Creepy Crawlies Challenge!

Click >HERE< for the badge winners of our last challenge--the Colors of Fall!

It's October! A time when those who love Autumn and Halloween, start to think of things that are CREEPY and CRAWL(IES)!  And that is our card challenge this time around--CREEPY CRAWLIES!  Yep, we are looking for  cards featuring things that are creepy & crawly--spiders, bugs, snakes etc. Now, keep in mind that your card does NOT have to be a Halloween card though you are welcome to make and share one, but your card could also be happy and cheery featuring insects and bugs like a couple of our CIE Designers have made. BUT your card MUST be an A2 size only (that's a rectangle 4.25" x 5.5" card, nothing square) AND flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing.

To help you get started and to inspire you, our CIE Designers have come up with these fabulous cards! Please click on their blog link by their names and visit their blogs for more details about their card creation and leave them some comment love!

Now it's time for you to create a CREEPY CRAWLIES 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(shaped cards allowed IF you list the size of your card--height and width). 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:  CREEPY CRAWLIES

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 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 unless you provide the measurements of your shaped card.   Challenge ends Sunday, October 18, 2015   at 6 p.m. Central Daylight Time. 


  1. why is blogger so fickle??? I just noticed my in the mail badge from here....and I thought I haven't gotten notifications from you from a while...sure enough I followed the link from my badge and i was no longer under the bloggers followers!!! I love this blog because I really mail a lot of my cards and I appreciate the recognition for cards that really can be mailed! I am following again and promise to play again soon!
