March challenge - Feature a Creature

Welcome to our March challenge, how quickly we seem to have arrived here but at least Spring should be just around the corner in our part of the world.

Our theme this month is...........................

********Feature a creature********

As always you can use any make of stamp and enter up to three times, but we must see hand stamping as the focal element of your artwork (a die cut Butterfly added to a card will not suffice to satisfy the theme), this means:

Stamping reflecting the theme must be the central point of attention and interest

The one exception is Penny Black Stickeroos, but strictly no digi images. 

As always some lovely prizes to be won...................

No photos of prizes this month as they are still en route from Penny Black in the States but what I can tell you is that there will be some from the lovely new Sweet Spring collection ..................
