Challenge #18 - Barb's Sketch

Well, here we are. I can hear sleigh bells in the distance, and the end of 2009 is dawning. This is also our last challenge with our guest DT members - we hope you have all enjoyed their work as much as we have. We have a special prize for this challenge, and a slightly extended entry period, all in the name of Christmas, but first...

We want to thank those of you who took part in challenge #17 - it was a pleasure to come round and see all your cards. Bet you can't wait to find out who won...

So, onto this fortnight's sketch (#18) which has been designed by Barb:

Challenge #18 is being sponsored by Squiggle Stamps, who have very generously donated a £20 gift voucher for the winner of our challenge, and in the spirit of Christmas, they have also given us two stamps to give away as runner's up prizes - so 3 lucky people will be selected to receive a prize from this challenge! Whadd'ya think of that?


Squiggle Stamps carry a unique range of cute and whimsical stamps designed by a talented team of illustrators. All their stamps are made from deeply etched natural red rubber - Stamps are supplied as untrimmed rubber giving you the option to use them as they are with an acrylic block and adhesive or attaching them to a mounting material such as EZ Mount or Kling On.

Visit the Squiggle Stamps BLOG to see stunning creations by the design team. New fabulous quirky designs due January 2010!

Also, as this challenge comes so close to Christmas, we will be giving you an extra week to get your cards in - you'll have until January 9th to submit your designs. So, without further ado, here are our wonderful Design Team's and Guest DT's creations to inspire you...



To enter the challenge, follow the sketch and include stamping somewhere on your creation, post it on your blog, and post the direct link to it using the Mr Linky widget below. (Please do not post a general link to your blog, as this makes it more difficult for us to find your card - thanks!). If you don't have a blog, please email a picture of your card to us (see the sidebar for our email address) and we'll put it in our online gallery and enter you into the challenge. Entries closes at midnight (GMT) on Saturday 9th January 2010.

We look forward to seeing all your cards and creations!

xx The SS&S Design Team xx
