October Linky Winner and Smiling Stars

Hello everyone,

thanks for visiting our blog today :)
November 8th already - oh my - where did time go?
You all know we have a link-up tool on our sidebar and picked some featured artists of the month - and this is so much fun - because (even If I don't comment on all the entries due to a lack of time) we LOVE your projects. We had more than 60 entries in October - woohoo - so it seems you love the linky and sharing your art. Yay!
Today we're featuring some of you who played along and also draw one random winner who gets a surprise pack of goodies :)

So, here the are... our Smiling stars - feel free to take this badge to your blog, stars :)

(note: They come in no particular order)
This time we go all blue :)

1) Wiebke

Wiebkes card is just breath-takingly colores. Tone-on-tone cards can be boring, but all this eyecacthing brightness jumped right into my eye. I love that she used some of our decoration-stamps to Wrap her gifts in beautiful designs!

Marlene's card is eytremely elegant (something that's challenging for me when I'm creating, ha!). She used subtile embossed words in the background, and balances her card perfectly with that large sentiment (it says thank you) and the Leaves from Time to say thanks. This card is unique and I love it!

Vanessa's card is just plain clever and striking. She used tiny star stamps to create both - her background and her image. masking a simple shape and stamping small images into that shape is an amazing way to use your smaller stamps. That inkblending in the background gives the perfect finishing touch!

and last but not least a super cute and colorful card, that totally impressed me:

4) Raluca

Raluca used our freebies and pimped them up with some googley eyes - so  much fun. The most impressive partthat makes me swoon is her coloring - i haven't seen anything like it and it looks like our tiny friends are FURRY! That's simply amazing and I'll give this a try soon!

A big thank you for sharing your art, Ladies! I feel so inspired whenever ii take a look at our gallery. Thank you so much!

Now it's time for a random winner of some goodies.....

{insert drummroll here}

We love to see all our international friends in our galleries. What are you waiting for? Maybe you're the next winner :)

Have a great start into your new week - and don't forget to spread smiles :)
