February 2020 YSBP Contest

Hello and welcome to our February Contest!  This month is a special Celebration Contest as we are celebrating with one of our longtime DT member's, Holley, for her 10th anniversary of successful Brain Surgeries!  She is having a fabulous celebration on Holley's Blog and giving away amazing prizes every day this month in celebration of her health and in thanks to the crafting community who were so supportive of her when she was undergoing Brain Surgery.

Go over to Holley's Blog and join in the fun as she will be mailing out over 100 prizes this month!! Prizes everyday so leave a comment on her blog everyday to win.
As always, you are welcome to enter an anything goes card this month and there will be a random drawing for a prize!  As long as your card is recent (no backlinking).  

However, there will also be special prizes handed out this month, for those who follow the contest and use stamps from our sponsor, Sandra Caldwell of Babycakes DND on Etsy.  Join in the fun using one of her stamps and you will get a goodie from Holley's Blog.

PLUS, in addition to the regular blog winner, picked by random number (this is for an anything goes card, of which all the Sandra Caldwell cards are included)  There are Additional PRIZES this month, they can include: stamp&die cutting sets, dies (for those overseas these are the easiest and least expensive to mail to you), stamp sets there's so many goodies to hand out, see them on links at the very bottom of the Feb 1st posting on Holley's blog HERE.

Some of the Categories in which prizes will be handed out if you use a Sandra Caldwell stamp:  Sandra Caldwell's favorite, Holley's Favorite, John's Favorite, Best Celebration theme, Best overall card,  Best Coloring, Best Embellishments, and any other categories decided  (hmmm, I am thinking of categories?  fun card shape, best black and white, ….) 

so lets see some wonderful samples that the Design team created, these were done with a very special image that was designed JUST FOR THE OCCASION by Sandra Caldwell just for Holley!  The image is called Head's Up Holley, all the DT Members are doing the Celebration theme for the month

Here's the Design Team's creation using this special stamp given by Sandra Caldwell.

NOTE:  for the contest, you do not need this stamp--ANY Sandra Caldwell stamp is acceptable!
and as always, you are welcome to enter any card and be eligible for the main anything goes drawing of the month.

Now we are ready to see your fabulous creations!  You can share up to three cards per month with us, unless they are with the sponsor's images, then there is no limit.  Please grab our badge to let everyone know you play with us!  If you would like to try out to be a guest designer, please add GDT to your name when entering
