365 Cards Week: The Random Fun Challenge

Oh my friends! The parade of challenges continues in our week-long celebration of the long-awaited arrival of the moxie fab special issue, 365 Cards.


With an inspiring card to make for every day of the year, this stellar issue has cards for all the holidays such as Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Halloween, and Christmas as well as ideas for all the occasions we like to paper craft including thank you, sympathy, friendship, encouragement, and just because. But wait! There's more! We've also got TONS O' fun cards for wacky holidays and silly celebrations like the ones Susan outlined in this post earlier this week.

Today I'd like to continue our week of challenges in that same sense of fun and celebration by introducing the Random Fun Challenge. Let's break out the crazy, shall we? Check it:

Button Day is November 16:

 Button Thanks Card by Angela Hathikhanavala, p. 137

Moxie Fab Alert: I don't know about you, but this just seems like a day that was created with paper crafters in mind! As if we needed an excuse to break out the buttons!

Mustache Month is March:

I {Heart} Mustaches Card by Cassi Tramm, p. 40

Moxie Fab Alert: Mustache Month started as an Air Force tradition to poke fun at facial hair regulations and grew into a charity fund raiser. Interesting, but I'm just glad that we have an excuse to put these trendy icons on our cards!

National Margarita Day is February 22:

Yours or Mine Card by Stephanie Washburn, p. 28

Moxie Fab Alert: Get out! An official day to celebrate one of my favorite icy concoctions? I'll drink to that!

Raise your hand if you're chomping at the bit to get started on this fun challenge, then proceed as follows:
  • Create a paper crafted card that incorporates a button(s), a mustache(s), or an alcoholic beverage.
  • Upload it to your blog, click on the title of that post, copy the URL, and add it to Mr. Linky below.
  • Tell your readers that you've created your project for the Random Fun Challenge in the Moxie Fab World and link it back to this post to encourage your readers to play along as well.
  • If you don't have a blog, upload your project to this flickr gallery, copy the URL to your project, and add it to Mr. Linky below.
  • Upload your projects by midnight EST on Monday, December 12.
  • The winning entries will be shown on this blog on Wednesday, December 14 and will receive an "I'm Moxie Fab" challenge winner button as well as a copy of 365 Cards.
I'm always up for some random fun!
