Challenge #40 Christmas

Welcome to our 40th challenge here at Aurora Wings.  Ahh, the magical season is fast approaching so it should be no surprise that our new challenge theme, hosted by the Aurora Team is Christmas!

Mitzi has so many glorious stamps with a Christmas theme that we're excited to see what you choose.

In any case, don't forget 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.  No backlinking to previously created projects.

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 are thrilled to have Lisbeth Bengtsson joining us as Guest Designer for this challenge.

Now let's see what the Aurora team has chosen as inspiration.

We're also thrilled to announce that Teresa Morgan is joining us as a permanent member of the Aurora Team.  Be sure to give her a big welcome!

The challenge will be open at 9:00 am EST Monday November 21st and close at 11:55 pm Saturday December 3rd 2016. Entries posted prior to November 21st 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 #40 in the subject line, and I will add it to our Aurora Wings Submissions Blog, where it can be viewed and commented on, and the Linky so you can participate. Hopefully this will accommodate everyone.  xx
