I received an update newsletter from Blog Podium about the goings on for next weeks conference. One of the items in the newsletter was a little reminder and challenge about our personal business cards. There is going to be a prize for the winner with the most effective and appropriate business card to spend an afternoon with Chatelaine Home Editor Emma Reddington. That would be fun! So I have begun researching to get inspired to update my business card.

I made these using veneer sheets. I painted the background white and mod podged beautiful hand made paper on the front. I used my old typewriter on the back as well a really awesome stamp my mom gave me from when she was a kid. This card screams hand made!!
I think for this challenge I am going to focus on mehker social (my freelance online marketing business) because I don’t have a card yet and it is already on my to-do list. Plus I am going to this event to gain knowledge for my business. My challenge is to tell people I am an expert at amplifying their brand and I do this using social tools and networking online. This should be interesting… I will preview some sketch ideas later this weekend.
