Jan. 14-20 Designer Drafts challenge

Hello, Paper Smooches fans & friends!

***NOTE: SORRY for the early posting...I hit the wrong button and didn't notice until 20 hours later:) Please know that we def. check out ALL entries before picking any winners and featured players [that's why they were missing in the original post]. 

Today starts another fun challenge!! Be sure to check the bottom of this post for last week's winner and featured players :) 

The second week of each month is always a Designer Drafts challenge.

This week we are inspired by these sketches!
So friends, that's your challenge--use this sketch for your creations! Follow it closely or use it loosely....just have FUN!! 

Create a NEW project (card, tag, layout, altered item, etc).

You must use at least one Paper Smooches stamp or free digi.

(stamps from other companies can be used, but please make sure that PS images are easily seen)

Post your Paper Smooches SPARKS project on your blog.  We would love you to include our SPARKS banner (shown on the right column) somewhere on your post, but it is not required.  (right click on the SPARKS challenge banner and save to your computer.  If you have any trouble, I am happy to e-mail the image to you) 
Please link to our web site: www.papersmoochesstamps.com - and include Paper Smooches somewhere on your post.  Submit a direct link to your blog post using our linking system below.

If you do not have a blog, please upload your project to our Flickr Group and link to our web site in your description.  Submit a link to your gallery image using our linking system below.

Here's what you are playing for:
  • Two Paper Smooches SPARKS players will be chosen as our Featured Players. Featured Players will not receive a badge or gift certificate. 
  • One Paper Smooches SPARKS player will be chosen and named our PS Pro.  This player will be featured on the PSS challenge post as well as on the PS blog (Fridays), receive a blog button to display on their blog, and $30 credit to the Paper Smooches store!!!
