Hello Friend Turtle

Have you ever wanted to snatch up a grab bag, pay your money, and then dig in to see what you got? That's what I used to do as a youngster - it usually cost a quarter or so. Sometimes you got something really cool; other times, not so much.

Fast forward to adulthood. My adult form of grab bags is the Gerda Steiner Progressive Challenge... and the good part is, it is FREE! (Well, after the first month - but I've been doing this challenge so long that I've even forgotten what that first image cost. LOL!)

Obviously, you need to buy the image the first time you participate, but after that, if you participate in any given month, you get the next month's image free. You have no idea what it's going to be, but the "grab bag" - hmmmm... attached document arrives in your inbox at the beginning of the month and you rip into it (open it ever-so-carefully) and drool over the adorable image you get to use. Like the adorable little turtle with the butterfly on his nose. Yep! That's this month's image. (Oh, and for the record, I've never gotten a Gerda Steiner Progressive Challenge image that I didn't like.)

And GOOD NEWS! If you didn't participate last month and therefore need to buy the image to  play along this month, Gerda Steiner Designs is having a sale right now!!! 20% off! So rush over there and get the image and play along. (You might not want to move at a turtle's pace, since I have no idea how long the sale will last.)

Then once you've gotten the image, colored it up nice and purdy, and created a card (or something) with it... be sure to link it to the Gerda Steiner Progressive Challenge so you can get next month's grab bag in your inbox at the beginning of July. ;)

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
