PBSC October - Anything Goes...Optional 'Spooky Colour Combination'...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 September's 'Anything Goes' (Optional 'Sketch') challenge:

Helen's favourite: #7 - Ellie
Helen says: I love the cheerful colours on the fun image...and the yummy cupcake paper!

Jenny's favourite: #42 - Maura

Jenny says: I love the monochromatic blues - a perfect sympathy card.

Lorraine's favourite: #5 - Room in a Cupboard
Lorraine says: I always love to see a robin on a Christmas project and this one is gorgeous. The mixed media background looks fab too.

Lynda's favourite:  #34 - Mac Mabel 
Lynda says: I love the softness of this card and the simplicity, which makes it so very elegant.

Natalie's favourite: #34 - Mac Mable
Natalie says: I love the watercolour effect and the simple style that enables all the attention to be on the stamped design.

Sue's favourite:#59 - Irene's Scrapbook

Sue says: You have to look at this card closely-Irene used the spotlight technique with the words JOY. Very clever!

Sylvie's favourite: #54 - Lovely Linda
Sylvie says: Love what Linda has done with the stencil...lovely colours too!
