"Pick Your Pal" World Card Making Day Challenge!

Happy World Card Making Day ("WCMD")!!! Today is a day set aside worldwide to celebrate our craft. Naturally we couldn't let it pass us by without a special event to celebrate! So here's what we've got for you today: "Pick Your Pal" Tic-Tac-Toe!



As you can see, we've created a fun game board for you. (Click on it to enlarge it if you need to!) How do you play? Easy-peasy!


1. Choose a row on the Tic-Tac-Toe board, make a card using one of our digis that matches that row, share it on your blog or public gallery, and then link it up to our WCMD challenge post using the linky tool below. No back-linking please. You must create a new card for this challenge.
2. Each numbered row on the Tic-Tac-Toe card coordinates to a "Pal" digi that you will receive as a prize for completing that row. There are a total of eight "Pal" digis that you can win, including four from our "Pumpkin Pals" set...

...and four from our brand new, not-yet-in-the-shop "Stocking Pals" set!

3. When you link up your card, please state which row number you followed to create it, and verify that your email address is 100% correct in the link-up so that Deedee can email you your prize!
4. You may participate multiple times to get multiple digis. Each entry must be linked separately, even if you include them in a single blog or gallery post.
5. If you complete the whole Tic-Tac-Toe card ("Blackout") via one card OR by completing three cards representing either all three vertical rows or all three horizontal rows, you will receive both full sets including the additional elements shown in the photos above!
6. In addition to the "Pal" digi prizes shown above, we will also have TWO additional prize drawings at the end of the challenge:
  • One entrant will win a spot as our Guest Designer here on the blog for the month of November! Now, we know that some of you would not be interested in this, so to make sure that we're only drawing from those who are, please, if you are interested in entering this drawing, remember to put "GDT" next to your name in your link-up(s).
  • We will draw for a number between "1" and "8". Everyone who entered a card for that number of row on the Tic-Tac-Toe card will win a $10 gift code to the shop! AND...those who achieved a "Blackout" on the board will automatically get a gift code!
7. DEADLINE: You have until Friday, 16 October, 2015 to complete this challenge. Drawing winners will be announced here on Saturday, 17 October, 2015.

Need a little inspiration to get you started? Here's a little from our team!

  1. I'm having trouble reading some of the squares on the Tic Tac Toe board. My eyesight isn't the best and when I save it and try to enlarge it, the letters go all fuzzy. Can someone please help me out with what it says. Thanks.

  2. This looks like a lot of fun! I have a couple questions. First...I just posted a card on my blog yesterday using a Deedee's digi that would fit the criteria of one of the rows. I didn't see a rule on backlinking so I'm wondering if I could edit my post and link it up? Second... you don't mention that Deedee's Digis must be used to enter, except for the upper right square, could you please clarify. Thanks, I would love to play along but need some guidance.

  4. I followed row 5 for my card, but I already have the Pumpkin Pals set, so you don't have to send me the digi! :) Happy WCMD!! ~ Tricia
