Good morning everyone,

It's February challenge time already, where has the start of this year gone?  I hope you are getting some crafting time in, and can join us for the next challenge.

Firstly we have the winners of January's challenge, Anything Goes.
Our random winner is:

Congratulations Serafeena! We will be in touch to arrange your prize and don't forget to grab your winner's badge from the badges tab in the sidebar.

The fabulous winner’s prize this month is your choice of IndigoBlu stamps.  As always, you have 3 options to choose from:

Also the Top Three each month (chosen by our lovely DT) will all be invited to do an inspiration piece to be included on the new reminder post that now goes live mid challenge. So, if you’d like a chance to be featured on the IndigoBlu Challenge Blog get those stamps out and get creating!

You’ll find all the information on how to enter the challenge,  the rules (don’t worry, there’s not that many) and get to meet the Design Team in the tabs on the sidebar.

This month’s Top 3 from the 'Anything Goes' challenge, as chosen by the DT are...

1. No 3 - Autumn, at Sew Paper Paint
2. No 14 - Anne Redfern
3. No 12 - Lesley Cutmore

Well deserved congratulations to you all, and don't forget to grab your Top Three badge from the Badges tab above.

Our winner from last month's challenge, Theresa, has joined us today as a Guest Designer, and here is her inspiration for you:

Theresa had this to say:

I was so pleased to win the IndigoBlu challenge last month. I was over the moon. I used to enter the challenge regularly up to a few months back and made top 3 on several occasions, but had never won before. so last month I decided to enter again and it must have been meant to be..... I knew which stamps I wanted even before I had gone onto the shop site. the new science ones. can't wait for them to arrive and to add to my ever increasing collection of IB stamps.

Thank you Theresa for this lovely piece, it's great having you this month as our Guest Designer. I absolutely love this idea for an old tin, and the colours are just fab!

And now it's our own fabulous DT's turn:






Wow! Blown away by these fab pieces, don't forget you can click on the links on the ladies names, and it will take you to their blogs to see how they made their inspiration. Don't forget to come back though and enter the challenge. It's just about the colour red, and as you can see, that doesn't mean just hearts, it's anything you like with Indigoblu stamps and a bit of red. You could be our next winner of some lovely brand spanking new stamps!

Hope we have inspired you, 

Best Wishes,

Indigoblu Challenge Team
