Good morning, I hope you are ready for a new challenge. This month we are celebrating our gardens with the theme of........
******Beautiful Blooms (flowers)******
It's as simple as that, we want to see lots of beautiful flowers, so get out those floral stamps and get creating. Your entry can be for any occasion all we ask is that the focal element is stamped (or digital) and has flower/s (not just added non stamped flowers).
Lesley from Chocolate Baroque will be on the craft channel at 9am and 1pm on Friday 9th July showcasing some familiar stamp sets plus three beautiful new sets which I promise you will not want to miss out on.
There will be two winners this month, the first will be able to select an A4 stamp sheet or stamps to the same value and a further prize for the second. And don't forget that entries using a Chocolate Baroque image will be eligible for selection in our Featured Designer spot.
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 and David Wharton.
We design our own range of natural rubber art stamps from 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!
Fiki was selected as our next Featured Designer from entries using Chocolate Baroque stamps in May, here is a little bio she has written to introduce herself:
"My name is Fikreta but friends call me Fiki. I'm from Bosnia and Herzegovina, but I live in Kalinovac, Croatia I'm married and we have one beautiful 18 year old girl whose name is Paola. I'm a big animal lover. Love anything crafty. I started crafting 5 years ago and blogging about 4 years ago. If you ask me why I start to craft I think because I don't go insane LOL ! I'm at home, I do not work, wife and mom so I must do something else. I love paper, stamps (digi too) ink and everything else to make my creations. I love to make anything crafty, My inspiration is everywhere. I'm a big dreamer. And I like to take pictures, especially my cat's. Thank you for having me as Guest Designer! I'm very honoured!"
Thank you so much Fiki. Here is a beautiful card she has made to share with us all......
