I am getting a head start on this. OK for all you newbies to the family. Last year we had a contest to design a souvenir sheet (not valid for postage) to honor the anniversary of the SCF site. 100% of proceeds went to the SCF to keep the website running. The s/s were dry gum backed, released on 12/29/2009 and hand numbered. You could purchase them for $1.00 each as a mint single, sheet of 6, or used on a cover plus shipping and handling. I think all that participated had a great time last year and all that purchased a sheet was satisfied with the final result.

I am not sure on when the contest will end at this time- DETAILS pending. Once all entries have been received a POLL will be posted to vote for your favorite. The voting will be anonymous. Also, due to an expectant baby in late December I may need some help managing this project.

RULES:
1 entry per member

Must have either "Stamp Community Forum", "Stamp Community Family", or "www.stampcommunity.org" prominent in the design.

HAVE FUN

Email "stamperdude" your finished design entry to be included in the Poll for voting

If anyone has any other suggestions, questions, or comments let us know.

That is great Smauggie! I thought my post had gone to wayside. I'm glad someone has responded and resurrected the post! I also can't wait to see your design.

Edwin,
As of right now there has not been a deadline for entries set. If I had to guess I would say at least until October. Then the poll will be held to pick a winner.

I too am not a designer.
my vote is for the second sheet shown.
I think that the avatars from our members is a must.
it should if possible, include any new avatars .

DJD,
None of the images shown above are entries into the 2010 contest. They are the entries and winner of the 2009 contest.

Thanks for the congrats on the upcoming baby. Who knows it might be born on the anniversary date of the SCF 12/29.

sv,
I am sure I will make one for the new baby. This year I slacked off for my son's 4th b-day cover, it was on a Sunday this year. I will be sending off for a pictorial postmark with a cachet of him on his special day. I have also made them for my nephew and for my cousin's daughter when they were born.
