It's the first of the month again, and time for me to let you in on the secret I've been sitting on for the past few weeks! I'm now a member of the Sir Stampalot Challenge Design Team! Sadly, Lorraine has had to step down, and while she'll be a very hard act to follow, I'm thrilled to bits and very honoured to have been asked to join the team.
April the 1st marks a special day for the Stampalot Challenge because it's our 1st Birthday! It has been a brilliant year, and with fantastic support from everyone in blogland, it's become one of the best challenges around.
Now, not only is it our Birthday, it's also April Fools Day !! So this means as well as a brand new challenge we've got something extra special lined up with a twist or two. But let me tell you about the April challenge first. The theme has been chosen by our very own Lady (Janice) Stampalot who has decreed it will be:
"LADIES AND FASHION"
For one lucky winner, this is the fantastic prize on offer from Sir Stampalot:
So now for the real fun bit.........this month the Design Team will be displaying their Challenge work on their own blogs only. And on the Challenge Blog we have a collection of pictures and pieces of artwork.............a picture of each DT member along with a piece of their work with they have selected which they think best depicts their style of crafting.
Have you guessed what you need to do? That's right, you have to decide which of our Design Team fits which pairing of picture and artwork! Hop over to the Stampalot Challenge Blog for all the details of what to do. When you think you have the answers, email Brenda firstname.lastname@example.org with your list. There will be a couple of prizes on offer selected from those with all or the most correct pairings that reach her before 25th April. Any received after that date will not be included.
Anyway, here's my card for the “Ladies and Fashion” theme.
Stamps by Hero Arts (the sentiment is part of a larger stamp), coloured with Promarkers, background paper by Basic Grey (sadly discontinued), lace and recycled button from my stash.
I'm so looking forward to seeing everyone's entries, and hope you all enjoy our first birthday challenge!
And thanks for taking the time to visit. I hope you find something here to enjoy, maybe be inspired by and (occasionally) even be amused by! I've been crafting in one way or another for about as long as I can remember, and cardmaking for well over 25 years. I'm privileged to live in rural SW Scotland, where, as a nature lover, I have only to look out of the window for fresh inspiration.
I love getting comments, and each one is read and much appreciated. Hope to see you again soon!
