Love Me or Love My Pet Card Challenge

Click >HERE< for the It's All in the Numbers Badge Winners!

Hello and welcome to our second card challenge for January!  With Valentine's Day coming soon, we thought you might be in the mood to make some Love cards.  And so, our challenge for the next two weeks is "Love Me or Love My Pet."  We'd love to see your Love card and better yet, your Love card featuring a pet!  Remember, this is a CARDS ONLY challenge and your card must be flat enough to fit in an envelope for mailing--no thick buttons, flowers, bows etc.

Our Cards in Envy Designers have create a lovely assortment of Love cards to inspire you.  Please click on the blog name by each designer's name for more details about their card.

Sherry, Bits of Cheer 

We'd love to see your "Love Me or Love My Pet" card!

Here are a few reminders about our challenge requirements:
  • No lumpy, bumpy cards.  Elements on your card need to be relatively flat (no thicker than 1/4") so your card would fit in an envy (envelope) for mailing
  • Limit entries to 3 per challenge.
  • No Back Linking--cards must be posted to your blog or an online album during the challenge dates. If it was posted online BEFORE the beginning of our challenge, it cannot be linked.
  • Entry must be for the current theme.
  • Cards Only--NO TAGS

Additional rules can be found under the Challenge Guidelines tab at the top under our blog header.  Entries not following our rules and not for the current challenge theme will be deleted without notice or comment. We accept any size/shape of card BUT all cards must be flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing (no thicker than 1/4") which means no lumpy, bumpy embellishments. 

Challenge ends Sunday, February 3, 2019  at 6:00 p.m. Central Time. 

Our Designers will be voting on the cards after the challenge ends and the winners will be announced by Wednesday morning  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 considered the best overall card for the theme.  The Designers will also pick one card as their personal favorite for an IN THE MAILBOX badge. 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 are a winner.

  3. As a former OWHer, CIE was one of the first challenge blogs that I played along with. While I haven't had a chance to join in the CIE fun this past year, I still loved seeing what you CIE gals were up to. Thanks for such fun themes and wonderfully inspiring cards. All my best to everyone at CIE! :)
