. 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.

Here are the lovely prizes from them this month, two stamp sets and a lovely paper pad............


Lets Create are a family run business with staff who offer friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic help and advice on the wide range of products ranging from card making to mixed media and scrapbooking. They have and an on line store as well as a shop in Lincolnshire where they run regular classes, workshops and free demonstrations days with many well known faces from the craft industry and Create and Craft TV, where Jo Channon the co-owner is also a familiar and friendly guest.

'be Creative!' who have just launched a brand new range of craft products. 'be Creative!' wich can be purchased from Once Upon A Stamp, they also have regular shows on Hochanda TV where you can see and purchase lots of their products. Their Facebook page also has regular products updates. The prize from them is a £15 store voucher.

Sizzix, there's no bigger or better place for craft materials, custom dies and machines that can die-cut, emboss and texturize many materials, including cardstock, paper, construction paper, fabric, faux fur, felt and foil plus much more.
