Challenge #17 Anything with Wings

Welcome to Challenge #17 here at Aurora Wings.  Our challenge this time will run for 2 months as we are taking a break during the month of August to allow for vacations and Back to School preparations. You have until Sept 20th to enter.  We hope this gives you time to join in with our theme of "Anything with Wings".  The wings may be in the image, on the DP, or as an embellishment, giving you lots of room for creativity.

OUR RULES ARE THE SAME.  It breaks my heart when I have to delete a gorgeous creation for lack of compliance, but because we have a random winner, that's the only fair thing to do.  Those using an AURORA WINGS IMAGE may enter up to THREE times, but those using a stamp from another company may only enter ONCE.  ALL creations must have a hand colored digital or rubber stamp to be eligible.

Our prizes each month will include:

1 (one) Artist's Choice Award Winner to be selected from entries using Aurora Wings digis ($20 GC and Badge)

1 (one) Random Winner ($20 GC)

Top 3 Winners to be chosen by the DT ($10 GC and Badge)

We are so happy to have Julie Reed from the Aurora Wings Showcase Design Team join us this week.

The challenge will be open at 9:00 am EDT Monday July 20th and close at 11:55 pm Saturday Sept  21st 2015. Entries posted prior to July 20th will be deleted. All entries must have a hand colored digital or rubber stamp on their completed project to be eligible. Please follow the chosen theme. ONE entry per person if not using an Aurora Wings image, THREE entry limit if ALL entries include an Aurora Wings stamp. You may enter your project in as many other challenges as desired. Please link to your POST address, NOT your BLOG address and link back to the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog. We would greatly appreciate you removing word verification and switching to comment moderation if you fear spam. In fairness to all, those not following the rules will be deleted. Thank you for your understanding and please have fun. We look forward to your fabulous creations.

Also, because of the difficulties we have experienced with Facebook entries, I regret that we will no longer be accepting them on the Challenge Blog.  I'm so sorry, but we do have our "My Favorite Season" FB Contest currently running on our Facebook Group page, so you are welcome to post your appropriate entries there through July 31st.  Thank you for your understanding. 

However, if you do not have a blog and would still like to enter this challenge,  please email me at donnamundinger(at)gmail(dot)com with your name, a picture of your entry and Aurora Wings Challenge #17  in the subject line, and I will add it to the Linky so you can participate. Hopefully this will accommodate everyone.  xx

Thanks for the challenges and for the fabulous inspiration by the DT. I am having a blog celebration and would love to have all of you join as a follower (if not already), comment and link your blog with Mr. Linky. I will add your name if you don't have a blog; just leave me a comment stating no blog. Have a fantastic day! Hugs, Gloria

Ladies---a word of caution! If you color a new-to-you image today and then go back to your blog and group it with other projects you've done by Mitzi DO NOT ADD your new image to the earlier post. It will be yanked from this challenge because the post will appear to predate the challenge. Post everything you do day by day and don't group images on your blog. There is no way for the challenge moderators to know that your work really DID qualify. Lesson learned. I thought that linking back to a blog post that showcased several images would help to promote sales---but it does not---it violates the rules of the challenge and there is no way to recontact the moderators.
