PBSC December - Anything Goes...Optional 'Winter or Christmas'...More Inspiration!

Happy Saturday everyone! 

We're back with some more inspiration for our current challenge, and the announcement of the DT favourites from last month's challenge!

Here are the DTs favourite projects from November's 'Anything Goes' (Optional 'Anything but a Card') challenge:

Helen's favourite: #11 - Maura
Helen says: I love all of Maura's entries, but this scene she created is so clever!


Jenny's favourite: #29 - Ellibelle
Jenny says: I love the depth of the monochrome stamped background with the cute image and washi tape anchoring the sentiment.

Lynda's favourite:  #23 - Maura
Lynda says: Maura's use of color and design is beautifully shown on this artsy card.


Natalie's favourite: #22 - Maura
Natalie says: I've picked another of Maura's creations, I just love the inkyness! I also like the fact that the colour of cardstock she chose matches the berries on the image, lovely!


Sylvie's favourite: #39 - Helene
Sylvie says: Beautiful stamp, beautifully coloured!


Congratulations ladies - please grab our 'PBSC Favourite' badge for your blog!
