November Challenge

The first of a new month and a Monday as well, so what better start to the week than a new challenge.

But more importantly we all know what this means.....Christmas is next month.......scary or what, especially if you are like me and have not given it more than a passing thought when it comes to preparation and shopping.

So as I am sure lots of you are now beavering away at your Christmas crafting this months theme should fit in a treat............

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

What you make and how you interpret the theme is totally up to you, Christmas trees, Santa, presents, turkey, a lovely snowy scene, the options are limitless. As always your project can be anything, a card, gift box, l/o or something completely different, the only requirement is that the main feature on your card is a Penny Black image. Please note if that Penny Black element is not clearly visible, your entry will be marked as not eligible.

If you are looking for inspiration do pop over to the Penny Black Blog where there are daily updates, a gallery jam packed with ideas to inspire, the chance to share your own work and you might even get a mention on their blog as they spotlight entries from time to time.

As usual Penny Black have been very generous with prizes and here's what's on offer for this months lucky winners:

3914K Joy filled stocking



3915H Dear Santa & 3901E To all


40-016 Hedghog Birthday



3745K Token of love



Now on to some inspiration and we we are thrilled to have Emma as our Guest Designer this month, just look at the lovely card she has created for us, I love the colours Emma has used:



And of course this is the first month our new Design Team members are sharing their work with us all, so please join me in welcoming Ellie, Maarit, Mervi, Shirley and Zoe who along with the existing DT members, Helene, Jules and yours truly, have come up with some awesome work to inspire you.
