Challenge 118 - 2 or 3 Word Sentiment

Welcome to Challenge 118
Oct 23 -Nov 4
Theme: 2 or 3 word Sentiment

Each of the DT is asked to name our TOP FIVE entries so we can narrow it down to our winners.  For this last challenge #117, I finally narrowed it down to the TOP TWENTY-ONE!   Hmmm.  Somehow, Julie managed to get the Top Five and the Winner out of us, and she posted them last night, so if you want to see if you won - merely scroll down to the previous post!

For #118 we are challenging you to create a project using a Sentiment of TWO or THREE words!  
Remember you can enter up to 5 times and enter as many other challenges as you like.  Other details regarding  challenges rules can be found by going to the tab at the top of the page titled "Challenge Rules".

 I have good news for you - we once again have some fabulous Word Art to offer you as Freebies!  Our very own Ginny H has started playing with different sentiments for you... here is the first set {one jpg and one png file} for you to download or copy and paste into your files.  She will offer another Sentiment next Thursday - so be sure to come look!  
IF you use one on your entry in this challenge - put a GH [for Ginny H] behind your name!  We will Spotlight our favorite on Nov 6 with the start of the new challenge!


Thank you Ginny H!

The Paper Shelter


We are most appreciative of 
The Paper Shelter  for providing the DT with two images to showcase for you all.  They are also sponsoring the winner's PRIZE of a $15 gift certificate!

Challenge 117 - Week Two

Welcome to  Week Two of Challenge 117
Oct 9-Oct 21
Theme: Anything goes 

Another fan favorite... Anything Goes!
Only a few rules to keep in mind --

  • As you might guess from our name - -we require a SENTIMENT!    Your sentiment needs to be appropriate for the theme/challenge.  That's it. You are not required to use anything specific, just the sentiment.  If you make a card and put the sentiment on the inside instead of the front, you need to include a picture [in your blog post] that shows us the sentiment.
  • You can enter up to 5 times and enter as many other challenges as you like
  • Other details regarding our challenges can be found by going to the tab at the top of the page titled "Challenge Rules".

Here are my teamies bringing more of the 
lovely & sometimes quirky character images by Heather Valentin!

Tracey from My-Creative-Place
using HoneysuckleRose

Ginny G from RubberMad
using "Twinkles Boo"


Mandy from Paper Panda
using Madeliene Boo's Christmas Star

Marie from Kompis-Kort-By-Mi
using MaryBoo's Candy Cane

Sandie from Fairy Tale Day Dream
using Rory Christmas Presents



We certainly appreciate the darling images that Heather from Lacey Sunshine Stamps  has provided for our Designers to use - and of course, 
the prize of 3 images for our challenge winner!




So there you go - it's everyone's favorite challenge - jump into the mix!

Challenge 116 - Halloween Sentiment

Welcome to Challenge 116
Sept 25-Oct 7
Theme:  Halloween Sentiment
[the theme is a sentiment for Halloween, NOT just a  Halloween card!]


Please, please Pleeease:  I was sooo bummed this last challenge because there were several entries that were absolutely stunning - BUT there was no sentiment. It breaks my heart to see some of that beautiful work disqualified!  I even wrote under the theme when I announced the challenge: "(make a masculine card using a  suitable sentiment)".  I noticed several of you shortened the theme in your notes to just the word "masculine" - but we ALWAYS require a sentiment [hence our name - "Aud Sentiments"].   

And here are our first five designers with their take on the theme... [notice all 5 have Halloween sentiments] OK - I know, I know!  You got the message! LOL!
I encourage you to use the link to their blogs for more pictures and details on their projects - and while you are there, leave a comment for them, it makes their day!

Julie from Julie's Crafty Spot
using Stella Witch Swiffer

Billie from Ink on My Fingers

Ginny H from As I do Rodos 
Sandy from Sandy's Creations

Nice going team with those fun & creative designs!  
And some great images, eh?  They are from our sponsor: 
Bugaboo Stamps
We love to team up with Bugaboo, they have such a variety of cute and funny images... always something for everybody!  They have provided our DT with images to make the inspiration projects for you and of course they will provide our winner with a lovely prize.  Thank you Bugaboo!

You can submit up to FIVE entries... 
so get ready, get set, GO!
