We would also like to invite Lozzy to be a Guest Designer for the Sweet Pea Stampers for January or February 2013 .  Please get in touch and we will let you know the topic and when your creation would need to be in by if you are interested.

December Challenge - Quick and Easy Christmas Card

How did that happen?  It is less than two weeks until Christmas Day and less than three weeks to the New Year and the start of 2013.

We had a wonderful selection of entries for the November Challenge of gifts.  Thank you to all those that took part.  Make sure you check back next Friday to see who won the challenge and the winner the Design Team have picked.

Now what are we challenging you to this month?  Seeing as we are so close to Christmas we want to see "quick and easy Christmas card".  We do mean quick and easy and not ones that have taken hours to make.

Remember you don't have to use a Sweet Pea Stamp - although we DO love to see them being used.  Sweet Pea Stamps have also started selling digital stamps so you don't even have to wait for the postman to call and that's a good thing at this time of year as packages can get delayed!!!

To help you with this challenge, here is the inspiration from the Fab DT.

Using Ching Chou-Kuik's Holly Fairy - available in rubber stamp and now in a digital image

I use a Elisabeth Bell 

Poinsetta Fairy by Ching Chou Kuik

Using Poinsettia Fairy digital image

Using Connie Fong's Angel of Christmas Stars

The Sweet Pea Stampers Design Team would like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and New Year and we hope to see you visiting again in 2013.

October Challenge - Support

 This month we thought it might be nice to make a card that will actually be sent. 
Although I love Halloween, I don't usually send cards, even though I make them! 
 I live in the UK ,where, at this time of year its cold and wet, the children are back at school and nearly everyone has a headcold. What better time of the year to make a "Get well" or "Thinking of you" card. Interpret it how you like, show your support and send the card.

I would like to apologize for for managing to close the linkz before the month was up in the last challenge . I did notice it last week but was worried about losing all the great entries you had already entered if I reset the end date.
 So, to make up for it, this month we will ALSO  have two prizes of two Sweet Pea Rubber stamps each.
Two for the random generator and two for the DT's top pick. So what are you waiting for ?
Remember to pop back next Friday for the winners of the "Anything Goes" Challenge.

 Here Is the inspiration from some of the Design Team
