This means that our very first winner is No 4 and that is Margaret. Here is Margaret's card that she entered into the challenge:
Congratulations Margaret. 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.

If you do use a digital stamp from the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Etsy Store please make sure your first entry is the card/creation that you have made and also do a second entry with just a link to your blog so this means you will get your two entries.

Today sees the start of another challenge.

For the month of November the challenge is "add some ribbon".

Here are some creations from the Design Team to give you some inspiration:

Using the Ching-Chou Kuik digital stamp called "Red Panda"

Using the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp called "Sunshine"

taking a little break

Using the Ching-Chou Kuik digital stamp from the Etsy Store called "Crimson Moon"

Just to remind you the "rules" of our monthly challenge 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:

The rules of the Challenge Blog will be simple:

(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 chances 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. For the second entry you need to link direct to your main blog.

(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!!!

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

Something new starting from the November Challenge onwards there will be an Artists Choice Award.
Everyone that uses an image from Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Etsy Store will be entered into an extra draw to win the Artists Choice Award so they get to place this gorgeous badge on their blog and also get to win 3 digital stamps of their choice.  The winner of this prize will be picked by Ching-Chou Kuik herself.

Isn't that a wonderful prize?

Pop on over to the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp Etsy Store to look at all the wonderful images.
You might or might not be aware but they have been some stunning additions to the Etsy Store recently and these include:
 This image is called "Tears in Wind".
