PBSC December - 'Anything Goes'...Optional '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!

But first, I have some sad Design Team news...our lovely Kylie is leaving us.

On behalf of the PBSC Design Team, I would like to say a BIG 'Thank You' to you Kylie for all of your many inspirational cards, and for your friendship - we shall miss you, but wish you all the best! xxx


Here are the DTs favourite projects from November's 'Anything Goes' (Optional 'Not a Card') challenge:

Helen B's favourite: #6 - Pauline C

Helen says: I love Pauline's beautifully inky set of seasonal bookmarks - the perfect gift for any bookworm!

Jenny's favourite: #35 - Meghan
Jenny says: Beautiful CAS card! Mimi looks so cute against the gorgeous textured background!

Lorraine's favourite: #5 - Annie
Lorraine says: I love the inky background and fabulous stamping. The vibrant colours that Annie has used on her tag are just gorgeous.


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


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

#20 - Joan K
