OUR FIRST CHALLENGE - THE LETTER 'F' #JOS001


http://www.joyofsetschallenge.blogspot.com/
Welcome, Welcome.  We are delighted you have found us and hope you will play along with our very FIRST challenge. 


Our first Joy of Sets Challenge will run from 4th July until 16th July and will continue every two weeks.

As with the Facebook Page The Joy Of Sets  you may use any Stampin' Up! stamp set current or retired, but with a twist.  Every two weeks we will choose a new letter and that must be reflected in the stamp set you use.  For our first challenge the name of the set must have the letter F in there somewhere.  For Example - Foxy Friends, (easy that one), Bella & Friends, or Floral Statements. It is not enough for there just to be an F in the title - the name of the set must begin with an F.  We will allow other SU stamps sets alongside the main one, especially if it doesn't have a sentiment.

For our European friends playing as long as your stamp set also still has the main initial letter you can still use the set.

The Design Team have made some awesome projects for you for inspiration. Why not pop over to their blogs to find out which Stamp Set they chose and leave a comment - they would love to hear from you. Just click on their projects below to be taken to their blog and leave them some love.
