Challenge #20 Anything but Cards

Welcome to our 20th Challenge here at Aurora Wings.  We thought it might be fun to really get your creative juices flowing this time with the theme of ...

We want to see tags, bags, boxes and MORE!  This is a fabulous time to begin your holiday festivities and think projects for home decoration, gift giving and wrap.  We can't wait to see what you create.

PLEASE REMEMBER OUR RULES.  It breaks my heart when I have to delete a gorgeous creation for lack of compliance, but because we have a random winner, that's the only fair thing to do.  Those using an AURORA WINGS IMAGE may enter up to THREE times, but those using a stamp from another company may only enter ONCE.  ALL creations must have a hand colored digital or rubber stamp to be eligible.

Our prizes each month will include:

1 (one) Artist's Choice Award Winner to be selected from entries using Aurora Wings digis ($20 GC and Badge)

1 (one) Random Winner ($20 GC)

Top 3 Winners to be chosen by the DT ($10 GC and Badge)

Now how about some fabulous inspiration from the DT?

We are thrilled to have Cristena Concialloni-Bagne from Copictopia joining us this challenge as Guest Designer.

The challenge will be open at 9:00 am EST Monday November 16th and close at 11:55 pm Saturday December 19th 2015. Entries posted prior to November 19th will be deleted. All entries must have a hand colored digital or rubber stamp on their completed project to be eligible. Please follow the chosen theme. ONE entry per person if not using an Aurora Wings image.  You may enter your project in as many other challenges as desired. Please link to your POST address, NOT your BLOG address and link back to the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog. We would greatly appreciate you removing word verification and switching to comment moderation if you fear spam. In fairness to all, those not following the rules will be deleted. Thank you for your understanding and please have fun. We look forward to your fabulous creations.

Also, because of the difficulties we have experienced with Facebook entries, I regret that we will no longer be accepting them on the Challenge Blog.  I'm so sorry, but we do have our Holiday Sprites Coloring Contest (with 3 separate divisions!) currently running on our Facebook Group page, so you are welcome to post your appropriate entries there through November 30th.  Thank you for your understanding. 

However, if you do not have a blog and would still like to enter this challenge,  please email me at donnamundinger(at)gmail(dot)com with your name, a picture of your entry and Aurora Wings Challenge #20  in the subject line, and I will add it to the Linky so you can participate. Hopefully this will accommodate everyone.  xx
