Challenge #130 - Anything Goes + optional twist of "Christmas is Coming"

The theme for November 2016's challenge is

with an optional twist of "Christmas is coming"

Hosted by Jackie

It is my great pleasure to host the challenge at DigistampsForJoy this month. Help me celebrate 4 happy years on this great DT! As always our theme is ATG with a twist! Some folk enjoy a bit of a challenge! My chosen twist is Christmas is coming!! There are so many superb Christmas images in the DS4J store, but I eventually decided on this one ... Pointsettia candles -  so classy and elegant don't you think? Please play along, we love to see your projects.

The theme for November is always ANYTHING GOES, but with the added optional twist of 'Christmas is coming.

  The challenge runs UNTIL 30 November 2016

The DTs Choice prize of the $10 Gift Voucher is applicable to all entries. Remember to link your projects in the linky below. 
Don't forget you MUST use a digital stamp or rubber stamp - no clipart please!

ANY of the digis in the Store are perfect for this twist! Did you know that you can find any one easily by typing in a NAME into the SEARCH box?

I am proud to announce we have a Guest Designer with us .... Katrina Brown.
