Dynamic Duos #22 - Mix & Match Week!

Wow! October is almost here and while we are excited that Christmas will soon be upon us, Anne Marie and I are also sad as we only have one month left with our amazing Design Team here at Dynamic Duos! The 6 month term has flown by! These ladies have all been supportive, dedicated and inspiring. 

Thank you to Allisa, Bronwyn, Sue, Kim, Paige, Melissa, Anika and Lisa for all the commenting they have done and for all the beautiful cards they have made! You ladies have left big shoes to fill! The design team call will be posted tomorrow. 

This week is our last week with our talented Guest Designers Michelle, Allyson and Karen...thank you so much ladies for joining us this past month!

As this is the last week of the month, we choose one colour and you add the other colour to ours to create your own "Dynamic Duo". This week's colour is Cherry Cobbler...what colour will you add to make your own Dynamic Duo?

The "Dynamo" design team has created some wonderful projects to inspire you!

Anny S. of Anny's Card Addiction...

Anny’s dazzling diamond flower centers totally won me over.  They make for a stunning focal point on her card.   Love her background with the subtle shading on the script background.  The layered butterfly is the perfect accent.  Congrats Anny for being the Diva this week!

Monika Franziska
I loved Monika's fabulous Halloween card. I like this new stamp image and how Monika teamed it with that gorgeous Chevron DSP, the Spider Die, and the Web and Dripping Paint Border Punches. We didn't only get to see the fantastic front of her card but how she finished it off inside making it just perfect. Congratulations!
