Congratulations to thecardpixie for correctly guessing my favorite LSCs! Clues were given in the contest thread and in my gallery throughout the week! Great detective work!
We've never had a repeat week in the LSC. So in honor of the holiday season, this Friday, I am posting 3 repeat challenges. I have lots of favorites, but these are my all-time favorites!
Please link only new cards. Thanks!
A link to all the new cards for these challenges can be found here:
LSC36 - Snowmen without Blue
I love snowmen. I collect them and I love to stamp them. Have you noticed that most cards with snowmen use the color blue? This week's challenge is to stamp one or more snowmen onto a card, tag, or scrapbook page without using any shades of blue. It can be done! Don't have any snowman stamps? How about using circle punches or tags? Or square punches or tags... Who said snowmen must be round? There's a great square snowman sample in the original challenge.
snowman/snowmen plus any other stamps you may wish to add
any colors except shades of blue
any (just not blue!)

LSC40 - You've Been CASEd
Have you experienced this? You find this awesome card in the gallery with an image set you actually have, but you can't duplicate it because you don't have all the supplies that were used. Or maybe you found an idea for a card that requires a certain image, but you only have a similar image. If yes, this challenge is for you!
Find a card in your Favorites or in the Gallery that you would like to CASE. Make 2 or more substitutions.
In your description, include an explanation of the substitutions made AND please include the original artist's name and a link to the card you CASEd. If you have difficulty with the link, please include the original artist's name.
Please do not CASE Dirty Dozen designs. The DD gallery is for Fan Club members only. Thanks for your understanding!

LSC48 - Which one?
The inspiration for this challenge came from cmcmathey.
I saw her cards and immediately thought of how wonderful this is for new stampers with a limited supplies of stamps. Remember how long it took to collect enough to actually feel like you could make something? Let's help our new stamping friends. Here's what you'll need... along with the directions
one image set, 1-2 BGs, sentiment set optional
Cardstock & Ink:
one neutral and 2-3 colors
Make 2-4 cards using the SAME main image and color scheme. Things that can change to make each card unique are backgrounds, layouts, and accessories. The main idea is to get many different looks using one main image. It can also show the importance of backgrounds and layouts on cards... how it can really make a card great and/or how it can really change the look of an image for a totally new card.
Scan or take a picture of all the cards together and call it "Which one?" In the comments section, you may want to ask viewers to tell you which one is their fave. Have fun stamping!
