October Challenge

Hello everyone, it's challenge time once again.  With Christmas not too far off now it's time to really start thinking about those Christmas cards.  

So... this month our challenge theme is:

Getting ready for Christmas

This can be anything associated with the preparations for Christmas - presents, baking, Christmas lights, trimming the tree etc.

For something a little different this month we will have two challenges running at the same time.
The first challenge will be a single card challenge and we will be drawing a random prize winner and our top three from here.

The second challenge will be for those who make a set of five cards.
You may make five cards the same or five different ones, you just need to upload a photo clearly showing five.
Now you can enter both challenges but you cannot enter one of your five cards in the single entry challenge. (To enter the single entry challenge your card must be different from the other five.)

If you double up and enter with the same card it will be removed from the challenge before I draw the prize to make it fair.

You may enter each challenge as many times as you like so long as each challenge entry is different.

Oh and there will be a random prize drawn for the five card challenge as well.

Prize for both challenges will be two cling mount Christmas stamps from

Platypus Creek Stamping & Craft 

I will be back in a couple of days to announce the winners from September

So start getting prepared for Christmas cardmakers and enter one or both of our challenges this month.

Here are cards from our DT who have also been busy getting ready for Christmas.

Great Inspirational Cards - Thank you for another challenge - enjoy your week

Thank you for this lovely challenge - I understand there are two different challenges - and I understand you cannot enter the 5 card one as singles - I would like to know if you can enter as many times as you like for both challenges or just once for each challenge. Thank you and I will check back here for the answer. Have a lovely day and thanks to the DT for their inspiration. Enjoy your week!

You may enter both as many times as you like so long as the entries are all different.

This month I am only getting thumbnail images for the groups of 5 entries. Is there a reason thumbnails are not showing for the single card entries?
