July challenge

Welcome to another new challenge here at Penny Black and More and this month we would like to see:

........ Summer Blooms ........

As always you can create anything you like, be it a card, tag, gift box, l/o and so on, all we ask is that flowers are the predominant feature on your work and of course it's a stamped image. Remember, no digi images are allowed but you can use any make of stamp and if you use a Penny Black stamp you will be eligible for an extra prize draw. And all eligible entries will be considered for our In the Spotlight feature where we highlight two crafters and their blogs.

We have lots of fabulous prizes on offer again from our wonderful sponsors, just check them out.......................

In case you missed the news, Penny Black have some fabulous new  stamps  which can all be viewed here, if you like cute, backgrounds or florals, they have something for  you  and there are some stunning new butterfly stamps. It's wise to sign up to their on line newsletter as you will get notifications of all new releases ahead of time. Three great prizes from them this month.............

Sir Stampalot are our regular sponsors of the winning entry using a Penny Black image.

They stock a huge selection of Penny Black stamps along with many other leading brands such as Hero Arts, Magnolia, Molly Blooms, Magenta to name a few, as well as carrying a massive selection of die cuts, Design Papers, if fact they are the one stop store for all your crafting needs. Here the prize from them this month.........

We are pleased to welcome back Letraset who are offering a set of Prom Marks to one lucky winner.
