August Challenge

Good morning everyone and welcome to our second challenge here at Penny Black at Allsorts. We had a fabulous start last month and want to say a huge thank you to everyone who joined in our Burst of Summer Colour theme with some absolutely stunning artwork.

We have another theme which we think you are going to really enjoy:
Glitter and Glitz

We all love our embellies so what better opportunity to pull out all those gems and glitters and get creating.

It's a pretty exciting time at Penny black this month as the new Christmas release stamps will be hitting the stores any time now. To be one of the first to get a preview of the wonderful new designs don't forget to pop over the the Penny Back web site where you can join the club for free. And the Penny Black design team are sure to come up with some great inspiration on their blog here.

This month there is even more reason to join our challenge as we have so many wonderful stamps to be won, here's what's on offer and as you can see, there's a set of the great new Betsy and Bluebell stamps, some real cuties and a touch of floral and elegance.

30-053 Betsy Bluebell 3910K Ice and Snow

40-012 Irises

4054K Gentlest kiss

The Design Team have created some great artwork again, please pop over to their personal blogs by clicking on their names and show them your appreciation for all their inspirational work.

Sorry I wasted your time. I did not far enough down. I don't own many Penny Black stamps. The stores close to me don't carry many of them. I guess I will have to get some.
