Sir Stampalot Blog Hop


Happy New Year to one and all !!

This is a sticky post, so please scroll down for my other postings

I am here with a new challenge for Sir Stampalot, and that's not all, as we are also having a Blog Hop, so I will deal with the new challenge theme first and them move on to the Hop.

Our challenge theme for January which will run for the the whole month as usual is

"A Winters Tale"

We would like you to take inspiration from Queens 1995 hit song title or if you prefer Shakespeare's slant on things, as always how you interpret it is completely your choice. All we ask is that you have fun and of course remember the rules and that you can combine your entry with up to five other challenges.

"This months lucky winner will receive this super prize from the lovely guys at Sir Stampalot.............................yes this month it's a surprise, but you know it will be fabulous !!"
"I will tease you and say it includes a set of very special stamps worth £70 that you can't buy anywhere !!"


Now for the Blog Hop, this is going to be such fun and so many prizes to be won.

It starts today and will finish at midnight BST on 10th January.

Here are the rules for the Hop :-

2) Visit all DT blogs and Smudges

3) Leave a comment on each.

4) Collect a letter clue from each

5) Use those letters along with the ones already given in the grid below to make two words and mail your answer to Brenda at: brenda@ibas.co.uk

You should have come here from Brenda's blog and have collected her letter, and now you need to go to Smudges next.



But if you get lost you can come back here at Sir Stampalot and start afresh.


Now for my letter, which you will need to collect, it is:- O

The word will fit into the following grid:-



_ _ R _ _ A _ _ A _ _ _


And my prize is :-





There will be a prize up for grabs on each blog you visit, the winner will be selected from all those who leave a comment.

There will be a further prize for the winner selected from all correct answers mailed to me brenda@ibas.co.uk which will be:-
