Week Two
Nov 19 - Dec 1
Anything Goes plus a Sentiment

Happy Thanksgiving America!!

Click HERE for the Winner and Top Five for Challenge #144

Dec 2 will be the end of the term asked of our Design Team.  Most of our wonderful Team will be staying on into the new year - helping Julie with all the changes she has planned for 2016!  For now, the Team is taking a well deserved break for the month of December - to rest up & re-energize!  There will be no challenges for December... but there are changes in the wind!   You will be hearing from our leader Julie with details on the new direction for Aud Sentiments soon!
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
This week's Freebie Sentiment 
Since we require a sentiment on your project, Ginny H from our Design Team is providing a sentiment every week for you!  You are welcome to copy and paste any or all of the sentiments for your personal use, or use it as inspiration for your design.  If you use Ginny's sentiment, she would love it if you leave her a comment, either here or on her website As.I.Do.Rodos.
 Thank you Ginny H!

 Come back next week for another FREEBIE!
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

I want to mention again how much we appreciate Lacy Sunshine Stamps for sponsoring this challenge!  They have provided images for our DT to showcase for your inspiration and they are providing the prize for this challenge's winner - 3 images of winner's choice! 




Here are more of the Aud Sentiments'  Designers to provide their take on the challenge.  If you want more details on any project, or want to see more of their work - their blog names are linked for your convenience.
Unfortunately, these top three will be leaving the Team as of Dec 2.  I want to thank Lisa and Annie for the time and effort they put in every challenge to showcase our sponsors' images in such creative ways!  Best wishes for your very own 2016 new directions gals!!

It has been two and a half years that I have been with Aud Sentiments, and writing the weekly posts for about one and a half of those years.  It has been an honor to be able to do that, and an experience I will never forget!  Thank you Julie for the opportunity to participate in this blogs' leadership.  A special thank you to my friend Ginny H for always having my back when things went south with my posts!  
I am so looking forward to so many things... giving my personal commitments a priority, branching out in my artistic growth, and finally, getting back to using more of my red rubber - after all, I am - RubberMAD!

Annie from Just for Fun

Get ready, Get set, GO!!
Only THREE Key Rules:
  1. As you might guess from our name - we require a SENTIMENT that is appropriate for the theme/challenge.  If you make a card and put the sentiment on the inside instead of the front, you need to include a picture on your blog post that shows us the sentiment.  
  2. Please mention Aud Sentiments and create a link to us.  When you enter your link at Inlinkz, it needs to go directly to your project, not just to your blog's home page.
  3. You may enter up to 5 times, but all entries need to be new & posted after the start of our challenge.  
Other details regarding our challenges can be found by going to the tab titled "Challenge Rules" at the top of the page.
