Crafts 4 Eternity is a boutique online craft store, run by the lovely Michele, who also designs her own range of digital stamps. Click here to view the entire range.

We on the design team were lucky once again to be given the stamps to play with and they have really inspired us all!

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 5th December - good luck!

Here are the cards from the Design Team and Guest DT 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!
