Good Morning, our last challenge of 2020, a year that has presented unimaginable challenges to the whole World and we pray 2021 will be a better one for everyone. For us as crafters, our hobby has been a great source of comfort and we are grateful to each and every one of you who have continued to support us during these difficult times.
Our theme this month is simply........
****** Anything Goes******
So cards, gift tags and bags, hand made gifts and so much more, all we ask is that you remember the focal element of your work must be a stamped image, you can enter up to three pieces of work.
Our winner will receive an A4 stamp set of their choice or stamps to the same value.
Also, entries using a Chocolate Baroque stamp will be eligible for selection as a Featured Designer on a future challenge post.......there may even be an extra prize of a Chocolate Baroque stamp (please note, November entries have been carried forward).
Chocolate Baroque is a small independent art and craft company, based in the historic market town of Barnard Castle in County Durham in the North-East of England and is owned and run by Lesley Wharton.
We design our own range of natural rubber art stamps from Sue's hand drawn originals, complemented by typography from Lesley. The rubber stamps are made in house, by David, to our very exacting quality standards. And nothing gets past his eagle eye!
Our Featured Designer this month is Helene...........
"Hi, my name is Heléne Ericsson and I live in Umea, in the northern part of Sweden. I have been crafting more or less my entire life but started showcasing my work on https://mummylade.blogspot.com in 2009. Looking at early posts you can clearly see how my taste, and hopefully skills, have developed 😊 I love vintage and shabby chic, rough edges, lace and the colour blue and I have more crafted gift bags and boxes than a person of sound mind would keep😇 Crafting is a great way to relax and clear your head, it’s very rewarding to create items from a blank paper and it is REALLY rewarding to be a part of this world wide crafting community with all the love and support here. I’m very honoured to be featured as a designer here on We Love Chocolate Baroque and I hope we’ll see each other again in some form. Hold on, hang in there and keep a healthy distance".
