This week's challenge...make a simple just because, no special occasion card using designer paper & send it to someone! Same rule as last week, you can't enter until the card has been given or mailed. I didn't have much time to make the example card today, this was REALLY quick...and so simple, I almost didn't want to post it! I let the DP (brocade backgrounds) do the work for me. I found a piece that was really lovely, and just added some gold cord and a medallion. My card is going out to a friend who I've been meaning to send a card to forever, but that thought keeps getting pushed to the "I'll do that later" category. Sometimes, I get a little caught up in wanting to make a really special card, so instead of just sending out that greeting, it gets put off. I think my friend will appreciate receiving the greeting in a simple card versus not receiving a card at all. So, the whole point of this week is to 1) let the dp do the work for you, 2) keep it simple, 3) send a note to someone, just because. Upload your card to Splitcoast, using the keyword (no spaces): PSG118. If you don't have a SC gallery, you can link me to your blog. It would be great if you could upload to Splitcoast...that way we can go into the PSG118 gallery & check out everyone's entries! And don't forget to leave a comment under this posting and link me to your entry. And the most important part...have fun = ) !!
This week's challenge will end at 5pm on Weds November 14th. I'll select 2 winners from all the entries in a random drawing...it was just too hard to select one this week...I'm going to keep it simple and just go with a random drawing for winners. At the end of the month, each of the weekly winner's names will go into a drawing for the BLOG CANDY...check out all the details on my November 1st post, "Time to Celebrate"!
