Sir Stampalot Challenge and Blog Hop

A very Good Morning to you all..........the day we have all been waiting for has eventually arrived and all can be revealed. As you all know, our sponsor for this very special challenge and blog hop is Sir Stampalot who are celebrating their move to a spacious new shop in Peterborough.

This is an addition to my original post as I have been asked the question a few times - yes, this is open to entries worldwide !

We have lots of fun planned and some super prizes. The first prize for the challenge is a Sizzix Big Shot with extended cutting platform, plus dies including two of the fabulous Sizzix Bigz dies which cut boxes and shaped cards.

The Challenge First Prize
This prize is so good that I have had real trouble with my Design Team because as soon as I told them what was on offer most of them wanted out so they could enter the challenge. But I am pleased that they all stayed and I want to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to all of them for their time and effort in helping me get this up and running. They have come up with some wonderfully inspirational work which you will see on your way round on the Blog Hop. I can't share my creation until tomorrow as it is a small gift for Andy and Janice and I don't want to spoil the surprise.
These are just some of the goodies up for grabs on the Blog Hop

There will also be two runners up prizes for the challenge and prizes for every stop of the blog hop which include stamps from all the best companies such as Hero Arts, Penny Black, Stamps Happen, embellishment kits etc.

So enough of my blurb, I know you all want to know what you need to do to be in with a chance of winning:

The Challenge and blog hop will run for two weeks closing at midnight GMT on 13th February 2010. The challenge theme is:

"MOVING"

Your project can be a card, box, scrapbook l/o, whatever you choose and the theme is open to interpretation, moving home, kinetic card, vehicle or as simple as a dangling charm as long as it represents movement.

Just a few rules you need to follow for your creation to be included in the big draw:

1) Your project must be linked to Mr Linky at the bottom of this post.

2) You must include a link to this post and Sir Stampalot in your entry post on your own blog.

3) You may enter more than once, proving second or subsequent entries are a different type of project (i.e a card and a scrapbook l/o, not two cards). You may combine with other challenges, but we ask that you do not back-link to old posts.

The Blog Hop: Starting here you need to visit the following Design Team blogs:

1) Pick up a letter clue at each one.

2) Leave a comment at each blog you visit on their special blog hop posts so you can be entered into the draws for those prizes. Starting from here, this is where you need to go:


And a little clue to help you on your way - when you re-arrange the letters you will end up with three words and I have given you one to start you on your way:

_ _ / _ _ _ E / _ _ _ _ _

When you have the answer mail it to me brenda@ibas.co.uk and all correct answers will go into the draw for yet another prize.

All winners will be selected by Random Org., and will be announced here on Sunday 14th February 2010. All that remains is to say thank you so much for your support, good luck with all the prize draws and most importantly have fun and we look forward to visiting all your blogs to see what you have created.

Note: As Mr Linky seems to be in holiday mode please link in the comment section if he is missing.

Grenouille Greetings said...

All week I have been trying to work out what to make for this challenge. I had the blog candy up on my side bar weeks ago and a link to the candy in an earlier post. I e-mailed the phrase to Brenda earlier in the week but I just couldn't work out what to make until today! I am really pleased with my card too so thank you for setting this challenge and thank you for working with Sir Stampalot to offer this fabulous candy. I hope they will be happy in their new premises. Warmest wishes, Lesley.

Leah the Orange said...

seriously LOVED doing this challenge! even my husband wanted to play along! he's an art teacher, so he couldn't resist, and he's going to use the card he made to formulate a lesson plan, so thanks for the inspiration! :)
