THANKFUL for You Challenge

Click >HERE< for our Pumpkin Patch badge winners!

It will soon be Thanksgiving here in the USA and what better time of the year to make Thankful for You or Thank You Cards?  So that's what this challenge is all about.!  Create an A2 Card (4.25" x 5.5") that is a thank you card or a thankful card.  Your card does need to convey a thank you or thankful type message.  See the Designer cards below for examples.

To inspire you as you create your card, here are the fabulous Thankful cards by our Cards in Envy Designers.  Be sure to click on the links by their names to visit their blogs for more details and let them know you stopped by!




  Debbie, Scrap Enabler  


   Ellen, In a World of Craft 


   Karen, Calm Creations



 Kathy, The Crafty Nurse









 Patricia, Thinking of Inking 



 Sandy (Challenge Host) Sandy's Crafty Creations





We'd love to see your Thankful (Thank You) card!  Make sure it is an A2 card flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing.

Here are a few reminders about our challenge requirements:
  1. No square cards.  All cards entered must be A2 size (4.25" x 5.5")
  2. No lumpy, bumpy cards.  Elements on your card need to be relatively flat (no thicker than 1/4")
  3. Limit entries to 3 per challenge.
  4. No Back Linking.  Cards must be posted to your blog or online album during the challenge dates.  If it was posted online BEFORE the beginning of our challenge, it cannot be linked.
  5. Entry must be for the current theme: THANKFUL (Thank You)  A2 CARD
Additional rules can be found under the Challenge Guidelines tab at the top under our blog header.

Our Designers will be voting on their favorite cards which will be announced on our blog  the Tuesday or Wednesday following the close of the challenge.. We will have one FIRST CLASS which is the card that receives the most votes from the Designers and each Designer will pick one card as their favorite for  IN THE MAILBOX. That means we may have up to 10 In the Mailbox cards for a challenge.  We decided to go with this fun method as each Designer has their own unique style and preference.  Each chosen may grab one of our fun badges for their blog! The badges for the challenge will be in the winners post following the close of the challenge after all the Designer votes are in.  The winners will also be announced on our Facebook Page, so come Like us so you'll know quickly if you were a winner.  

THIS IS A CARDS ONLY CHALLENGE.  Entries not following our rules and guidelines will be deleted without notice or comment.  PLEASE NOTE:  NO SQUARE CARDS   Challenge ends Sunday,  November 30, 2014 at 6 p.m. Central Time.

IMPORTANT! Please make sure you are linking directly to your card POST and not just to your blog Home page.  When we click on your link below, it must take us to your card for this challenge, not just to your home page.  We've had several of these in the past and again for this challenge and I corrected them but will not correct this in the future.  Links that do not go directly to a card for the current challenge will be deleted.  Thank you--Sandy
