Hi there and happy Friday!

A big thank you goes out to everyone who played in challenge 38! There were so many beautiful cards, filled with pretty colors, hearts and love! If you'd like to see who the winners were, check this post:

Challenge 39 is Come Tag Along! We would like to see you create a tag, or a card with a tag as part of its design. Any theme is fine. You can use any colors too, as long as there's a tag somewhere on your project, you're good to go!

Here's 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#39 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.

--- 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 also please add a link back to this discussion thread.

--- 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 March 3, 2016 to upload your cards/projects to the SSS Flickr group. The random winners will be announced shortly thereafter, on the same day, in a new discussion thread.

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

I recently have problems with tagging pics for the challenge right ... I'm not sure Flickr "allows" hashtags like SSSflickrchallenge#39 , which have # (hashtag) in it. Should I use SSSflickrchallenge39 ?

Hmmm? That's strange. I'll add it to your photo for you, Rosali - no worries. I always check everyone's tags to make sure they're correct and then add the right one if needed. It works for me, so hearing this is weird.

I just tried it on your tag pic, Rosali and it won't let me do it. As I said above, I do it all the time so I'm not sure why it won't allow it this time. Make sure you "allow" that in your settings. That could by why.
Yay! I finally have time to make a card. Thanks for Barb, for always arranging this fun challenges!

Thank you, Barb, for trying to fix it. <3 It seems so be ok now, since I can see my pic on the challenge 39 now - maybe I was just too impatient! bdengler4 (Barb Summers Engler):

Yup, you can search the tag and it will actually look different each time - Flickr is weird! Glad it's okay.
