Lots and lots and lots of.....well, Information!!

Cardmaker Magazine CARD CROP
We're gearing up for our second Card Crop over at Cardmaker Magazine! That means we've been creating challenges and games for all of you to play online for the next week. Starting tomorrow morning, there will be at least 4 challenges and two games and then it just gets better every day. The neat thing about a Crop is that you can play 24/7 so there isn't any immediate time constraint on you to complete a challenge. (Well, I think there's a time limit on a couple of games. Follow the blinkie on the right for more information.)

All the challenges and games will be posted over the next 3 days - Thursday, Friday and Saturday. You have until midnight Friday, May 1, 2009, to upload your version of the challenges and your answers to most of the games. See?! You really DO have a lot of time to play.

I am a hostess so I've spent a good amount of time on my two challenges and games. I do hope I can convince you to play! It's fun, only slightly educational, and cost effective since most of us already have on hand what it takes to play! The only requirement is that you must register with the site, but it's FREE, so go ahead and play! I challenge you!!
