July Challenge

Our theme is always Anything Goes: use loose glitter, embossing powder, and/or flocking.



If you use glitter, it must be loose glitter.  Therefore the following are NOT eligible: glitter pens, glitter markers, glitter glue, pre-glittered papers, pre-glittered embellishments.    Use any image, digital or a rubber, to create your submission.  



Want to be a SNS Featured Artist? 
It's easy - just use any SNS image (rubber or digital) and submit it below.  You will be featured on the SNS Facebook page as well as our monthly Winners Post.  You never know when we're going to have extra prizes for our Featured Artists.  
Sometimes we may give you advance notice and sometimes you may not know until the winners are announced - so you'll want to participate every month!

~~~~~~~~~
We have FOUR new stamp sets to share with you today.  These new sets are 20% off until July 3.  So once you finish the blog hop, head on over to the store and start shopping.  All of the new sets are available on cling mounted rubber or as a digital image.  

The sets are:


3 Wisemen 720   (digi version DIGI720M)
Christmas Goose 721   (digi version DIGI721B)
Reindeer 722   (digi version DIGI722J)
Tree Scene 723   (digi version DIGI723J)

For a chance to win one of these sets, please join us for the Mystery Designer Party being held on the SNS Blog  starting June 30, beginning at 9pm EST.  The winners will be announced on July 3 on the SNS blog and the SNS Facebook page. So hurry on over to the shoppe once you've checked out all the great projects from the designers.
