PBSC December - 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!

Firstly, here are the DTs favourite projects from November's 'Thank You' challenge:

Greta's Favourite: #14 - CG's Cards 4 U

Greta says: CaroleAnn's coloring of the adorable Penny Black image is really beautiful.  The dry embossed kraft panel makes a great background & I love the doily peeking out.

Helen's Favourite: #1 - Lisa

Helen Says: Lisa has a selection of cards made using this beautiful brushstroke 'Peony' stamp...and I just love the touch of gold on this one!

Sue's Favourite: #3 - Inbox Whimsy 

Sue says: I love the darling little scene and the bright and bold Thank You to set it all off!

Sylvie's Favourite: #11 - Jacky 
Sylvie says: I love this sweet stamp ...beautifully coloured & well matched papers. 

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

And the guest designer chosen from the wonderful 'GDT' entries on last month's challenge is: 

#12 - Lisa
