It's amazing to look back isn't it?

What if we always made a card a day?

And MAILED it?

Got all my links done last night. Always feel kind of sad when it's over. Like your idea to make and mail a card per day Lydia. Great idea!

I'm really stressing, because I no longer have the excuse (got to get these HYCCT challenges finished) to avoid cleaning up my craft room. Getting very close to an avalanche!

Thanks to all the hostesses, this has once again been a blast.

I got my box of cards mailed out Priority Mail on Tuesday - so happy to have them on their way! Wish I would have taken a pic, but I was in a hurry. It's so fun to see the photos of cards spread out in all their glory! This has been so rewarding - so pleased to have been able to play and to complete each wonderful challenge.

On another note, I did PM scrapbooknut1 about her links not working in the Queens thread (post 37). Did anyone else? I hope she sees it and gets it corrected! She indicates she is a cancer patient herself in her siggy line, so it would be even more unhappy if she is disqualified from the prize drawings.

Well, I just uploaded the last card I could get finished for this years challenge. I wasn't able to finish 2 of the challenges. I just ran out of time. I was away for a week and then I was sick for a week. So that put me so far behind. I work feverishly the past week and managed to complete 34 of the challenges.

Now I have to get them ready for mailing.

Yes, I pmd her also...and read her siggy...it would be sad to be disqualified and I see that the link is now locked ...


The reward isn't suppose to be the prizes...but...I am human and would be glad to win from any one of the sponsors...

I thought it was 11:59 PM, that's what the FAQs says! I just hopped on to upload my last card before work & was getting a that directory doesn't exist message so popped over here to see what was up! Really!? sniff, sniff. I finished it around 2am, took pics but figured I had till about midnight, well, 9pm with the time difference.

Someone had even asked about the challenges saying noon but FAQs saying midnight & the reply was midnight (#80 & #81). Dang. Well, I know I finished all the challenges. And this place is a disaster area. Now I have a few more minutes (no queen posting) before I need to run off to work to walk the dog, who's been letting me know I've neglected her these past 2 weeks

Sigh, now maybe tonight I'll have time to peruse the galleries and get to bed before 3am! ♥

Good thing since I have one to go - LOL.

Well, the good news is that I'm going to have a really clean kitchen when all is said &done but it has been a long haul! I still have a few cupboards to finish up. The laundry room was bug free! I still went through all the shelves & did a good clean out. Still have the closet &undersink in both laundry room &kitchen to go. Ugh it feels like it will never end &I didn't sleep well last night. I will have earned some stamping time this wknd for sure!
DH is shopping for a new laptop &then I'll inherit his old one. Meanwhile I'm making do with my Nook so I'm not in the gallery much-too hard to see &touchscreens aren't my friend.

Hi all you crafty people! I just stamped every envelope to make them prettiful, found a new pink Hawaii breast cancer awareness pen (had my mammo 2 weeks ago) to include with the altered notepad, and carefully placed each card with matching envelope into cellophane bag (40 cards), then gently packed into Priority Mail Box - Yahoooooeeeeeee! I am so done! Stick a fork in me finished :* And off to Texas it goes ♥ It was great for me to taste completion in this first HYCCT playground for me and thanks for letting me participate ♥ Aloha everyone!

I bet that's a lot of work for your team, l'm looking forward to doing the challenges again that I've neglected.

Have fun & thanks again for another great year. I've even told people on some FB card groups & sent them the link, next year they said they want to join this card drive.

Can't wait until you torture us, you're good at that!

Hugs,
Connie

Lydia, I'm sorry for my brain. This is my first time...what is a queen and what do you mean you don't count the keyword. I have the keyword on my photos; do I need more?

Thanks for being patient with me.

Thanks to the extended deadline, I was able to get 4 more cards done! I counted them after that, and I actually got 20 done out of the 36 challenges. If I hadn't been ill in the middle of the month I could have gotten them all! Well, that will be my goal for next year

Thanks to everyone who had a part in this wonderful challenge!

For a super awesome reminder of why we do these challenges, check out this breast cancer patient doing a spontaneous OR dance with her surgical team.

This Woman Was About To Go In For Surgery. What She Did Moments Before Was Awesome.

I hunted around and found the information, posted all of my cards in order. So sad I almost missed that part. It can be so rough being a newbie and a sick person living in a fast and healthy world :/

Take good care all ♥ rosy

So true,i had a most rewarding experience making the cards & using everything instead if it just sitting on a shelf & learning so much just by seeing such beautiful creations in the gallery. Hopefull my cards got to the Mater Foundation on friday. Cheers

I'm so glad I was able to participate in the challenges this year.

My neighbor has been in an out of the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center, but she's doing well with her treatments.

And I just found out this week that my Tito Ben is dying from Stage 5 Lung Cancer.

So as a friend and relative of cancer patients and survivors I know these cards are greatly appreciated.

Default Package enroute

Yay!!!! I'm so happy....my package just took off from doo-dah headed to Houston. I can't wait to see mail room pics from Houston again this yr....I didn't count how many Aussie's we had playing along but with those of us sending extra cards, I'm sure we covered that amount so that the full gallery count and more will be headed down..... And I hope Edna checks in with a total count of the ones going to Brisbane too...

I'm also happy because:

I didn't use any new papers unless had nothing that would work, instead used from the scrap box so those 2 bins now actually fit in their cubby!!

I went through all the stash pulling out cards here and there to add to my pile and ended up with 95 cards and 3 altered notebooks. And boxes that now can be looked through to find a card without splitting the sides of the box, and have room for more cards that I won't get mailed.

Doing these challenges I've used lots of stamps I had never used, and while working my way through my binders to find stamps, found that I mostly like the way I have them separated so I can now start stamping reference sheets for each page.


I've learned that I can actually do CAS cards without a panic attack at all that white space

I learned that I really can do 6-7 cards in a 24 hr period.....Bring it on DTGD....I will get it all done next time.

And I'm really really happy because I didn't have to pay for shipping. When I took my box into PO, the gals asked me where this box was going (thinking Iraq or Afghanistan) and when I told them they were full of questions and about passed out when I told them that there would likely be over 5,000 cards going down. One of the gals is a survivor and she insisted on paying my postage and then came around the counter and gave me a big hug. She said to say thanks to all your "stamping friends" too.

I can actually see the carpet under the table again to see what color it is

And I'm really happy that Holly has hot chocolate and fresh cookies for the non-queens picnic...I heard whispers that there were snicker-doodles...yummy...me looooove snickers...

I just have to agree with everything you said and add: I can do it in the stifling heat and humidity of Hawai'i's warmest time of year, by working a bit in the morning, and after the sun goes down, lots of fans on, and several cool showers during the day. Congrats to everyone to played, whether a little or a lot!!!!

Hi ladies and gents,

I don't know about the rest of you, but as I read through everyone's accomplishments and see the beautiful cards for HYCCT, I feel choked up and teary-eyed. Does anyone else?

It was my first time participating, just like many of you. It was a month-long difficult race to participate in, learn, keep up, and especially finish. The 3 cards on the last day felt like I tripped over a speed bump LOL. Wasn't expecting that! But like Sheri said, I feel much stronger to meet challenges.

Thank you to everyone who left me those sweet, encouraging comments on my cards. It truly helped me emotionally to keep on going. You all are great people and I am enjoying learning your names and personalities.

So, thank you again to everyone, and to all who work behind the scenes to make SCS and HYCCT fly!

much aloha to you ♥
rosy

Now I have to get them ready for mailing.
Good for you Mary in getting that many done. I was sick with a sinus thing for part of October also. The creativity just wasn't there for awhile. But remember that every single one of your cards will bless someone.

Now, I'm catching up on Christmas (CCC13) cards. Uploaded two sets today. Two more to go.
