April Challenge

A very Good Morning to you all and welcome to our April challenge here at Penny Black and More. 

Before I tell you about our new challenge I have some news to share......................our little team has grown and I am so pleased to introduce you to our three new DT members Katherine, Linda and SusanThey are all Penny Black groupies like the rest of the team and like the existing DT's all have their own unique style of crafting so lots more inspiration on offer. Please join me in giving them a very warm welcome.

So on to this months theme which is one I think lots of you are going to enjoy...........


********** Oh so Cute **********

Note added 5th April: A few entrants see to be having difficulty with the definition of 'Cute' or that the word is perhaps getting lost in translation, so I thought I had better explain that we are thinking along the lines of all those cute stamps you love working with, hedgies, mice, cats and and dogs, sweet little girls and boys, teddy bears and so on.

As usual your entry can be anything you like so long as it follows the months theme and fits the few basic rules listed on our sidebar. Please remember you can use any make of stamp but strictly no digi images.

Lots of prizes on offer again and first is our very own Penny Black. Have you signed up to their on line newsletter yet so you are one of the first to hear all the news and latest stamp releases as well as loads of inspirational ideas for using their products.


 

Three super prizes from Penny Black.....................







We are very pleased to welcome a new sponsor this month, Joanna Sheen  who is offering..................
