If you are passing through Peterborough today then why not pop into Sir Stampalot and catch one of their FREE demonstrations (10am - 4pm) featuring Chris and Louise. The day will be fun-packed with free tea and coffee, free parking and plenty of inspiration, and you'll be able to see the new Christmas goodies from Hero Arts, Penny Black, Inkadinkadoo, KARS and more!


BUT WAIT!

As this is our big 10th challenge, we're throwing an extra bonus into the ring. As usual, our design team will be coming around to see all of your entries, and as we do so we'll be making a note of our favourites, and our top 3 will be offered a three month guest stint on the team. What do you think of that!

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 12th September - good luck!

Here are the Design Team's fabulous cards to (hopefully) inspire you! As always, do hop along to our blogs to find out how our creations were made - we'd love you to stop by and tell us what you think!

Don't forget, if you don't have a blog you can either email us a picture of your entry or the link to your online gallery. We look forward to seeing all your cards!
