Frequency of Challenges

Dear fellow design team members and blog members,

Thank you so much for your participation in our blog challenges! We have been having a blast in creating and seeing what you create!

This past week had brought much frustration to us with our website going down. I wrote a comment on the entry for Challenge #10 that we will be extending this challenge for a two week period. You have until Sunday, Sept. 6th to complete your entry for Challenge 10! While the reasoning behind this is clear - We have opted to continue to make our challenges run TWO weeks rather than just one week. That way.. all of us have more time and energy to create and hopefully pick up a few more participants along the way!

We have noticed and appreciated the people that participate each week :) We love that you are here and that you are participating. We want to continue these fun challenges at Peachy Keen Stamps! We hope that you will tell your friends about us and invite them to join in on the fun!

Have a wonderful weekend!!
