We look forward to seeing all your Christmas projects, be they cards, gift boxes or other hand crafted creations, all we ask you to remember is that the focal element of your work must be hand stamped to reflect the theme.

Before I tell you about this months sponsor and prize, we have a sad farewell to say to Marlies, she has been with the team for several years but family commitments forced her into what she said was a very difficult decision. She has a wonderful style of crafting which we all loved and we will miss seeing her creations. Thank you Marlies.

But that means we have some new DT's who each bring their own style of crafting and hope you will join us in giving a warm welcome to Fiona and Vee. Both have been regular entrants to the challenge so we are pleased to have the opportunity to work along with them to provide our monthly inspiration.

We welcome back a regular sponsor offering a £25 store voucher for this months lucky winner......
