Good morning,

It's Challenge Day!  This month's theme is a nice easy one, Monochrome.  We have some beautiful inspiration for you, but first, our winners from last months challenge, Autumn Wildlife.

Congratulations Sue!  We will be in touch shortly to arrange your prize.

Our Top 3 this month, as chosen by the DT, and who get a Guest Designer spot in our Challenge reminder post are:

1. No 4 - Angela
2. No 3 - Kelly
3. No 1 - Shelagh

Congratulations to you all, we will be in touch shortly.

As always, we have prizes on offer each month,  Indigoblu stamps of your choice as follows:

3 options to choose from:
1: 2 Large stamp plates (A5)
2: 4 Small stamp plates (A6)
3: 1 Large and 2 small plates

There’s also the Winner’s Badge, and one for the Top 3, to display proudly on your blog, and the WINNER of the challenge will also be invited to do a GUEST SPOT on a future Challenge Launch post. That’s right, your work will be on the Challenge Blog alongside the Design Team!

Also the Top Three each month (chosen by our lovely DT) will all be invited to do an inspiration piece to be included on the reminder post that goes live mid challenge. So, if you’d like a chance to be featured on the IndigoBlu Challenge Blog get those stamps out and get creating!

You’ll find all the information on how to enter the challenge, the rules (don’t worry, there’s not that many) and get to meet theDesign Team in the tabs on the sidebar.

So first up it's our winner from last month with her gorgeous Guest Inspiration for you, Amanda.

Amanda told us:  I was happily surprised that I was drawn as the winner of the Bright & Beautiful Blog Challenge, and must confess that I have had the Jane Stamp for a few years - but hadn't had the courage to use her up until I stumbled upon the Challenge and I'm so glad I did- the inspiration from everyone is fabulous, so for everyone thinking they can't you really CAN!! Grab those wonderful Indigo Blu Stamps and have a go! 

Please hop over to Amanda's blog to see how she made this lovely piece, and leave her some love if you have time. x

Next up it's our lovely Sheila.  I mistakenly asked Sheila to design for this month's challenge, but I'm so glad she did!  We have been thrilled to have her make something for us in both September and October!

Sheila told us:  I received my parcel with the stamps I bought from my win last month, and decided to use Floral fantasy, and Elsie.  Such beautiful stamps, I put them all together today, I hope you like them as much as I do.

Sheila doesn't have a blog, but does log in to the IB blog every day, and is a loyal IndigoBlu fan, so please leave her lots of love in your comments below, I know she will see them and appreciate them.

And here is the inspiration from our fabulous DT:



Wow!  Some stunning inspiration here, I hope it's got you all fired up to take on the challenge of Monochrome! 

Don't forget, all we need is that you use IndigoBlu stamps in your makes, and that's all the rules there are.

Can't wait to see what you create!

Best Wishes,
The IndigoBlu Challenge Design Team
