Right onto information about the challenge.

The Bearly Mine Designs challenge for October 2014 is “Halloween”. We don’t go into Halloween so much here in the UK but it’s nice to have a topic for a challenge that is celebrated elsewhere in the world.
If you are stuck for some Halloween papers, Bearly Mine Designs recently released a set called "Halloween Fantasy".  This is a fantastic set of papers as you have the traditional Halloween colours of orange and black but you also have green, purple, blue and red so you can make very different Halloween cards/creations.
There is another Halloween set in the shop and personally it is still one of my all time favourites.  It is called “Halloween Hauntings”. What I personally like about this set is that there are Halloween inspired papers but there are also papers in the set that could be used throughout the year which makes it so much more cost effective.

Here is some inspiration from the Design Team. They have created some wonderful cards/creations for you to see.

Insprational Post by JULES

Well as promised last month I've been very busy this week in between my shifts at work, working on something a little different for my mum's birthday card this month which happens to fall the day after this post 30th September.

I decided to got with a box card, I've only made one of these previously which was earlier on this year and it was for my hubby's birthday card.

Finally getting my mojo back after it's been MIA for the last month since I've had surgery but hopefully it's back and here to stay.

I've been enjoying seeing all the wonderful work that everyone has been entering into our monthly challenges but also the amazing work that the Design Team are doing for their Inspirational Posts.


So I've used the following papers from Bearly Mine Designs


Summer Floral Delights NEW FOR 2014

Plain & Simple a must have in your stock

So I hope that you are all grateful this month to see something a little different from me and I hope to keep doing things a little different each month but I can't promise it will be every month.

Please stop by and visit my blog for more information on products used and to see more photo's of my creation.

Happy Crafting
