Default January 2013 VSD Challenge #1

Hi, it's Bridget here, kicking off our day of challenges to celebrate the release of the brand new SNSS sets for January!

Our first challenge is to make a CAS card based on the theme
Creature Comforts


We're talking any kind of animal or cute critter! And what about things that bring you comfort - that could be anything from a hot beverage, chocolate, a bubble bath, or a hug to deeper things like family, love, nature, or a Bible verse! It's really up to you, but it'll be fun to see what you come up with!

CAS Challenge:
Creature Comforts
Keyword: SNSJAN13VSD1

- You don't have to use a Sweet 'n Sassy image to play (but if you do, add one of our keywords, too!)
- You'll have until Wednesday, January 9th at midnight EST to play along in any of our January Release VSD challenges. One winner from the challenge players (all of the challenges lumped into one, so you get more chances for each challenge you enter) will win a $25 credit to Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!
- You are welcome to combine challenges, but you will only receive one entry per project.


Here's my sample card: Tweet Thanks
Here's the Challenge Gallery

This is SO SWEET Korin! Oh I can't wait until I can get my hands on this set! Hope it doesn't sell out before I can raise the funds (or that is restocks quickly!)

I bet a lot of people will think of their furry friends when it comes to "comfort", Korin!
Meredith, hope you feel better soon!

Thanks - me too! Been sick since Dec. 20th and had a bout of food poisoning not long before then. Was hoping 2013 would be a year of good health for me... maybe it just has a delayed start?

Oh yikes, Meredith. I sure hope you are getting on the up-swing now. I've missed seeing you around!

Yay, so glad to have some challenges to do! I'll try to play this afternoon or tomorrow.

Meridith, hope you feel better soon. I got sick on Christmas Eve and could hardly do anything at all until this past Tuesday. Now my DH is down with it. Whatever this is, it takes a long time to go away.

Be back here later.

Bridget your card is adorable. I love that little birdie.
