of our favorite sponsors.

Lisa from Paper Bliss
I uploaded my October projects here and totally forgot to ask if anyone would mind putting them in the blog post... lol Could someone do the honours please? I still have no upload to blogger function. Thanks xx

This week we're also excited to
welcome three Guest Designers.
Please be sure to stop by their blogs
and leave them a little crafty love.

Anna from Anna's Handmade Cards
My name is Anna, I'm 39 this year and I am from Poland. I am a primary school teacher and - as a former ballroom dancer - I run a little dance and fitness studio in my town. I started my cardmaking over 2 years ago, when I fainted from overworking and a doctor said to me, that I should find something relaxing... I didn't think this is gonna be so addictive! I love all these ribbons, papers, stamps and inks. I am trying to improve my skills visiting other crafter's blogs and watching YouTube videos (and I can't even imagine what it would look like without internet). I love the way crafting connects people all over the world! Thank you for inviting me to be your GDT, I am so honoured!


Carol Gill from Crafty-Stamper
Hi I'm Carol and have been crafting for many years in different forms,knitting,crotchet,cake making and decorating,mini albums and now card making.I started stamping but my new passion is Digi Images.I am delighted to be a Guest Designer for Crafting By designs.


Carol from Something Gone Missing
Carol here from http://www.somethinggonemissing.blogspot.co.uk , sharing a paper craft Christmas creation. I became seriously addicted to crafting about ten years ago when I needed to find a different path in life due to an illness which totally changed my lifestyle. Crafting gave me a purpose and opened new doors of friendship and plenty of wear and tear on my credit card! I like to try my hand to most crafty card ideas and love spending time with crafty friends creating and an awful lot of chat lol!

How's that for some great inspiration? This challenge
will be open until October 25, and you can enter
as many times as you like, as long as your project
was made and posted during the challenge period,
and you link that post to this challenge blog.

Reminder - Get Ready for Christmas!

Hi everyone, Doris here today with special
reminder post about our current challenge
Get Ready for Christmas
 
We're excited to welcome our Guest Designer
and wait until you see this amazing project with a secret message!
 


 To find out what and where the secret message is,
pop over to Debi's blog, That Might Look Good on a Card, for the answer.
 
About Debi -
I am retired, the mother of 2, grandmother of 5, and great-grandmother to an adorable 7 mo. old great-grandddaughter who occasionally makes an appearance on my blog. I have always enjoyed crafting, sewing, and crocheting but just started stamping and cardmaking about 7 years ago. I really enjoy experimenting with different card folds and paper folds; the cuttlebug is my favorite tool because I love collecting and using embossing folders; and I especially enjoy teaching cardmaking to a local Red Hat Society group, as well as, Make & Takes at stamping and scrapbooking shows in PA, MD, and NJ.
This is a great time to get a little head start on your
holiday card stash and join our challenge.  You can
enter your Christmas projects HERE until September 30.
