Creative Challenge March 2016- Springtime

Welcome to our monthly blog challenge!
A big thank you to everyone who joined in last month's challenge. We had lots of fabulous entries and I will be announcing the winner of February's challenge in the next couple of days.

We have decided to change the way the Creative Challenge is run, and we have implemented several new things!
Please read below, so you know what is happening!

This month the challenge theme is Springtime.

You can interpret it any way you like, as long as there is rubber stamping in it.

To join in with this challenge (we are limiting the challenge entries to 3 per person), is simple; all we would like you to do is, make a piece of artwork, making sure that you include the theme and some rubber stamping. Pop back here to link up using the Inklinkz at the bottom of this post, so that we can see what you've made and then, leave us a comment to let us know you have joined in with the challenge.
 As always, there will be candy for one randomly picked entrant - the winner will receive a stamp of their choice from The Artistic Stamper
In addition,  starting this month,  you can enter the same challenge on Facebook!  
To join us on just go to our new Facebook group, and send us a request to join in. 
There will be a prize for the Facebook challenge, as well as the blog challenge!
And don't forget....if you use Artistic Stamper stamps on your entry, you will entered into the draw, twice!
Here is a little bit of creativity for you from the Creative Team to help you get started....


I hope you are ready to join me and my team mates for a new challenge. 
Springtime always makes me think of butterflies. 

I used butterflies from  butterflies #2 to create this accordion book, along with some other bits and bobs, Head over to my blog if you would like to know more.

Let us use another sardine can and fill it with a bicycle and flowers...

I used Debbie Cotton's bicycle and flowers, and the butterfly from the Encyclopedia Botanica from the Floral stamps. More details on my blog

I created this card with tag holder using just Distress inks in Wild Honey, Fossilized Amber and Lucky Clover. I used one of the Gibson Girls, and the 2 new Floral backgrounds , stamping them in Black Archival.

We hope that you will join in this month's challenge, and also join us on Facebook too, and we look forward to seeing your creations. Don't forget to add a comment when you have posted your entry.
Have a creative month

Beautiful springtime inspiration from the design team! I never get tired of those sardine cans! Wow! You ladies rocked it! And I have noted the new rules; I hang my head in shame for my enthusiasm of the past two challenges; I do that sometime! :):) Congrats on the Facebook page, too! Hugs!
