You can see the HIMCR schedule of challenges and guidelines HERE!  Please be sure and follow the few easy guidelines so your creation will get entered into the weekly giveaway!!!

Just a few guidelines:

1.  The current weekly challenge linky will be up until at least Friday night at midnight PDT.  Be sure and link your creation back to your actual post and not just your blog home page.  If we can't find your entry then we can't leave you some love!

2.  When posting your creation on your blog or online gallery please mention the HIMCR challenge and link it back to this challenge post.  This helps us to spread the word and the FUN!

3.  Please create something new for the current challenge and NOT use something you've made previously. No back linking!  However, you can combine a HIMCR challenge with other challenges. It is always fun to complete more than one challenge at a time!

4.  NEW GUIDELINE!  Please limit your entries to a maximum of 3entries each week.  I'm sorry but more than that will be deleted.
