Be My Valentine Card Challenge

Click >HERE< for our Pink & Gray Badge Winners!

Hello and Happy February to you! It's the month of hearts and love so of course we wanted to do a card challenge that is all about that!  Our theme for this challenge is BE MY VALENTINE cards!  Your card may be any size and any shape but it must be flat enough to fit in a envelope for mailing.

Our designers have created another wonderful assortment of cards to inspire you for this challenge.  We'd also like to introduce you to our newest design team member--Toni Maddox of Frankie Helps Craft!  Scroll down further to see her first card for our team and also check out her bio on our Design Team Page.  We are excited to have Toni on our team and can't wait to see the cards she'll create for our challenges! Please visit all of our designers' blogs by clicking on their blog links by their name for more details on their cards and to leave them personal comment love!

We'd love to see your  Be My Valentine cards. Please read over our challenge requirements and then share your card in the linky at the end of this post. 

Here are a few reminders about our challenge requirements:
  • No lumpy, bumpy cards.  Elements on your card need to be relatively flat (no thicker than 1/4") so your card would fit in an envy (envelope) for mailing
  • Limit entries to 3 per challenge.
  • No Back Linking--cards must be posted to your blog or an 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.
  • Cards Only--NO TAGS

Additional rules can be found under the Challenge Guidelines tab at the top under our blog header.

Our Designers will be voting on the cards after the challenge ends and the winners will be announced by Wednesday morning  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 considered the best overall card for the theme.  The Designers will also pick one card as their personal favorite for an IN THE MAILBOX badge. 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 are a winner. 

THIS IS A CARDS ONLY CHALLENGE--NO TAGS.  Entries not following our rules and not for the current challenge theme will be deleted without notice or comment. We accept any size/shape of card BUT all cards must be flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing (no thicker than 1/4") which means no lumpy, bumpy embellishments. Challenge ends Sunday, February 19th, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. Central  Time.

    1. Billie check the link again. I could not pull up any of the links for cards in the challenge so switched back to the regular inlinkz instead of the Beta version. Sorry that you could not link your card but I think it will work for you now.

  4. This is my first time here. So exciting to find a great place, what a lovely challenge. I can't wait to play along.
