Anything Goes at Sweet Stampin

Well Good Morning my sweets, as I write this it's forecast to be a pretty decent weekend & I'm on my way to set up for a craft fair.  I've been working madly & still lots more to do tonight which will be last night by the time you're reading so I hope I got to bed at a reasonable hour!!

So now I've confused you, I'm going to make your challenge life VERY simple this week.......Yep, it's ANYTHING GOES!  We know you love these from the amount of entries we get so we're looking forward to seeing what delights you have for us this week.  Our fabulous sponsor is The Stamping Boutique who gave us some fantastic images to play with (deets & links by the DT names):


Here's some inspiration from our super sweet team:

Trick or Treat at Sweet Stampin'...

Good morning stampin' fans and another fun filled challenge here at Stampin' Towers. The challenge this week is "Halloween" but before I get to this weeks challenge, I thought I would give a little Halloween treat...this was my sons poem every Halloween when he was little so I thought I would share it with you...

One dark day in the middle of the night
Two dead men got up to fight
Back to back they faced each other
And drew their swords and shot each other
The deaf Policeman heard the noise
And came to arrest the two dead boys
And if you don't believe this lie is true
Then ask the blind man he saw it too

Back to this weeks can make what ever you like as long as it fits the them and remember it needs to include something that has been stamped.

Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Bugaboo....

....who are giving 7 digis to one lucky winner picked at random.

In addition for this weeks challenge we are joined not only by our Guest Desinger for the month of October Marilyn but also two of the Bugaboo Design Team...Scrappy and Sandye.

So here's the Halloween inspiration for you.....

Scrappy (using chubby ghost - star)

We're in stitches at Sweet Stampin'....

Good morning Sweet Stampers and welcome to another challenge here at Stamping Towers!! Well the weather here in bonny Scotland it just a bit rubbish...I know a few of the sweeties here have actually had to turn the heating on and I do believe there has been snow in the very north of the country but I hope it stays away for a bit longer!

Ok..on to this weeks challenge. The theme this week is "in stitches"...that's right you need to make a card or project with stitching on it, now that can be real stitching, wonky stitching, faux or fake stitching or even cross long as we can see stitches of some sort then that's fine.

Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Bunny Zoe Crafts.
