Boots 2 Stamps Inspiration Challenge #2

So, who wants to join me for my 2nd Inspiration Challenge?!?! Remember that this month, the prize for one lucky participant is a free stamp set!!! In January, because I just started the challenge last week, there will only be 2 challenges this month so the odds of winning are even better!

Here's the picture that I chose when I was browsing the website Traditional Home (click on the image to view it larger):
How do you enter? First, use the picture to inspire you. Perhaps you see a certain pattern in the image, or the colors, or textures or even shapes that get your creative juices flowing. Whatever it is that inspires you from the photo, run with it and get stamping! After your project is done, simply leave a comment here telling me that you uploaded your creation over at Stampin’ Addicts. It’s FREE to be a member, and if you’re not already a member of this FABULOUS community dedicated to all things Stampin’ Up!, then click HERE to sign up (remember, it’s free!!) to get a username, and then you can upload to the gallery! Stampin’ Addicts has Forums where you can chat with other stampers, a Buy-Sell-Trade section, and a Gallery where you can upload your pictures for others to see. A fun feature of their gallery is that on the home page, the recent uploads get a huge spotlight – you will see your own uploads appear there from time to time, and that is fun.

For my challenges, when you upload to an online gallery like Stampin’ Addicts, please use the “keyword” for that week’s challenge so that the projects are easy to find. The keyword will always be B2S## (which stands for Boots 2 Stamps, and the number sign represents the number of the challenge).

This week’s keyword is B2S02.

Another note of importance about Stampin’ Addicts – it is a SU! oriented website, so your cards/projects will need to be made with SU! items. If they’re not, then don’t post over there, but post it somewhere (your blog, photobucket, etc.) so that I can see it and you can still be in the drawing. Of course – I can’t make you use SU! items, but that is what I love and that is what Stampin’ Addicts is for – but it won’t disqualify you from a chance to win – Random.org draws numbers randomly, not based on product used ;) Posting your project to your blog as well, even if you upload to Stampin’ Addicts is PERFECTLY fine. Please just include reference and a link to my post (in your blog post and in your picture upload at Stampin’ Addicts, etc.).

So – after you’ve stamped, go upload at Stampin’ Addicts and be sure to use the keyword “B2S02″ (no quotation marks needed) and include a link to this post, and then come back here and tell me that you’ve posted using Mr. Linky and include a link to your posted project so I can keep track of who has played along for the monthly drawing!!! Easy peasy!!
