Challenge #11 Valentine's

Welcome to our first challenge of 2015!  We hope you had a wonderful holiday season and are excited about the new beginnings a new year promises.  It's hard to image that we're more than halfway through January with thoughts towards the coming month and a day that is filled with emotion, both positive and negative.  Yes, our new challenge is Valentines.  So whether you're 
pro or anti, we want to see your your love creations.

Those using an Aurora Wings image  on all entries may enter up to THREE times, but those of you choosing a stamps from another company must limit your entry to ONE.  And please remember, we DO need to see 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)

We are thrilled to have  a Guest Designer joining us this week.  Please welcome Jan Thompson, joining us from the Aurora Wings Showcase Design Team.

and now some fabulous inspiration from the rest of the team.

The challenge will be open at 9:00 am EST January 19th and close at 11:55 pm Saturday February 14th 2015. Entries posted prior to January 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, THREE entry limit if ALL entries include an Aurora Wings stamp. 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 "Gemstones" contest currently running on our Facebook Group page, so you are welcome to post your appropriate entries there through January 31st.  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 #11  in the subject line, and I will add it to the Linky so you can participate. Hopefully this will accommodate everyone.  xx
