St. Patrick's Day Card w/ Twine & A GIVEAWAY!

It's Monday, which means it's time for a new weekly challenge here at Made Especially For You! Since it's the first week of the month, it's theme week, which means the design team has come up with a 'theme of the month' for your cards to be inspired by, along with using a certain item or product.

The challenge this week is to create a St. Patrick's Day card featuring twine!

I wish I could use twine on my cards more often, but I haven't exactly mastered the technique of applying it. :/ I'm learning, though! I show a close-up of the twine I used on my card below so you can actually see it's there, I know it's hard to tell in the other pictures. Both the sentiment and the shamrocks are digis leftover from last week's sponsor, The Cutting Cafe

To enter the challenge, all you have to do is link up your card here on the 'Weekly Challenge' page. One randomly chosen winner will receive four non-colored images of their choice from our wonderful sponsor Meljen's Designs and will also be offered a guest designer position for the week of March 26th. Don't forget that all participants also have the opportunity to be in the 'Top Three' and have their cards displayed here on the blog and also receive a badge to display on their blogs!
Meljen's Designs is a lovely stamp company owned and illustrated by Melissa Jenkins. She illustrates whimsical rubber and digital images inspired by her kids and family. Meljen's Designs has new releases along with a new challenge every Thursday, freebies every Monday and a Guest Designer each month at the Meljen's Designs Blog. Please visit the Meljen's Designs line of stamps at our store HERE to browse through all of Melissa's lovely designs! You can also see Melissa's rubber stamps at her corner of Whimsy Stamps, too!

And now for the giveaway! Throughout the month of March, you have unlimited opportunities to enter to win the Spring Fever Cricut cartridge being given away by our awesome Sponsor Coordinator and Sketch Designer, Beckie from Just B Creative Crazy. Here are the guidelines for the giveaway:
- You will receive one entry for every card you enter in our weekly challenges (you can enter as many cards as you want for each challenge as long as they each have their own post on your blog)
- You will receive one entry for liking the Made Especially For You Facebook page
- You will receive one entry for every friend you get to link up to one of our challenges (your friend must let us know in their post that they have linked up because of you, otherwise we can't count it)

The information for the giveaway will always be posted on the Weekly Challenge page through the month of March. 

The winner of the cartridge will be randomly chosen and announced on Monday April 2nd. This cartridge will also be featured in our Do You Speak Cricut? Saturday cartridge review on Saturday March 24th. 

We hope to see you playing along with us! :)
