Unfortunately we dont have a sponsor for this month as the Digi Doodle Shop has closed it doors.
They have sponsored our challenge many times and we all loved their digi's so its sad to see them go.

This month i am going to offer the winner a Guest Designer spot on the next challenge.

So the theme this month is...
With Optional Extra of "Recycling"

This can be anything at all related to Halloween, card, gifts, trick or treat bags...its your choice!  

Here is our Design Teams inspiration for you!

Any cards linked not meeting the above requirements will be removed and you will not be eligible for any of the fantastic prizes offered by our sponsors!
