Welcome to our LAST week with the talented Torico! It's your last chance to CASE her gorgeous work guilt-free, so let's get cracking! We hope you'll join us.
Here's this week's inspiration card from her:


On another note, our next month-long Guest Designer was contacted, and will be joining us in October! If it wasn't you, please DO keep trying! Unfortunately we can't choose everyone at once, but there's plenty of talent amongst our players and we're sure to give many a chance with time! We hope that you won't give up and keep submitting.

That being said, many thanks to our September Guesties, Anja and Vickie! Didn't they do a wonderful job?? Thanks for hanging around with us, gals :)

(*Belated*) winners announced!

My biggest apologies, guys! It literally never happens to me, but it seems that I forgot to do my duty! I'm in the midst of school holidays, and we 'worked' hard with hubs yesterday, to entertain out 3 yo rascal. By the time we came back home, I was too tired to acknowledge that there's stuff to do. I'm glad I remembered, before the next challenge was due! :P

Our winner for CSC109 is Lynda from Dreams & Other Realities!!




"Pair"fection it truly is!! Funky colours and patterns, bold lettering and the sweetest little pears, make up for a rocking piece of art! Congrats, Lynda, and thanks for sharing with us!

Our Top 3 winners are:


Kelly @ Creating Chaos
Sue @ Sentimentally Sue
Maureen @ Mama Mo Stamps

Congratulations!
Winners, feel free to grab your badges (right click & save onto your computer), and wear them proudly :)

On another note, we are nearly at the end of the month, which means the last challenge with Torico commences shortly! If you still haven't had a chance to play along, here's your last call :) Hope to see you here again!

It never gets old, the joy of introducing the brand new Designer and then discovering what wonders you create with their artwork.
That being said, let's roll in with this week's piece!
