FFC12 - Trigger Challenge...

Hello Festive Friday players!

It's already time for a new challenge, can you believe it? The year is flying by, and we've officially hit (passed, in fact) the halfway mark to Christmas. Don't you love the feeling of having a stash prepared already?

Since it's the halfway mark, we wanted to talk prizes... do you mind? *wink*

If you've been playing for awhile, you might already be aware that we are, in fact, playing for a Grand Prize. We mentioned earlier in the year that it was important that you keep track of the projects you've created throughout the year, so that you can qualify for our Grand Prize - a $60 gift certificate to an online retailer*! We will ask to see these projects, as in order to qualify for this one, you'll need to have played with the majority of our challenges. We will draw a random winner from the final challenge - more details to come!

Here's some fun news... we are loving all of the enthusiasm, and so are excited to see everyone building their Christmas card stash, so we decided to offer *another* prize! This one will also be a random draw, for a $20 gift certificate to an online retailer*, and the great part is, if you didn't manage to play as much as you might have liked, or you didn't find us before now, you can still qualify!

How does all that sound?

Alright, let's get to this week's challenge.

It's time for a Trigger Challenge, which means we want to see how this particular word jumps your creativity.  You don't have to use the actual word in your project, you just have to share how it inspired you!

And here are the amazing creations from our Design Team members this week:


This week, we're excited to be joined by the talented Veronica Zalis from So Many Stamps, So Little Time.

My name is Veronica Zalis and I am getting ready to move to Benton, Ark. I am a stay-at-home mom of two beautiful little boys. I have been married to my best friend and biggest cheerleader for almost 10 years. I was invited to a neighborhood card swap in Texas in 2003, and I have been a cardmaker ever since. I have been published in print magazines over 75 times. I have made many wonderful crafty friends along the way and look forward to making many more!

Here is Veronica's *beautiful* card:

Now that you've seen what we did with the challenge, it's your turn! Create any holiday themed project based on the 'snow' trigger and link us up below! You can combine our challenge with your other favourite challenges, and enter as many times as you like. This challenge will run until July 17, 2013 at 11:55PST. 

Oh, one more thing... since we're talking prizes this week, why not offer one up? Geri has so generously offered not one, not two, but THREE giveaways for our players this week!

Three lucky players, drawn randomly from this challenge will each win a little packet of these adorable little houses from Prima! You'll notice Geri altered and used one on her beautiful card above!

Good luck!
