TTT Winner and our final challenge at Shelly's Images

This Thursday we start our post with some sad news.  Unfortunately April will be our final challenge here at Shelly's Images.  We have had SO much fun with these challenges, but after lots of soul searching we have decided to discontinue the challenges.  Unfortunately the challenges take a ton of time and attention.  And lately my life has become more and more busy.  I want to send a heartfelt thank you to all of the girls that have been on my design team in the past.  They are an amazing group of talented designers and I feel so lucky to have met them.  I also want to send a special thank you to Darlene Pavlick who has really stepped in and spent countless hours helping me along the way.  
The blog will remain open and will continue to be a great resource for all the wonderful tutorials that have been posted over the years.

The store will also remain open at this time.  Unfortunately we are battling issues with the download codes on some of the digi stamps there.  All of the digi stamps will remain free.  If you have any issues with download codes please send me an email.  

Thanks again to all of you who have played along with our challenges.  It is hard to put into words how inspired I have been by your entries.  I will miss seeing them every month.

We want to announce the winner of our 
March ... LUCKY challenge. 

Our "Beary" Favorite project is #9 AJ!  This card has such amazing coloring!  We love the bright greens and think it was perfect for our challenge.
Please also be sure to grab your "Beary" Favorite badge here.  

Ready for a new challenge?!!?!!  We sure hope so!

For our April challenge,
the theme is . . .

Using Shelly's Image 'APRIL SHOWERS'


Challenge Rules:
  •  Link directly to your blog post entry, NOT your entire blog.
  •  Shelly's Images are not required (but we'd LOVE to see them).  If you do use a Shelly's Images Digi your project could be featured above.  Drop by our Digi Shop to get your free digi stamp so you have a chance to be featured.
  •  New projects only.  No back linking.
  •  Your entry must follow the theme.  For this challenge the theme is APRIL SHOWERS BRING MAY FLOWERS.
  •  Challenge entry ends at midnight CST on April 30th.  
  •  Please turn off word verification at your blog if you would enjoy a comment from us.  It is just too time consuming to type in word verification at each challenge entry.  Thank you for understanding.
  •  In your blog post be sure to provide a link to Shelly's Images Blog and list that you are entering our challenge. 
  • Life is busy for all of us here at Shelly's Images. We do projects with SI digi stamps and run the challenges just for the love of the hobby. We don't promise to comment on every entry.  If you get a comment from us you will know that we loved it enough to drop in and leave a special note.
We look forward to seeing your creation and thanks so much for joining in our challenge fun!
