Saturday Spotlight #16

Hello Everyone!

It is that time of the week again!
Congratulations to all of you who entered the
Anything Goes with Sassy Studio Designs challenge! 

We had a fabulous 213 entries.
What a great selection of  projects!
It was really so much fun to visit all your blogs!

Thank you to all our regular entrants, we really appreciate your support!
It is always great to see new faces too!
And all you busy bees, thanks for all the multiple entries, keep them coming!
I'm doing things a bit different today.
There are 2 themes creeping in (LOL, pun intended) at the moment: Christmas and Halloween.
Me being all for fairness, I'm separating the spotlight in broad categories today.
 In the Christmas category, the  spotlight falls on #1 Desire Fourie:
This is such striking creation with so much detail!
All your beautiful photos makes it a pleasure to visit your blog.
 The runner-ups in the Christmas category:
#27 Mary Marsh - What a pretty scene you have created!
#11 Mags - Really beautiful and classic card
#79 Monica - Striking monochrome card!
In the Halloween category, the spotlight falls on #70 NikkiByrne:
There is so much detail in this creation, wow, so many layers. The box is also quite creepy...
Fabulous photos showcase your project so well!
The runner-ups in the Halloween category:
#185 Kate - your creation was a close contestant for the spotlight - amazing fun detail!
#151 Sonia Ketznus - This is such a fun creation, a great idea!
#136 Sammibug - This is so sweet! Clever folds and cool papers! 
In the general card category, the first spotlight falls on: #135 Lucy Patrick
The colours, the colouring all combines to make this an eye catching card!
In the general card category, the second spotlight falls on #197 Sherryn
What a lovely creation with a vintage feel, so special! 
 In the general card category, the third spotlight falls on # 164 Alyce
Pretty and sweet describes this best! Fantastic detail!
The runner-ups in the General category in numerical order:
#17 J Atterbury Creations - this is so sweet and striking. Loads of interesting detail
#43 Karen P - we loved the monochrome simplicity of your card!
#48 Doreen - what a pretty tag in soft feminine colours! 
#82Jackie C - Excellent combination of colours & papers - love it!
#114 Ursula Uphof - My first pick - I love guinea fowl, yes totally biased choice.
#150 CG - My second pick - purple is my favourite colour too, but I really enjoyed your story that lead to the creation of this very striking card! Fabulous detail, love the metal feathers!
#155 Heidi D - The blue & brown is just great on this cute card!
#201 Irene M - This is such a clever and beautiful idea for a new baby card!
Last but not least, there is a category for all
those fabulous creations that we will call 3-D and more!

In this category the spotlight falls on #89 Mansi:
Maybe we should have dimmed the lights for this awesome creation!
Your other luminary is as pretty!
Only one side is shown here, do go and view the others of this romantic light!
The runner-ups in this category are:
#41 Eva's Scraproom - we all loved this striking creation!
#131 Gail Scott - What a pretty bag!
