Challenge #23 Sprite Delight III

Welcome to our 23rd Challenge here at Aurora Wings with the popular and well loved theme of Sprite Delight III.  We want to see one of Mitzi's adorable whimsical creatures gracing your project this time, and there are so many to choose from.  Don't have an Aurora Wings Sprite?  Please Scroll down for a fabulous surprise.

We're very excited to have added a new "Stella" team to the Aurora Wings family with their challenges beginning the first Monday of every month, while the "Aurora" team will continue our challenges on the third Monday of each month.  What does this mean for you?  There will be TWICE as many Blog challenges with separate themes and TWICE as many opportunities to win.    Each challenge will now end at 11:55 PM EST on the Saturday before the next challenge starts so Challenge #23 will close on Saturday March 5th.

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.  For this challenge you MUST use an  AURORA WINGS SPRITE and may enter up to THREE times.

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)

Now here's some amazing inspiration from the team.

Joining us today as Guest Designer is Aletha J. Williams from AJ's Designs and the Aurora Wings Showcase Team.  We're so happy to have her.

We're also thrilled to announce that Silvia Sencaka, from the Aurora Wings Showcase Team will be joining the Aurora Challenge Team as a permanent member, as well.  A warm welcome to you, Silvia!

As a special gift, Mitzi has a brand new Sprite for you to use in the challenge if you wish.  Meet Pineapple Sprite.  Isn't she just yummy?  (Pina Coladas anyone?)

So for this challenge, we are accepting ONLY AURORA WINGS SPRITES and not those of any other stamp companies.  You may use any of the Aurora Wings Sprites and may enter up to 3 times.

Pineapple Sprite Digi is no longer available here.

Here's a little more inspiration to get you going.

The challenge will be open at 9:00 am EST Monday February 15th and close at 11:55 pm Saturday March 5th 2016. Entries posted prior to February 15th 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 Enchanted Garden currently running on our Facebook Group page, so you are welcome to post your appropriate entries there through February 29th.  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 #23 in the subject line, and I will add it to the Linky so you can participate. Hopefully this will accommodate everyone.  xx
