Hello,
 and a warm welcome to our October Anything Goes Challenge!

Thank you for all your fabulous entries last month! The DT had a really difficult time choosing favourites!

Are you a September winner?
 The winner's post and DT Favourites can be found on the winners page (click on the tab above). 
If you are a winner and/or a DT Favourite, please collect a badge to proudly display on your blog. 


We are delighted to introduce 4 new Crafts Galore Encore DT members. We welcome you to visit their blogs and leave them some love!

Monica Collins
 Sunshine Creativity

My name is Monica and I live in Fort Myers, on the southwest side of Florida. We have eternal summer and I love that. My first love in the crafting world is my set of Prismacolour pencils. Other than an occasional play with some Crayola watercolours or small set of watercolour pencils, my Prismas are my only colouring medium. I am inspired by colour and music and have been doing some form of both all my life. Papercrafting, fabric and yarn arts and mixed media are my favourite pastimes. Thank you for having me.

Dawn Morris
I'm a mother of 3 grown children and one beautiful grandbaby that I adore.
I love crafting, paper, fabric and glass that keeps my spare time thin.  
I love making things for the baby. 
Happy Crafting. 

Greeshma Nithin
Hi all! I'm Greeshma, married and living in Bangalore with my husband and beautiful one year old baby. I love to make pop-up cards and explosion boxes and I sell them online. I keep trying new tricks and techniques and love to keep each of my projects unique.

Claudia Martins
Hello, my name is Claudia. I'm Brazilian, I'm 47 years old, I've been an artisan for 10 years and I've been a scrapper for 1 year. I am married, I have 2 beautiful daughters and at the moment I am still doing college. My time is divided between the family, my college and my projects. I am very happy to be here and share what I know with you!

Welcome ladies!
We are looking forward to seeing your creative makes!

And now on to October's challenge.

This month we are sponsored by the lovely Nikki from Limited Runs Digital Stamps. Nikki's stamps are quirky, fun and exceptional value for money - hop on over to her shop to see what's on offer.


 Thanks to Nikki for providing images for the DT and for offering a prize of 3 digi images to our challenge winner.

We hope you can find some crafty time to enter our challenge this month and we look forward to seeing your projects!

Sadly, we have said goodbye to three DT members. Mary, Kerri-Ann, and Tabitha have had to step down due to personal commitments. We want to thank them for the time they spent with us and we wish them all the very best for the future.

That means we are now looking for two new DT members to join our friendly team. 
Previous experience is not necessary, but we do ask that you be willing to commit to a period of 6 months with the option to stay longer. As we are a monthly challenge this entails making just one project each month.

In order to join us you will need to :-
  • Have a Blog
  • Have a Facebook Account
Be prepared to :-
  • Produce one piece of work each month using the sponsor's digi stamp, photograph it and blog it.
  • Comment on entries to the CGE Challenge each month.
We have a lovely DT and it is a great one to belong to, so please consider joining us!
The DT Call will run for the month of August, with successful applicants joining us for their first Challenge in October.
If you have any questions please ask!

If you are interested in joining our team, please put DT after your name in the inlinkz or, if you prefer, email Carole at cardsgaloreencore@yahoo.co.uk
We look forward to hearing from you!

We hope you can find some crafty time this month and we look forward to seeing your entries!
