Letter Hunt: Clue #6--The Final Clue...being released now


It is time for the release of clue #6, the final clue of our letter hunt!

Each day over the last six days you have been given the chance to work through clues revealing six different letters:

_____     _____    _____     _____     _____     _____  


The first clue was released on this challenge blog on January 16th. If you missed the first stop, please go HERE and start from the beginning to ensure that you understand how to play along and get all the clues you will need to participate. Then, each day from January 17th to January 20th, clues were released on each of our four current full time DT members' blogs. The final clue to help you figure out what the word is, can be found below:

Clue #6

  1. Go to the Scribbles Designs Store: http://buyscribblesdesigns.blogspot.ca
  2. In the labels section which you will find on the right hand of the page in the sidebar, click on Penguins.
  3. Scroll through all the penguin images until you find the fun image that I used on all the sneak peek frames (see below).
  4. Once you have found the correct image in the store (below the watermarked image and 'buy' button), you will see, "Letter For January 21st:", along with the actual letter which is in block style and has a snowflake background. 
  5. Make note of the letter that you see and keep track of it.
  6. This is the last of your six letters.
Thanks so much to Suze for colouring the image used on all the sneak peek frames. I've included it on its own below so you know what image to look for in the store:


Don't forget, when going through the store, you need to keep scrolling down to the bottom and clicking on 'Older Post' in order to ensure that you see all images within the penguin section.

Now that you have gathered each of the six letters, you'll need to UNSCRAMBLE them in order to figure out the word. When you think that you have deciphered it, please leave a comment on this post letting me know what you think the word is. I'll be leaving comment moderation on this post to ensure that it is fair for everyone.


Prizes!!!


What is hunt without prizes?!  Everyone who gets the word correct will have a chance to win ONE of the following:
The winner will be chosen randomly from among all correctly answered entries. 

Additionally, everyone who participates by submitting a guess AND leaving a comment on every single blog participating in the Letter Hunt (total of six comments--two here on the challenge blog and four on DT Member's posts. All links to direct posts are below), will receive #206 Valentine Brrr-loon.
This is a bonus simply for playing along. Seems like pretty good incentive for joining in, doesn't it?!  Well, I hope that you agree and have joined us or will decide to to join in this special event to help celebrate our 7th birthday!

Birthday Event #2: Letter Hunt


Hello everyone! Yesterday we embarked on our month long birthday celebration by launching our regular monthly challenge. There are some cool extra prizes including a one-of-a-kind bag! Click HERE or scroll back one post to check out all the details for our current challenge.

Today, I was wondering if you would like to embark on a little adventure with us over here at Scribble Designs? Up for some amusement and the opportunity to earn some goodies along the way?! Well if your answer is 'YES', then keep reading...

It has been an amazing seven years and what better way to celebrate than to have a little fun. That is why, each day over the next six days you are going to have the chance to work through clues that will reveal six different letters. Each of these letters will come together to form a word that you need to figure out:

_____     _____    _____     _____     _____     _____  


Clues will be released here on the challenge blog and also on each of the participating DT members' blogs to help you figure out what the word is. You can see the full line up below.

When you receive a clue, you must go to the store and figure out what letter it is we are looking for.  We won't be giving you the letters in the correct order so you'll need to unscramble all the letters you've collected over the six days in order to figure out the word. On the last day of the letter hunt event, you'll have the opportunity to leave a comment letting us know what you think the word is. I'll be leaving comment moderation on that post to ensure that it is fair for everyone.

You will be provided with a visual clue at each stop along the way, whether here or on a DT member's blog, to make sure you find the correct image in the store.

Today though, I'm going to walk you through the entire process, which will give you your first letter.
  1. Go to the Scribbles Designs Store: http://buyscribblesdesigns.blogspot.ca
  2. In the labels section which you will find on the right hand of the page in the sidebar, click on Penguins. This will bring up all Sandy's fabulous penguin related images.
  3. Scroll through all the penguin images until you find the image that was used for our 7th birthday banner (shown at the top of this post) and also on our special 7th birthday badge (which can be found at the top of the right sidebar). Big thanks to Diane Louise for colouring up the image for our badge and banner!
  4. Once you have found the correct image in the store (below the image and 'buy' button), you will see, "Letter For January 16th:", along with the actual letter which is in block style and has a snowflake background. 
  5. Make note of the letter that you see and keep track of it.
  6. This is the first of your six letters.
Don't forget, when going through the store, you need to keep scrolling down to the bottom and clicking on 'Older Post' in order to ensure that you see all images within the penguin section.

Now to make sure that you did it correctly you should have found the image:

#203 Brrr My Valentine
Underneath the image and 'buy' button you should have found the following letter:
 

You now have one of the six letters filled in. So get ready to continue in our letter hunt! You will have until 8:59 p.m., PST, on Friday, January 31st, to complete the letter hunt and submit your answers. We want to make sure that as many of our readers as possible have the chance to participate in Birthday Event #2.


Prizes!!!


What is hunt without prizes?!  Everyone who gets the word correct will have a chance to win ONE of the following:
The winner will be chosen randomly from among all correctly answered entries. 
Additionally, everyone who participates by submitting a guess AND leaving a comment on every single blog participating in the Letter Hunt (total of six comments), will receive #206 Valentine Brrr-loon.

This is a bonus simply for playing along. Seems like pretty good incentive for joining in, doesn't it?!  Well, I hope that you agree and decide to join us over the course of the next six days during this special event to help celebrate our 7th birthday!


Get ready to find clue #2...


In order to get the second clue, you will need to go to NICK's Blog,  http://nicksscrapshack.blogspot.com, tomorrow on January 17th, 4:00 p.m., PST (7:00 p.m. EST). I'll be posting a reminder on the main blog tomorrow at that same time so that you don't forget.

If you happen to get lost along the way you can find the complete line up below. All clues will be released at 4:00 p.m., PST, on their respective days.

Letter Hunt Release Schedule:

Scribbles Designs is SEVEN!!! Come join our celebration!!!


Scribbles Designs is celebrating its 7th birthday this month! 
 On January 15, 2013, we had our very first challenge.
Seven years later we're still thriving!

We continue to have two separate teams--a full time team and a part time team.
Our full time team has a total of six members!
While I (Lisa) have been beside Sandy's side since the beginning, 
Nick came on just four months later in May of 2013,
and Suze started the following year in Jan. 2014. 
Pat joined us in April of 2016 after being a guest for a three month term.
Helen joined in Jan. of 2018 and Petra came aboard in Jan. of 2019! 

In March 2018 we started a part time team of one with Julie who has just
 recently stepped down permanently after a leave of absence. Please join us in 
wishing Julie all the best as she continues her journey to full health!

Diane Louise, a full time member from March '16-Jan. '19, stepped down
from the full time team and joined the part time team last January,
which is also when Janice, a former guest designer,
become part of the Inspiration team.

Most recently we have acquired one new person--
  Carol became a part time member this past December.

We continue to have our Monthly Challenges
featuring projects from our full time members, 
as well as our Monthly Inspiration Posts
featuring projects from our part time members
and any extra projects made by our full time DT!
 We remain dedicated to supporting a number of
other Challenge Blogs through sponsorship!
  We also added the Scribbles Designs Gallery
AND a Standout Scribblers Wall of Fame in January 2019!!!

The store has close to 1000 Scribbles Designs images,
with 170 of them being FREEBIES!
The store stays committed to offering Scribble Doodle Designs
(a collaborative effort between Sandy S. & Lisa D.)
and is still home to selling designs by D├ęcosse's Dynamite Doodles as well!

We've accomplished a lot in the last
SEVEN YEARS
and with your continued support, we hope to accomplish much more!!!
