Default F4A86 - Cards With Character - 10/14/11

F4A86 – Cards with Character – 10/14/11

I KNOW we all love to make cards ... you wouldn’t even be READING this if you didn’t!!! And oft-times we make cards just because a challenge dictates, or because we want it for our “arsenal” of “just in case” …

Today, I would like you to make a card with a specific purpose in mind. In fact, I would like you to make a card that directly reflects something about the person for whom you are making it. A favorite color … a hobby … something they collect … just make sure that your card reflects the character of the person who is going to receive it!!

My sample is for my brother-in-law, Richard. Not only does he LOVE bowties, but he also rides his UNICYCLE to his law office every single day!! Rain/shine/or snow!! Here’s an article about him, see??? (He is someone I would DEFINITELY say has a LOT of character!!)

Man Rides Unicycle to/from Work | ksl.com

Here is my sample:

Richard’s Bowtie

Keyword: F4A86

F4A86 Gallery

Uploading: Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!


Need help linking a card? Follow these instructions!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Got to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.
You’re done!

Great challenge! I like your card and story. If I have time to participate in the challenge later today, it'll be great to get one or more cards for upcoming birthdays completed. Let's see ... one person loves cats, another has fresh flowers in her house year round, another has a collection of wizard stuff, another loves rock music ... lots to work with there!

Great challenge Wendy! It was an easy one for me because I love creating cards with the recipient's character in mind -- that's what cardmaking is all about -- creating something special for someone special. Here's my Fly Fishing Heritage card.

Heart Christmas Quilt

I'm a little late as usual...

This is a special Christmas card I made for my sister and her husband. It's called Christmas Quilt. She loves to quilt and is awesome at it!

Blessings!
