Big News from The Chicks!

March 19, 2009 at 4:20 pm 5 comments

As you may have noticed, there’s nothing we love better here at Chicks with Inkpads than a great card challenge to play. We’ve found lots of great challenges to love, but we’ve noticed that Tuesdays seem to be a slow news day out there on the blogs so……we’ve decided to start our own!

That’s right, starting next Tuesday, you can play along with

Every Tuesday morning we’ll be posting a new inspiration photo to get you started. Just look at the picture and let it lead you anywhere you want to go! Maybe the colour combination speaks to you, or maybe the positioning of certain items inspires you. You might get distracted by one tiny element that reminds you of your favourite embossing folder. It’s all good! There are no rules! We’ll even get you started with samples made by us and our hand picked guest designers. Just make a card with anything you like and link it up before midnight on the following Monday. We’ll be picking our favourites and announcing the top five on Tuesdays along with a new challenge for you to try. If your card is selected for the top five, you will be invited to be a guest designer for the following week’s challenge. You’ll be famous!

Don’t have a blog? Not sure how to link up? Never tried posting a card before? Feeling a distinct lack of confidence? Don’t worry! If you have a digital camera and an internet connection, anyone can play. I’ll be posting tutorials on photographing your card, uploading to a public gallery, using Mr. Linky, and even getting started with your own blog between now and our first challenge on Tuesday.

So follow along with us and get ready to play! Tuesdays are looking a whole lot better to me now!
