Hey Dude! Challenge

The badge winners for the When Nature Calls Challenge have been posted >HERE<

 "I know who I am. I'm the dude playin' the dude, disguised as another dude!"
~Kirk Lazarus, Tropic Thunder (2008)

It's time for another challenge here on Cards in Envy and this time we are making cards for the men in our lives with the challenge theme of "Hey Dude!" We are looking for A2 (4.25" x 5.5") cards  that are masculine and perfect to send to a guy.  Remember, your card must also be flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing and as always, no square cards.

To inspire you and help you think of a "Hey Dude" card, our Cards in Envy Designers came up with these fabulous cards! Be sure to click on each designer's link for more details on their own personal blogs and leave them some comment love!

And one other thing....we are thrilled to welcome a new Cards in Envy Designer! Sybrina King has joined our creative group.  She's no stranger to Cards in Envy as she's played in many challenges and has won some of our badges.  Please give a big welcome to Sybrina, read her bio in our Designer tab above and visit her blog!

We hope we've inspired you to create your own  Hey Dude card and share it with us in the linky below.  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: Hey Dude
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 8 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,  May 31, 2015  at 6 p.m. Central Time.
