Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration and Challenge Blog - First Monthly Challenge - October 2014

Today is a super exciting day for Ching-Chou Kuik and the Design Team members as it is our first monthly challenge.

The "rules" which are very basic and can be found in the blog sidebar or in a page at the top of the blog but for ease of reference they are:

(1) You need to link to your card and NOT YOUR BLOG.

(2) You may combine our challenge with any other challenges but you MUST make a link back to this Challenge Blog. If there is no link your entry will be removed from the list.

(3) NO backlinking is allowed (eg entering a card/creation into the challenge which has been previously shown on your blog).

(4) The challenge will start on the 1st day of the month at 12.05AM GMT and will end two days before the end of the month at 12.05AM GMT. This will facilitate a winner being picked before the next challenge starts.

(5) There will be a limit of THREE entries per person. Any additional entries will be removed.

(6) Any digital stamp/rubber stamp image is allowed but if you use an image available from Ching-Chou Kuik's Etsy Store you will gain another entry into the challenge - now who wouldn't want more chance to win? If you use a Ching-Chou Kuik digital stamp from her Etsy Store you will need to link to your main blog only for this.

(7) Please TURN OFF Word Verification on your blogs. It makes it so difficult for Design Team members to comment.

(8) The lucky winner picked by will win 2 digital images from the Etsy Store of their choice

(9) Most of all - have fun!!!

We decided to start you off gently and the theme is "anything goes".

Here are some cards/creations from the Design Team to inspire you:

Using the Ching-Chou Kuik's Etsy Store called "Big Pumpkin"

Using the Ching-Chou Kuik's Etsy-store called Lavender Adventure Night

Using the Ching-Chou Kuik Etsy Store image called Chihuahua Lover.
Using Fairy Wren

  It would be lovely if you could play along with the challenge this month.

Ching-Chou Kuik's digital stamps can be found in her Etsy Store at:

There is also a facebook Group where all new members are very welcome.  The Facebook Group can be found at:

Please make sure you pop on back to the Challenge Blog on 1 November 2014 to see who the lucky winner of our first challenge is and the topic to be used for November 2014.

Congratulations on the new challenge blog. Lovely cards by the design team. I have entered my card using one of your stamps from Etsy. I love your images and have a lot I previously bought from Sweet Pea Stamps.
