Flowers to brighten your day

Hello everyone, popping in with a mid month reminder for our 'Say it with Flowers' theme, lots of lovely entries and most of you are spot on with the theme requirement..........just a few Peeps seem to have missed the point or not read the challenge post, that the theme is about flowers, so just to be sure, your focal element must be predominantly stamped flowers.
Lesley and David from Chocolate Baroque are our sponsors this month - you can see the prize in the mail challenge post below. Despite all that is going on making life so difficult for most of us, Lesley and David are working to the best of their ability to keep stamps coming off the presses and posting out orders so if you fancy treating yourself to some top quality and unique stamps pop over the the web site.

May - Say it with Flowers

Good morning, I hope you are all safe and well and to those whose who many be suffering from or have family who have CORVID-19 we send our love and prayers for a speedy recovery.

Our theme this month is the perfect opportunity to get out all those floral stamps........

********Say it with Flowers********

Please remember we are a stamping challenge and the focal element of your work must reflect the theme (i.e. be Flowers), a few added flowers as an embellishment or part of a larger image will not suffice and not be eligible for the prize. Whist we prefer conventional stamping, digital images are allowed. You can check out challenge rules here.
Chocolate Baroque is a small independent art and craft company, based in the historic market town of Barnard Castle in County Durham in the North-East of England and is owned and run by Lesley Wharton. 

We design our own range of natural rubber art stamps from Sue's hand drawn originals, complemented by typography from Lesley.  The rubber stamps are made in house, by David, to our very exacting quality standards. And nothing gets past his eagle eye!

The lucky winner will receive one of the beautiful new Blueprint stamp sets (Blueprint Freesia) cling mounted along with a selection of speciality papers and tags.

                    Freesia Blueprint Rubber Stamp sheet - A5                    A4 Drawing Cartridge 220gsm - pk 10Tag Pack - Assorted sizes

And we have a second sponsor, our own Dora who designs her own digital images and the winner will be able to choose a selection of them.

The Design Team really have pulled out all the stops this month ans have so much inspiration using images from both our sponsors.........
