They don't all have to be Christmas themed! I made a birthday themed project for yesterday's WT challenge, and the sketch and colour challenges can certainly be whatever you want, always. Last week's Free 4 All was any holiday OTHER than Christmas (and Chanukkah), so you could have made Valentine's or St. Patrick's Day or Easter. You can still play along with that challenge, though you won't get as many comments since the new challenge went up today.
You can always use older challenges for inspiration!!

I think some hostesses go with a Christmas theme at this time of year because many people still need a few last-minute Christmas-related cards and tags and so on. I need to make more tags!!! So I love that this week's Free 4 All is holiday tags; I just need time.

Also remember that while the VSN challenge (tonight and tomorrow) is titled "Frozen", not all the challenges have to be Christmas themed, some of them could just be cards suitable for a winter birthday. I know some of them wouldn't even need to have a winter theme, if there's a colour challenge or a technique.

We have more than 4400 daily challenges posted in the challenge forum - have you done all of those? That doesn't even count the archive of Virtual Stamp Night, Dare to Get Dirty and Hope You Can Cling To challenge, or the thousands of challenges in the scrapbooking forum.

I'm going to bet there's something there that will inspire a birthday card if you want to make one

That's what's great about a forum is that big long archive you can always dip into when you need an idea.

Color challenges are my favorite, and I try to them (before others) even if not in order or "on time." I LOVE that you can pull up any challenge from the past. Unlike blog challenges which generally have deadlines, challenges here on SCS are always ongoing

Sometimes many people, including me, will combine the Tuesday color challenge with the Wednesday sketch.

There are so many wonderful challenges on this site...they are what has helped me grow as a stamper/card maker. You can make holiday cards any time, birthday cards anytime...

unless the challenge is for a specific theme, the sky is the limit!
