Sunday Stamper - Week 300 - Dream Lover **With Mega Candy!**

Gooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday to you all!  Many thanks for all your grand entries for last weeks challenge, sure did make me happy to visit you all and see your gorgeous works of art.  SO! Today sees the 300th Sunday Stamper challenge.  And as promised last week, I have been gathering sponsors for this weeks challenge being as it is a special occasion and all that.  Let's start off by telling you the theme...which this week is my "word of the year" DREAM.  Joining in with the challenge is the same as ever... only this week you will be in with a chance of winning some great candy!  The rules are simples: make a little something, it can be anything you fancy.  Add in the theme AND some stamping and then pop back here, leave me a comment with a linky to the place you are showing your entry and I can hop over to visit you.  As ever, if you haven't got a blog, you can also join in via tagging me on Facebook on your upload or by emailing me a small resolution piccie. 
To be in with a chance of winning the candy, here's what you have to do:
Make something and join in with the challenge as stated in the rules above. 
Regardless of how you show your entry, you must leave a comment on this post = so if you are joining in via email, for example, you need to leave a comment here, I can't add your comment for you, same applies for Facebook entries.  
Just leaving a comment won't enter you into the draw... so this is the perfect excuse for getting inky and stampy.  
The winner will be picked at random and announced on next weeks Sunday Stamper post. 
The closing time date for all entries is 21:00GMT Saturday 29th March 2014.



You wanna see what you could win?  Firstly, please allow me say to a big mahooosive thank you to the lovely sponsors of this week's challenge: Crafty Bunch Telford, Craft Obsessions, Art From The Heart and Jones & Co Nottingham.  As regular Sunday Stamper fans will know, this is usually a "just for fun" challenge, with me adding the odd bit of candy every so often but as it is a momentous occasion, I figured I would say a big thank you also to all you lovely folks who join in with my challenge.  Right... I kept you waiting long enough... here's what you could win:







From Crafty Bunch Telford: 5 fabby stamp sets from Kaiser Craft!!!
From Craft Obsessions: a £25 voucher to spend on goodies!!!
From Art From The Heart: Dylusions stamp set This Old House, Dylusions Sprays: Tangerine Dream, Pomegranate Seed, Chopped Pesto, Slate Grey, Polished Jade, Ground Coffee **yes, all the NEW ones!!!**
From Jones & Co: Buttons! Lots of delish buttons!!!
And From me: The artwork that is my entry for this weeks challenge, Kaisercraft Stamps, Card butterflies, Spools, Vials, Texture Paste Clear & Silver, Wendy Vecchi Archival Inks in Red Geranium, Potting Soil and Watering Can, Chapel Road Artstamps U/M stamp set and a papier mache hanging board.
This prize package, worth over £100, is offered to one randomly chosen entrant to the challenge. If the winner doesn't claim their prize within 7 days of announcing, the draw will be done again.



So... whatcha finks?  Seriously cool prize package right?  Cor blimey!!!  300 Sunday Stamper challenges... that is one heck of a lot of art, stamping, inking and song titles!  Over the years I have been asked a fair few times why I bother to host a "just for fun" challenge when there are so many out there that have prizes every week.  The answer to that is simples: it is all about having fun and getting creative... and when I started this challenge there weren't that many challenges about (yes, 2008 is a very long time ago in Blogland lol)  Another question I get asked is why I don't have a design team for the challenge... that is easy to answer too... cos I am bone idle and it would mean having to plan weeks in advance what the theme will be... seriously, sometimes I don't even know the day before what the challenge theme will be!  One day I will be organised!!! 



Anyways... that is enough wafflings from me.  Again, thank you to my lovely sponsors... and thank you to all of you who join in with the challenge, I don't think you know just how much it means to me that you all take part!  I shall away now... thanks for looking - happy stamping!  TTFN

Fabulous prize package - I will have to do this one for sure!

aileen (mum) said...

Brilliant that you do this. I love that you do this without the idea of the winner having to get a prize. Life should be about others appreciating and sharing their talent. Always love looking at what everyone is up to. Love your blog.

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Hels, This is a superb project, and a magnificent prize, all those gorgeous goodies, I'm drooling.
Have a lovely day.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Mrs B said...

Hi Hels. CONGRATULATIONS on reaching Week 300! You are the proof that you don't need to give away prizes for people to join in. They do so just to share their art! I have never entered but might make myself on this special week! Take care.

Helen said...

What an achievement, Hels' - congratulations on such a milestone. Yours was one of the first blogs I came across when I entered this fabby crafty online world, and your challenges are always such fun, I check every one, even if I don't always get time to take part. What an amazing bundle of prizes you've collected - whoever wins will be so lucky. Off to get my thinking cap on. ..

Helen said...

Carole Z said...

Hi Hels, wow..300th! Amazing! And what a fab prize! I really like the way you do this challenge and have been taking part for a long long time. To be honest, I like it because it's just for fun and if I had the choice of time to make something for this and one that is offering regular prizes, I would always enter Sunday Stampers...it's about the fun, learning the techniques, sharing and not the prizes, hugs and happy Sunday, Carole Z XX

Lisapmac said...

Wow 300th challenge! You do make me laugh. Love your inky goings on, inspirational as always, love the colours you have used xx

Kathy said...

Hello, a visitor from the states here. I fell in love with your art work today after finding your blog! You should be a designer/educator for Ranger (or maybe you already are?!) I was wondering, it seems that you are on TV in the UK or internet tv. Under the show schedule you placed a link for viewers outside the US but it doesn't seem to work. Would love to see you get inky online, just need to figure out where and when to find you!

Doreen said...

Love your gorgeous work Hels and what a fabulous prize on offer this week, Thanks for the challenge,I had so much fun with this. you can find me here.

Hi Hels - Congratulations on keeping Sunday Stampers going for 300 editions. I look in every week (although I don't always join in) and it would be rude not to play this time, wouldn't it? Especially after learning so much from you at your workshop at Dandie Crafts. Here's my effort -

Thanks very much for the challenges you post each week, I really look forward to all your postings. This is the 1st time I have entered the challenge, but have been meaning to for some time.
