November challenge - Festive Flowers and foliage

Good morning and welcome to our November challenge which is a seasonal one.........................

******Festive Flowers and foliage******

With so many lovely Christmas floral stamps not to mention all the lovely holly ivy and other seasonal foliage ones available you should not be lost for choice this month. And of course you can use any design papers you wish, you don't have to have those used by the design team.

Usual rules apply, you can enter up to three times, combine with other challenges, use any make of stamp......but can I please remind you.........we are a stamping challenge so must see a stamped image, sentiment or quote as the focal element of your artworkIt so upsets us to see names come out in the draw who are not eligible for the prize because they have not read the rules. 

We have a new sponsor this month 'be Creative!' who have just launched a brand new range of craft products. 'be Creative!' will be launching their new web site very soon but in the meantime you can keep up to date by following their Facebook where you will see some of the new products and you can also order from here. You can also contact Gordon and Justin by e.mail here. The products were recently well received at their launch on Hochanda and will also be available at the NEC Hobbycraft show on 5th through 8th November.

This months lucky winner will receive the wonderful hamper of goodies pictured above valued about £60 which will include be Creative! Signature tote bag, be Creative! glue wand, paper pad, tags, embellishments, self-adhesive 3D borders and Ink blending tool with refills.

We are very pleased to welcome Babs as a Guest Designer this month, she was the lucky winner or our September challenge and she has made this lovely festive card.......................

Cebelica is also joining us again, I was guilty of messing up completely when I gave her details about the October theme and instead give her the one for November, she did make a card for October but as she had made this lovely card is was such a shame not to use it.

The Design Team have been lucky enough to work with some of the new papers from 'be Creative!' and here is whathey have come up with using the excellent quality double sided 8x8 papers which are sold in pads of 24.

I've definitely had a blonde moment! After spending ages creating my card for this month's challenge, I've only just realised that I don't actually have any stamping on it!!!! I can't seem to find a way of deleting it from the challenge and so I would really appreciate it if Brenda or one of the DT could do that for me. (Entry No. 27.) Please accept my sincere apologies for the error which I'll just put down to my age, I'm sure that lots of ladies will understand what I mean :)
