Special Challenge & 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 are 
                         who are celebrating their move to a spacious new shop in Peterborough.

We have lots of fun planned and some super prizes. 
The first prize for the challenge which is estimated to value about £160 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 design Team  Really wanted these prizes for themselves


There will also be two runners up 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., I know you all want to know what you need to do to be in with a chance of winning:



The challenge theme is:


Moving
Here is my Project
 
 
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 bid draw:

1) Your project must be linked to Mr Linky on Brenda's Blog.

2) You must include a link to Brenda's blog post and Sir Stampalot ("http://www.sirstampalot.co.uk/)  in your entry post on your own blog.

3) You may enter more than once, providing second or subsequent entries are a different type of project (i.e a card and a scrapbook l/o, not two cards

The Blog Hop: Visit the Design Team blogs and:

1) Pick up a letter clue at each one.

2) Leave a comment at each blog you visit on their challenge/blog hop posts,
so you can be entered into the draws for those prizes

Lorraine's Blog 

The Letter you need from me is
