I'm hosting a challenge of my own right here in my blog. In order to beat the winter blahs, I would love to see what you create while we hibernate indoors!! Since I live in the Great White North, I spent time mostly indoors and there's nothing pleases me more to see your fantastic creations.
The rule is simple: create a card/page/project to cheer some one special up in the winter. However, the creation has to have a WOW factor, meaning that it will have a special feature. It can be a special/new technique, color combo, unique embellishment or an original design...anything your heart desires! Whatever you consider is a WOW factor all qualifies. This challenge is open to anyone. You can enter as many as you like and combine this challenge with others. So please tell your friend/relatives about it or just blog it.
1st place- Hero Arts 4x6 stamp set ("Treasure The moment" see here) and some stamping goodies as a small token of the win.
2nd place-Hero Arts cling stamp (CG 135 Scroll Label see here)
Honorable Mentions-one small stamp set (2x3)
The judges: myself (Virginia), my DH (aka Dr. John), my DD (Stephanie, university student ) and my DS (David, high school student).
The deadline: Feb. 5, Friday 2010 at midnight (Eastern Time). The winner will be announced on Feb.7!! There's LOTS of time to put that thinking cap on...
Here's my take on the challenge:
