Happy Fall ya’ll! Today here at “The House” we’re kicking off a new month of challenges with one of our great Designer’s Choice Challenges. This time around RI Rock Star, Patti J. Gilliam is hosting and challenging you all to create a card with a “Count your Blessings” theme. This can include cards for Thanksgiving, Thanks, Thankful, Blessings, etc.
Here is the wonderful card that Patti created to get everyone started.

So a few days ago Patti shared her creation with her fellow Rock Stars and asked them all to stamp up a “Count your Blessings” themed card. Check out all the lovely creations they came up with to inspire you this week!

And now it’s your turn. Here are all the details…
1. Stamp up a “Count Your Blessings” themed card. And remember, your creation does not have to be made with Repeat Impressions stamps, but if you would like to include our designs we would reeeally love to see them! 😀 Plus, there’s an added bonus… you will get an additional entry in our random.org drawing for using our stamps in your submissions!
2. Post your DCC creation on your blog or online gallery and be sure to reference Repeat Impressions DCC104 ~ Count Your Blessings. Then link it here with the inlinkz widget below. (Please provide a direct link to your post, not the entire blog.)
3. Submissions will be accepted until Tuesday, October 31st at 5PM EST.
4. On October 11th we will introduce a new challenge to play along with and after all our October challenges wrap up we’ll announce our winner for the month the first week in November. One lucky person will win a $25 Repeat Impressions Gift Certificate!
A few of you have taken the time to comment to let us know that you like the extended submission deadlines so we’ll keep it going. That means this month the deadline for submissions for ALL our challenges will be October 31st. So for example… starting with today’s Designer’s Choice Challenge you’ll have the entire month to create and upload your card. Then when we introduce our next new challenge next week you’ll have three weeks to submit for that one, two weeks for the following challenge, and the usual one week to submit the last challenge of the month. With a little less of a time crunch we hope you’ll find that you have more opportunity to play along with more of our challenges.
Today we’re also announcing the winner of our September challenges. A big thank you to all of you who participated. We loved checking out all your creations and really appreciated all your kind comments too! As usual, we let random.org select the lucky recipient of our $25 Gift Certificate. So without further ado… this time that person is… Esther! Congratulations, Esther and happy shopping! Please leave a comment on this post and I will contact you with your certificate info.
Thanks so much for dropping by today. We hope you’ve found lots to inspire you and look forward to seeing your challenge card linked here very soon. And please be sure to stop by again on Monday when RI Rock Star, Cheri Weston will be hosting and sharing her Project of the Week with you.
Until then… happy stamping!
