Sir stampalot Blog hop and January Challenge

 This is a sticky - scroll down for newer posts.
 Hi there and welcome to this months Sir Stampalot Challenge and Blog Hop. As it is the first one for 2011 I'd like to wish you all a Happy New Year. You should've arrived here from the lovely Chris's blog, but if not, don't worry. Just start at the Sir Stampalot Challenge Blog and follow the fun from there. First I will show you my card.Our challenge theme for January which will run for the the whole month as usual is 'A Winter's Tale'.
The main image (Simply stamps) is coloured with promarkers and mounted on a green panel over a base card stamped with snowy trees (Penny Black). The swirl and flower dies are Marianne designs and the border punch is by EK success. The prize on my blog is a lovely set of MSE stamps.

So, the letter you need from me is M and don't forget to leave me a comment too, so you can be entered into my draw and the one on the challenge blog. All that remains now is for you to have a play with the letters you got, put them in the right order and email your answer to Brenda at brenda@ibas.co.uk. The lucky overall winner will get this fab punch around the page set.
  I will tell you all about the Prize for this month's challenge at the end of the blog hop on 10th January. Good luck, and don't forget to join us making a card based on 'A Winter's Tale' so we can come and visit you too!
