April 2015 Challenge

All of the March 2015 Winners were announced here.

Our theme is always Anything Goes: use loose glitter, embossing powder, and/or flocking.

If you use glitter, it must be loose glitter.  Therefore the following are NOT eligible: glitter pens, glitter markers, glitter glue, pre-glittered papers, pre-glittered embellishments.    Use any image, digital or a rubber, to create your submission.  

Want to be a SNS Featured Artist? 
It's easy - just use any SNS image (rubber or digital) and submit it below.  You will be featured on the SNS Facebook page as well as our monthly Winners Post.  You never know when we're going to have extra prizes for our Featured Artists.  
Sometimes we may give you advance notice and sometimes you may not know until the winners are announced - so you'll want to participate every month!
We are having an announced give-away specifically for our Featured Artists this month.  One Featured Artist will receive 1 jar of glitter, 1 jar of embossing powder, and 1 SNS Exclusive Digi of her choice.  So ink up (or print out) those SNS images and enter today.
This month we have FOUR new stamp sets to reveal.  All of these sets will be 20% off until April 3.  Friendship Flowers #702  stamp set will be included in this month's Technique Video Kit Club.

The sets are:

Get Well Friends #701   (digi version DIGI701)
Friendship Flowers #702   (digi version DIGI702)
Old Well #703  (digi version DIGI703)
Spring Window #704   (digi version DIGI704)

For a chance to win one of these sets, please join us for the Mystery Designer Party being held on the SNS Blog  starting March 31, beginning at 9pm EST.  The winners will be announced on April 3 on the SNS blog and FB page. So hurry on over to the shoppe once you've checked out all the great projects from the designers.

Now it's your turn to get creative and link up your projects. You can enter as many times as you wish, as long as each project is a new project.  No back-linking please.  (See Guidelines for more details.)

  NoteIf you use an SNS image, please also leave a comment below so we make sure to give you special recognition as a Featured Artist. You have until April 25th to participate and the winners will be announced on April 30.

I'm so sorry I missed the challenge but I had a problem with my camera and couldn't get anything photographed until too late on Saturday. Just want to let you see the card anyway. :-D
