Challenge #21 Warm & Fuzzy

Welcome to our 21st Challenge at Aurora Wings.  My goodness!  Only 4 more sleeps until it's Christmas.  WooHoo!  Whatever you celebrate, Mitzi and the team hope your holiday season is filled with love and joy, which brings us to our challenge theme of...

What gives YOU that warm, fuzzy feeling?  Is it holiday traditions, true love, a cozy sweater, sweet furry animals?  We can't wait to see what puts a smile on your face and warms you from the inside out.

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)

Now how about some fabulous inspiration from the DT?

We are thrilled to have Kevin McCrafty  from McCrafty's Cards joining us this challenge as Guest Designer.

The challenge will be open at 9:00 am EST Monday December 21st and close at 11:55 pm Saturday January 16th 2016. Entries posted prior to December 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.  I'm so sorry, but we do have our Tags and Bags currently running on our Facebook Group page, so you are welcome to post your appropriate entries there through December 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 #21 in the subject line, and I will add it to the Linky so you can participate. Hopefully this will accommodate everyone.  xx

Here's wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all of us at Aurora Wings.
