Hi stampers!

We hope you've been checking our blog the last couple of days! STAMPtember has started and we'll be celebrating this wonderful hobby of ours ALL MONTH LONG! There will be blog hops, giveaways, inspiration and lots of fun each day, so don't miss a thing!

Our 53rd Flickr challenge is "Anything Goes!" And it just so happens that our Wednesday Challenge blog is hosting the same theme, so more chances for you to win - yay!

*** Make sure to read down below in the prize paragraph because Barb wants to add her own prize for the challenge! Thanks Barb - you ROCK!

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#53 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 September 15, 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! And Barb wanted to help us celebrate STAMPtember so she is also giving away a $25.00 gift card! That means there will actually be THREE winners this time! Woo, hoo!

We're on Instagram!

We're looking forward to seeing your entries! Have fun and happy stamping!

I began working on a special project this morning for the The Wednesday Challenge and now the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge. I have to say, for an experiment, it has turned out beautifully so far and uses a Stamptember favorite from last year along with several Simon Simon Says Stamp products.
