    You DID forget to mention the cash vouchers very generously offered as prizes every month by JADERAIL. I think he might be getting tired of reminding us!

    Besides, the Chinese New Year is usually heralded with firecrackers. Do you really want to give Bob that much temptation? ;-)

    Wow, pretty quick on the draw (get it?) for someone hung over!

    I thought maybe that was Charlie Chan up there, but no mustache, so it's not him. Can't tell what that group is at the bottom. Almost thought Gilligan's Island, but there are too many of them.

    ... NOTICE ...

    This month marks the 7th anniversary of the freebie challenge here in the forums. As a way of showing you all my personal appreciation for all the folks who have participated, entered and shared their artwork and fun with us, I have gotten with my friends at Daz and, with the permission of some very nice folks there, they have granted my wish to give something back to you all.

    So...for this anniversary month only, They will be DOUBLING THE WINNERS GC AMOUNTS! That's right, you will get twice the amount we usually give to the three top winners in store GCs. So it will go as follows:

    1st place will get $30.00 GC.
    2nd place will get $24.00 GC.
    3rd place will get $16.00 GC.

    This will be for this month only, so take advantage of this folks and enter the challenge this month.

    I want to thank all who have entered in the past 6 years, and to all our regulars who help have so much fun each month here in the challenge. Also to my ETOs Jeeperz, Dollygirl and Chohole. Also to my ex-ETO Kendall and Alexa Sears for keeping the gallery going. (The offer to rejoin the ETO staff remains open to you Kendall if you decide at any time in the future.)

    And a very special thanks goes to our beloved BWSman, who passed away this last June 22, 2013. He gave so much of himself so we could all be happy and have fun, as well as being my cheif ETO. May he R.I.P.

    So you can update the opening post Kismet and list these amounts for this month.

    Good luck to all who enter, and thanks for joining us here.
