Vintage Theme Challenge


Thank you to everyone who entered our last challenge Colours of Spring/Easter, please call back next Friday as we will be announcing the winners then.

For now it's me, Jill (Mrs Stamp Man) here to host our new fortnightly challenge and this time the theme is Vintage.

I guess I could be called team leader and as such when it's my turn to host I always I like to take the opportunity of thanking our fantastically talented team who come up with amazing and inspiring creations for each challenge. If you visit their blogs you will find out more information about the challenge pieces they have made and I'm sure you'll find much more to inspire you.

I am also truly grateful for all of your support too, if you didn't join in we wouldn't have these challenges. We know that a lot of time and thought goes into each of your entries, you certainly don't give the team an easy job selecting winners, but we love it so keep up the good work!!

As usual there is a top prize of £10 to spend at The Stamp Man.

If you haven't joined our challenges yet, don't be shy, every
one is welcome. The instructions are given above under the header.

Have fun!!
