  1. Absolutely fabulous samples by the Design Team. It's lovely to be joining you and I hope I've done this right? I wanted to link to the Stencil Sunday challenge but I seem to have linked to the Mixed Media Challenge, is this the same challenge? The label at the top of the post was for Stencil Sunday but the link at the bottom of the post seemed to link to Mixed Media. Please can you reply to let me know so that I can remove, or change my link if necessary. Thanking you in anticipation :)x
