PBSC January - Anything Goes...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!

But, before I get on to that...I'm giving another shout out to the winner of last month's 'Winter or Christmas' challenge:

#12 - NanaConnie

Congratulations NanaConnie! Please email me (Helen) to claim your prize...and don't forget to grab the winner's badge from the sidebar.

Here are the DTs favourite projects from December's 'Winter or Christmas' challenge:

Greta's Favourite:  #73, 81 & 82 - Michele 
Greta says: I love how Michele used the same design for 3 different cards but with different stamps for each focal point.  The embossed background is gorgeous behind her perfectly colored images.

Helen's Favourite: #35 - Aileen

Helen Says: I love the white embossing against the vibrant watercolour background!

Lorraine's Favourite: #2 - Maura
Lorraine says: I love the wintry scene that Maura has created.

Sylvie's Favourite: #16 - Susan B

Sylvie says: I love Susans card...the beautifully coloured Robin makes it so life-like...stunning card.

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: 

#36 - Lou
