CHANGE IS GOOD

Hello, First off I want to thank all of the fans, sponsors and designers who have made this challenge blog a fun and happy place to play. I also want to thank my design team for the many wonderful projects they created using both my images and sponsor images-Bravo Ladies! I love life with a twist and new things-after some lengthy discussion we at Rick St dennis EDT have decided that one more challenge blog isn't the best we could do-we have so much more to offer. My wonderful team will be offering one more challenge on MARCH 1-Spring/Easter is in the AIr and at that time we will begin the switch over of this blog to it's new face on the web SPARKLE and GLITTER the Rick St dennis EDT BLOG The new blog along with Rick St dennis MFA and Airless Chambers blogs will be one arm of an online presence featuring Rick St dennis images and the talents of the RSD design team-almost an online magazine featuring more tutorials, games, quizzes, photos, product reviews and interactive events than ever before. We hope that everyone will stick with us through the change over-be assured we have many surprises in store for you. Again my thanks to all of you who continue to support my eclectic artwork and use my digis-so much more is ahead, exciting new things and as always done in the spirit of my favorite saying. "If it Isn't fun, don't do it". Get your Springiest projects ready or our final challenge on March 1 so we can wrap the challenges with a bang up event then stay with us as we change over to our new format in Mid-March 2013-you will be dazzled. Best Wishes RICK

Challenge # 10 - All The Things I Love

Good Morning Everyone
Are we all ready and raring to go for a new challenge?
Before we tell you what it is, we must thank everyone for their amazing pieces of art that were entered into the last challenge "Hugs and Hearts/Kisses" that Bearly Mine Designs so very kindly sponsored. We will be back in due course to let you know which pieces won our hearts. (Hopefully you won't have to wait as long this time for the results)

Still in that mushy mood that afflicts most of us this time of year? We hope so, but this isn't about the person you love, it's about  you! .What in your life do you cherish? What could you not live without? Now that's got you thinking, I hope.

ALL THE THINGS I LOVE

This week we are very lucky to have the sponsorship of
and the lucky winner will get a 3 piece grab bag of rubber stamps from the shop.  
UPDATE    
There will be TWO winners - The other random drawn prize winner will get a $20 gift card to the sps store                                                                                       
They have some fabulous images available in both rubber and now digi. Well worth going along to the shop and having a look at the updated content.

There will of course be the usual three EDT picks that get chosen from all of the challenge entries. These lucky people get images from Rick and a badge for their blog to wear with pride.

We on the EDT were very lucky to be able to play with some of them as well as Rick's amazing images available in his etsy shop - as if you didn't know by now.
These are the fantabulous projects that Team Sparkle have made to (hopefully) inspire you into getting those thinking caps on and those crafty fingers working.

OK - Mojo at the ready?
So what are you waiting for? The invitation to play is always open, and as long as the theme is being followed and we don't mind whose images are used. Of course we do love to see Rick's being used and if you are using one, be sure to link first to your creation then a second link to your blog. That way you get two entries into the prize draw.  We don't even mind if you want to enter more than one project. We love seeing them all.

Don't you just hate it when real life gets in the way of this idyllic world we paint. You know the one, where we are in blogland and there is no family or illness to stop the crafting we all love. Also you know this Utopia doesn't exist.

Challenge # 9 - Hugs and Hearts

WOW - you guys out there are amazing! What a wonderful array of projects away from that square and it makes us glow to see many of you using images from Rick's shop for that double bite of the prize cherry. That time it was 5 digis from Stamp Art Design. Thank you Kathryne for sponsoring our challenge. I'll be along in due course to reveal the winners, after we have narrowed it down.

A sad piece of news before we start. Donna has decided to step down from the EDT for various reasons. We all wish her health, happiness and every success in the future

Now! Can you believe it? We're already at challenge # 9! Where's the time gone?
It's (primarily) the turn of Team Glitter to tempt you into joining in. Some of the EDT from the other team can't help wanting to muscle in on the action again. More the merrier.
We have another fabulous sponsor lined up as well. So it will be the usual prize of digis from Rick's shop for the EDT picks and Mr Random gets to choose who gets the very generous prize of a £10 gift voucher to spend in the shop of


So, what do you have to do to be in the running for these wonderful prizes?
Simple.
HUGS AND HEARTS
It's drawing close to that smoochy and sentimental time of year. So these hugs and kisses could be a Valentine project for your significant other. They could be for a child or just your BFF. Who will be getting a token of your love? To whom are you going to dedicate your project. Oh dear - we are just so nosey and can't wait to find out.
Remember - the beauty of both hugs and kisses is that one size fits all and normally when one gives - one also receives.

As I said, the girls and Rick have been busy using Rick's fabulous images, some teamed them with papers from Bearly Mine that we were lucky to play with.

RICK using Comtessa and paper from Bearly Mine Designs

Alison using Valentine Turtle and a digi paper from Bearly Mine Designs

Well done everyone - gorgeous creations from all
Rick St Dennis has some fabulous images, both new and the old favourites, available in his Etsy shop, just right for this challenge. Whether you like them traditional, that bit more of a difference or downright creepy, there's something for everyone.
So what are you waiting for? The invitation to play is always open, and as long as the theme is being followed and we don't mind whose images are used. Of course we do love to see Rick's being used and if you are using one, be sure to link first to your creation then a second link to your blog. That way you get two entries into the prize draw.  We don't even mind if you want to enter more than one project. We love seeing them all.

EDIT - due to a technical hitch with the challenge title - we will accept Hugs and Kisses for the first few days
The title has now been changed to reflect Mr Linky. Sorry for the confusion.
