Rev it Up! Challenge

WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT!  The designers have voted and their favorite card for the Rev It Up! Challenge is #4 Sherry Hickey! Sherry will receive our FIRST IN CLASS badge! Congratulations Sherry!  The other 3 entries for this challenge will all receive the IN THE MAILBOX BADGE! Thanks so much for joining in on this challenge with us.  Due to a mix-up during moving to a new blog from Feline Playful to Paper Playful, our challenge was not listed so we ended up fewer entries for this challenge but that's okay.  We are back on the Paper Playful Lists and we loved the cards that did enter this challenge! Again, Thank you to each of you!

Let's REV IT UP!  For this challenge we'd like to see your A2 (4.25" x5.5") card creations that feature things with motors that one can "rev up." Think motorcycles, cars, airplanes, helicopters etc.  Any transportation type vehicle that has a motor that revs up.  We can't wait to see what you create and share!

Remember, your card needs to be relatively flat (no lumpy, bumpy embellishments, flowers, buttons etc.) The total thickness of your  card and the envelope should be no more than 1/4" so it will fit through the USA post office guide, if it's thicker than that, it will cost extra postage and will not be a card for our Cards in Envy challenge.

With our first challenge in August, comes the end of our first 6 months as a challenge blog! I want to thank everyone who visits our blog, follows, likes us on Facebook and/or participates in our challenges! We are so happy to have you join us.  It is also the end of our first term for our Designers and a few will be leaving us to design for other challenges or to take a break to spend time with family or focus on their personal life. With this post, we are saying goodbye to Cissy, Katie,  Lisa B and Tanya.  We will miss them but are happy to have new Designers in our family--Debbie , Lisa M. and Wendi joined us in July and with this challenge we welcome Kristie!  Please visit their blogs and let them know you were there.

And now, let's see what our designers have found that will REV IT UP!

Beep, beep! How about a shopping trip in a pickup truck?  Danie created this fabulous birthday card with bright colors and an adorable city scene!

Ptttttt, ptttttt! Debbie wishes a Happy Birthday with this cute helicopter that's flying by!

Toot, toot!  Denise created a simple CAS card with lots of impact and a vintage blue pickup. Any man would be thrilled with this card!

Jingle, jingle! It's the chime and melody of an ice cream truck!  Karen created this super fun and yummy card wishing a Happy Birthday!

Honk, honk! Kristie's bright and fun card lets someone know that they "make the road of life more Fun!"

Vroom, vroom!  Lisa's super cute race car card is zipping by to wish a Happy Birthday 2 U!

Whirrrr, Whirrrr!  While not reving it up as fast as the others, it certainly can when it needs too!  Marilyn's adorable yellow submarine sends a greeting of "Best Fishes!"

Zoom, zoom!  Sandy's red hot race car revs by with a special "you make my heart race" sentiment for a loved one!
