Happy Friday!

Are you ready for the weekend? We are and we hope you'll all find some time to get crafty!

Thank you to those members who entered our last Flickr challenge, Sparkle and Shine! If you didn't see the winners' post, you can check it our here:

For this last challenge in March, we thought you might like to have another, Anything Goes challenge. That way, you can enter an Easter card if you want, or maybe a card for someone getting married. You could make a birthday card, thank you card, sympathy card, or whatever comes to mind. We think it's fun to not put any restrictions on a challenge once in a while. Hope you do too!

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#41 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 EDT March 31, 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!

We're on Instagram!

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

We hope you all enjoy having an anything goes challenge once in awhile!

Have fun and happy stamping!
The Simon team

Great! I hope to make something before holidays! :)
Just uploaded mine! Thanks, Barb for making this an easy one for us!
I have been wondering about this for a while so finally I get around to asking. I understand that when I add a card to your challenge that I can have the card entered into only 2 more challenges. Is it okay if I post the card to other groups that have no challenges going but post the cards just to display them?

Coffin Cards & Creations:

Yes, for sure! As long as you used that group's exclusive products. All stamping companies that have a Flickr group usually have the same (sometimes unwritten) rule - you must use their products on anything you add to that group's pool. Hope that makes sense!
