October challenge - Get ahead for Christmas


Welcome to our October challenge plus some exciting news which I will tell you about right away. 

As well as our October challenge we are going to be having a fab candy giveaway later this month, in fact there will be quite a few prizes to be won, so we would love it if you can help us spread the word by sharing the logo below on your own blogs and linking it back here so everyone can join in the fun. I will be back bright and early on 12th October with more news, prizes and how to enter.


Now for our October theme which is..................

******Get ahead for Christmas******

I know lots of you are already well into your Christmas cards and others like me need a gentle nudge so it's the perfect opportunity to join in. Usual rules apply, you can enter up to three times, combine with other challenges, use any make of stamp, but no digi images and we must see some stamping as the focal element of our work. Any entries failing to meet the rules may still receive comments from the DT but will not be eligible for the prizes on offer.

Again lots of awesome prizes from our wonderful sponsors and don't forget that every month the Design Team select one person from entries using a Penny Black stamp to join us as a Guest Designer..............

Their products are designed to integrate style and colour for creating the best handicraft projects ever. They also have a great club here, membership is free and you will be one of the first to know all the latest news from Penny Black. Three lovely Christmas stamps to help you along your way................
