Yah!!! The Pixel Gypsy challenges are back!!!!

We at PGD decided that the structure we used in the first few months of this year was a good start - but we realized that you were competing against each other, and we don't think that fosters community. Therefore, we've switched to a points system that accumulates as you go, and the points roll over from month to month. If you decide not to trade them in this month, don't. Create more challenge LOs and trade them in next month, or the month after - it's on your time.
Now, when you create a LO for a challenge, it needs to include at least one Pixel Gypsy Designs product, and it must be posted in the PGD gallery. The product can be something you paid for or something from the Free Treats section, but you need to mention it in your comments when posting in order to get credit.
Each LO created by the end of the month, posted in the gallery, and linked in the challenge thread will earn a point. Every few weeks, Deb will post an update on points earned. At the end of the month, you can trade your points in as follows, or roll them over to the next month:
5 points can be redeemed for a 35% off coupon (off a single order)
10 points = 45% off coupon (off a single order)
15 points = 50% off coupon (off a single order)
20 points = $10 gift cert35 points = $20 gift cert
The challenges will be about 10 per month, still Tuesdays and Fridays in the forums and two others posted randomly during the month. Challenges will be at roughly the same time every month, so people who only like certain types can take note.

1st Tuesday - Recipe
1st Friday - Photography
2nd Tuesday - Wild Card (something that doesn't fit the others)
2nd Friday - Scraplift
3rd Tuesday - Technique/hybrid
3rd Friday - Journaling
4th Tuesday - Wild Card
4th Friday - Font
This month, the Wild Cards are fun! I will be hosting an ad-inspired challenge on June 9th, and Laura will be nudging you to use a particular color on the 23rd.
LOs should be linked up to the corresponding challenge here.
And the official rules are posted here.
Hope you'll join us in the fun! :)
