Christmas Couple

Good evening to all my lovely friends and  followers This evening is the launch of a new Monthly Challenge over at All Dressed Up Stamps . Our theme as always is Anything Goes as long as you use an All Dressed Up Stamp in your design. If you have just discovered these stamps and don't have any there are some fab Freebies HERE to get you started.

The prize for the winner is three digital stamps of their choice and we also pick a top three one of whom is asked to be a Guest Designer the following month.

For my October Design Team card I used a lovely stamp called Christmas Couple There are also more fabulous creations from the rest of the Design Team to inspire you all over on the challenge blog.
