November - Make someone smile

Good morning and welcome to our November challenge and this month we would like you to join us and..............

********Make Someone Smile********

What makes you smile when you receive a card ? I am sure that we all have different ideas of what makes a friend or a loved one smile and we would like you to share those happy smiles with us.

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 is Penny Black Stickeroos, but strictly no digi images. 

We have a bumper collection of prizes on offer again.

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 favourites. Our products are designed to integrate style and colour for creating the best handicraft projects ever.
