Good morning everyone, Brenda here with this weeks challenge which is a rather special one and we are hoping lots of you will join us in remembering our DT Kath and celebrating her style of craft.
Kath had chosen the theme for this week months ago, she was always so organised and would choose themes and prepare her work weeks and sometimes months in advance. The them she had chosen was Favourite Stamps, so we are sticking with that and adding an option to include her love of paper piecing and flowers, something all who knew her associated with her pretty creations......
****Favourite Stamps with the option of Paper Pieced Flowers****
We have several prizes, the first a floral Woodware stamp from Craft Stash, one of Kath's favourite places to shop.
Next a winners choice of four digital images from Ruth Hamilton Design
A £12 voucher for digital images from the winners choice of store. It has been been kindly donated by one of Kath's crafting friends, she did not want to be named but wants to help make this a special challenge, thank you for your kindness.
Canary Bird Rose was Kath's favourite Chocolate Baroque stamp, this will be for a winner who follows the Paper Pieced Flowers option.
Kath loved her DP's so there had to be some for a prize, this is an 8x8 pad. Kath was an avid 'collector' of it and always vowing not to buy more, but we all know that story!
Another prize also donated by a friend of Kath's who also wished to remain anonymous, our thanks to you for being so thoughtful.
And yet another prize of a set of SU stamps called 'Happiest of Days', again from a friend of Kath's, you crafters really as all so very kind and Kath would have been so taken back to realise how much she meant to so many of us.
The prizes keep coming, I am overwhelmed by peoples kindness and I know Kath would have been as well, another of her friends would like to send some ribbons to another winner.
And here is the inspiration from our lovely Design Team. Kath had a particular love of Woodware, Penny Black and Chocolate Baroque stamps, especially florals and the team have incorporated those into their creations so beautifully this week, I know Kath would have been very appreciative of the time and love put into each of them......
