Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog - November 2015 Challenge - Christmas

Thank you to all those crafters that entered last months' challenge.
As mentioned anyone that entered that used an image from the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp Etsy Store would get a second entry into the draw. 

The winner of 2 digital images from the Etsy Store is:
and No 26's card has been created by AJ.  This is the card that AJ made:
Congratulations AJ.  Please pop on over to the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp Etsy Store and e-mail me with your choice of 2 images.  Make sure you take your Monthly Challenge Winner badge from the sidebar to add to your blog.
As mentioned in the post on 1 November 2014, there is now an "Artist's Choice Award" every month.  To be in with a chance of winning this award you need to use one of Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps from her Etsy Store for your card/creation.  At the end of the month Ching-Chou Kuik will look at all those cards/creations using one of her digital stamps from the Etsy Store and pick one winner that will get the "Artist's Choice Award" and will also get to pick 5 digital stamps of their choice from the Etsy Store.

Ching-Chou Kuik certainly had a lot of beautiful cards/creations to choose from but the winner of the "Artist's Choice Award is No 43:
and that card is by Andrea.  Congratulations Andrea.  Please pop on over to the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp Etsy Store and e-mail me with your choice of 5 images.  Make sure you take your Monthly Challenge Winner badge from the sidebar to add to your blog.

Now is time to reveal the name of the Guest Designer.

As mentioned previously we are now going to have a Guest Designer join us for the monthly challenge from May 2015 onwards.

Out of the names that said they would like to be considered in being a Guest Designer, the lucky winner for the Guest Designer for December 2015 is Silvia.  Silvia made this shadow box project card for October's challenge:
Congratulations Silvia.  I will be in touch with you shortly to give you details of the December Challenge and for you to let me know what image you would like to use for the challenge as a "thank you" for being the Guest Designer.

For those that were not lucky there is always next month.

Today sees the start of another challenge.

For the month of November 2015 the challenge is "Christmas".

Don't forget if you would like to be a Guest Designer for a forthcoming challenge please remember to add "GDT" after you name in the InLinkz or add a comment in the comment box.

The first card I am showing you is from our Guest Designer for this month, Wanda.  She has made this gorgeous card:

Please remember when linking to this challenge you MUST link to your blog post and not just your actual blog.  

As you have taken the time to create something to enter into the challenge the Design Team members like to leave you comments but this is made more difficult when they have to look through your blog to find the right card/creation to comment on.  

Thank you for your understanding.
