Best of Friends Challenge

Please click >HERE< for the badge winners of our last challenge.

"You're a true friend
You're here till the end
You pull me aside
When something ain't right
Talk with me now and into the night
'Til it's alright again
You're a true friend."
--lyrics from "True Friend" Hannah Montana

For this challenge, we want to celebrate "Best of Friends!"  Please create and share an A2 card that depicts "friends"--two or more "buddies" OR a card for a friend--sentiment or card image/design must be specifically for a friend.

As always, your card must be A2 size (4.25" X 5.5") and flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing. If it requires extra postage then it is not a Card in Envy card.

Here are the incredibly awesome BEST OF FRIENDS cards by our talented Cards in Envy Designers. Please leave a comment for this post to let them know you appreciate their inspiration and visit their blogs for more details.

We'd love to see your Best of Friends A2 Cards that are flat enough to fit in an envelope and be mailed for first class postage.  

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.

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 will receive one of our fun badges for their blog!  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.  Challenge ends Sunday,  August 31st  at 6 p.m. Central Time.
