Gentle Reminder of Our Challenge Rules


A gentle reminder when entering our
'Anything Goes' challenges, that we allow only
one entry per person. Up to 3 entries in normal challenges.
Please also make sure that you link back to our challenge too
and that you enter no more than 10 challenges in total including ours.
Finally, I know some don't understand this completely, but it's simple really...
We want as a challenge, to support the 'original artists' out there and our lovely sponsors,
So we don't allow you to enter with artists that are known to derive their designs from other artists works. If you're unsure about this, feel free to ask us in more detail. But here's a hint, if it kinda looks like another artists work, but it's not quite as good, you can be pretty sure, it's a derivative artist. If you're not sure who the original artists are, you can safely use images from any of our sponsors,
as we only accept sponsorship from original artists.
You can also refer to sites like 'Stamp Out' for further details.
Talented artist Mo Manning gives some great guidelines on this.
Happy crafting and see you again very soon with a new challenge!

Hugs and happy crafting,
Dawn, Wends and the Southern Girls Design Team
