January 2020 "Show and Share"

Hello friends!
It gives me great pleasure to start the 1st Show & Share in 2020! 

Due to the post schedule, this challenge starts a bit later. However, the deadline is also extended (ending on the 30th). Therefore,  you will not miss any time for submitting your entries!  
With your encouragement and feedback, I decided to continue in 2020.
I hope that you continue to give this challenge support simply by entering your work.
The main goal is to challenge you to create and share with our fellow card-makers.
I am hoping that all participants in this monthly feature can give each other some blog love, offer encouragement and get inspired! Are you gamed!?

This is how it works:
Each month, I will post the link on the 9th day of the month and it will end on the 29th day of the month. ***This month's deadline is at 9PM , EST, January 30th.

On the last day of each month, ONE winner will be announced.
To participant in this monthly feature: 
1. link up your new creation(s) and share it here in the gallery. You can use Instagram, Flickr, Facebook, Pinterest... or blog for your projects. You certainly do not need a blog to enter this challenge. 

2. you are most welcome to use WHATEVER in your stash to create. Old or new products are all welcome. You do not need to purchase new products to play. Use what makes you happy.

3. try out new techniques, styles and products! This is your chance to show off what you make!

4. please link to my blog and mention that you are taking part in Virginia's "Show and Share" and use the blog logo if you can. I hope this will help spread the joy of  "Show and Share" with more card-makers!

5. please share no more than 4 projects within a month. Basically one project a week is good if you want to link as many as you can.

You can now find this monthly feature link at my side banners. Simply click on it and you can find this very post. I chose 9th day of the month as a cycle because I was born on Dec. 9th.

 👉👉👉 this month's prize, you will receive
 Altenew Watercolor Doodles (valued at $15.99). 
I will mail this set to the winner.  Internationals are welcome.
