Hi there!

Thank you to everyone who played in our sketch challenge! In case you haven't seen the post yet, the winners were announced here: www.flickr.com/groups/simonsaysstamp/discuss/721576751564...

Over on our Wednesday challenge blog, the theme this week is, "Totally Resistible." We thought it would be fun to use the same theme for Flickr challenge #56. That way, you can enter both challenges with the same card, if you want. Yay! REMEMBER THOUGH, FOR THE FLICKR CHALLENGE, YOU MUST USE ONE OF SIMON'S VERY OWN EXCLUSIVE PRODUCTS.

There are so many fun and different ways to use a resist technique and we're excited to see what you share!

Reminder: The Wednesday challenge (obviously) ends next Wednesday but you'll have longer for this one. (see date below)

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#56 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 October 27, 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! (When using this tag for Instagram, remember it is WITHOUT the challenge #)

Have fun resisting!
