Here I am - late again - with the Crafty Individuals November Challenge details.  I ended up watching some weird sort of horror movie with my son tonight (and I don't normally do horror movies!) - but you know when you get sucked into something that is on the TV and need to see what happens ..........
Do I feel better for having watched it until the end? - no I can't say that I do really.  Ah well lets move on!

Today is 1st November and that means its time for the start of the new Challenge.  The subject matter for the Challenge has been chosen with the oncoming season in mind - and is 'Winter Wonderland' - with big thanks to Lynne for this excellent idea.  Lynne will also be judging this month's challenge at the end of the month, and will be picking five winners who will each be able to choose a rubber stamp from our collection as their 'prize'.  So please do join in if you can - it is always a pleasure to see all your very creative work.

Please note:  As this is a Crafty Individuals Challenge you must include at least one Crafty Individuals product in your submission.

You will be able to submit your entry up until midnight on 25th November, and we are so looking forward to seeing your artwork.

As usual I will paste the monthly guidelines below:



To enter this month’s Crafty Individuals Challenge please put together your project, following the subject material outlined below (your project should include at least one Crafty Individuals product please), then:

Post your challenge project on your blog, before the 25th of the month, and include a link back to this blog,

Leave a link in the URL box to take us directly to your challenge project, etc. – which will then appear here on this blog as a thumbnail image – so we can all see your wonderful work.

At the end of the month the CI team and/or guests will set about choosing five lucky participants, each of whom will win a CI rubber stamp of their choice.

Go for it and enjoy the challenge x

I have some lovely 'Rudolph', CI-332, themed projects from the 'Team' to give you food for thought tonight - mmmm!

To begin with a gentle and delightful hanging by LYNNE herself:

Followed by a wonderful card from ISABELLE (loving the scroll effect):

And then a very pretty little box decorated with Stampbord tiles (and Rudolph), by LUCY:

So there we have just a little taster selection, and with more to follow soon.

NB: We have just received the new issue of Craft Stamper tonight, which should be on the CI Website very soon, and it has a few projects within, featuring our products, including one by myself and another one by Joanne Wardle, which is really lovely.  So don't forget to purchase a copy of this great British stamping magazine!

Goodnight all!

ps Look out for some more Blog Candy packages to come later in the week.
