CHA Digi Relay Rules!!!

Hmm wonder why I thought today was Monday. Ok so... it's very important that I explain the rules for next week's Digi relay challenge. It's very important that everyone understands how this works. We have a FUN contest planned while we're away at CHA for you guys until we can come back and share all the fun details of our trip!  Til then, we dont' want to leave you hanging, and really appreciate your show of support for TGF as we embark into uncharted (and like, totally HUGE) territory!!!

Starting on SUNDAY, JANUARY 24th....we bring you the "TGF CHA RELAY" Contest in which you can win up to 5 free digis!

TGF CHA RELAY RULES


Here's how it works:
  • Beginning on Sunday, January 24th at Midnight CST, we will post a FREE digi for everyone to create with.  EVERYONE will get the digi on Sunday.  You will have until Monday night, Jan. 25th at 6:00pm CST to upload your card to the TGF Galleria. 
  • Participants MUST leave a comment with their email address after their card/project is uploaded to the TGF Galleria.   Please leave your EMAIL ADDRESS within the blog comment section so that we know to send you the next digi.  DO NOT email TGF or Jessica as we will not be accessing our email very often during CHA, sorry!   Our very own Critter Crew DT member Mercy has graciously offered to help send the digis while we are away.
  •  NOW THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT - ONLY partcipants who complete their entries by Monday night 6:00pm CST will be eligible for the NEXT FREE DIGI, which will be sent via EMAIL to ALL who participate make the deadline. Make sure your email and link to your creation is in the comment section of the blog.
  • YOU must meet the deadline every evening to qualify for the next digi the following day. So for instance, if you miss one deadline, you will be disqualified and will not get the following day digi.
  • ANY participant who completes the Monday relay will move onto Tuesday.  On Monday's blog post, a watermarked version of the next FREE DIGI for TUESDAY will be posted along with rules for anyone who moved onto round two, and they will again have until 6pm CST on TUESDAY to upload to the Galleria, and leave their comment w/ their email address to be eligible for Wednesday's Relay race.
  • You could get up to FIVE exclusive digis by entering our Relay Race, isn't that exciting?   What's more, there will be a SIXTH exclusive digi given away to everyone who completes ALL FIVE parts of next week's RELAY!
Phew, so what do you guys think? Is it confusing or do you get the jest of it? In summary, everyone will get a free digi on Sunday. Turn your creation in by 6:00pm cst the following day, post in gallery with link and email in the comments section. If you make the deadline, you'll get the next digi. Make card, post link and email by deadline, get next digi, and so forth.

The Relay officially starts on Sunday so you HAVE to start playing when it starts in order to fully participate in the game. You will not be able to come in mid-week and start playing. 

Ok so now is time for any questions... oh BTW HG Rain Rain digi is in the store now.

And thanks for putting Rain up for sale! Yay!

Do we get any clues beforehand? Will there be Anya, Critter, Sprout etc. digis or just Critters? I don't have a printer at home so might not be able to participate. Need to figure out the time difference factor first. The relay sounds so much fun.

Kris said...

Sounds like next week will be a whole lotta FUN!! so exciting! hopefully i'll be able to play all the way through.... =D

Sammi said...

oooh... great!! this sounds like a lot of fun! Can't wait to see the digis. Thanks for organising a fun week for us whilst we'll be missing you off at CHA!

Sheng said...

Sounds fun!! Here are my questions:

1. exactly which gallery do we upload to? there are so many.

2. Do we post our projects on our blog then leave the link along with our email address in the comments section of the blog?

3. can we create whatever we want with the given digi or do you guys have themes set up?

Have fun at CHA.

xoxo :)

Ruthie said...

Emma said...

Marisa said...

Wow, this sounds like a lot of fun, and free digis to boot!

KJ said...

Wow! what a wonderful prize :D
Just 2 questions
1. Are totally digi cards/layouts acceptable? I'm unable to papercraft at the moment & would hate to miss out :(
2. Do I have to have a blog? I have a photobucket account but theres not enough hours in the day for me to start/maintain a blog!

Kristy - have you tried heat embossing straight from the printer? I managed to do this a couple of times but you have to be really quick & have the EP ready as soon as the image is printed. I've never tried it with watercolour paper though.
Take care x

Beckie said...

What a fab idea, despite working on a Monday and Tuesday I am going to have a go at this.

Just one question.......what's the time difference between UK GMT and CST?

crafty amy said...

This sounds like a lot of fun I hope I manage to get them made as will have to try and fit it around work on the Sunday but I would love to add some more TGF digi's to my collection so will pull out all the stops :D
Thank you all so much for the chance to play like this you are so generous.

Hugs

Amy xx

I love the Rain digi - hope the princess one makes it to the store, too. ")

Robin McK said...

That is a really fantastic idea! Sounds like a lot of fun and a little bit of stress : )
I will try my hardest!!!

Robin McK said...

Oh, I forgot to ask - is it only posted at midnight the first night?
Do we have to wait from 6pm to midnight every day to receive the email with the next digi? Just wondering, because I may not be able to have a go due to work...

Tanya said...

This sounds like a lot of fun! I'll hae to work around work but I'm going to do my best!

One question, can we create whatever we want or do we have specific things we have to do?

Stephanie said...

I'm in! Thanks for coming up with such an awesome idea to keep us all entertained while you're away! (We'll miss you!)

Sonya said...

Yeah TGF! This sounds like the most exciteing conetest! This even better that a blog hop. I cannot wait to see the wonderful and awesome digi's you have in store for us for this incredible contest. The hardest part for me will be putting all else aside to make sure I am able to complete my card and get it in on time. Come **** or high water I must so I can continue to move on and complete the contest! I do have one question. Last week was the 1st time I was trying to create a card to enter. I did not finish the card until Monday ao needless to say I did not get it send in. So my queastion is I have NO idea exactly how to submit my project? I see that you give a link. Do I enter that like in the go bar and does it take me directly to a download page? I really am so new to this whole world of blogging and downloading/uploading etc. Thank you for you help. Have load of fun at the CHA and thank you so much for think of us and planning such a splendid contest for us while the CHA is going on. TGF is totally fabulous!
