January Challenge

Happy New Year to you all !!

And what better way to kick it off than with a new challenge and this month our theme is:

Love and Hearts

A great opportunity to make a start on the Valentine cards and perhaps try out some of the new goodies Santa delivered.

Just a little reminder that you can use any make of stamp, although no digi images are allowed. All qualifying entries are eligible for selection for our 'In the Spotlight' feature plus entries using a Penny Black image will also be entered into an extra prize draw.

Lots of fabby prizes on offer again so let me introuduce this months sponsors and first up we have Crimson Cloud.............

"We are a mother/daughter venture - a way to indulge our joint passion of cardmaking and crafting. We only sell products that we have tried, tested and love using. We have developed our own exclusive range of digital stamps, svg files and "Make Your Own Card" kits which reflect our styles of card making - and hopefully yours too!" Here's the super stamp they are offering, check out further down the great card Mel made using the same image..................
Next Sir Stampalot, our regular sponsor of the prize selected from the entries using a Penny Black image...........

They have a super spacious store in Peterborough as well as running an on line store where you can shop 24/7. Yo will also want to keep a regular eye on the 'Specials' section where their Sale is in full swing and there are are always great bargains to be had. Here is the prize they are offering...........................
And next some more great prizes from Penny Black.................... don't forget to join the club so you are always in the know about new products.
Here are the three prizes from them..................
As always the Design Team have produced some wonderful inspiration for you along with this months two Guest Designers and first up is Mel from Crimson Cloud with this great creation......


Next is my lovely teami for Allsorts Nicola with this super piece..........
