A beautiful new challenge blog

Hello there fellow stampers and bloggers. Have we got a wonderful new blog for you!!! Pascale and Anne have put together, for your pleasure, a new weekly challenge which is dedicated to
Sweet Pea Stamps!
If you haven't already seen Sweet Pea Stamps, where have you been? They are the most beautiful and feminine Art stamps which are rapidly flying into the UK all the way from the US and finding a lot of wonderful homes over here. We KNOW that many of you have already sampled these gorgeous stamps because we've seen you out there in blogland, and we hope that our weekly themes will inspire you to use your Sweet Pea stamps more and more and play along with us each week.

If you are a big fan of Fantasy Art, then this is THE place for you! Every Monday we will post a brand new theme / challenge and we know that you will want to rise to it.

We are delighted to announce that we have two DT members who have joined us Debbie and Amy so please go and see there lovely artwork on their blogs you won't be disappointed.
But before we get going properly we are looking to have some new teamies join us and help us to prepare inspiring samples. The only stipulation is that your projects MUST use a Sweet Pea Stamps image as it's main focal point. If you are a keen Sweet Pea Stamper and feel you are able to make cards / projects for our Monday posts then we would be delighted to hear from you. All you have to do in the first instance is create a card / project using this gorgeous sketch that Pascale has made and leave us a comment below linking us directly to your blog. If you're feeling a bit shy, then don't worry, you can email your picture directly to Pascale or myself.

Please note we are happy for you to take part even if you don't want to join the DT. If you wish to join the DT please add DT next to your link and mention it in your post.

The closing date for entries to the DT call is April 2nd 2010 and the winners will be contacted on April 3rd 2010.

So, here we go with our sketch, and a couple of cards that we have made to kickstart you!
