Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog - September 2015 Challenge - The Colours of Fall

Thank you to all those crafters that entered last month's 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 14 and that card has been created by Annemis.  This is the card that Annemis has made:
Congratulations Annemis.  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.
As mentioned in the post on 1 November 2014, there is now an "Artist's Choice Award" every month.  To be in with a chance of winning this award you need to use one of Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps from her Etsy Store for your card/creation.  At the end of the month Ching-Chou Kuik will look at all those cards/creations using one of her digital stamps from the Etsy Store and pick one winner that will get the "Artist's Choice Award" and will also get to pic 3 digital stamps of their choice from the Etsy Store.

Ching-Chou Kuik certainly had a lot of beautiful cards/creations to choose from but the winner of the "Artist's Choice Award is No 19:
and that is a floral ATC by Susan.  Congratulations Susan.

Please pop on over to the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp Etsy Store and e-mail me with your choice of 5 images.  Make sure you take your Monthly Challenge Winner badge from the sidebar to add to your blog.

Now is time to reveal the name of the Guest Designer.  Out of the names that said they would like to be considered in being a Guest Designer, the lucky winner for the Guest Designer for October 2015 is:
