Good afternoon Peeps, I'm running a little late announcing the winners for November, but what a splendid month we have had under our new name, a wonderful sponsor, so many good wishes from you lovely crafters and most of all an absolutely fabulous array of entries with you all embracing the Christmas theme and wowing us with your talents. So needless to say it again made our job very hard when it came to selecting the winners.

Please don't forget that Ingigo Blue are offering 10% discount on all purchases until 15 December, so there is still time to take advantage of this great offer from them.

But I can can now reveal the lucky peeps starting with the winners of the fabulous collection of goodies from Indigo Blue is............ drumroll................

Mid month reminder

Hello everyone, you certainly do seem to be enjoying our November Traditional Christmas theme and we are loving seeing all your entries. I think you must all be hoping to win those lovely goodies from our sponsor this month Indigo Blue.

But you don't have to wait to grab some Indigo Blue bargains because you can get a 10% discount on all purchases until 15 December, so the perfect opportunity to do your crafty Christmas shopping and also grab a few goodies for yourself as well. Just enter code SSNOV12 at checkout.

It's also a good time to tell you that we have made a slight change to our rules and you can now enter our challenge up to three times each month, these can be all cards or whatever you fancy. But we do still limit the number of challenges you can combine which is six including this one.

The design team are enjoying the theme equally as much and have come up with another host of lovely inspiration for you.

November Challenge

Good morning everybody, an exciting day for us all here at Stamping Sensations as we launch our very first challenge under our new name. 

I know lots of you saw my post a few days ago and we've had some really lovely messages of encouragement from so many of you and we would like to send a huge thank you for your continued support. So today the most important thing I need to do is tell you about the prizes this month and announce our November theme which is..............

******** Traditional Christmas********

We will still be having our popular Top 3 spot, but please remember to check out our rules especially that you can combine your entry with a maximum of 5 other challenges.

And there will still be great prize and over the coming months we will be featuring different sponsors............... was our idea to kick that off next month and already had some goodies prepared, however one of our new sponsors Indigo Blu really, really wanted to get involved this month so that means there will be two lucky winners this month.

It's a rather special month for Indigo Blu and you can read more about it here and here and you can even get involved and help this very worthwhile cause. Here is the wonderful prize they are offering:

Tree-MendousMr Fan-tash-ticFlitterGlu starter kit

The fabulous prize includes all of the following: 

1) Flitter Glu Starter Kit: Kit with everything you need to start using FlitterGlu - FlitterGlu, Phat Foam, Scoochy sponge, Easy peasy stamp cleaner, Flake

2) Mr Fan-tash-tic A5 Stamp: A5 rubber stamp (210x150) available mounted or unmounted. A Fan-tash-tic stamp ideal for making a card or present for that man in your life. Released in time to help promote Movember. Why not sponsor Alfie and Neil in the IndigoBlu Mr Fan-Tash-Tic team ?

3) Tree-Mendous A6 Stamp: A6 mounted (120mm x 120mm) Use as a background stamp for a variety of occasional cards

In addition to this fabulous prize Indigo Blu are offering a 10% discount to our challenge participants on all orders placed through their website between now and 15th December, just add code SSNOV12 at checkout.

And here's the little extra one that we prepared earlier:

Now for some inspiration for the Design Team who beaver away every month to bring you their artwork each featuring their own unique style of stamping and crafting. I could never make our little challenge so popular without their hard work and it would be really lovely if you could take a moment to pop along to their blogs and let them know how much their hard work is appreciated.

Exciting changes

A very good morning to you all, the day myself and the design team have been eagerly awaiting has arrived and I can now share some really exciting news with you.

Although it doesn't seem possible, in January it will be three years since our very first challenge was launched. That happened on my own blog as it was intended to be a one off, but because it was such a huge success I launched this challenge blog soon afterwards.

Since that time we have gone from strength to strength and gained an incredible loyal support network from all of you crafters, with so many coming back month after month to share your wonderful creations and for that I have to say a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge thank you. And over that time we've had very little change to the design team, which I think says an awful lot about the wonderful girls I am privileged to have working alongside me.

As you will see the blog has a whole new look and name, but apart from that most things stay the same, there will still be great prizes on offer and some exciting new sponsors.........I will be telling you more about them and introducing you to their wonderful products over the coming months.

If you are already a follower of this challenge blog then you need do nothing more to continue receiving updates about our challenges on your dashboard. If you are not already a follower then I hope you will sign up and join us.

There is also a new look logo at the top of this post to match our new header and hope you will grab it for your own blogs to help us spread the word

The start date of our challenges remains the same and I will be back on Sunday 4th November with our next challenge and a theme I know you're going to love plus a fabulous prize from our November sponsor. Until then take care and see you Sunday.
