October 2018 - Plant-tastic

Welcome everyone to our October Challenge 
Our theme this month is Plant-tastic (no rules but along the lines of vegetation - which can include trees, flowers even fruit and vegetables too) chosen by the lovely Rachel

Hello there! Plant-tastic is my theme. I was thinking along the lines of vegetation - which can include trees, flowers even fruit and vegetables too. Let your imagination run riot and please join our challenge this month! You can see what I did to make my monolith here.
Good morning and happy Monday. I really enjoyed this challenge - and it definitely was a challenge! Here's my first make.
I've used the wonderful PaperArtsy Scrapcosy stencil here - this really knows how to fill a page. There are a lot more photographs here on my blog. Have a very happy October, and I'll see you very soon with my second piece x
Miriam here, sharing my first project for the Plantastic challenge.  Here is my project:
Pop over to my blog to see how I made this card.  I look forward to seeing what you create for the challenge.
Happy Crafting!
Hello everyone,
for our October challenge, I made a birthday card with the Funky Florals.
If you like it or need a supply list, please visit my blog.
Thank you!
Although there are only 2 more months left of this year there are still lots of flowers in my garden which continue to inspire me. For my first project for our "Plantastic" challenge I have made a floral card with just a hint of the colder days to come.
I used lots of texture and another of the awesome Tim Holtz' 3D impresslits embossing folders. If you would like to see how I grew made my card all the details are over on my blog here
Enjoy this season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, my 2nd DT make coming up on the 19th is most definitely in that vein! 
Bye for now,
Plants are an inexhaustible source of inspiration for the crafter, and one of my favourite motif, flowers for the girls, trees for the boys, grasses, twigs, mushrooms for all... what a treat for us!
Today I went with an Autumn flavour, with the classic colourful leaves. Come by my blog to check out how I created my tag!
