Memory Box Challenge #40- Keep Cool and Carry On (Winter Cards)

Challenge icons

Greetings friends.  It is time to introduce another Memory Box challenge. We hope you will play along with the theme through the end of the month.  You will even have the chance to win prizes!  Thank you so much to everyone who played along with us for our Surf and Turf challenge.  There were so many fun images for Summer!

The winner of the blog badge was LucieG from the LucieG Cards blog.  We loved her elegant take on the theme:


The random winner drawn from all the entries was Katwondoo from the Les Creations de Katwondoo blog.

Please contact me at [email protected] to claim your prize.

Want to play along in this month's challenge?  The rules are simple - just create a project following the theme, use at least one Memory Box stamp or die on your project and link your entry to this blog post.  You can make a card, a scrapbook page, a home decor item, etc..  To encourage participants with various levels of stamping experience, one entry will be selected at random to win a prize. Enter as many times as you want, but your name will only be entered once into the random prize drawing.   In addition, the design team will select their favorite entry to  be highlighted on the Outside the Box blog and that designer will receive our winner badge to proudly display on their blog. 

You don't have to have a blog in order to participate.   You can upload your project to any online gallery and link it to this post.   In fairness to other players, we reserve the right to remove entries that do not use at least one Memory Box product.  You are also welcome to link your design to other challenges.  Feel free to grab our badge to post on your blog post or side bar.


Is anyone else tired of all the heat?  Are you ready for a cooler breeze?  How about a winter breeze?  In order to celebrate the latest Memory Box release, which is loaded with winter items, this month's theme is all about Winter...snow, snowmen, snowflakes, winter scenes, etc.  You don't have to use the latest release in your entry, but you do have a chance to win part of the new release as part of this month's random draw for participants.   We can't wait to see your take on the challenge.   Don't forget to include at least one Memory Box product for your entry.

Here are a few ideas from the design team to help get you started:
