February challenge

Welcome to another challenge here at Penny Black at Allsorts and a bright new theme:

Say it with Flowers

Just about anything goes here as long as we can see a flower or two and of course a Penny Black stamp or Stickeroo as your main image.

On that point, we have noticed a few creeping in with no Penny Black image so please make sure your entry fits the rules........after all we are not called Penny Black at Allsorts for nothing........... and who can resist their stamps anyhow ? We always try to leave a note for any who do not use a PB image but this takes the DT a lot of time when they could be visiting other blogs, so in future we will just add a note alongside the name on Mr Linky.

And a note about the closing date for this challenge, as it's February and a short month, the last time for entering will be Midnight GMT on 24th of the month, when Mr Linky will close.

January was a great month for us, we have lots of new followers and so many of you joined in our Blog Hop which was great fun, thanks to everyone for making it all such a success.

As usual we have prizes galore and are thrilled to have another new regular sponsor..............



.............Letraset who are offering a set of Aquamarkers to one lucky winner. AquaMarkers are a dual tipped water based, pigmented ink marker with the advantage of being water soluble. They can be easily blended, even when dried, giving the effects of water-colour paint but with the convenience of a marker. The water colour quality of the markers makes an ideal accompaniment to an artist's tool box, providing a clean and convenient alternative to water colour paints.

And our regular sponsor:


PB stamps who are offering a lifetime 15% discount for products purchased from their store, it you have never visited them you don't know what you are missing.................new stamps, old stamps and even discontinued stamps.


The of course our very own Penny Black who are giving away these four lovely stamps.....


And just the one more, to keep the momentum going we will again be selecting one of the new followers who link up as a follower between now and the closing date of this challenge and they will receive a mystery prize........you can bet it will include something Penny Black...........
This months Guest Designer is Debs from our sister challenge Allsorts and she has created this lovely card.......


The DT were mega thrilled to have been given the opportunity to work with Aquamarkers.......for some of them a brand new experience......to create their work this month. They have thoroughly enjoyed using them and can't sing their praises enough, just take a look at the fabulous creations they have come up with to inspire you..............

  16. I thought I left a comment, but guess I'm wrong and I'm glad I came and checked. I am so inspired by the DT cards and the time you took to leave a comment on my blog. There are a lot of people who have joined the challenge and I know how long it takes to leave a comment. Thank you for a great challenge, wonderful inspirational cards and communication.
