Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog - December 2014 Challenge

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:
no 9 and that means the lucky winner is ..................... Teresa and this is the gorgeous card she created for the challenge:
Congratulations Teresa.

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, from the November Challenge onwards there will be an "Artist's Choice Award".  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 pic 3 digital stamps of their choice from the Etsy Store.

So who is our very first "Artist's Choice Award winner.
Well Ching-Chou Kuik has picked No 4 and that card is by Lozzy.  Congratulations Lozzy.  Please pop on over to the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp Etsy Store and e-mail me with your choice of 3 images.  Make sure you take your Monthly Challenge Winner badge from the sidebar to add to your blog.

**********************************
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 Random.org will win 2 digital images from the Etsy Store of their choice.  There will also be an "Artist's Choice Award" - any card/creation made using a Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp from the Etsy Store will be looked at by Ching-Chou Kuik herself and the winner will have a badge to display proudly on their blog/Facebook and will also win 3 digital stamps 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.
