November - Flower Power

Good morning Peeps and welcome to our November challenge where this month our theme is........

********Flower Power********

I don't think there is a shortage of floral stamps in our crafty stashes so we hope you will ink some of them up and join in the fun. As always you can use any make of stamp and enter up to three times, but we must see hand stamping as the focal element of your artwork, this means:

Stamping must be the central point of attention and interest

The one exception are Penny Black Stickeroos, but strictly no digi images. 

Thanks to the continued support of our wonderful sponsors there are again lots of lovely prizes to be won starting off with of course Penny Black themselves............. 

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.
