December Challenge: Get Sentimental
This month’s challenge is one that the coloring-challenged will love: make a card with a SENTIMENT as the main image on the card!

  • You can add other embellishments, but make sure it’s the words that sing. We know our heroes love to carry heartfelt messages home, so let’s give them great choices. (And don’t get Sandy started on the live laugh love thing, ya know. LOL!) 
  • You can use any stamp company’s products aside from glitter and follow the other normal OWH guidelines – ODBD stamps and supplies not required. (If you link to a card that doesn’t meet OWH guidelines, your card will be pulled out of the drawing.)
Every first Saturday we’ll be posting the challenge here on the Stars and Stamps blog, and you’ll have all month til just before next challenge starts in January to get your card linked up. ODBD is offering TWO generous $25 gift certificates for prizes, so you’ll want a chance at that!

Bonus prize for our heroes:
Our Daily Bread Designs will be making a shipping donation based on the number of cards in the InLinkz (only one entry per person!) – ODBD will sponsor one large box of cards for every 25 cards linked to the challenge post, with a maximum of 2 boxes per month. So be sure to tell all your friends to come and enter the challenge too!

We’ve got some great inspiration designs for you from Our Daily Bread Designs – wow wow wow! What beautiful ways to use sentiments!

On your mark, get set….
Now after seeing these and take a trip to see the love cards from the November challenge, your creativity tank should be filled up and ready to go! Reminder: Dec 10th is the due date for Archway Valentines; and Dec 31 is the last last last date for any valentines at all. Don’t miss out on helping our heroes send their sweetie a note! And let’s be sure to reach 50 entries this month too…..share share share and get all your OWH cardmaking buddies to join in!
