January's Inspiration

Good morning and welcome to our mid month post where the Design Team have lots more inspiration to share following this months 'Anything Goes' theme and as always there are lots of prizes to be won from Penny Black and our other lovely sponsors. So please make sure you join in to be in with a chance of winning.

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. 
Coming soon
