"You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town"

Well here it is! The first day of December! Are you ready?  SANTA is coming to town and that's our card challenge for the next two weeks! We want to see your A2 cards that feature Santa, Santa's Hat or Santa's Suit!  Remember, your card must be flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing AND must be the A2 size (4.25" x 5.5")

Our designers have created some really cute Santa themed cards for your enjoyment and inspiration! Be sure to visit the links to their blogs for more card creation details and leave them some comment love!

We can't wait to see your SANTA themed 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: SANTA is Coming to Town  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,  December 14, 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 we 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.
