Challenge #133 - BINGO!!

It just goes to show the world is a circle, and so many lucky people will be receiving cards with circles of one description or another in the future.  

Once again we have the very talented Caitlyn from 
Personally I (Poppet) think Caitlyn's images give you a great deal of scope to hone your colouring.  I love the hair styles and the features of her images are so clear I love to use them to practice with and I feel I've really improved (the colour choices of my card leave something to be desired but I'm working on it).

 Hop over to Caitlyn's Etsy and purchase a couple of images and have a practice I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Prize: 3 images of choice from store

Theme:  BINGO
You may choose a horizontal line diagonal line or go for all 4 corners or if you really like punishment try for a full house

Please let us know what you have chosen. 


Below you will find our wonderful DT projects.  As usual click on the name to visit their blog to find out more info and leave them some love and click on the title to go to DevilCaitDesigns

Challenge 132 - Circles

You'll notice a little difference on our link up from this challenge forward. It has unfortunately become too costly to provide thumbnails of all your wonderful work so you will still link via Inlinkz but your pictures will not be visible to everyone else unless they click on the link to your project. 

The way we choose the winner will also change. The DT will choose a favourite from their comment list and a Winner will be chosen from these. When the Winner is announced we will now show you all the DT's favourite projects too. Hopefully this won't dampen your enjoyment of our challenges and it means we will be able to showcase more of our entries fabulous projects.

For the challenges in November we have the wonderfully talented Caitlyn Crosfield of 
Theme: Circles of any description
(as long as they are obvious)

We were generously given some imaqes by Caitlyn to use for our projects and I'm sure you will agree with me that the DT have excelled themselves with the inspiration they have provided.

As usual click on the name to leave some love with the DT member and click the Title to go the Caitlyn's wonderful Etsy shop.

Hello! My name is Nikki Burnette and I am a fantasy artist. I paint all sorts of fantastical creatures in watercolor. Fantasy art is where my heart lies.

I sell my original paintings as well as a wide range of different products that I create myself in my studio.

The prize is 3 images
