September challenge, July winner.

Hello everyone, well we're back at the start of another month and here in the UK there a distinct nip of Autumn in the air.  I'm not complaining though as I love the Autumn season especially the fabulous Autumn colours :)
Anyway as usual we'll do the challenge winner a top 3 first, this time for the July challenge.
the winner is;
15 - Julie O
and the top three are;
13 - Barbara R
99 - Claire C
If you email me HERE , I will send back your badges for your blogs and sort out a little something for the winner too :)  If you could pop 'challenge winner' or 'challenge top 3' in the subject bar that would be fab as I am less likely to lose them in the vast amount of emails on the list lol.
Now, my poor DT have to put up with my scatty ways and I managed to mix up challenge months by adding an extra August to the year, so my poor team had to try to decide which theme to pick out!
So, what I thought I would do is make the challenge this month;
Anything Goes!!
So any crafty project you like, with any theme you fancy - easy :)
fab cards as always though from the DT for inspiration, especially for those who might be new to crafting and /or blogging - if you are new to us please give us a shout in the comments below.  If you're an old hand at it all we'd love to her from you too - let us know how long you've been crafting, whether it be a day, a month, a week, a year...  well you get the picture.

So, we'd love to see all your fabulous creations as always :)
Don't forget to tell us how long you've been crafting - it would be lovely to get to know you all !!

  3. Wow! The designers certainly know how to apply color and utilize the layers! BEAUTIFUL cards with pretty shading. Thanks for the inspiration on each of your creations - and for the great challenge, too! hugs, de {Creative Smiles}

  4. Congratulations to the winners.
    Thanks for another fun challenge, I love the colours of Fall too, and the inspirations are fabulous! Karen x

  5. Love the DT cards and the lion made me giggle! I have been crafting since I was 8 when I used to make my dolls clothes - using paper patterns!!! That was 56 years ago and I must have tried every craft going until I found card making and I have been doing this for about 15 years or so now. My craft room looks more like a warehouse - my husband has taken pictures!!!!

    Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

  6. Thank you for another fabulous challenge and the fantastic inspirations.
    I have emailed Sam a couple of times about winning the July challenge but not heard back or got my badge Karen x

  7. Gorgeous DT cards. I have been crafting just over 3 years. Stacey xxx

  8. I have been crafting as long as I can remember but still feel like a newbie when I see how fast the paper crafting is evolving. Thanks for a fabulous challenge!

  9. Fabulous makes by the DT. Ive been crafting all my life but papercrafting for the last 6 years. I started off by copy drawing from my comics when I was little, then whilst at high sch I loved the sewing classes & used to do a lot of the work at home then onto cross stitch but when my dexterity started to go I went on to card making. I still sew occasionally now but only every few months ;0 x

  10. Hello, DT,
    I would like to eliminate some entries because I realized I entered more than three times, but when I put the arrow on my entry there is not the paper basket. What can I do to eliminate them?
    Thank you!


  11. Hi Mariangela, don't worry - if you give me the numbers you want to remove I'll just discount them from the entries :) Thanks for letting us know xxx

    1. Hello, Sam,
      the numbers I want to eliminate are 4, 5, 27 and 40. Thank you!
