November - Christmas Greetings

Good morning everyone, I hope you are ready for our new challenge where this month we have a nice and easy theme for you...............

********Christmas Greetings********

As the title suggests we want to see a Christmas Greetings on your creation, this can be the focal element or an added stamped sentiment.

Please can I remind you we are a stamping challenge so must see a stamped image, sentiment or quote as the focal element of your artwork. And please note: if we do not comment on your entry it will be because it does not follow the theme, qualify under our rules, or because we are asked to sign in or provide additional data to comment. We do not want to be rude but we do want to be fair to those who do follow the rules.

Stamp Addicts are our lovely sponsors this month and are offering a super £35 store voucher for our lucky winner. We are a family run business based in Bedfordshire and have been in business since 1992. We have watched the popularity of rubber stamping and all papercrafts steadily increase over time and now manufacture our own branded rubber stamps which frequently feature on Hochanda TV as well as exhibiting at craft shows across the UK.

We are pleased to welcome Barb as our Guest designer this month and what a pretty card she has made to inspire us all...................

Happy stamping everyone.

Before linking your entry are you sure it meets our challenge rules ? These are listed in a tab at the top of this blog and the most important ones also mentioned at the beginning of this post.

Sally's go to stamp

Good morning, it's time for our mid month inspirational post where the DT are offered a challenge, this time it's Sally who starts off our new DT's theme of  'My go to stamp', I am really looking forward to seeing what each of the team come up with in the next few months.

So I will hand you over to Sally....................

My Go to stamp had to feature a tree, but which one?! After much thought I went for this one by Inkylicious.

 I have used it for Birthdays, Christmas, Father's day and sympathy cards. It is such a versatile stamp.

Thanks Sally, it's one of my favourites as well.
