Can you BELIEVE it is March already! WOW! And do you know the BEST thing about March? Nope...it's not St. Patty's day. Nope...it's not that spring will soon be here. Give up? It's that there are FIVE THURSDAYS in March...so FIVE Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenges! Now admit it...that is just THE BEST!!!
Now before we get to the challenge, we have some VERY IMPORTANT CHANGES TO ANNOUNCE...
Create with Connie and Mary is a Stampin' Up! only service that promotes the use of Stampin' Up! images and materials. Over the past several months some submissions used non-SU products and linked them to non-SU (competing) stores. This is, in spirit, a violation of the SU agreement that we signed. So...in keeping with this, starting this month, and going forward...
Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge
Stampin' Up! Only!
What does this mean...to participate in the challenge you need to use
- Stampin' Up! images only
- Stampin' Up! dsp only
We REALLY look forward to seeing what you create with the challenges and we hope to encourage more SU lovin' folks to play along. If you submit a project using non-SU images and dsp, it WILL be removed.
And now for the AND MORE....
To get everyone in that SU Only mood...each time you enter into a March challenge, your name will be entered into a drawing for a FREE SUBSCRIPTION to Create with Connie and Mary Summer Edition (launching in May!). One lucky SU Only kind of stamper will be the lucky winner of a subscription. So...the more you enter in March, the better your chances!
Now we are going to start out the month with a fun and simple sketch for you! I (Mary) LOVE circles and like to add them to our sketches whenever I can (just don't ask the rest of the team about my circle issue! LOL!!!).
So...here's the details, you have until Wednesday, March 9th at 12 noon EST. It is important when linking that you link to your PROJECT and not to YOUR BLOG! We really appreciate when you do that. Also, we really appreciate you labeling your project CCMC140 and link back to the Create with Connie and Mary blog.
To get you going on the challenge...here's what our design team came up with...
Connie Babbert - Inkspired Treasures
Mary Brown - StamperCamper's Corner
Carrie Gaskin - Artistic Advenger
Deb Currier - ARTfelt Impressions
Debbie Henderson - Debbie's Designs
Erica Cerwin - Pink Buckaroo Designs
So...now it is YOUR turn! Let's see what you do with our sketch. So, get off the computer, head to your crafting area grabbing all your SU only stuff and get going. Then post to your blog or an online gallery labeling it CCMC140 and linking back to here. Now come back and link to your creation! (Remember to link to the direct post and not your general blog.) We reserve the right to remove submissions that do not use Stampin' Up! stamps and images or represent the challenge. Happy Stampin'!
