October Challenge Winner

Thanks once again to everyone who entered cards in this months challenge. We had some wonderful entries yet again and it really was hard to pick a winner. Several people asked if they could have two votes because they couldn't make up their mind. So you girls are definitely putting in some beautiful cards. Still we could only have one vote and a winner was decided and it is ....
Mavis entered this lovely Christmas wobbler card (No. 3).
Congratulations Mavis, your $20 gift voucher will be ready for you next time you come into the shop.
You know, I laugh when you all say can you have two votes because you just can't decide, but then it comes time for me to choose a runner up award...and I can tell you I quickly stop laughing! I am then in the same boat...choosing one card out of so many lovely cards for the encouragement award. I was going to give the award this month to Rhonda for her telescopic card (No.2), as it came 2nd in the voting and its a great card. But in the spirit of the encouragement award, and what it stands for I decided to give it to....
for her amazing clock project. What a huge amount of work and effort she put into this project, and I know time wise it would have taken hours to do. Well done Shakerah!
Everyone else has put in a huge effort too and it's a shame we can't give prizes to everyone.
Here are all the other cards for you to look at.
1 - Glenda 
2 - Rhonda

4 - Pat

6 - Rhonda

7 - Maralene

8 - Dorothy

10 - Pat

 The theme for October is CIRCLES. Your entry must have at least ONE circle on it, but can have more, or it can be a circular card/project. There are many circular dies out there on the market, including clocks, and fancy decorative circles. Or how about a circle made of leaves (a wreath) or a circle made of flowers....I'm sure there are plenty of things you can think of.

  • The card/project must be your own design and made by you.
  • All entries must be anonymous - nobody should know which cards is yours.
  • You can enter as many times as you like.
  • If you hand me the card in person please put it in a paper bag or envelope with your name inside.
  • All cards handed to me will be returned after the competition. If posting your entry please include a SAE envelope if you would like it returned.
