Week 30 - Embossing

HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all
and welcome to our first challenge for 2009
We'd like to thank you all for your support to our blog in 2008 and hope you'll all join us with some more fun challenges in 2009

Well onto to today's challenge:
Week 30 ~ Embossing
We thought we'd give you a nice easy one this week after the hustle and bustle of the festive holidays and ease you in gently.....

As always its entirely up to you what you create .... card, atc, altered art etc... as long as you include at least one Penny Black stamp

We have a fabbie prize this week kindly donated by our sponsor

Say hello to: Jade & William ~ First Love

I just love these little cuties, there perfect for all occasions and if you pop over to Polly Crafts you'll find a fabulous selection of these beauties and other gorgeous crafting goodies.

I'd like to thank Paula for continued donations of these gorgeous stamps.

If you'd like to win this gorgeous stamp, then leave us a comment with a link to your card and the winner will be announched next Saturday.

If you don't have a blog then you can email me or Kath and we will upload your card for you.

And here's the fabulous work from our Design Team this week....












Happy Crafting
