Mid month celebrations

Good morning and welcome to our mid month inspirational post where this months theme is 'Anything Goes with a Celebrations option'. The challenge runs until 29th September so you still have plenty of time to join in with your first or even second or third entry.

I am pleased to announce that Zoe who has been our Guest Designer the last couple of months is joining the team on a full time basis, please join us in giving her a warm welcome.

A reminder that this month we will have two winners, one will receive a £15 store voucher for CB stamps and the second the lovely CB Honeysuckle stamp.
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! 

Just take a look at the beautiful and varied inspiration from the talented Design Team......

September - Anything Goes with Celebrations option

Good Morning, we hope you are ready to get stamping again as it's time for our September challenge which is......

Anything Goes with a Celebrations option

If you go for the Celebrations option it can be any Celebration, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Christmas and many more. Please remember the focal element of your entry must be hand stamped as our preference (or digital). We still see a few entries where either stencils or die cuts are focal which are ineligible so you can check our rules here

This months prizes will be slightly different, there will be a £15 voucher for the winner randomly selected from all entries and the Honeysuckle stamp below for a second winner also selected at random from entries following the Celebrations option.
