Challenge #35 Fantasy

Welcome to our 35th Challenge here at Aurora Wings hosted again by the Stella Team. Our new theme is Fantasy, a pretty easy one considering all of the gorgeous Fairies, Sprites, and magical creatures Mitzi creates.  Come join us in the magical world of Aurora Wings.

PLEASE REMEMBER OUR RULES.  It breaks my heart when I have to delete a gorgeous creation for lack of compliance, but because we have random winners, 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 THIS 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're also very excited to introduce the two newest members of the Stella Team,

Ann-Marie Johansson

I'm a women in it's prime that still believes that she's no older than 29... I've been married to my hubby for 17 years now and we have 4 beautiful boys. 2 born in summer -99 and the other 2 were born at Christmas -00. Yes they are 2 sets of twins so I had my hands full when they were small. We live on the countryside in the south of Sweden.
I've been crafting almost my whole life (knitting, crochet) but started with scrapbooking some years ago. My passion is colouring.
My blogname, Annemi, comes from an aunt of mine who called me that since I was born so the name is a celebration to her. When I'm not working I still do some knitting and crochet. I also love reading and riding my motorbike.

and Myndi Fraser

I live in Alberta Canada with my husband, 4 of my 5 kids, and one Ragdoll cat.  I have lived all over the world, from Guam to Germany, and lots of places in between.  I taught myself how to crochet about 12 years ago, and after that was addicted to anything crafty.  I started making simple little cards for my family, and it has grown into something that I just LOVE to do.  Aurora Wrings was one of the first digital stamp companies that I found when I started colouring a few years ago, and I fell in love with the beautiful images that Mitzi created.  I'm still in love and so privileged to be on the Stella team.   I have met so many amazing people through Facebook and my blog because of my crafting, and made some genuine friends along the way.  When I'm not crafting I'm either reading a book or spending time with my family.  We have a lake cottage we like to get away to, especially during the summers, but I always bring my Copics with me just in case it rains.

Please be sure to visit their Blogs and give them a warm welcome.
(and of course, don't forget the returning members of the Stella team)

The challenge will be open at 9:00 am EDT Monday September 5th and close at 11:55 pm Saturday September 17th 2016.  Entries posted prior to September 5th 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.  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 #35 in the subject line, and I will add it to the Linky so you can participate. Hopefully this will accommodate everyone.  xx
