25 days to Christmas

and who is counting lol.  Thank you to everyone who has joined in with our challenges in 2015 and do really hope you join us in 2016.  Just a reminder that this challenge will run until 31st Jan, yes for 2 whole months.  We need a well deserved break, well not so much a break as preparation for the festive season lol.  

Thank you for all the wonderful work our fabulous DT have produced over the past year.  We also say goodbye to Sue and Donna who are venturing into new things - we wish them well for the future and am sure we will be seeing them around blogland.

Now for the gorgeous DT makes and please leave the links to your projects beneath via linky.

November already.............

Well the year is coming to an end and I for one has no idea where it has gone to.  Did I fall asleep for few months and missed it ???  Anyway I would like to give thanks to those who entered last months challenges, your art is amazing and we are blessed that you choose to share it with us.  Thank you so so much.I would also like to take the opportunity to thank my fantabulous DT ladies.  All so talented and feel honored they want to be here month after month inspiring us all.  That said we are losing a few ladies due to life commitments so it will be likely to be running a DT call at some point.  As a heads up for all out last challenge for the year will run from December 1st right through to Feb 1st.  I like my ladies to have a complete break to rejuvenate and to also deal with family stuff over the festive season.

Now for our November challenge and as always is Anything Goes as long as it is mixed media/altered art - please leave the link to your projects beneath DT projects - thank you can't wait to see them.

September Challenge

and yes here we all are once again - new month new challenge.  As a reminder this challenge blog is always ANYTHING GOES MIXED MEDIA/ALTERED ART.  We do get the odd card slipping under the radar and as beautiful they are they should not be entered into these challenges but by all means check out our sister blog Eclectic Ellapu to see if your cards fit those themes.  I would also like to point out to those entering this challenge that will be able to enter Rhedd's Creative Spirit challenges as they too are Anything goes, mixed media/altered art blog. Just a lil' plug for our fabulous Sandra - the owner.

Now then onto the challenge and the fabulous DT inspirational projects this month - why not head on over to their blogs to see more details on their projects.

August and is it Summer yet?

Well I don't know about the rest of you in the UK but have you had the chance of many barbecues on the beach with the sun going down without your fur coat on lol.  Maybe it will get better lol.  Before we move onto this months challenge we have lost the fabulously talented Steffi and we wish her well for the future .

Anyway it is time for a new challenge of Anything goes over here at Altered Eclectics.  It does have to be mixed media/altered art to enter the challenge.

Now for the fabulously talented DT and their art work.  Why not head on over to their blogs and leave them lots of love and admiration.  They really are a special bunch of ladies.
