9th Birthday Celebration--Puzzle #4

Hello everyone! On August 15, we embarked on our month long birthday celebration by launching our regular monthly challenge. There are multiple prizes available this month (the total number will depend on the number of entries we get) so click HERE to check out all the details for our current challenge. Then, later that same day we offered you an opportunity to complete a digital puzzle which you can find HERE. We released puzzle #2 on August 18th and you can find the link for that one HERE. Puzzle #3 was released on August 22 and you can find it HERE.

Today it is time to continue with Puzzle #4. As a reminder, each Monday and Thursday, from August 15th to September 12th, you will have the opportunity to assemble a digital puzzle. If you are familiar with all the instructions, you can skip ahead down to the bottom of this post to work on Puzzle #4. If you haven't seen that first puzzle post, please read on for more details…
A total of NINE projects from our team--one puzzle for each year Scribbles Designs has been in business--will be transformed into a puzzle and YOU will have to assemble the puzzle and submit a picture of it via email (more details on that to follow) in order to have a chance to win the image used in each of the puzzles. 


There will be a random draw from all the screen shots submitted for EACH completed puzzle. Winners will receive a copy of the main mandala/zentangle image used in each puzzle. That means there will a total of nine prizes available--one for each puzzle!
Additionally, at the end of the ninth competition, I will submit the names of those people who completed the puzzle with the fastest time for each puzzle round, and choose an additional winner to win a special prize! 

How To Play:

  1. At the very bottom of this page you will find today's puzzle.
  2. You do have the option of changing the colour background if you want, by clicking the little colour palette icon (showcased in the bar in the centre of the screen before you start).  
  3. I have disabled the option of changing the number of puzzle pieces in order to make it fair for everyone participating. 
  4. You can rotate the puzzle pieces (circular arrow icon) but I wouldn't recommend it because it will change all the pieces and will change the orientation of the picture. 
  5. Click 'OK' to start the puzzle. Click on the full screen icon (next to the question mark in the upper right corner) to make your puzzle bigger. Click Esc on your keyboard to bring it back to regular size.
  6. If you need help with the puzzle instructions, click the question mark (?) in the upper right corner at any time. You will know the puzzle has been completed properly when your timer stops and you see applause at the bottom of the screen, and then the credit line will appear.
  7. You should be able to complete each puzzle in approx. 10 to 15 minutes (possibly less, possibly more, depending on your own unique speed). If you need to pause the puzzle for any reason, simply click the timer up in the right hand corner (to the left of the full screen mode button). A white pop up window will come up and the puzzle itself will be blacked out to prevent cheating while in pause mode. Then, click 'resume' to continue when you are ready.
  8. If you need a hint for today's puzzle, be sure to click HERE. Today's puzzle is a blast from the past and might be a bit trickier to find as it is from a challenge post here on this blog. To narrow it down a bit, don't forget that you are looking for a card made with a zentangle among the cards showcased.
  9. Once you have completed the puzzle correctly, take a screen shot of it using the print screen feature of your keyboard OR using the Snipping Tool under Windows Accessories or the Snip & Sketch app listed under 'S' in the apps list (tools will probably depend on which version of Windows you have--I have Windows 10). Sorry, I'm not sure what tools are available if you are using an Apple product or your phone or tablet, though most phones and tablets have some sort of screen capture tool. I suppose if it comes to it, you could always snap a pic of your computer screen with your phone or tablet. I tried doing that myself with my tablet and the picture turned out fine. IMPORTANT: If you want a chance to win the bonus prize available, make sure that your picture encompasses the full puzzle, including the timer at the top. Please refer to Instructions and Deadline for Sending Completed Puzzle image, found below.
  10. If you have any problems or questions, leave a comment and I will try and help you out when I get on-line for the day.

Instructions and Deadline for

Sending Completed Puzzle Image…

Please send a message to Lisa at decossesdynamitedoodles [at] yahoo [dot] ca (don't forget to replace 'at' and 'dot' with the appropriate symbols), with the subject heading, "SD Birthday 2022-Puzzle #4". Be sure to attach a copy of the image of your completed puzzle showing the time in which you finished it. Below is an example of what the image should encompass (though obviously it will have a different completed puzzle).

In order to qualify for the draw, all images for PUZZLE #4 must be received in my email account by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Daylight Savings Time, SEPTEMBER 1, 2022. This gives you ONE WEEK to complete the puzzle. Once you have submitted your image by email, please leave a comment on this post letting us know. That way I will have an idea of who has participated, just in case there is a problem with my email account.

Before you go...

As mentioned above, new puzzles will be released each Monday and Thursday, from August 15th to September 12th at 6:00 p.m., PDT, so be sure to come back on Monday, August 29th, for Puzzle #5.

Time to Play!

Here is your fourth puzzle of the event. Have fun!


  1. Okay. Let me start by saying that I have never liked (aka been good at doing) puzzles. Even though my mom loved them, I think the many times I was teased by my evil brothers for being so slow has ruined my desire to ever do them! So… this is my first attempt at an on-line puzzle. Although it took me waaay longer (17:32) than your predicted time frame, I did enjoy it. So will try another one and see if I can beat my time! TFS Kathy A (aka myasperations)

    1. So glad you are able to join us Kathy! I've sent you a reply by email.

  2. This puzzle was a lot of fun - my favourite so far - and it's such a pretty card! I wanted to give you a shout out, Lisa, for all you do here at Scribbles! It must have been a lot of work to put together this celebration and all of the puzzles, and I want to say THANK YOU! You are very much appreciated! When I first started blogging, there were more celebrations like this but I don't see hardly any of them any more, so I really appreciate the time and effort that you put into this party! I wouldn't miss it! I've been enjoying the challenge and the puzzles very much, and of course I'm looking forward to the next puzzle! Sending hugs and appreciation from Nova Scotia!

    1. Ah Kitty, thank you so much for your very kind words. They truly mean a lot to me. Yes, it seems the world of card challenge blogs has changed a lot in the years. I'm happy that we can continue to provide you with a little bit of extra fun now and again here at Scribbles Designs.

  3. This was definitely the hardest so far..... lovey card with a striking design.

  4. Fun! fun! fun! I didn't even know I had a snip tool!

  5. Forgot to leave a comment, but I sent email with the puzzle yesterday. Kisses!
