Oh we love to have newbies join us!!!
First let me put you at ease....you do not have to play "live" ....you actually have a few days to play along and upload your challenge cards!!! All you need to do is make sure you made your card in the 45 minute time limit.....you don't have to include planning or gathering your supplies
.....and then when you upload your card to the gallery here at Splitcoast just use the proper keyword that is listed in each challenge thread so the hostess can easily find all of her challenge participants.
The challenges are unique to go with the theme....but allow for some fun variations too. So if you follow along the general challenge rule for that challenge you'll be fine!
