Day 3! In case you missed it; It’s that time again, A-Z Challenge season! This month I am keeping things simple, sharing makes, past and present, as well as a few I’ll try to create just for the challenge! I am still continuing with all the fun, this time, with some handmade congratulations cards!
Each post I will try to share around five or six pics of handmade cards, using different styles, methods and elements. For an added challenge, I will be working entirely from my craft stash! (I do have a ridiculous amount of papers, embelishments and what not to use!)
The April A-Z Challenge
What is it all about? Basically posting every day throughout April, except Sundays. Following the alphabet, whether keeping to a theme or otherwise. It’s a great challenge, and one of my favourite parts is meeting other bloggers!

An A-Z of Handmade Cards
This year for MY April A-Z Challenge; I have chosen a running theme of handmade cards. Although I make cards for every occasion, it is rare these days, for me to actually share them! So throughout April I will be sharing cards I have made, to both share, and perhaps inspire others to give card making a try! I will endeavour to use a variety of creative methods, covering many every-day events.
Congratulations is definitely an open sentiment; so I tried to cover a few bases, as well as having a little bit of fun with this handful. I could certainly have made more cards under this heading, although we have quite a way to go yet!
If you’d like any of the cards from the challenge, get in touch… We could sort something out maybe! Either contact me by email or message me on one of the socials (all links at the bottom of the page).
It was nice to make some wholly separate cards to use up some of my stash, I have far too many odd sentiment stickers in my collection! Some of the papers and elements I have are totally cute, and should definitely be used, and not sat in storage!
There are of course so many more reasons to congratulate people! It is fun thinking of ideas sometimes… can you think of any others?
Looking for a special handmade gift? Head on over to this post.
I hope you will join me throughout the month for the challenge, and of course, I would love to hear from you in the comments below. Feeel free to share your favourite card featured, or a related story perhaps! If you’re taking part in the challenge, I’d love to visit, but please leave a relevant comment if leaving a link.
