We love Fridays, don't you?

Not only is it the start of the weekend but we have our newest challenge for you today too!

We really enjoyed seeing all of your floral/Mother's Day entries for our last challenge! You are all so talented and we love seeing how you use our stamps, dies and stencils! If you missed the announcement of our two winners from challenge #18, you can check that post out here:

This week, we'd like to see you all create your own background. Some fun examples would be to use stencils, or watercolors, or take a tiny image and stamp it to create a fun design, or use a graphic image to create a cool pattern, or make it simple and just use a background stamp. You can use ink, paint, gelatos, markers, gesso. . . .the possibilities are endless!

Here is a reminder of the rules:
--- Each card or project created for the challenge must use at least one Simon Says Stamp exclusive brand image, such as their stamps, stencils or dies. This is an important rule. Simon sponsors this group and these challenges, so it's only fair that players use Simon's very own products.

--- Please upload cards to your Flickr photostream and tag them with the appropriate tag name. For this week's challenge it will be SSSflickrchallenge#19 - all one word with no spaces. Tagging photos is easy - just find the "add tag" area, below and to the right, when looking at any photo in your photostream, click it, add the tag, then press enter.

--- Please mention in your photo-description, underneath your photo, that your card or project is for the challenge. Also, please let us know which SSS exclusive products you used.

--- Don't forget to add your photo to the SSS Flickr group. If you don’t do this, your card may not be seen!

--- Projects for the challenges must be newly created.

--- Submit as many projects as you like for each challenge.

--- You can add your card or project to no more than two other challenges.

--- If you share projects made for our challenges on your blogs too, please share the inspiration graphic in your post (if there is one) and you must add a link back to this discussion thread/challenge.

--- We'd love it if you could take a small amount of time, after uploading your card or project to the group, to comment on a few other group members' photos. We all love to receive encouragement for our creations!

You have until Thursday, 9:00am EST May 28, 2015 to upload your cards/projects to our SSS Flickr group. The random winners will be announced shortly thereafter, on the same day, in a new discussion thread.

As always, there will be TWO winners, randomly selected from all the entries. Each winner will receive a $25.00 gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp online store!

We're on Instagram! by Simon.Says.Stamp

Do you use Instagram? If so, please add #sssflickrchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them there too!

We're excited to see the fabulous backgrounds you come up with! Have fun and happy stamping!
