TTT Winners and July Challenge

Happy Thursday!  And Happy 4th of July to all of our friends in the United States.  Have a safe and happy 4th!
We have some exciting new changes happening at Shelly's Images beginning with this July challenge.  Our challenges here at Shelly's Images will now begin on the first Thursday of each month and will run through the end of each month.  That gives everyone a full month to play along!  Be sure to check out the sidebar for a complete list of upcoming challenges, tutorials, and special events.
The second fun change is that the DT will usually work with a Shelly's Images digi stamp of their choice for each challenge.  That means you get to see lots of different digi stamps each month.  
So...let the fun begin!  To start off we want to announce the winner of our 
Stars, Stripes, and Sparkle Challenge.  

Our "Beary" Favorite project is #4 Jen from ABC Art, Belly Dancing and Crafting. Congratulations! Jen, I will be emailing you very soon with your $6 gift voucher.  (today is July 4th so please forgive a little tardiness on my part.  It may be Friday before I email your voucher) Please also be sure to grab your "Beary" Favorite badge here.
We also want to give special recognition to two other entries that round out our top 3 picks.  
The DT chose #14 Emily Thubbron from Em's Many Thoughts and #11 Suze from Crafty Suze.  Congratulations on receiving this special recognition from our DT!  Please be sure to grab your Top 3 badge here

Ready for a new challenge?!!?!!  We sure hope so!
Our July 2013 Challenge is...
Show us what you got! Christmas in July Edition
That's right!  It is our favorite "Anything Goes" Challenge.  But the twist is that your project must have a Christmas theme.

It is the perfect time to get started on those Christmas cards.  Christmas will truly be here before you know it.  We can't wait to see the Christmas themed projects you create.  And remember, you have the entire month of July to enter your projects.  

Need a little inspiration?  How about these great projects from the DT

Shelly using Christmas Garland

Darlene using Christmas Cardinal

Amanda using Santa

Miranda using Christmas Cardinal

Gerda using Santa's Old Faithful
