Christmas Gift Challenge Participants So Far
Our Challenge Today is Gratitude

It's Almost Challenge Time Again

And Kelli, our Design Team Leader, has really come up with some wonderful challenges for the next 2 months.  They start this Thursday, October 1.  Here is a list of the fun card challenges coming our way:

  • Oct 1 -- Gratitude Cards - With Thanksgiving and Christmas on their way, this gives us time to get some cards ready for friends far and near.
  • Oct 15 -- Shaker Cards - A chance for us at IO, to try out the new Shake- It Pouches designed by Mitra.  They have self adhesive and come in kits with cards, envelopes, etc., or you can get the Shake-It Pouches on the side.  Click HERE to see for yourself!   Mine should be here soon and I can't wait to get started!  You don't have to use these for your shaker card to participate.
  • Nov 5 -- Wreath Cards - For the season, Christmas, etc.  Another chance to get cards ready for the holidays if you like, or for any other occasion.
  • Nov 19 -- Winter Cards - Another chance to create something by season or holiday.

All of you are invited to participate.  The rules are the same:

  • All Impression-Obsession stamps are to be used.
  • Entries will be accepted until Saturday, October 3 at midnight.
  • They are to be emailed to me using the Email Shirley link provided near the top of the second sidebar to the right.
  • All participant's cards will be posted here and also permanently in our IO Customer Gallery in the very next sidebar over.

This time there will be a WINNER of an Impression-Obsession $25 Gift Certificate to be chosen from those participating using  The selection will be made on Monday, October 5, in a new post here.

The gift certificate is ready and I can't wait to see who will receive it!!  They may want to try out the new Shake-It pouches, and even the Mega Mount and Cover-A-Card Stamps!  So show us your beautiful Gratitude designs! I am off to finish my card for Thursday. It's a tutorial with Gratitude!  I am all excited to see what you and the Design Time have created too.  If you want some ideas, take a look at the Photo Albums to the right.  See you all then!
