Hi everyone!

Happy Friday! We announced the winners of our Summer Fun challenge yesterday. You can see the post here: www.flickr.com/groups/simonsaysstamp/discuss/721576848191...

We know these summer months can be busy with get-togethers, vacations, taking care of kids, out of school all day, etc, so we decided on an easy theme this time. "Birthday Bash" is the theme for challenge #73. You can use any colors, any technique, any design, as long as it's for someone's birthday. And we know everyone can always use more b-day cards in their stash, right?

***NOTE: We do not have any guest artists this time. We had them lined up but it just didn't work out. We're hoping to find two designers to share their talent for the next challenge.

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#73 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, June22, 2017 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 #)

We're looking forward to seeing your projects!

Have fun!

Missed the last challenge, but that's not going to happen for this one--haha! I've got to make another summer BD card, so the theme is perfect for me!
