Welcome to Made Especially For You's 
Telephone Blog Hop!

If you've never heard of the "Telephone" game it's a game most often played by kids that simulates how a story can change from person to person, or how a rumor can start. For example, I may tell Susie that at lunch today I had a peanut butter sandwich, an apple, and some milk, and she may go tell Jackie that I had a turkey sandwich, an apple, and some milk. Although only one small detail was changed, over time the entire story can change. The game is played by starting with a story and whispering it from one person to the next in a circle and seeing how the story changed once the last person has told it. 

We decided to play this game as a design team, not with stories, but with cards! Our DT leader Ashley started with a photo of a card, emailed it to someone, who then created a card based off her card, and sent a photo of it to the next person. As a design team, this is the first time we're seeing the progression of the cards! 

                                             Here is the photo of the card I received from
   And here is the card I created inspired by her card:    

My inspiration for this card came from Cyndy's Happy Birthday.
With her Duck which was  very childish, so I decided that it had to be for a
 childs birthday card. So I too went with "Celebrate" for a childres birthday 
I beleive that I am on the right track with a childs birthday. This has been 
allot of fun. I have never played the telephone game, but doing it with a card
theme has really been fun. it's going to be exciting to see what everyone else 
came up with.
