OK, over to the challenge - let's see what the team have created for you today! More great projects from the team this month!

Mayte CastaƱeda - hello everyone I'm so excited to be part of the Polkadoodles team! I made a cute Halloween Tag for this first post - I love this Witch digi so much! She is from the Spellbinding Witches collection and is called Cordelia - I look forward to following your blogs and hope you will also follow my social too!...

Merja - This time I made a glittery flower tag. I used the Blossoming Rose stencil and glitter paint pens to create this beautiful flowery background (sorry, the glitter doesn't show very well, it's a pain to photograph). I think the pattern itself is so beautiful that I only added a congratulations text stamped on vellum (using the Sentimentals stamp set) and a black satin ribbon.

Maz - for my Autumn/Fall Colours project, I created this tag using the Sunflower Cart from the NEW Autumn Fall Halloween Treat Bundle I added extra pumpkins from the Ghastly Ghost Halloween Bundle. I decorated with a few leafy dies from Super Sprigs Die and branches from Iced Branches Die All details can be found on my blog

Irre - Sharing today a new project made for Polkadoodles. As a focal point, I used the digital stamp called Serenity Fairy kisses. I colored her with Copics and then cut her out. The background is made of watercolor paper. I colored it in with Distress ink, water splats, and stamps from Best day ever. I decorated with sewing threads, purple flowers, die-cut out leaves from the Super sprigs cutting die. I added a sentiment and added some white splats with white acrylic paint.

Rachael - Hello crafting friends!. Rachael here again with some more inspiration. You don't just have to make cards with your crafty stash. how about using some stamps and some card to make bag toppers for cute trick-or-treat bags. these could be for a party, or just to hand out. I used a stamp set called Fab-boo-lous but you could use any image for any occasion.

Tinne Peeters - Hi everyone! For my first challenge as a DT member I chose a ghost as a Halloween icon. The Boo Ghost Halloween Gnome precoloured digital stamp is perfect for it! I created a full moon background using stencils and Distress Oxide inks. I cut out a black grass border using a die, and inked the top of the grass blades with blue ink. The sentiment I used is from the Halloween Trick or Treat Printable Greetings set. A video of how I made this card will be available on my Instagram page, I'd love it if you'd follow me and say hello!...

Natalia - Halloween has been on our blog lately, so today, I have another card with pumpkins for this occasion. I used a giant pumpkin from the new collection - Ghastly Ghost Halloween. I used Boneshakin Halloween paper as a background, and additional images such as leaves, bats, and small pumpkins are from the Autumn Fall Halloween Treat collection. Everything was colored with alcohol markers.
