How to Play with Us

We'd love to have you play with us! 
The main idea of the challenge is encouragement cards.
We all know someone at some point who could use a little lift.
Whether it's an illness, a loss, a crossroad in life, or simply someone in need of a hug, encouragement cards can put a smile on someone's face when they really need it.

We'll provide a new inspiration board on the 18th of each
month for you to use to create your encouragement card.
Use the colors we highlight, draw inspiration from the photo, or both.

1.  There are NO product requirements to play or win.
This challenge is designed to inspire you to create encouragement cards.
You may use any product you have in your crafty stash.
We will be showcasing CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and Fri-Dies regularly,
and we'd love to see you putting yours into action too,
 but you are NOT required to use CFS products in order to play or win.

2. There are NO style restrictions.
Just have fun!
Use the monthly challenge inspiration board to create an encouragement card.
You can draw inspiration from the photo itself or use the color chips provided or both as you create an encouragement card.
There are no style restrictions so if you're feeling clean and simple, utterly adorable layers, mixed media or anything in between, go for it! 

3. Enter as many projects as you'd like!
Just be sure to enter each of them separately.
Remember, your projects must be new...that means not posted anywhere prior to the start of our challenge.

4. We need to be easily directed to your project. 
Please link to your project post, and not just a generic link to your blog or gallery. 
You can link to a blog post, flickr post, SCS post or any other gallery that doesn't require us to be a member in order to see your work.
**Also, please provide a link back to our challenge in your post so your fans can find us and play along too.

5. Let the Happy Dancing begin! 
When the challenge closes, we will announce the Winner and 2 favorites.

Whether you are new to blogging, or a seasoned challenge lover, we can't wait to see your projects!
Let the fun begin!!
