Pile It On #30 - Anything Goes!

Many thanks to everyone who entered challenge and DT call. We had seven fabulous entries, but we can only take 3 at this time. After much discussion, here are the newest members of the Pile It On team:

We'd like to invite the other contenders to join us as Guest Designers for our December month-long challenge:


Now on to the usual crafty business:
We're making it especially easy for you to Pile It On this week: our theme is Anything Goes!


We're sponsored by Hambo Stamps. Because this is an Anything Goes challenge, we won't be having a Top 3 for this challenge, but one lucky winner will receive 5 Hambo digis!
Hambo Stamps, founded in 2002, is the offspring of husband/wife team Tim & Monica Hunter of Richmond, Virginia. Tim is the artist of all of the whimsical rubber & clear stamps, as well as all of the designs in Hambo's digital stamp line. While Tim draws the images, Monica is responsible for sentiments & sayings, including her own Fractured Funnies™ & Limerinks™  lines. With two equally-goofy creators, the stamps don't stand a chance at being traditional or sappy! You can also join them for weekly challenges and inspiration at the Hambo Hoedown.

We're being joined by some members of the Hambo Stamps Design Team:

Pile It On #28 - Water + DT Call

Welcome to a new challenge at Pile It On! This week we're celebrating the fact that 2013 is the International Year of Water Cooperation. So let's see your Water-themed creations. Feel free to interpret this however you like, as long as something on your projects evokes a Water theme.

We're also having a DT Call this week, so if you'd like to join our team please add "DT" after your entry (and be sure to include your primary email address). We'll announce the challenge winners next Wednesday (July 24), and the DT picks the following Sunday (July 28).

PIO DT Info:
  1. The PIO Team is looking for crafting bloggers of all kinds! You can do cards, LOs, altered items, paper crafts, home decor, digital, hybrid, you name it. We're all about having fun, being inspired, and supporting the crafting community.
  2. The mission of Pile It On! is to incorporate many challenges into one project. Along with your project, you are required to submit a list of challenges that you will be entering your project into (following the rules of each specific challenge blog).
  3. The Design Team term will be for 3 months (possibly longer!) and you will be required to design EVERY OTHER week. Projects & challenge lists are due on the PIO DT blog by 6PM CST Saturday, and due on your blog at 7AM CST Sunday (on your week). Members comment and vote on entries EVERY WEEK by 6PM CST Wednesday.
  4. We are usually sponsored by Digi Stamp companies, so you must be able to print digital images. On these weeks, you will receive 1 digital stamp from the sponsor. You will never be required to purchase anything!
  5. You must join the Yahoo group, which is where we will communicate as a group and where you will find the weekly challenges.
  6. That's it! Join this week's "Water" challenge and add "DT" to your name when linking up.
