Pick a Card, Any Card

Pick a Card, Any Card

Hi there, Layle with you today for another round of Pick a Card, Any Card!

Each month, 5 of our design team members and I will be picking one of our favorite Simple Stories or SN@P! 3x4 or 4x6 cards and sharing them with you - in more ways than one!  We've introduced so many GREAT cards over the last few years that I thought it would be fun to share some of our favorite cards each month, tell you why they're our favorites and then give you a chance to win not only the specific cards that we picked, but the other cards they're paired up with as part of the set (more on that fun giveaway at the end of this post)!

If you missed last month's picks, you can see them here.

To kick off this month's version of Pick a Card, Any Card, here's one of my favorites -

This card is one of the 3x4 Cards from our new School SN@P! Set.  I just love the 'HELLO' on the display - it reminds me of being a kid and trying to make up words on the calculator!

Next up is Rebecca Keppel with this 4x6 card from our Good Day Sunshine SN@P! Cards -

When I asked Rebecca why she choose this particular card, she said -

My kids are in their 3rd week of school already, so I am missing and remembering our summer and this card says it all! Plus I love the rainbow gradient from the Good Day Sunshine collection that is featured as the background of this card. And the flip side? Diagonal stripes in teal, my favorite color. This card has it all for me :)

Shellye McDaniel chose this 4x6 card from the Cozy Christmas 4x6 Horiztonal Elements -

When I asked Shellye why she chose this card, she said -

I love the mix of simple, real-life elements mixed in with graphic design; you will see this a lot throughout the newest Simple Stories Collections!  This particular card really stood out to me:  I love the pop of red from the ornament, that little bit of tree branch poking out, the muted background and the various fun fonts...it truly looks like an old photo made new again with a few words sprinkled over the top!  And the sentiment is perfect for a card, which makes it perfect for my crafting.

Teri Anderson selected this 3x4 card from the Cat SN@P! Set -

According to Teri -

Ever see something and just spontaneously start giggling? Yep. That's this card for me. That sweet yet devilish cat is just the best. And even though I don't even have a cat, I totally plan on using this card on a page to document my dog's love/hate relationship with the neighborhood kitties.

Next up is Vicki Boutin with this 3x4 card from our new Seasons SN@P! Set -

When I asked Vicki why she selected this card, she said -

This card is a fav because I love color palette and the look on that little snowman's face is too cute.  I can see myself using this card for so many different things! 

Last up this month is Wendy Antenucci with this 4x6 card from the Legacy SN@P! Cards -

According to Wendy -

I LOVE the cards from the Legacy collection!  The sayings on these cards are why I scrapbook.  How about the card, Celebrate your Life honor those that made it possible?  or this one, this is what matters most?  The Legacy collection is the collection that will really make pages that are lasting and will impact the future generation.  These cards will not only tell who you are, but who your family is and what you stand for.

So, what do you think?  How about those picks - pretty fun, right?!

OK, now to more good stuff.  At the beginning of this post I mentioned something about a giveaway!  Enter via the Rafflecopter widget below by end of day Saturday, September 6th telling me which of our 6 cards is your favorite and why.  On Sunday the 14th I'll draw one random lucky winner to win not only the cards we selected, but the rest of the cards that are included with each package the cards are from  - that's 198 fabulous Simple Stories cards; you can see all of the cards one random lucky will win under the Supplies section below!
