December Challenge


Good Morning everyone, I hope you are all OK and your Christmas preparations going to plan........not long now.................. after weeks of looking forward to it, it's almost upon us and if you are anything like me, the panic sets in because all of those things you planned to do weeks ago still need sorting.

We have a really fabulous month in November and it was absolutely wonderful to see so many of you joining in the fun and we so hope you will find time to join us again this month, it's a really easy theme..................

Happy Birthday

You can use any make of stamp for your entry, but no digi images are allowed.

And don't forget to keep an eye out for our  special post on 20th December announcing our first two 'In the Spotlight' entries for November...........who will they be, it could even be you !!

Lots of lovely prizes on offer again and we are delighted to welcome a new sponsor this month .....................Scotch Tapes who are giving three sets of their new Restickable Tabs to one lucky winner which retail at £3.32 per pack. 

These double sided tabs are easy to use, will stick to any surface, remove cleanly and because they are clear  you won't see them when they are used for such things as hanging Christmas decorations. Best of all, when you are finished with them you can simply wash them in soapy water and they are as good as new.


And some more great prizes from Penny Black.................... don't forget to join the club so you are always in the know about new products.
And welcome again to Sir Stampalot, our regular sponsors for the special prize open to all entries using a Penny Black image. Their Peterborough shop and on line store really is a one stop craft haven and Freebie Friday is something not to be missed, their newsletter Smudges will give you full details of the latest giveaway every Thursday evening. And they have a huge selection of sale items here which is regularly updated and always a bargain to be had.

Here's the prize for that category..................
And some pretty ribbons, buttons and pins....................


And how about some inspiration and we have loads for you this month and first  up is our December Guest Designer Sue who has created these stunning pieces of artwork for us



And  Jill who until this week was one of my team members at Allsorts, but I am sorry to say she has just stepped down due to work and family commitments, but still made this lovely card for us..............











A very Happy Christmas to everyone from us all here at Penny Black and More.

  4. Oh boy, making a birthday card when I'm still not done with my Christmas cards is going to be a real challenge, but then again, I have an entire month to complete it, lol. Besides, the DT inspiration is definitely giving me a nudge in the right direction. Great work, ladies!
