Malcolm was in charge of the February Challenge, and he picked 'Spring' as a theme.  We had 36 fabulous entries which you can check out at the bottom of the post HERE, and they were all sooo good he couldn't make a decision.  He whittled the choices down to around 11, and then we had to kind of choose the five by rolling the dice.  His comment was 'its hard this judging lark!'.

So here are the final five - well done, and thanks to everyone who joined in to make the Challenge a success.

Izzwizz - loving those dangly charms!

May - Great colours - check out how she went about making this tag on her blog -

KJJC - Great idea, and very pretty -

Giogio - Another very original idea - loving those textiles -

And Kath - a great combination of grunge and loveliness -

As usual ladies if you would send us an email to with your choice of stamp, plus your address, we will be delighted to send it out immediately.  Thanks again.

The next Challenge will be starting at the beginning of April and I hope you will be joining us then.

Just to finish tonight I would like to say in an 'over the moon' sort of way that one of my own projects has made the front cover of the April issue of Craft Stamper - and I am totally delighted, of course.  It is a decorated mini Tando Printer Tray which you will find on the CI Website in the 'MUST HAVES'  section, and it features several of our stamps and papers.  There are also lots of other great projects inside, and you will find the magazine for sale on our Website HERE.  The mag is definitely a must have for anyone interested in stamping!!

Bye for now.
