Weekly Cards

For awhile now I've been inspired by daily or weekly art cards. These are basically just altered playing cards that reflect you and your daily or weekly life. See here and here and here for a few examples. As much as I love the idea of daily cards, I just don't think I can keep it up. I already feel bad for falling behind in other areas, so I think a weekly card better suits me. Originally my plan was to start on my 30th birthday. I asked Jessie and Andrea to play along and gave them each a pack of cards. Due to schedules and our crazy lives, we are just starting the cards this week...2 weeks after my birthday. It's pretty much anything goes with these cards, but we will be taking turns giving prompts and challenges. We would love for other people to play along with us. I know I have lots of blog lurkers out there with creative spirits who should play along....hint, hint. Let us know if you want to play or post links to your cards on one of our blogs. Here's my first card...we decided it should be a sort of title card to our deck of 52. Enjoy and come play with us!

Very cute! I have decided to play along too. I have never done this a challenge like this before so I am very excited. I will post mine sometime this week. My blog is password protect but feel free to email me and I will get you the password.

Sorry, excuse the extra "this" in the previous comment. I meant to say I have never done a challenge like this before...I am so bad about proofing reading until after I publish a comment :0)

Hey there ... I'm so confused already ... and now that we have more "players" (how fun is that) we might need to clarify or do a sumamry post or something.

I just sent you and Jess and e-mail so no need to re-cap here, but I did do my intro card, I just am unclear on the posting day and when we pick the next theme.

Love your card, it is so perfectly you. No wonder you stuck with the black & white deck, LOL. SO you could sass it up with red ... shocking!!

Thanks for doing this, it's going to be so fun!
