February - Anything Goes with the option of Tags

Good morning, time for our February challenge and this month we have a bit of a twist............

**Anything Goes with the Option of Tags**

Ideally we would love to see tags or tags on cards, but if tags are just not your thing then you can go with the anything goes option, but of course we must still see hand stamping as the focal element of your creation and NO DIGI images.

But those of you who do enter a tag or have a tag on your artwork will be entered into the draw again so a second chance of winning a prize.

Please ensure you check our challenge rules here before entering, it may save you embarrassment and make sure your entry receives comments from the team and is entered into the prize draw: We run our challenge for fun in our spare time. It is your responsibility if entering to make sure you check our challenge rules, it is not our responsibility to read your posts and remind you if you fail to comply. If you do not follow the rules we will simply ignore your entry.

Explore the creative world of Penny Black and see for yourself why our rubber stamps, stickers, beautiful papers for Scrapbooking, Cardmaking and Stamp Crafting are everyone’s favorites. Our products are designed to integrate style and colour for creating the best handicraft projects ever.

January winners

Good morning, time to announce the winners of our New Beginnings theme and we had some lovely entries and extend a special thank you to those of you who did follow the rules.

But sadly almost half of the entries were not eligible because they simply did not fit the theme, quite a lot of Birthday cards when we clearly stated they would not count, some we just did not know what the occasion was and some for things like Christmas which clearly is not a New Beginning or what the theme asked for.

So the only way the winners could be dealt with was the old fashioned way to put the eligible numbers into a cup and pick them by hand and these are the ones that came out for the prizes from:

Penny BlackSwedish House Crafts and uk..............................

Entry No 3 Christine a New Home card - not eligible as brought to my attention that everything is CD generated and not stamped
Entry No 10 Viv a New Baby card
Entry No 30 Gail Spring New Season card
Entry No 40 Pinky New Baby card

Please would you all mail me by Thursday 7th February with your names and postal addresses so I can post your prizes. Any prizes not claimed by that date will be forfeited and no alternatives offered.

I will be back on Sunday with our new challenge.
