Anything BUT Winter

Happy Monday to you all!

Hope you are doing fine. I'm slowly recovering from another virus that completely knocked me....sigh.... So as you might guess by the topic of today's BnW Challenge - I'm done with Winter and looking forward to Spring and some sunshine.....

That's why I challenged the girls and you - to create something that don't have anything to do with Winter.

UPDATE:  Some exciting things have been happening with Belles 'n Whistles.  Summer has decided to allow ANY Elisabeth Bell stamp to be used for challenges. 

While we, here at BnW, will continue showcasing the gorgeous Belles 'n Whistles Stamps, you are not limited to ONLY BnW stamps.  As long as Elisabeth Bell Designed it, You can use it.  Whether it be one of Elisabeths Digi's, or her designs from BnW, Ladybug and Friends, SCACD, or Whiff of Joy.  And yes, even some of the old Sugar Nellie - Sweet Art Ebony Girls...  

Soooooo, those of you who DO use a Belles 'n Whistles image will have the opportunity to enter your name into the random drawing a 2nd time.  Here is how it will work.

Enter the challenge using a Belles 'n Whistles image as you normally would, but because you used a BnW image, you can then upload your card into Belles Photo Gallery, (link is on our side bar) under the corresponding challenge catagory. 
When the random number is chosen, those that are in the gallery will be included in the draw, with the exception of DT's cards...    I think this will give more people a chance to win, and gives our loyal BnW stamp users an extra chance at winning. 

That's not all.... The DT will be picking a Top 3 for each challenge. And you will get a badge to display proudly on your blog.  However, If you've gotten the 1st spot, you will also be given a chance to be on our GDT for the following week.  For instance,  a top 3 is chosen at the end of this challenge. If your card was listed as #1, it is announced on Jan 31st.  You will then become our GDT for Feb 14th.     Fun, Right???

Okay, now back to our dear Anki's Post....   

Before I show you what the girls have been up to - here's the lucky winner from last challenge: Kerri. Please send Summer your contact details.

And now - here's some sweet inspiration from the BnW ladies:






Add your project with Inklinkz below. Looking fwd to see what you create!
