Challenge Rules

The response has been awesome, and I can’t wait to get the challenges up and going! Before we can do that, you need to know how things are going to work around here. It will be a little different than most challenge blogs, so it’s really important that you understand how to participate, and the benefits available to you!

First things first. This is a challenge blog. There will be semi monthly challenges, semi-monthly meaning, the 1st and the 15th of each month. The only real change you have is to create ANYTHING BUT A CARD.

Just to recap: challenge = anything but a card.

I don’t want to limit you to certain colors, photos, patterns, etc. I want you to feel inspired to create a project without limitations. So there have to be a few rules…


  • Please don’t back link. All projects should be posted with in the challenge time frame, so the 1st-13th or the 15th-28th.
  • Please be sure to include a link to our challenge in your blog post. It helps others find us as well!
  • Projects have to be anything but a card.
  • If you wish to be entered into the giveaway please include GD after your inlinkz entry. Should you forget to do this, please add it in your blog posting, or edit your inlinkz entry.

Edited November 15th 2012. Unfortunately I will not be able to offer giveaways. The cost of shipping packages adds up fairly quick, and I cannot keep up with it. I will be working to find companies willing to offer gift certificates or digital products in exchange. I hope to continue giveaways in 2013! Thank you for your patience while I sort this out!

The fun part!

We have a lot of really great companies lined up to sponsor Anything But A Card’s challenges for the rest of 2012- that’s eight different companies, eight different challenges. LOTS of opportunity to win more than $500 in prizes!

For each challenge you have the choice to participate in a few different ways. The first way is to participate for fun, with the opportunity to be featured as our *very creative* entry. We all love to have fun, right!? So, you can participate for fun. OR you can participate with the hope of winning the loot, the gold, the grand prize! BUT, winning the grand prize comes with a big responsibility. As the grand prize winner, you will be featured as a guest designer for Anything But A Card! As a guest designer, you’ll have to use the products you won from the sponsor. (or other products you may have from the company who sponsored the challenge). You’ll be featured on our blog, FaceBook page, as well as Twitter and Instagram! If you want to participate to be a guest designer, you’ll need to mention that in your blog post, or by adding “GD” after your name in the link tool. 

How does that sound? Exciting! I know it’s different than most challenges, but, I’m hoping it’ll work out! Here’s your chance to ask questions if you have any! Just leave them here in our comment section and I’ll be sure to answer them ASAP!
