January Challenge

Create a card or paper-craft project using any Beccy's Place image, upload a photo of it to your blog or other hosted site, and submit a direct link below. The challenge runs from now until midnight on the 31st of January 2020 (AEST).

To keep things interesting, I'll be adding an additional optional element to the monthly challenges. To kick the year off, we're going to focus on keeping things local to where you live. Think local foods, foliage, celebrations, etc.  As always, keep in mind that the additional challenge is just an optional extra!


  • Entries that don't meet the conditions will be deleted from the challenge.
  • Your project must be created during the month of January 2020 and entered into the challenge during the active challenge period. Due to an automated system, late entries cannot be accepted.
  • Each month I will include a re-mastered digital image from my library of freebies as well as a bonus challenge, such as a card sketch, bingo grid, etc. You DO NOT have to use the image or bonus challenge on your project, but you MUST use a Beccy's Place image, either free or purchased, to be eligible for entry.
  • You can enter as many times as you like and you can submit your card to any other challenge you wish.
  • At the end of the month three winners will be chosen to receive a $20.00AU store credit for any digital stamps at Beccy's Place. To redeem the store credit, winners must have a Beccy's Place customer account. (Please note, you do not need an account to enter the challenge. It is acceptable to create an account in the event that you win. Accounts can be closed at any time.)
  • Store credit won during any Beccy's Place challenge is only redeemable for digital stamps.
  • Entries can be uploaded to the challenge from any hosted site including blogs, online galleries, Google photos, etc. If you do not have access to a hosted site, please feel free to email your photos to me and I will add them from the Beccy's Place Guest blog.
  • Beccy's Place designers may enter the monthly challenge but are not eligible to win prizes.

This image is gorgeous, Beccy, thank you so much! Thank you for a new challenge for a new year! I am planning to be back to join in. P.S. When I downloaded your image I found out I have been misspelling fuchsia for many years, so thank you!

Suze said...

Thank you for the image. I grew up with heaps of fuchsia in our garden in lots of different colours. I'm going to enjoy colouring this image as it brings back memories of my childhood.

Dorothy S said...

Happy New Year!
Gorgeous image, Beccy. Like Suze, I remember the fuchsia from my childhood - my mother always had a large plant in our home.
By the way, Beccy, are you affected by the terrible fires?

Beccy said...

Hi Dorothy. My son's high school was evacuated in late November due to a fire, but so far that's the worst of it for us. We've had all the smoke haze from the terrible infernos burning around the country, but even that has subsided over the past week.
It's been an unprecedented start to the bush-fire season... I have never seen it like this before. Last I heard, over 15 million acres have burned and at least 18 people have been killed, not to mention all the little animals. We're all desperately hoping for some rain if for nothing else than to give our fire-fighters a rest.
Thank you for asking Dorothy, I appreciate it.

Thank you, Beccy! Thank you for the pretty Fuschias images. Your new quarterly releases are WONDERFUL! Eclectic and something for everyone! I'm sorry to hear about the hardships of Australia with the lack of rain and intense fire conditions. I hope the environment will recover sufficiently to allow the wildlife to return. The loss of life is the hardest to take during fire season (ours begins in a month or two) but is nothing like yours. Let's hope the conditions abate soon. Wishing you a healthy and prosperous 2020. hugs, de

Beccy said...

Thanks Donna. Australia is a harsh, but beautiful country.
All the best for a lovely New Year to you too.

Mandy said...

It is easily done..... such a hard spelling for a pretty flower :)

Suzanne H said...

Thanks so much for the freebie! Take care.

Verna Angerhofer said...

I love the fuchsia images and hope to make a card and enter your challenge too. I have lots of stamps you designed from S&S which are like the ones you show so I was wondering if they could be used for entries as well or do they have to be only digital?

Beccy said...

Hi Verna,
You're very welcome to use any of the images I designed, including the rubber stamp versions from SNS... no worries at all.

Donna said...

Thanks for the lovely flower image Beccy/ They are my favorite!
