Little Claire Digi-Stamp Challenge # 1 - 'Open Theme'

Good morning and welcome to our very first Digi-Stamp challenge.

We do hope you will join us each month. Our new challenge is designed to encourage all of you 'digi-stamp' lovers in Blogland, to dust off those beloved digi's and take part.

We will still be running our usual monthly challenges and our Digi-Stamp Design Team ladies : Allison, Anne, Avril, Lisa, Lynsey, Mags, Margreet, Sarah and Susan, will be working along side the existing Little Claire Design Team of Diane, Francy, Gaynor, Heidi, Helen, Marianne and Shary.

Our first theme is an 'Open' one.  We are looking forward to seeing all of your entries and we ask that use only digi-images on your cards. You do not have to use Little Claire digi-stamps to enter, but should you wish to and would like to purchase any of our lovely digi images, just pop on over to the Little Claire website HERE, where we have a wonderful selection to tempt you.

All we ask when entering our challenges, is that you please follow the rules below, have fun and get your creativity flowing!

We have a wonderful prize on offer for the winner of our first challenge :

TEN - Little Claire Digi-Stamp images

Our new Digi-Stamp Design Team have been playing with lots of the digi-stamps. Here is lots of fantastic inspiration for you to feast your eyes upon!

Firstly, we have another new digi-stamp design team member to introduce to you all.

Anne Ruffles.

Hi I am Anne :
I have been an avid crafter for as long as I can remember; ranging from knitting, bobbin and needle lace making, parchment craft and more recently sugar craft and cake decoration. Card making always ran alongside my other crafting projects. Over the last few years, and particularly since I retired from teaching, a year and a half ago, I have been indulging my passion for card designing and making, so my other crafty projects now have to fit in. My husband Ken and I love to travel, so am always on the look out for ideas to incorporate into my designs. On the home front, if Ken can’t find me indoors or gardening he knows where to look…..up in my ‘shed’ card making.
