Elisabeth Bell Winter Window Spotlight Hop & 1st Monthly Challenge

Welcome to the Quixotic Paperie Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Winter Window Spotlight Blog hop
and our first monthly challenge.

If you have landed here from Kim Dellow's blog Crafty Makes then you are hoping in the right direction. If not then hop over to Elaine's blog Quixotic Cards to begin.

We have an extra special blog hop and Challenge for you today. The Quixotic Paperie DT plus our very special guest the talented Kim Gruetzmacher (from Crafts By Kim and member of the Susana's Custom Art and Card Design Design Team) have all been playing with the lovely new Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Winter Window Stamp to give you lots of ideas for your Winter makes.

But the reason why this is an extra event is that it is an introduction to our new once a month Quixotic Paperie Challenge which this month is:

Christmas Is Coming

Make a Christmas card and/or gift and link it up here to be in with a chance to win a fabulous prize donated from Quixotic Paperie by Elaine and picked randomly. There will also be the opportunity to work with us as a guest designer as each month the DT will pick their favourites from the entries and one will win a guest DT spot for a month.

So rules? There are no rules! Yep that is right! To go with our new challenge format of once a month we have no rules other than link your make back to us on your blog post of course! So you can use any stamps, papers, not just ones stocked at Quixotic Paperie just as long as the make falls within our theme for the month.

The challenge will run from today 13th October until Tuesday 9th November (12 noon UK time) and you can enter the challenge as many times as you like in this time period.

So here are the DT and Kim Gruetzmacher's makes for inspiration and we have all used the Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Winter Window

For UK/ EU customers this beautiful stamp is available at Quixotic Paperie. If you're in the US/Canada you can buy it direct from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design.

So we hope you enjoyed the hop and looking at all the inspiration for this gorgeous stamp. Don't forget to show us your Christmas Is Coming makes by linking up below.
