Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!
Hello Portal Peeps.  It's time for our new Challenge.
Our challenges are now fortnightly!  A new challenge starting the 1st and the 15th of every month, with chances to win Lost Coast dollars. We will be announcing winners on the 5th of the month, so do pop back and see who wowed the team and gets our snazzy blog badge and the coveted Lost Coast dollars.

Now for our new Challenge!



We are going to use the last weeks of September to celebrate men.  
Please include men or male themed images on your stamped anything.
Real rubber or clear stamping and the theme must be the focus of your project.  A small stamped sentiment in a sea of die cuts or digi images will not qualify to win the prize and you may be deleted!!!!  Bwahahhaaahaha.

Please remember we do have some Challenge Rules to follow so look them over to ensure your entries qualify to win this month's prize!

You are welcome to play in our Challenges using rubber stamp images from any company but if you use any of our Lost Coast Designs or Carmen's Veranda stamps...we love it when you do...then your entry counts as two which doubles your chances of winning in our random prize drawing.


To ensure you all have a fabulous time playing in our Challenges this is how our Prize system works!
The more entries the better the Prize so tell all your friends to join the fun too!

1 - 4 Entries = one winner chosen by the team is awarded our Challenge Winner's Badge

If you don't have a blog then no prob, you can still play in our challenges by sharing your projects from public photo sharing sites which includes our Facebook Company Pages for Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda.  Please include our Challenge info and the link back to our challenge in your photo's description!  As long as the privacy setting for your photo is public you're good to go.  See, it's so easy to join the fun!  FYI, you can't link up projects shared in closed Facebook groups!

Another excellent challenge theme! Great cards for inspiration. Now off to see if I actually have a single male image, Jo x

Susan Renshaw said...

Off the top of my head, I don't think I have any male images either. This will be a challenge! But a good theme to follow the last one - oh maybe the Mayan ones...

Can just make it masculine if you don't have an actual bloke. Hugz

ionabunny said...

The Mayans would be perfect, but any masculine themed stamps will be OK for this one. Hugz

Suzanne H said...

This is a good theme to follow the last one, Susan. I was able to continue my Wizard of Oz theme on the suggestion of Becca Yahrling to make a pocket letter. Only 3 more to go. So next month's theme should be Munchkins, Flying Monkeys and the Emerald City because that's what I have left. :) :) LOL
