Going Gorgeously Gingham!

We're post dating the challenges so that it will always be at the top, be assured this is the current challenge & don't forget to check the post below for winners!

Well hello Saturday!!  I don't know about you but what a week!  I won't bore you with the details because we'll be here 'til Christmas & we all know how fast that's coming up!  So we've a great theme this week whether you want to get on with those Christmas cards (*ahem*...Susan!!) or are steering well clear.  We want to see GINGHAM on your projects.  I love gingham, it's so versatile & our lovely sweet things have got some gorgeous examples to inspire you below along with our guest sweet thing Tracy.

We're kindly sponsored this week by the lovely Fairy Dust Crafts who as well as having a great range of digi's also stock loads of other goodies such as Promarkers, flowers & charms

A new challenge at Sweet Stampin'

Good morning sweet stampers and another challenge here at Sweet Stampin'. Now for a wee change we thought we would give you a photo for some inspiration as we haven't had that for a while, now you can use the colours, the flowers, the photo itself just as long as your project has a connection to the photo....isn't it a pretty photo.... just before I go on, can I just remind you all that you need include something that has been stamped and you can only enter a maximum of 2 entries just to make it fair when drawing our random winners.

Unfortunately we had a bit of a hiccup with this week's sponsor, but our very own, very wonderful Fi (this isn't Fi writing this, so I can say that otherwise it might look a touch conceited lol!) has stepped into the breach & is offering 2 rubber stamps from Sugar Nellie!!! Now isn't that fabulous? I quite fancy that myself actually!!

Check out the inspiration below from our fabby Design Team...they have made a wonderful job and we also have Tracey joining us and who is our Guest Designer for the month of November, so pop over to their own blogs and leave them some love.
