Get Creative November 5th Card Challenge and October Winner and Top Five

Hello lovely ladies this is a bit of a long post so if you don’t have a cuppa in your hand I suggest you go and get one !!!  Welcome to another challenge over at Get Creative but before I go any further I would just like to thank everyone that took part in our month-long card celebration in October. Each DT member and there are thirteen of us set our own challenge and chose one winner who will receive a prize offered by us. The response was amazing,  so many entries and I would just like to thank each and every one of you who took part in my CAS challenge. I was totally blown away by the quantity and quality of your creations, believe you me it was soooooo difficult to choose just one winner but rules are rules and my winner was Susan Martin with this gorgeous card

Susan your gift is on its way too you !

Back to Get Creative HQ and time for the November 5th card challenge and our lovely leader Irini is asking us to use a stamp we have never used before on our cards !!!! so much choice , I think I have more unused than used ! it took me days to decide but after much deliberating I finally chose this beauty by Darkroomdoor.

To be honest I wish I had chosen something simpler as I decided to use my copics and  we all know how much of a novice I am with them. I stamped the image at least a dozen times and then tried various colour combinations , all of them naff and destined for the bin. This was the best of a bad bunch so you can imagine what the others where like !!! After I finished colouring with the copics I gently added pink Pan Pastels to the image to soften the colours a little ( yes these colours are softened  !!)

Please pop over to Get Creative to see which stamps my fellow team members had languishing away untouched in their crafty stash and why not join in.

We have been sponsored by the gorgeous Natasha  who is offering this wonderful prize, you have until the 29th of the month to upload your card .

Right am off for a cuppa am exhausted don’t know about you !!!

Take care
