Challenge 204--Snowflakes

Welcome to our new challenge blog!  We are so excited to have a place to call our own.  It is so hard to do things effectively in the yahoo group setting so we decided to spread our wings and bring our challenges into the blog world.  First let me give you a bit of background on our challenges.  The challenges change weekly on Mondays and you have a full week to play along.  The design team for the Latenightstamper's Yahoo Group sponsor the challenges and do a great job inspiring our members.  If you are not a member you are certainly welcome to join our group--click here--we are a bunch of stampers who love to use Stampin Up only products.  If you don't want to join and just want to play along--that is ok too!  We just ask that your samples remain at least 90% Stampin Up products.  They do not have to be current products you can use your older stuff too!  So to sum up our rules for you...

  • Anyone can play along!
  • All samples must be at least 90% Stampin Up products.
  • You have a full week to play along and add your sample to the linky tool.
  • You MUST link to only the post that has the challenge item--NOT YOUR HOME PAGE OF YOUR BLOG!!!  Your samples will be deleted if they do not link directly to the project!
  • Have fun and be sure to check out the other players too!
So our first challenge on this blog is Challenge 204--Snowflakes!  They are everywhere around here right now.  Not my favorite thing when they are in the real world--too cold--but I do love them on craft projects!  So that is our challenge to you--create a project with at least one snowflake on it!

Oh and did I tell you this is a prize week!!!!!!!  One randomly chosen winner will win $25 worth of Stampin Up! product of their choice delivered right to their door!  Tell you friends to come and play too if we have more than 40 players I will do a second place winner for $15 worth of Stampin Up! supplies of their choice!

Below you can see the design team samples to inspire you....


Your turn!

New Place to Share Our Challenge Samples!

We are so excited to let you know that we have decided to make a few changes--again--to the weekly challenges!  This blog will be the new home for our weekly Design Team Sponsored Challenges.  The design team will still share our samples on the groups as a constant reminder of the challenge.  But you will be able to see all the samples from both the Design Team and the group members in one place!  We can't wait to begin--we know this is going to be so much easier on everyone involved.  We sure hope you are as excited as we are.  Our first challenge on the blog will have a great prize for our winner! Of course the winning entry will still be shared on the group and posted on the home page of the group--along with the creator's blog link!  So get ready to play along!!  Watch for the announcement that will tell you the first challenge and the prize!
