Rules for Participation

If you like card challenges, then this is the challenge blog for you, because we issue a new challenge EVERY DAY of the year!  For sketch lovers, every Sunday is a sketch challenge, followed by daily challenges that vary in type from Monday to Saturday.  If you want to share a card with us, you can add your link to the comments for a given challenge at any time.  If you want to be considered for a Spotlight Designer spot or you want to win a prize for the week, there are specific rules for participation, which you can read in the following sections.

Sponsored Weeks

A sponsored week runs from Sunday to Saturday. In order for you to have a chance to win that sponsored prize, you must play along with the Sunday Sketch challenge.

You will have until the following Saturday, at 11:59 PM EST to complete your cards and link them up to qualify for the drawing. The winner of the prize will be announced on Sunday when the new Sketch challenge is revealed.

Spotlight Designers

For each Sunday-Saturday period, the Design Team will select 3 cards that we would like to acknowledge for the respective designers' talent and creativity. The Spotlight Designers will be announced on the following Tuesday. The 3 people who earn Spotlight Designer can post the corresponding badge, which can be found in the sidebar, to their blogs.

Weekly Challenge All-Stars

Participants who complete all 7 challenges for the previous week by Sunday night will be acknowledged for this achievement.

Other Things

- Because we look at a lot of cards every week, it helps us if you link up the specific post under which your card resides.  It's fine if you have other projects listed under one post, as long as we don't have to search all over your blog for the right post.
- Even though this is a challenge blog geared towards card makers, we're thrilled if other crafters can find inspiration here as well.  Feel free to share other projects that were inspired by a 365 Cards challenge.
