New challenge start date!

Hi everyone - apologies for not blogging lately but the days just seem to fly by - I can't believe we're nearly at the weekend again!!  Anyway on with the new challenge news ;o) 

Our new Ladybug challenges will begin on the

1st September

Please let all your friends know as we would love for as many people to get involved as possible - it is so lovely to see everyones brilliant crafting projects and they serve as great inspiration for all the people that go around all the blogs ;o)

Challenges will run monthly to begin with starting on the first of each month.You can enter up to three times - any more than this won't be entered.  The winner will be chosen by random number generator and then we will also pick a top three who will get a little badge to display on their blog if they wish to ;o)  Prizes will vary - sometimes there will be a voucher to spend on the website and other times there may be some crafting goodies. 
I am attaching a button advertising the challenges which you can display on your blogs if you would like to (it would be lovely if you would to get the word out there ;o) - you can find it on the sidebar.  (Which I've managed to do after half a dozen attempts LOL)

So while we wait for the challenge to begin (I can't wait to see the new DT projects - they are so talented!!) I have a little stamp to give away;

This is a foam backed silicone stamp by La Blanche - and I say little but it is actually quite a big stamp at 3.75 x4.75"
All you need to do for a chance to win is to leave a comment after this post and I'll draw a winnerbefore the first challenge begins ;o)

Anyway I have since taken a look through your blog and I love your designs. I am hoping to join in the Challenges but I am hopelessly slow with my ideas - anyway we shall have to see! I love your La Blanche stamp - quite a classic scene and I can see it in sepia with the ink dragged in using a waterbrush! Sorry I'm off on a waffle! Thanks for the opportunity to win such a lovely stamp.
