Hi Ho, Challenge Players!!! I'm super happy that you've decided to join us for IBFCC8!! We had a small showing for our Back to School challenge. I'd like to thank those fine gals who played along! Our winner is Lawren!! Fantastic projects, Lawren!! You'll be contacted soon regarding your prize!

Speaking of PRIZES......are you ready to play along with our latest challenge??? I might get all "ruley" on you so, please keep reading! :)

Our theme this week, as demonstrated by our lovely DT, is Shabby Chic! If you are unfamiliar with the phrase-ology, you can google it OR, trust me! Shabby Chic = worn or distressed. The terminology is derived from Interior Design and involves either repurposing older items and/or distressing or antiquing new items to make them look old and weathered. In the stamping world, it could be your inks, your technique or your paper choices! You can see from the samples, that there is a WIDE variety of interpretations---THAT means, EVERYONE can play!!

The rules, to be considered for a prize, are as follows:

1. Have Fun

2. Link your post/project back to the IBFCC8 posting

3. You are not required to use IBFS images (rubber or digital), but WE SURE LIKE IT WHEN YOU DO!

4. Tell EVERYONE to play along*

5. Have fun!!

You can do that, right?? Get Ready, Get Set and Go!

*IBFS reserves the right to limit the awarding of a prize when there are less than 7 participants.

We are currently introducing the I Brake For Challenges challenge #7! Our theme is Back To School.

Our rules are simple: Have fun, link your post back to this one so others can play along and....did I mention, have fun?

While we love it when you use images (rubber or digital) from IBFS, you don't have to!

Play, play, play along and tell everyone you know!

As we have now moved to an every other week schedule, you will have TWO weeks to play along. The challenge winner will always be announced with the new challenge. YES!!! There is a prize--thanks for asking! Your prize, should you win, will be some free dollars for the IBFS Store--how coolio is that?
Get Ready. Get Set. Go!
