This week our challenge for you is to 'Create a card for a boy or man'.  I know that I for one am always short on cards for guys in my stash!

This week we are also saying goodbye to a few of our fellow Sundae Girls.  We would like to thank Nana and France for all of their hard work and beautiful creations during their time with us.  We have truly enjoyed getting to know both of you!  Please stop by their blogs and leave them some love... it takes a considerable amount of time and commitment to comment on your challenge entries each week!

Also, Wendy will temporarily be participating just once a month for the next few months.  Our teammate Danielle is taking a temporary hiatus but will be back with us soon!

If you missed our post yesterday, we have four new Sundae Girls joining us as of tomorrow!  I can't wait to see their creations next Sunday!

Paper Sundaes Challenge #39 - A Change of Season

Happy Sunday!  Welcome to Paper Sundaes Challenge #39 sponsored by Paper Jewels!  


Paper Jewels is near and dear to our hearts here at Paper Sundaes, because it is owned by a past DT member here at Paper Sundaes!  Jenny is generously providing our random winner this week with this wonderful CC Designs stamp set.  I wish I was eligible to enter!


Paper Jewels has an amazing sale on right now on all of their Spesch stamps, at only $6.50 each!  Combine that with the free worldwide shipping on all orders over $50, and it's a fantastic deal!  Make sure you also check out the Clearance section, there are rubber stamps priced as low as $2.77!

This week our challenge for you is to create a card featuring A Change of Season!  This could include either seasons of the year, or a change of life.  Perhaps a wedding, new baby, or even a condolence card.


A couple of requests from our DT:
Please be sure to read the rules at the bottom of this post!  Entries that do not follow the rules, will NOT be eligible to win!!
Please consider turning off word verification!  On 300 entries, the DT leaves approximately anywhere from 750 to 1000 comments in all!  Imagine the time involved, then add in word verification... Christine (me!  lol) gets grumpy :D
