Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Inspiration and Challenge Blog - September 2016 - Sympathy, thinking of you or thank you

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 8:
and that card has been created by Beverley.  Congratulations Beverley.  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.

Ching-Chou Kuik certainly had a lot of beautiful cards/creations to choose from but the winner of the "Artist's Choice Award" for August 2016 is No 12:
and that card is by NanaConnie.

Congratulations NanaConnie.  Please pop on over to the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp Etsy Store and e-mail me with your choice of 5 images.  Make sure you take your Monthly Challenge Winner badge from the sidebar to add to your blog.
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 October 2016 is No12:
and that card was created by NanaConnie.  Congratulations NanaConnie.  

I will be in touch with you shortly to give you details of the very special 2nd Anniversary of this Blog October 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 September 2016 the challenge is "a sympathy, thinking of you or thank you".

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 "Golden Fall".

This image is called "Dream of Dahlia".
This is a set of two Halloween images called "Pick a Pumpkin" and "Not Just a Pumpkin".
Here is another set of Halloween images called "Halloween Dusk" and "Halloween Trio".

There is an amazing array of beautiful digital stamps in the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Etsy Store.

Why don't you pop on over and take a look?
There is also a Facebook Group where all new members are very welcome. The Facebook Group can be found HERE.  Here crafters will share their creations made with a Ching-Chou Kuik image.  On the Facebook Group there will also be the details of the monthly Facebook Challenge and details of any sales etc.
Ching-Chou Kuik is now a proud sponsor over at the Passionate Paper Creations and Friends Facebook Group.
Just to give you a "heads up".

Next month is a very special time for the Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration and Challenge Blog.

It will be our 2nd Anniversary.

All the Design Team members have all been privileged to work with such amazing images to show throughout the world.

Make sure you visit next month to find out what the celebrations are.
