Think you have the game of Survivor all figured out? Think again!

Can you out-wit, out-stamp, and out-last your opponents? If so, get ready to play Survivor, Shack style!

Game Start Date: November 2, 2009

Gallery Close: November 1, 2009 at exactly 6:00pm Central Time. No late entries will be accepted so please be sure to have your entry uploaded on time.

Object of the game: To have your card avoid elimination and be the last one remaining in the gallery.

Instructions:

Make yourself a card as your official game entry. You can make your card very plain and simple with the hope that what you do put on your card flies under the radar and avoids elimination. Or, you can choose to make your card absolutely wild and crazy and over the top with hopes that the crazy items on your card don’t get you eliminated! Or anything in between!

When your card is completed upload it to our Shack Survivor card gallery (http://stamp-shack.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=638).
Once the contest has begun, we will release an 'Elimination Statement' each and every morning. If your card contains the item listed in the elimination statement for that day, it is removed from the game and from the gallery. An elimination statement might look something like this: 'If your card contains a red brad, you are eliminated from play.' So, all entries containing a red brad(s) will be eliminated from the game.

Elimination statements will be released each day until we have just one card remaining in the gallery. The final card is our Shack Survivor and is the winner of the contest and the prize!

The Rules:

Only ONE entry per player, please.
Please be sure that your entry/photo is as clear as possible (ie. no tiny little photos, no blurry photos).
When uploading your entry, be sure to provide an accurate list of all items/colors/techniques/stamp manufacturers used on your card. If you fail to do this, your entry will be removed.
To keep things fair, only standard greeting cards will be accepted into play. No 6x6 recipe cards, ATCs, or altered items are permitted.
There must be at least 15 entries uploaded in the gallery on the day that the game commences. If there are fewer than 15 cards in the Survivor Game Gallery, the game will be postponed until a later date or until we have the minimum number of entries.
The Prize: $25 gift certificate from one of our sponsors.

You are so fast Sherri, and your little penguin is really cute.
I'm going to try to find time to make a card this weekend. But I'm not sure what to put on it - I'm almost always one of the first off the island.:arghh:

How come I am not seeing the Survivor cards that are posted?
1) I need to open my eyes
2) I'm an ignoramous
3) I am not pushing the correct buttons
4) It's too advanced for a Kansas gal
5) all of the above....
really though- what am I doing wrong?

the album for Survivor 2009 is not open yet. Sherri's card is in with the cards from last season. I might suggest that you put 2009 in your title to help Christie when she moves the cards into the new album.

The great thing about this competition is that you can use any card that you have already made, as long as you have never posted it in the gallery here before. So those of you thinking you don't have time to make a new card, look thru your stash..but you will need to remember what products you used and give a full description, including if you coloured with watercolours, or copics, or pencils etc. Remember the elimination statements can be "if your card contains xxx, you are eliminated", and it can also be "if you did not use xxx you are eliminated" so there's no way of knowing if "less is more",,,or "more is more". I bet Christie is having fun thinking up her clues.

The gallery is now open and you can post your cards there. Please remember to put full descriptions of what was used!!!

you only have until tomorrow to get your entry in---get a move on! It can be any type of card. I am not playing, but will help Christie with any admin as needed.
A little birdy told me there is a $25 voucher from MY Favourite Things up for grabs.

We just need two more players to play. Hurry, put something in the gallery. Use one of the things you're making for a swap or a christmas card. Anything works as long as it's a card.

I just put my card in. Turned out a smidge fuzzy, don't know what's up with that. As soon as green ink is called, I'm out though! I think I used 4 different ones! My island is a tropical floral place!
