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.
