We welcome you to create any type of project that you would like to create as long as your project fits into the challenge theme. Your project must be new and never previously posted.  Anything posted before the start of the challenge will be disqualified.  Sorry to do this, but we want to make it fair to everyone playing along.

You can enter up to 3 times as long as each entry is a new project.   You can and are even encouraged to combine your entry with as many other challenges as you would like to combine it with. 

You can use any image from any company that you would like.  If you have an image from the week's sponsors we would love to see it. But it is not a requirement to enter our challenge.

Make sure when entering your project you mention our challenge in your post with a link back to Open-Minded Crafting Fun Challenges.  Please also link back to your project and not your entire blog.

Anyone is welcome to enter and we love when kids play along. If you are under the age of 16, please add your age beside your name so we will know you have entered. 

We ask that the winner of the challenge contact us by 9:00 AM Eastern Standard Time by the end of the current challenge. Any unclaimed prizes will be redrawn and announced with the new challenge.

We reserve the right to remove any entries that do not follow the rules.

Most of all HAVE FUN!
