Arrow World Card Day - Sat., Oct. 1st - *BUT STARTS NOW*

It’s time to let you all in on all the fun we have planned for World Card Day on Saturday, October 1...and some of it starts RIGHT NOW so be sure to read on.

Paper Wishes has given the swaps team 3 gift certificates this year for WCD activities on the message board, so we’ve planned an activity for each gift certificate, and each activity will run for several days instead of just on Saturday. We’re hoping this lets more of you participate this way. PLUS, we have some special fun planned JUST for Saturday and so we hope you will also come online and play on Saturday.

WAYS TO WIN A PAPER WISHES GIFT CERTIFICATE:

1) A special challenge will be posted MONDAY, September 26, which will have to be completed by midnight US Pacific time on Monday, October 3. Paper Wishes staff will be judging this one, and the winner of this challenge will win a $25 gift certificate from Paper Wishes.

2) BINGO! Nancy will post this year’s WCD Bingo Card on Friday morning. Deadline for completion on this one is also midnight US Pacific time on Monday, October 3. You can enter more than once, but each Bingo line you choose requires a new card to be made and posted. Winner will be randomly drawn from all the entries and will receive a $15 PW gift certificate.

3) PICK & CREATE! THIS ONE STARTS RIGHT NOW!!! This is always one of our most popular activities so we hope you will all enjoy it again this year.
.....The categories for pick & create are listed below. Each item you pick will correspond to certain techniques or elements that you will include in your card. There’s a twist, though: you will select the elements for your project before you know what they represent. And the time to pick is NOW: MAKE YOUR CHOICES AND POST THEM HERE ON THIS THREAD – YOU CAN POST YOUR CHOICES FROM RIGHT NOW UNTIL MIDNIGHT US PACIFIC TIME ON THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 29. (You may choose more than one set but you must make a new card for each group of course!)
.....THEN come back to the board FRIDAY MORNING-September 30, when Nancy will post what each of your selections represents. You will have until midnight US Pacific time on Monday, October 3 to complete your projects for this challenge. Winner will be randomly drawn from all the etnries and will receive a $15 PW gift certificate.

HERE ARE THE PICK & CREATE CATEGORIES; CHOOSE ONE FROM **each** GROUP and post your selections here. You can do more than one, but you must make a separate card for each group of choices:

Halloween Creatures
Witches
Zombies
Ghosts
Black Cats
Jack O Lanterns

Halloween Treats
Candy Corn
Popcorn Balls
Chocolate!
Lollipops
Gummy Worms
Wax Lips

Halloween/Fall Decorations
Leaves
Indian Corn
Pumpkins
Corn Stalks
Chrysanthemums

SATURDAY ACTIVITIES ONLY

There will be a Swaps Team member acting as ‘hostess’ and online between 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. EAST COAST time (so 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Central time, and 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. West Coast time). We will have 4 separate challenges and chances to win a prize for each that will be posted at specific times on Saturday (schedule below). Prizes are being donated by your Swaps Team. For each of these challenges, your project has to be completed ON SATURDAY and each must be done before the next challenge is posted!

TIME ZONE // CHALLENGES WILL POST AT // LAST CHALLENGE ENDS:
East Coast //10 am – 1 pm – 4 pm – 7 pm // 10 PM
Central // 9 am – Noon – 3 pm – 6 pm // 9 PM
West Coast// 7 am – 10 am – 1 pm – 4 pm // 7 PM

And last but not least, there will probably be some Swaps Team madness spur-of-the-moment quickie challenges thrown out there (depending on how quickly everyone gets their projects done for the 4 scheduled challenges). These spur-of-the-moment challenges won’t win a prize, but will get another entry into the regular October drawing for the monthly PW gift certificate of $15!

AND THAT’S NOT ALL! Be sure to check out the Paper Wishes blog on Monday, where a separate contest will be hosted by Paper Wishes for yet ANOTHER chance to win a PW gift certificate!! WOO-HOOOOOO!

COME PLAY WITH US!
