PBSC January - Anything Goes...Optional 'Something New'...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 December's 'Anything Goes' (Optional 'Christmas') challenge:

Helen B's favourite: #34 - Christy Sugiarto

Helen says: Christy made a fabulous collection of Christmas treat bags...this little birdie one is totally adorable!

Helen F's favourite: #9 - Loll

Helen says: Loll has created a wonderfully wintery feel for her card featuring this sweet little bird.

Jenny's favourite: #33 - Nonni

Jenny says: I love the layout and gorgeous colour combo of Nonni's card!

Lorraine's favourite: #5 - Nancy

Lorraine says: I love the pretty poinsettia stamp shown off by the cas design of the card. The die cut 'happy' looks fabulous sitting in the flower.

Natalie's favourite: #4 - Marianne
Natalie says: I love the simplicity of the design along with the non-traditional colour scheme of green and brown. A beautiful card!
