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.  
The 31 Days of Halloween linky is open all month for your Halloween and Fall inspired makes, but we like to add in an extra challenge for those of you who are not getting your spook on.
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 want to see your stamped anythings featuring Cats.
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. 

Lost Coast Designs is proud to be one of the  sponsors of the Christmas Cat Lovers Challenge over on the Christmas Kickstart Challenge blog.  If you are visiting from the Christmas Cat Lovers Challenge welcome.  If you don't know about it and your card features a Christmas Cat then hop over to the Christmas Kickstart Challenge for extra chances to win.  Must be a card, must have a cat, must be Christmas.
 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 can't link to more than one of our challenges with the same project so if you enter a card in this linky you can't enter in the 31 Days of Halloween linky as well. 

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

Lost Coast Designs/Carmen's Veranda
10+ Entries = one randomly picked winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to spend at

and all winners get our snazzy Challenge Winner's Badge to proudly display on their blogs!

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.

Now it's your turn.  Are you up for the challenge?  We can't wait to see your projects!
