Phindy's Place Challenge #36 - Give Thanks With Scraps

Good Morning!  It's Christmas Eve and I hope you are all ready for Christmas, with your card made and written, presents wrapped and your mince pies baked!

We have some changes in store for you at Phindy's Place for you today.  First of all, to give the fantabulous Design Team a little time off over Christmas, this Challenge will run for two weeks, closing on 7 January 2011.

Also, after much thought, we have decided to open the challenge to all-comers and you will no longer need to use a Phindy's Place image to enter.  However, what we love best of all is to see your projects that use Phindy's Place images!  If you enter using a Phindy's Place image, you will get two entries to the draw to win a gift certificate.  To do this, enter your project as usual to Inklinkz.  Then, make a further entry (you won't be able to link to the same blog entry) and, this time, leave your name with "Phindy image" added.

The winner of the Challenge will be chosen by and will receive an $8 Gift Certificate to the Phindy's Place store. As it says above, entrants using a Phindy's Place image will get a second entry to the draw.  The Pick of the Week wins a 20% off voucher for the Phindy's Place store. Don't forget that once a month we will choose an overall winner from the weekly winners and they will be offered a Guest position on the DT - and of course a free image from Phindy's Place to use for that week's challenge! 

OK now on to the Challenge...  This week we are making "Thank You" cards and projects, everyone needs Thank You cards after Christmas!  There is an additional, optional challenge to use up your scraps.  If you're like me, after the rush of Christmas card making there is a whole mountain of scraps lying around to choose from!  I hope to see lots and lots of lovely entries.

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all the Design Team at Phindy's Place, here are some fantastic Phindy projects for you to enjoy:

First we have a marvellous card from our DT Guest, Jackie Mooney.   Stunning card Jackie, thanks!
