March Challenge

Hello everyone, the last month seems to have flown by and already we are in March and hopefully for some of us, the promise of Spring so what better for a theme than:


************Springtime************

As always you can create whatever you like providing we can see a bit of Springtime in your make, be it the fresh colours of the season, flowers or even Easter cards..

The normal rules apply:

* You can enter up to three times.
* Use any make of stamp.
* Entries using a Penny Black stamp will be eligible for an extra prize draw.
* All entries will be eligible for our "In the Spotlight" feature.
* No digi images allowed.

* This challenge will close at midnight on 27th March.


Now for the best bit, all the lovely prizes on offer and this month we have a real star prize from a brand new sponsor HiFi Tower who are offering one of thier fabulous magnifying craft lamps as a prize.

Here's a little bit about them: HiFi-Tower is an online shop based in the UK. We sell all sorts of consumer electronics, along with home appliances for your house and garden! This magnifying desk lamp is very popular for crafting and useful for detailed work.

And of course our very own Penny Black who have just launched their Full of Surprises collection which are now in the stores (and there is one as a prize this month) along with the London Collection launched a few weeks ago, check them out here:


As usual, three prizes on offer from Penny Black........................

Another new sponsor this month who we are really pleased to welcome Addicted to Stamps, do check our the store as they have some fabulous stamps and loads of other inspirational and unusual goodies.


They are offering one lucky winner a $15 voucher to spend at their store.



And of course Sir Stampalot our regular sponsor for the winning entry using a Penny Black stamp are offering this cute stamp as a prize. Their delivery of the new collection Penny Black stamps have already arrived in store, along with new released from Woodware, Magnolia and the latest Magnolia magazine which is flying off the shelves. You can find all the new releases from all the major companies here..........
Now for some inspiration and this month we welcome Helene, one of my lovely Allsorts teamies as our Guest Designer this month who had made this adorable card for us..............
