Stampalot July Challenge

At last I think it's safe to say "Happy Summer" and a really big welcome to you here at Stampalot where it's time for a brand new challenge.

Where does the time go, it does not seem long since I posted last months challenge, but at least we have seen a change in the weather in the UK and it looks like Summer has eventually arrived and hope everyone is enjoying the long warm days.

In my post yesterday when I announced the winners for June I said how thrilled we all are to see so many of you supporting us, June was a mammoth month for entries and the number of you signing up as followers is also increasing day by day, so we must be getting something right.

So what do we have in store for you this month, well as it's summer, the holiday season is almost upon us and the children breaking up from school this month we thought we would go all seasonal with:

Lazy Hazy Days of Summer

We all have different ideas of what this time of year means to us and how we like to spend our time, we we want you to share your take on the Summer season.

As always you can submit up to three entries providing each is a different type of project and combine your entry with up to five additional challenges. Our challenge rules are on the sidebar which include important information how to link your work and we would ask that you take a few moments to read them before you enter your work, that way life is easier for us all.

Yet again there is the chance to win another fantastic prize from the very generous guys at Sir Stampalot. Here's what's on offer for one lucky winner and of course there will be another Top 3 who get to display our special blinkie on their blogs.

1 x Stampress
6 x Patterned rollagraph wheels
3 x Additional coloured ink cartridges
6 x Molly Blooms stamps from the debut Summer Collection by Clare Rowlands

The Design Team have really embraced the theme again and come up with some fabby inspiration to set you on your way. You can go direct to their individual blogs by clicking on their names and see how they created their artwork.
