November challenge - Anything Christmas

Good morning and welcome to our November challenge and we have a theme that is a nice and easy one for this time of year.......................

********Anything Christmas********

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. If we do not comment on your entry it will be because it does not follow the theme, qualify under our rules, or because we are asked to sign in or provide additional data to comment. We do not want to be rude but we do want to be fair to those who do follow the rules.

Now onto this months prizes and first those from Penny Black..........

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.

A fun Christmas clear stamp set and two Slapstick stamps.

Crafts U Love  was formed in 2001 by Paul Baughton and Jenny Baughton. They are one of the largest stockist in the UK of die cutting and rubber stamp products as well as a wide range of general card making and scrapbooking products.

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 !
