Challenge #72

Welcome to challenge #72 here at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog.

Thank you to everyone that played along with us for our "Buttons & Ribbon" Challenge #71. We had some AMAZING entries!! Please go to the post below to see who Mr. Random has chosen as our Featured Artists!!

So, now on to the new Challenge. With Valentines Day just around the corner the theme time around is "Love is in the Air"!! So, dig out your hearts and all that mushy stuff and show us what you've got!
What are you waiting for, let's get craftin'!!

We can't wait to see the AMAZING projects that you wonderful crafter's create!

This week... for our "Love is in the Air" Challenge we are lucky enough to have 2 sponsors...

Our first sponsor is...

That's right, one lucky random person will win a $10 Gift Certificate from Little Miss Muffet Stamps!!

And here is a little info about Little Miss Muffet Stamps!!

This little shoppe was inspired by a house full of Little Miss Muffets and arachnophobes alike. It isn't too difficult to image how I ended up here since I've been drawing and coloring from the moment I picked up a crayon. Now as I sit in my hobby room I get to share my passion with my own Little Miss Muffets who love to work along side of me.

My motto is still "A stamp a day keeps the stress away" and feel free to visit my gallery at for daily inspiration.

I want to send a special thank you to Peggy (Grandma's Pearl) and Zoe (Make it Crafty) for endless hours of support, encouragement and brain storming. Thank you! They planted the seed to get this going so if needed, I can blame them for any missed hours of sleep. ;D

I hope the store works seamlessly but if there are any problems, just send me a line. It has been setup with a shopping cart and once your cart is full you can check out using PayPal checkout. Looking to send a gift to someone? There's also a button for that too!

Our second sponsor is...

That's right, one lucky random person will win a £10 voucher to spend in the Lili of the Valley Store!!

And here's a little info on Lili of the Valley...

Laila Ansbergs started Lili of the Valley in 2004 and it has grown since then to be a well respected and much loved company in the UK crafting world. All the initial designs were Laila's and they soon became really popular... at UK Craft Shows, on Crafting TV and of course on

Joined by her friend Lisa Barnes, the business has expanded and Lili of the Valley now works with other artists to bring you a wide range of gorgeous designs, both for stamps and die cut designs. Laila still translates all the images into the black and white stamp designs, but the business of running Lili of the Valley now takes too long for her to design artwork too!

Lili of the Valley Ltd popularity continues to grow as crafters from around the world discover the company's lovely designs.

Now... here is some AMAZING INSPIRATION from our design team:

First, I would like to introduce you to our Guest Designer for this week, Laurence!
