Katarina said...

I have a couple of questions:

a) is the card for the challenge the one that will be concidered as the DT entry or can we make different ones?

b) can we apply with more cards or just one for the DT spot?

c) The deadline, next thursday should be november 6:th, right?

I'll be back :)

Pauline C said...

Hiya huns! I would love to be considered for the DT. I lurve the PBSC and enter most weeks, but (sob!!) can't this week as i don't "do" Hallowe'en and so amongst my (far too many LOL) PB stamps there isn't a single Hallowe'en one .. nor a sentiment, paper, or any other spooky item! I reckon it's the only occasion my PB's don't cover LOL! However if you go to my blog here you will see the many PB cards I have made. Hope this is ok, but if not good luck to everyone else :-)

So, here comes a workout from Germany.
In my country halloween is gaining more and more interest. A few years ago nobody knew about halloween traditions...and I like the little PB halloween stamps so much, they are as cute as all the others.

So I would like to apply for DT membership with this card

Greetings from Germany by Marina.
