Cute and Cuddly Challenge!

The Badge Winners for the Birthday Party challenge are listed >HERE<

We had a fabulous time celebrating with the Birthday Party challenge but now it's time to move on to a new challenge and this time we want to see cards that feature things that are CUTE and CUDDLY! This could be teddy bears, puppies, kittens, fluffy bunnies, lambs, cuddly toys etc. If it looks cute and cuddly and we can see from your card that it's cute and cuddly, it will be perfect for this challenge.  However, if you feel you need to explain why it's cute and cuddly then maybe it's really not.  As always, all cards linked for this challenge MUST be A2 size (4.25" x 5.5") AND flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing. If it doesn't fit those requirements, it will be deleted.

So what did our designers find that was CUTE and CUDDLY for their cards?  Well, scroll down a bit and you will see....please click on their blog link by their names for more details about their card creation and to leave them some comment love!

Now it's time for you to create a CUTE and CUDDLY CARD and share it with us in the linky below. Make sure it is an A2 card (4.25" x 5.5")  flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing.

Here are a few reminders about our challenge requirements:
  • No square or shaped cards.  All cards entered must be A2 size (4.25" x 5.5")
  • No lumpy, bumpy cards.  Elements on your card need to be relatively flat (no thicker than 1/4")
  • Limit entries to 3 per challenge.
  • 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.
  • Entry must be for the current theme: Cute and Cuddly

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.  REMEMBER!  NO SQUARE or SHAPED CARDS   Challenge ends Sunday, September 6, 2015   at 6 p.m. Central Daylight Time.
