Challenge Rules

Creative Fingers Challenge Rules

We are a fortnightly AAG challengeblog!
Always Anything Goes ~ every other friday!

That is our regular schedule! However a few times this will change, which we are going to state clearly in our then blogpost. Depending on the prize and sponsor, we might run our challenges for a month or longer. Every year we are having a summer schedule during july and august. Sometimes that means we extend the challenge, other times it will mean a break/pause in the challenges.
During december and january, we also like for our designers to enjoy the winter holidays and have time to do their shoppings. So usually the DT's will take a pause from the challenge, and instead there will be an inspiration blogpost and/or thank you to our generous sponsors blogpost. Some times even a blogcandy! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘

⭐  ⭐  ⭐  πŸ“Œ  ⭐  ⭐  ⭐

✔️ You may enter 3 times per challenge using any image or companies.
The entries must be new and different, as in not enter 3 times with the same project.
This also means NO back linking to older posts.
(The blogpost entered must be created after our challenge blogpost was published)

✔️ We are a handcraft challenge blog, so sorry, absolutely no digital cards/projects allowed. However, hybrid creations are okay πŸ–¨️ = digital elements printed out and used on a project. Just as long as it is a physical hand created project it is okay to enter! ✂️ πŸ‘Œ
✔️ Please link directly to your creation & blogpost, not to your main blog address,
and always remember to link back to our challenge blog in your blogpost!

✔️ You can combine our challenge with as many others as you would like!

✔️ You may enter our challenge from anywhere in the world 🌍 
No country restrictions!

✔️ Just make sure that the creation you enter is yours to share! And as this is a child friendly challenge blog, please make sure your projects are too.

✔️ You are responsible for linking up your own creation. If you're experiencing issues linking up,  link up tool has dissapeared or that you can't get your entry in on time before the link up closes ~ it is rare but it may happen and we are so sorry. Only entries linked in the link-up tool will count as a valid entry. We can only reccommend that you try refreshing the page, or closing then reopening your browser, or linking up again at a later time! πŸ‘

✔️ If you leave a comment, follow the blog or link up your creation on any Creative Fingers blogposts, you do so with the knowledge that your name and blog link are visible to all who visits this blog, that you have published your own personal details and noone elses, and that you have consented for this info to be displayed on this blog. You also agree to us displaying your linked creation photo/image and your name/nickname, in our winner announcement blogposts.. in the happy event you should you have won that is! We do not display or share the home address or email you give us to anyone that's not part of the Creative Fingers designteam or our sponsors!

We do appreciate it if you would be a follower of our challenge blog,
..but it is not a requirement to win ♥

✍️ About COMMENTING: ✍️

The DT will always try to leave a comment on your entries,
 but we are a small creative team on a blog with a large number of participants,
and sometimes life can get in the way of us commenting. Hope you understand ♥

We do appriciate it if Word Verification is turned off on your blog to make it easy to leave you a comment, and be aware that if a login is required for commenting, the DT's may not be able to do so.

πŸ†  About PRIZES:  πŸ†

One week between each fortnightly friday challenges, there will be a separate
blogpost were we will announce the previous challenge Winner & Top Three.

Winners will always be picked through,
and our Design Team will pick the Top Three.

πŸ₯‡  πŸ₯‡  πŸ₯‡

Sponsors: For each challenge there will either be one or two digital stamp company sponsors, and sometimes there will be a physical prize of crafty goodies sponsored by our DesignTeam members. We even have a yummy blogcandy from time to time!

Digital prizes will come either in the form of emailed digital images or an electronic gift card coupon. By claiming your prize from a sponsor you agree to their TOU (terms of use) of their artists digital images, and to never ever share the digital images with other people! They are for your personal use only, and in some cases the artists has an angel policy where they allow you to sell creations with their printed and colored artwork ~ do make yourself aware of theese before using the images you so generously have been given. Thank you! ♥

Physical prizes will be mailed out to anywhere in the world with regular postage fees paid. After the envelope has been posted at the postoffice, and sent to you, we are not responsible for any issues it may encounter on the way. Nor are we responsible for any import/taxed fees your country may add to it when it arrives, as we have sent it as a gift to you in good faith that you have the knowledge if that would happen.

However, we have not experienced many lost or damaged packages, only one so far that has gotten lost ~ and hopefully it will never happen again! We are sorry that we will not able to send you a replacement if it should happen, since theese are gifted prizes and mostly one of a kind.

✔️ We give the winners 2 weeks to claim their prize, if another deadline has not been given. Contact information / email address will be given in the winner blogpost announcements as follows:.
