You're invited... to a cardathon at Phindys Place... you could win $25 to spend at Michael's

Tonight, at 8pm (12:PST) I'm really excited to be holding a Cardathon for Phindy O'Neill who is celebrating over 500 followers on Papercraftplanet. You need some basic supplies to play along, the photo shows the image I've used, with some DPs to go with it:
  • a 5 x 7 card blank
  • Your Phindy image, printed out no bigger than around 3 3/4" square (that's about 9.5 cm). Feel free to colour your image ahead of time, when you have chosen your DPs and embellishments from your stash and you know what colourway you want to work with.
  • Scraps of 2 plain and 2 patterned cardstock. Nothing will be cut larger than 5 x 7". If you are like me and you like to mat the layers of your card as you go, you might need a bit more plain cardstock to mat your layers with.
  • Some ribbon - enough to go around your card and tie a bow.
  • 3 brads or gems.
  • Sentiment for your card - you don't need a sentiment on your card, sometimes it's useful to leave it off and put the right one on when you are ready to use the card - but if you want to use one, have it printed or stamped ready so that you can put it on your finished masterpiece :o)

Hopefully you should have all these ingredients in your craft stash, if not feel free to improvise. If you don't have a Phindy image yet, then why not?! Time to get shopping or check out Phindy's generous freebies. Please do join us in a couple of hours if you can, over at Papercraftplanet
