October Challenge – a chance to win $15 coupon!

Here we are in October!  Hard to credit how quickly this year has flown!  It’s Spring here in Australia, with the weather warming and blossoms and green everywhere, it’s hard to imagine that those of you in the northern hemisphere are watching the leaves turn colour and the weather cool down.

Congratulations to dorabmendes for winning the September challenge!  YAY! Please check your PMs over at TLP for details of how to claim your prize!

As you know, Nicole (aka inkandpixels) does an amazing challenge where she is inspired by an advertisement and then magics up and template to match.  For this month, following in her footsteps, I have found an ad and let it inspire me – and I hope it inspires you, too!

Here’s the ad:

Halloweenies: Primitives and Joodle Strips 4

The October BYOC is here and my contributions have a cheerfully spooky folk-art feel to them! When I asked my team what they would like to see me create for Halloween this year, primitive / folk-art inspired characters were high on the list of requests! So I doodled away and came up with a new addition to my range of Halloweenies doodles and a coordinating pack of Joodle Strips: Halloweenies: Primitives and Joodle Strips 4 are new in the store today and are 20% off all weekend! Halloweenies: Primitives stamps and bundle packs are also available.

Quarterly Sale


I have some new goodies to tell you about! Nicole has been busy working her magic with my Joodle Strips to create two new Joodle Journalers packs that are great fun for pocket and traditional scrappers alike! Slip them into your pocket pages or use them as journal spots, photo mats or decorative elements on your digital pages! I have also been busy doodling and have a sunny scorcher of a beach pack new in the stores this week (the result of some wishful thinking as the weather here in the UK has definitely not been tropical this summer!)!
