Rubber Dance Stamp Challenge - October


Hello, gorgeous! Are you ready for another fun challenge? I guess you are!

Our colour scheme and theme this month might not come as a big surprise. After all, fall/autumn is all around us (here in the north, anyway), and we do love its glorious colours! We hope you do, too, when you create an entry (or three) for our October Challenge:


Did you know that "fall" is an Old English word? It replaced the word 'harvest' in the early 1600s as more people started moving into cities. City dwellers began to use the phrase 'fall of the leaf'' and, over time, the phrase was shortened to fall. Surprisingly, etymologists don’t know where the word "autumn" comes from. It was used as far back at the 1300s (by Chaucer), and Shakespeare often used the word, too. As English spread to the New World, the common season names split as well and today, American English uses the word fall while British English uses autumn almost exclusively. 


*         Challenge Rules:          *

Stamping must be obvious on your project.  You do not have to use Rubber Dance stamps to participate.

ALL THREE challenge colours must be used, but you may add others

Max 3 entries per person. 

Entry via the linking tool with a direct link to your post (not just your blog). No backlinking to projects posted prior to the start of our challenge.

You may combine with other challenges, as many as you like.

We reserve the right to remove entries that don't meet these simple requirements.

***************************



The prize:
winner will win five fab stamps from Rubber Dance!
The owner will pick some nice ones out for you.


The winner:
is our DT Pick of the Month, 
selected among those who have used stamps from Rubber Dance
and mentioned so in the text of their post.
You do not have to use our stamps to enter, though. Play along anyway!

We also offer a Guest Designer spot to our DT Pick of the Month,
who will (if she wants) get her challenge card featured amongst the inspirational makes here on the Rubber Dance blog when we announce an upcoming challenge.

Honourable Mentions:
