April Challenge

A very Good Morning to all you crafters out there and a warm welcome to a rather special month here at Stampalot Challenge. It might be April Fools day, but I can assure you the surprises are all good ones and my are you going to be spoilt rotten this month........there are a total of fourteen prizes to be won............yep that's right 14.................because it's our Second Birthday..................so the theme this months:
Happy Birthday

You can make absolutely anything you want as long as it's to celebrate a Birthday and this is the prize from the lovely guys at Sir Stampalot for this months lucky challenge winner:


Before I tell you about the rest of this months fun activities, a reminder that the Sir Stampalot website is being constantly updated with new crafty goodies.

In the last couple of days the Stampy guys have been busy as ever updating the What's New section of the website and added pages of fabby new gems, pearls and other embellies from Hobby House.

The pearls and gems are a real steal at just £1.45 a sheet and guess who's already got hers on order ? And which colours you ask.......well I lack any self control when it comes to sparkly bits so quite a few of them I have to confess.

But it does not stop there, as in time honoured tradition we are having a Blog Hop and what fabby prizes Sir Stampalot are offering in addition the the challenge prize above, there's one at each of the DT's blogs and another for the winner of the correct blog hop answer. I know lots of you are familiar with what you need to do, but as we are seeing so many new crafters joining our challenge, I had better briefly explain:
  • Visit each of the DT's blog listed below
  • Leave each one a comment to be sure you are in the draw for the prizes on each of the DT's blogs
  • Pick up a letter from each DT blog you visit
  • Assemble those letters into two words - both have four letters and send your answers to me brenda@ibas.co.uk by noon GMT on 30th April
  • All correct answers will go into the draw for this super prize, don't you just love the sunny colours...................and a little clue to help you on your way "it's in the prize"...................

Here's the list of names you need to follow, each one will tell you where you should have arrived from and where you need to go next, but if you get lost you can always come back here and start again and don't forget you need to leave a comment at each blog, otherwise you won't be in the draw for their individucal prizes.


Just a reminder, you need to mail me brenda@ibas.co.uk with the two words you have made with the letters collected from the blogs above before noon GMT on 30th April.

And I am still not quite finished with prizes, because as this is a special month for us, this months Top 3  challenge entrants will also receive a little prize rather like this which I have put together...........


Wow, how exciting is all of that and I hope you've still got enough energy left to go make your Happy Birthday entry for a chance to win the challenge prize and be in the selection for our Top 3. Here's the inspiration from my oh so talented Design Team and our Guest Designer for April...........
