Join us in Spreading the #Cre8time Love! Anything But a Card Challenges Design Team Call

Good Morning All! This week we are taking a little break from our normal schedule of things for a special announcement. Next month, Anything But a Card Challenges will be celebrating our 2-year Blogiversary. ABAC is a unique and special entity as we celebrate creating in all areas except cardmaking... and in celebration of this milestone – we want to GROW and add to our design team of amazing inspiring creatives. We have an international team of artists who work in various media – delighting and intriguing you while exploring our challenge themes with gusto and open eyes.

Do you love to create?

Do you play along with the ABAC Challenges?

Do you love to share your creations with others
and being part of the creative community?

Do you love creating projects

If you answer yes to any or all of these questions...
Then you should be a part of ABAC!

ABAC has no sponsors + no expectations + no having to use particular stuff! No Rules and a variety of themes and possible makes = doing projects you REALLY want to do! We are all about CREATING and SHARING... ABAC is all inclusive – and all levels of expertise are welcome too. If you love to create everything under the sun that is NOT CARDS... throw your hat in and apply!

Anything But a Card Challenges believes that the creative process should be fun! If you don't enjoy your art, why are you doing it? Sometimes we tend to get so caught up in producing that we forget to enjoy the process! Also, its so important to carve out just a little piece of time that is dedicated to just letting your muse play... creating anything and everything – EXCEPT CARDS.

REQUIREMENTS: Anything But a Card Challenges has one three-week long challenge per month. The 4th week we feature one of our fabulous creatives with an "Artist Spotlight" to start the month of with a BURST of Creative Inspiration who will propose a new "Mini Challenge" which goes for one week. And on the rare occasion we have a 5th Sunday "Five" mini-challenge to mix things up and keep our weeks in order.

Designers are required to create one project a month for main challenge and occasional extra week challenge; promote the challenges via personal blog and social media; and commenting on challenge participants and voting on top three. The ABAC design team is inspiring, friendly, supportive and love a great challenge! The ABAC team is a great opportunity to have your work shown to the global creative community.
