Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog - October 2016 - Halloween/something spooky and our Very Special 2nd Blog Challenge Anniversary Celebrations

Thank you to all those crafters that entered last months' challenge.
As mentioned anyone that entered that used an image from the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp Etsy Store would get a second entry into the draw. 

The winner of 2 digital images from the Etsy Store is:
No 9 and and that card has been created by Heather.  This is the card that Heather made:
Congratulations Heather.  Please pop on over to the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp Etsy Store and e-mail me with your choice of 2 images.  Make sure you take your Monthly Challenge Winner badge from the sidebar to add to your blog.
The winner of "Artist's Choice Award" will be announced shortly.
*****************************************
Now is time to reveal the name of the Guest Designer.  There was only one person that put down their name for Guest Designer so our Guest Designer for November 2016 will be Wendy.  This is the card that Wendy created:
Congratulations Wendy.  I will be in touch with you shortly to give you details of the November Challenge and for you to let me know what image you would like to use for the challenge as a "thank you" for being the Guest Designer.

For those that were not lucky there is always next month.
*****************************************
Today sees the start of another challenge.

It also a BIG celebration as it is 2 years since our first challenge.  

Thank you for your participation and continued support.

For the month of October 2016  the challenge is "Halloween/something spooky".

To make these celebrations extra special we have been joined by the Facebook Design Team members.

Please remember when linking to this challenge you MUST link to your blog post and not just your actual blog. 

As you have taken the time to create something to enter into the challenge the Design Team members like to leave you comments but this is made more difficult when they have to look through your blog to find the right card/creation to comment on. 

Thank you for your understanding.
