Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog - February 2016 - Love

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 21 and that card has been created by Jane.  This is the card that Jane made for the challenge:
Congratulations Jane.  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.
Every month there is an "Artist's Choice Award".  The winner of this award will be picked by Ching-Chou Kuik herself.  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 pick 5 digital stamps of their choice from the Etsy Store.

Unfortunately as Ching-Chou Kuik doesn't have access to internet much the details of her Artist Choice Award will be published ASAP.

Now is time to reveal the name of the Guest Designer.  

Out of the names that said they would like to be considered in being a Guest Designer, the lucky winner for the Guest Designer for March 2016 is No 30:
This is the coloured image that was done by Sara for the recent Facebook Challenge.  I will be in touch with you shortly to give you details of the January Challenge and for you to let me know what image you would like to use for the challenge as a "thank you" for being the Guest Designer.

For those that were not lucky there is always next month.
Today sees the start of another challenge.

For the month of February 2016 the challenge is "LOVE".

Our first card is by our Guest Designer for February which is Annie:

Ching-Chou Kuik is now a proud sponsor over at the Passionate Paper Creations and Friends Facebook Group.

Don't forget if you would like to be a Guest Designer for a forthcoming challenge please remember to add "GDT" after you name in the InLinkz or add a comment in the comment box.

Please remember when linking to this challenge you MUST link to your blog post and not just your actual blog.  As you have taken the time to create something to enter into the challenge the Design Team members like to leave you comments but this is made more difficult when they have to look through your blog to find the right card/creation to comment on.  

Thank you for your understanding.
