November Challenge

The first of November can mean only one thing......a new challenge at Stampalot. And to keep things jogging along on a seasonal footing and make sure you don't deviate from that never ending list of Christmas cards we would like to see your creations on the theme:

Christmas Traditions

So let your imagination run riot and show us what you will be sending out to friends and family this Christmastime. It could be a beautiful Christmas tree, a wintry landscape, Father Christmas and the presents, or an elegant seasonal sentiment taking centre stage on your work, it really is down to you and your interpretation of the theme. As always you can enter a card, l/o or just about anything, all we ask is that it is your own original work and we are really looking forward to visiting you and seeing all your creations.

Before I move on I need to give you a couple of reminders:

1)Please remember you may combine your entry with other challenges, but up to a maximum of six challenges in total including Stampalot. We have noticed that a few naughty peeps have even added more entries after entering our challenge.

2) You must mention our challenge in your post along with a direct link back to this blog.

**********I always try to mail peeps or leave a polite message to remind them if they do not meet the rules but this takes a lot of time when I could be visiting other entrants and anyway really should not be necessary as the rules are clearly listed on the sidebar. So in future it's down to you to ensure your entry meets our simple rules and any that do not will be marked as 'not eligible' on Mr Linky and not qualify for the prize on offer **********

Edited 2nd November - in line with most challenges our rules also stipulate no backlinking, we have already had to delete some this month and we are only one day in !!

OK, nasties over with and more about this months challenge. I think it's a pretty open one and just about anything goes here so long as it has a Christmas feel to it. For one lucky winner here's what our sponsors Sir Stampalot have on offer:

And to set you on your way just look at the awesome work the DT have come up with to provide some inspiration. Don't forget to click on their names to visit their blogs and show them your appreciations for all their work. And we are also thrilled to have another Guest Designer this month, please join me in welcoming Claudia who had created a gorgeous card for us:
