Hi there, Layle with you today for another round of Pick a Card, Any Card!
Each month, 5 of our design team members and I will be picking one of our favorite Simple Stories or SN@P! 3x4 or 4x6 cards and sharing them with you - in more ways than one! We've introduced so many GREAT cards over the last few years that I thought it would be fun to share some of our favorite cards each month, tell you why they're our favorites and then give you a chance to win not only the specific cards that we picked, but the other cards they're paired up with as part of the set (more on that fun giveaway at the end of this post)!
If you missed last month's picks, you can see them here.
To kick off this month's version of Pick a Card, Any Card, here's one of my favorites -
This 3x4 card is from our Daily Grind 3x4 Journaling Card Elements. I love the versatility of this card; it can really be used for anything! Between the kraft colored background, the light colored months and then the brightly colored months mixed in for random pops of color, it just makes me happy :)
When I asked Donna why she chose this card, she said -
"I love this card because I happen to be drawn to travel lines. I thought the combination of the map background with the pretty script font was interesting. Plus, this card could be used for a few different themes, not just travel, which makes it both cute and versatile"!
When I asked Emily why she chose this card, she said -
"This is one of my favorite cards because the saying is SO true. I treasure all of my friends, though they have thinned out over the years, the ones that have stuck around through thick and thin are TRUE friends and I feel very lucky & blessed to have them in my life".
"I love it because it's a new twist on making a list for your journaling. Pie charts are still oh so trendy and I love that you can add elements of your day, your trip, or whatever moments or events you are documenting in or around each section of the pie chart and journal about that part of the moment in the color coordinated lines below. How cool is that?!?! I love it and am using it the next time I sit down at my craft table"!
When I asked Kim why she selected this particular card, she said -
"As a cardmaker, anything that makes my life easier is a big plus. I just love all the cards in the SN@P! Baby Girl pack, but this "Love You to the Moon and Back" card is extra special. It has a cute graphic design and a great sentiment all rolled into one. I know that I can add a card stock mat, a few stickers and some ribbon and end up with a really special card in no time flat".
"As a cat lover I laughed when I saw this and remembered a trip my husband and I took last summer. This older gentleman was on a motorized bicycle and his cat was sitting on his lap. As he crossed the busy street he said " Hold On Mr. Whiskers" and of course hubby and I thought it was the cutest and funniest thing ever. We could just imagine the chaos our cat Eddie would cause if we tried this with him! This card makes me smile ;-) ".
So, what do you think? How about those picks - pretty fun, right?!
OK, now to more good stuff. At the beginning of this post I mentioned something about a giveaway! Enter via the Rafflecopter widget below by end of day Thursday, March 6th telling me which of our 6 cards is your favorite and why. On Friday I'll draw one random lucky winner to win not only the cards we selected, but the rest of the cards that are included with each package the cards are from - that's all of these fabulous Simple Stories cards that you see below, people!
WOW! That's a lot of card goodness if I do say so myself. Good luck!
