April - Springtime

Good morning, Happy Easter and welcome to our April challenge where this month our theme is simply......

******Springtime******

We hope you will join us in celebrating this beautiful season, please just remember that we are a stamping challenge and the focal element of your work must be hand stamped (as our preference) to reflect the theme (or digital).

The prize as usual is the winners choice of an A4 stamp set or stamps to the same value. All prizes must be claimed within seven days of winners being published. Any unclaimed prize will be forfeited, prizes are non transferable and no cash alternatives are available.

The Design Team selected Flo's entry as their Featured Designer from our February entries. She created this beautiful Spring scene for us and although she did not want to share a crafting bio asked that I add the following words from her "I am very excited and honoured to have been invited to be featured designer this month. A huge thank you to Brenda and the Design Team". 

Here are the creations from the Design Team who have really embraced the season......
