November Challenge

Good afternoon everyone!  First I would like to congratulate our winner of the October challenge:

Norma!

Your card is gorgeous, so glad you participated.  Please send me an email with your mailing addy so I can get your stamp in the mail.

Now on to the November Challenge!

I can’t be the only one who has started getting a jump on the Christmas cards;  December will be here in no time.  So, this month your challenge is to create a Christmas card (or project) using non-traditional colours (i.e. no red/green combos).  Isn’t that easy?

And of course, here are the rules:

  • you must be a registered user of www.stampshoppe.ca (Canada/USA only);
  • create a new card or project using a Magnolia stamp based on the November challenge;
  • Upload your card to an online gallery or your blog, please ensure you link us up, or at a minimum, mention this blog challenge.  If you do not have a blog or online gallery please email me your submission.  We do prefer that our challenges are not combined with other store challenges; and
  • Come back to this post and leave a comment or fill out Mr. Linky (below) with the DIRECT link to your card/blog post by midnight EST November 30th.

And as an added bonus, your name will be thrown in the hat twice (for each entry) if you add our store banner to your sidebar and link us up.

Curious as to what’s up for grabs?  This ADORABLE snowman stamp (one of Carla’s favourites):  Edwin’s Snowman!

Edited to add:  I’ll apologize now for ending the challenge early, for some reason when I got up this morning I thought it was November 1st…  I’ll blame it on sick kids and lack of sleep.  That being said, I didn’t feel right changing anything after I posted a winner so if anybody else  posts a card to the October challenge they will get an extra ballot for the November challenge.  Thanks for understanding.

Hello everyone!  A new month, a new challenge and a new prize up for grabs.  This month I would love to see some vintage or shabby chic styled cards.  This will even be a challenge for me because I tend to stick with simple and clean lines, but, I have been known to tear some paper in my time so we’ll see what I can come up with!  Again, here are the rules:

  • you must be a registered user of www.stampshoppe.ca (Canada/USA only)
  • create a card using a Magnolia stamp based on the August challenge
  • Upload your card to an online gallery or your blog (please link us up!)
  • Come back to this post and leave a comment or fill out Mr. Linky (below) with the DIRECT link to your card (yes, I am going to try out Mr. Linky again…..) by midnight EST August 31st.
