Hi, Fleur here, this week I'd love to see "THINGS WITH WINGS" it could be birds, fairies, butterflies the options are endless, so there's no excuse not to take part.

This week our regular sponsors Letraset are offering a set of Aquamarkers, their fabulous watercolour pens. Letraset's website has loads of information about their products and links to ideas, inspiration and exciting new products, some of which will be appearing on Create and Craft this coming week, so do pop along and have a browse.

So to show how grateful we are there will be extra prizes up for grabs this week with a blog hop. I am sure lots of you know the procedure, but as some of you will be new to this blogging lark this is what you need to do......................

Visit each of the Design Team members own blogs in the order listed below, leave each one a comment and collect a letter from each of their blogs, come back here are use the letters along with those in the grid below to make up two words.

When you have the answer mail it to me and all the correct answers will go into the draw for a special prize from Sir Stampalot, this weeks sponsors. And each of the blogs you visit along the hop will have a prize up for grabs as well.

Sir Stampalot were our very first sponsor and we are so grateful to them for their continued support of the challenge. For those of you not familiar with them, they have a super spacious shop in Peterborough where you will find a fabulous display of all our favourite stamps (and a coffee whilst you browse), a huge range of all the latest DP's as well as a whole load of other crafting goodies to feed our addiction.

Latest deliveries include re-stocks of TH tattered floral dies which you will find here and the new Tilda Sweet Rainbow range which are presently being uploaded. And if you are too far away to visit the shop, they offer a super swift delivery from their on line store.

Here is what this weeks lucky winner will receive from Sir Stampalot..........two gorgeous sets of Art Impression stamps.

And here is your photo inspiration for this weeks challenge, please interpret any way you wish and myself and the Design Team are really looking forward to seeing what you create.

But we have two winners picked by Mr Random:

The winner of the Digistamp Boutique prize is:

Grats! Send your mail address to and I'll forward it to our sponsor.

Week 102 Stamp alot

Morning all, don't forget to check out the previous post to see the winner and top 5 for Amanda's Oriental challenge last week.

This week it's my turn, Helene (or Mummylade in blogland), to oversee the event and we have not one but two sponsors; first our regular sponsor with the supercute digistamps:

One lucky winner gets to choose 6 images - and remember that all entries using a DSB image get to enter into the challenge twice.

And secondly we have
Visit Sir Stampalot Store

sponsoring with A 4x6 mini album kit, with papers, ribbons, flowers and everything required to complete the album with your own photographs.

So, in regards to that sponsor I thought that a suitable challenge would be to Stamp alot =). In other words, make sure you use at least three different stamps on your card or project.
Now let's look at the fabulous DT projects made to inspire you:
Louise from Sir Stampalot has come up with another gorgeous creation for us this week.
