A Challenge Year in Review


Helloooooo, friends, fans and adorable oddballs! (Takes one to know one, did you say?)  It's Bibi here today (in case you hadn't already guessed). As you may have heard, this month we celebrate the 1st anniversary of our challenges! That's right! One whole year already!

And what a fabulous year it was been. It has been such FUN seeing all the entries each month, and I've learned so much, been so inspired, and made some new friends, too.

I've been extremely lucky with my DesignTeam who has made such good sample makes for the challenges, and DT Katy who has organized it all. You're the besties!

I don't think this blog would have been such a fun and busy place, had it not been for our challenges. I know that many of you regular readers heard about this blog and Rubber Dance for the first time when you joined our challenges, or saw someone else's entry and followed their link back here. Thanks for staying with us! :-)

I have browsed through all of our previous 12 challenges and picked out a few entries and some makes by the DT.  I love the big variety! The only thing they have in common is that they've made with Rubber Dance stamps. Well, that and the goes-without-saying fact that they've been made by some very lovely people! Oh, and myself....

OK! Let's start at the very beginning and work our way through the year that has passed:

And last, but certainly not least, this beautiful tag by Dagny in Denmark. I thought this one was a perfect end of my post today because the text on this tag is so true and all you lovely people do exactly that (more often than you realize ...) when you post on your blogs or leave kind words to someone in blogland. 


So beautiful, so true.

Our current challenge is right here and runs all throughout September.
 Come join us, why dontcha? You don't have to use stamps from Rubber Dance to join in.


Till next time, be good and... go light a candle, so to speak.

 XOX,
Bibi

  2. What a year! I have joined the challenge every single month since the start and I believe I found it by visiting Twinkletoes (http://twinkletoes2day.blogspot.co.uk) as we both were entering a year long challenge. So glad I did... love the Rubber Dance stamps, perfect for my style, and the blog is very inspirational thank to the lovely DT. So pat on the back for Bibi, keep on blogging and crafting!

  10. Happy Anniversary! A colorful and wonderfully creative collection of projects. I came to your blog through the Unruly Paper Arts blog. I won Rubber Dance Art Stamps in their March challenge. It's so much fun to play with the monthly challenges here and to see how others interpret the same themes and color palettes.
