Welcome to 2016

If you were with us in 2015, THANK YOU and you'll see lots of new things in 2016.  
If this is your first time with us, WELCOME!

Starting tomorrow we will create a card a day (or two or three or maybe more) for you and challenge you to create a card too.  Every day is a new challenge.*  

Sunday's challenges are Clean and Simple. 

Mondays are our Mistletoe Monday challenges, create a card with us each week and you'll have your holiday cards done and ready to send in December.

Tuesdays are our Color Challenge.  We'll give you a color palette to draw from and you create a card.  You can use any medium, paper, ink, watercolors, glitter, whatever you have that fits the colors to create your card with.

Wednesdays are our Sketch Challenge.  We provide a sketch, sometimes an original from us, sometimes from another fantastic sketch source and you create a card based on the sketch.  Remember that sketches can be interpreted in tons of ways.  We challenge you to take the sketch and make it several ways.  Use paper to create the layers on the first card, make the second card one layer using masking and stamping, mix the third card up combining the paper and masking. Sketches are a great way to jump start your creativity.

Thursdays are our Technique Challenge. Each one is pushing you to try something new to you or a technique you haven't played with in a while or taking a technique you use often in a whole new direction.

Friday's are Anything Goes or C.A.S.E. A Card Challenges.  For Anything Goes, we may give you a technique, a color, a theme or who knows what it might be and you create a card. For the C.A.S.E. A Card Challenges we provide you with a card that we've found on a blog, Pinterest or one of ours and you and the Design Team C.A.S.E. (Copy and Share Everything) it.  Remember that when you C.A.S.E. a card you should change at least three things, where it is color, pattern, stamps, etc so that you are not duplicating the card exactly and always if you are publishing the card give credit to the inspiration.

Saturday's are Inspiration or Surprises or a Blog Hop.  One Saturday each month we participate in a blog hop and you don't want to miss it.  Each Design Team Member creates are card for the hop, so there is tons of inspiration and card goodness that day.  Other Saturdays are filled with cards based on a mood board or a photo or could be something like combine two challenges. The possibilities are endless.

We've got other great surprises in store too.  We've got brand new Design Team Members who will be introduced this month.

*January will be a bit different than other months, as we all created the same challenges for you but instead of a new challenge each week you'll see the same challenge but a whole new take on it by different DT members. 

Starting in February you'll see a new challenge every day. 

So get ready, tomorrow is a brand new year at Card A Day Challenge Blog and we are so excited you've come along for the ride.

Happy Crafting
Theresa and the Design Team


  1. So exciting to see a new year starting and I'm sure there will be LOTS of inspiration here!

  2. I'm a new follower. I don't get much time to create cards so a different challenge each today is intriguing.
