Challenge 174 | Dig It!

It's our first challenge of 2022 and we have a treat for you!  Every time we have a color challenge this year, we will be using colors from a specific decade.  We have chosen the 50's to kick the year off!  Here's how it will work - we will list five popular colors from the 50's and you have to use three of the five colors on your card (plus one old stamp, of course)!  This should be fun so be sure to make a card and join us!

We are also thrilled to announce new Design Team Member - Heather Heroldt!  Heather has been a huge supporter of this challenge over the years and we are so happy that she joined our team!

Remember to use a stamp older than a year and you must include the age (or approximate age) of the stamp in your blog post. After all – we want to give these old stamps some love!

Are you on Facebook?  If you share our challenge on your Facebook page, we will happily share your post!

Be sure to play along with us! This challenge ends January 28, 2022.
