Hi everyone! I'm so glad you are able to join us for a day full of fun and prizes and I hope you're just as excited as the entire Design Team! Please read this entire post before you begin...

Today's FUN is called:

Here's how it works...

You will visit the blogs of 10 Design Team members. Once you arrive on the DT blog, find the post for today's BONUS Fun and follow the instructions. You're not just blog're actually going to make a card. Each blog will have information on what to add to your card and where to go next...and when you've visited all 10 blogs you will have created or "built" a card! Be sure to go in order so you don't miss anything!

Once you've finished visiting all 10 blogs, followed all the instructions, and added all the elements you are free to decorate the inside of the card as you wish or leave it blank! That part is totally up to you. However, when your card is complete, be sure to come back here to this post and leave a comment with a DIRECT LINK to your creation in order to be entered in the drawing for this fabulous prize:
Not only will one lucky winner win the above prize package, donated by July's Guest Designer, Carolyn, but the winner will also receive ALL of the Design Team cards created for this week's challenge! (with the exception of Carly's card)

Oh, there's one more thing! If you choose to PHYSICALLY MAIL me your completed card, to be given away as a prize for Stamptacular's next Bonus Fun Day, you'll be entered into a drawing for another FABULOUS prize! This is a prize everyone will absolutely drool over...However, you'll have to take my word for it and make your way through the BUILD-A-CARD extravaganza to find out what it is!

You will start your BUILD-A-CARD journey by visiting Nikki's blog. Have fun!

There is a break in the build a card. I got to number 7 so will come back later to get the rest of the pieces of the construction.Hopefully they'll be posted by then. Thanks for such a fun bonus idea! :D

Suzi Mac said...

Fantastic idea, really excited about this challenge, it's out of the box and very inventive, but there is a break at no 8 Dee, so will come back later.

This sounds like fun.. I am not sure I have all the instructions.

Some of the blogs were difficult to find the instructions and next step.

Will check back later and try again. Thank you for the fun idea though..

I had the problem of number 8 too, so thanks for supplying the necessary info to let us get going! I think I listed some elements in the wrong order on my blog, but I think they're all there.

I had such a blast doing this challenge. It really got my mind working and got me to go thru all of my scrapbooking supplies. WHen I saw the friendship theme requirement I just knew that I had to do a Raggedy Ann & Andy theme.
