Challenge #22 Ice & Snow

Welcome to our 22nd challenge here at Aurora Wings and the first of 2016.  By now you may have heard that starting in March 7th we will be having 2 separate challenges each month, and a brand new team for those challenges, beginning on the first Monday of each month.  Please click HERE for our OPEN CALL for the new team.  Of course we will continue our challenges on the third Monday of each month as well, and this time our theme is 

We want to feel the BRRRRR...!!!!!

PLEASE REMEMBER OUR RULES.  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)

It is with a sad heart we say goodbye to our dear teammate, Karina, who is stepping down to pursue other artistic endeavors.  We thank her for her fabulous inspiration and friendship and wish her all the best.   xxx

So, on a happier note, are we ready for some fabulous inspiration?  YOU BETCHA!

And we're thrilled to introduce our very first Guest Designer of 2016, Aurora Aurelia (also known as RoRa) from Eos' crafty room.

The challenge will be open at 9:00 am EST Monday January 18th and close at 11:55 pm Saturday February 13th 2016. Entries posted prior to January 18th 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.  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 Color currently running on our Facebook Group page, so you are welcome to post your appropriate entries there through January 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 #22 in the subject line, and I will add it to the Linky so you can participate. Hopefully this will accommodate everyone.  xx
