Congrats Michelle! Now that my room is finished, I will have to pay more attention to the challenges. I am somewht confused between this thread and some others.

Thank you everyone for your kind comments on my room. I really am enjoying it. Don't want to do anything else but be down here!

Unually I just come down in the evenings and work while DH watches sports in the other room. Real easy to go over and see when he yells "come look at this replay," etc. Same thing when I make something, take it over and show him. Pretty good set up.

Sharon

Today, January 23rd is National Handwriting Day.

So your challenge for this week is to make a card to send to someone. The difference between this week and the first week's challenge....

It can be a simple Thank You, Thinking of You or Just a Note
AND
The sentiment on the front should be handwritten - NOT STAMPED. You can stamp images all you want, but HANDWRITE the sentiment on the FRONT..

Have fun!
Well, I thought I had done it, but not quite! I only wrote in a partial sentiment. Kelly do you give partial credit? Just kidding. I'll try again!

Love this card, Toni! I need to do some swaps for a demonstrator meeting tomorrow and I think I might just case it if you don't mind. Left you some love!

I have a question. If I do the sketch challenge that was issued in Jan. , but in Feb, do I get in a drawing? Or do I have to do a Feb challenge for Feb? LOL I am sorry for being such a dork about all this.

Congrats Michelle!

My updated totals are in my sig. I finished a month of my card-a-day challenge and blog! I am psyched.

On the downside, big spree at the M store last weekend so I'm back in the hole, but not too far down. And my points from exercising/losing weight in January: $0!!! Pretty pathetic. Wish I loved getting up and moving as much as I love sitting down and reading or crafting.

but on the plus side, I think this month's card production surpasses all of last year already!

And I'm looking forward to doing more challenges. I have been in the habit of checking and often doing the scheduled daily challenges that have their own threads/links in the forum overview, but haven't checked in here enough, otherwise I would have been able to submit to both the handwriting challenge and the challenge from last Monday. I love sketch challenges!

I added some incentives to my list of things I pay myself for. Making a gift for someone from my card supplies: $2.00. Mailing out a card to someone: $.50 And I'm about to start trying to sell some cards (since I have a HUGE stack of Valentine cards now) and will give myself $1 to spend for every card sold.

Enough fiddling around here, I got some crafting to do!

I racked up some earnings last night. I had a demonstrator meeting today with my upline and we were swapping too. I ended up making 19 cards last night. I made 10 of one card, eight of another and one of a third card. I'll post links when I get them uploaded.

Yeah, Michaels was absolutely NUTS Saturday. Gail said Friday was a nightmare. They thought they were going to need traffic control in the parking lot! LOL They caught the booboo with corporate as soon as they realized it wasn't a forged coupon LOL

First off, you can't be a dork.. that's VikkiJo's proud crown

And you can do the challenges any time. But to qualify for the drawing, they have to be done in that month. So February is starting with new challenges and new chances to win something.

Michelle will be taking care of the Feb. prize package for me this time around And I know how she packs a package so you might want to do ALL the February challenges and watch for any BONUS points available on a challenge. Without looking at the list, I can't remember if there are any for this month or not.

I know the spending spree. I just got home from 2 days in the city. Though, aside from some paper - and most of that was for a altered swap I'm in - I only purchased what I needed (except for 4 $1 stamps)

oooh, that would make an awesome Halloween card. You could even emboss the Tangerine Tango with the spider web folder. hmmmm, now I need to go make a card but will have to wait until tomorrow. BTW, I've decided that card is one for my workshops this month.

Here's a card I made for the handwriting challenge, a little late. It also covers a couple challenges in the All Occasions Card Challenge. I came across a small sack of postcards when I cleaned out my desk drawers last week. They are from my state of Montana. They make a very quick card.

Arrow S2S12F - Challenge + Bonus!

Welcome to our first challenge for the month of February. Remember, we're starting a clean slate for a chance to win prizes so have some FUN and use your STASH!

Today, February 6th marks a couple of things.
#1 - It is Compliment Day. So Share the love!

#2 - 112th Ann. Of the 100th Billion Crayola Crayon
The 100th Billion Crayola Crayon rolled off the belt on this date in 1966!

So here's your challenge...

And it's going to be a doozy!

I want you to think about the 8 basic colors in a box of crayons. Nope.. I'm not telling you what they are LOL

But I do want you to use AT LEAST 5 of them on your card.

BONUS chance at the February goodies if you use [COLOR="rgb(153, 50, 204)"]ALL 8[/COLOR].

Kelly, in case you don't know yet, Concord Crush will disappear May 31st. The five 2010-2011 In Colors retire then. BTW, SU's new catalog period will be June 1-May 31 beginning this year.

Great challenge Kelly! It just took me a second to find out the colors, but I probably could have guessed them too!

Interesting challenge, Kelly. I know the 8 colors. So, we're to use the rgb for al 8 colors, correct? Too bad I'm heading to work in a few minutes. I'd rather stay home and work on this challenge. Maybe I'll get this one done this week instead of next month.

Yes, I know. ::: sigh :::: We're also losing Pear Pizzaz, which I also love and use a lot. My order is going to include 2 packs of each color LOL

yes Debbie. You only HAVE to use 5 but if you want the BONUS entry into the drawing then you have to incorporate all 8. I look forward to seeing what you do.

Sharon, that's a lovely site. I haven't scrapbooked for a long time....hope to get back into it after I retire. Cards are a lot easier and quicker and something I need on an ongoing basis.
Michele, that is a beautiful card.
I just had to update my totals (usually only do it at the end of the month) but I am in the black now, and don't know how long I will stay there !

Great card, Michelle. When I saw the title, I thought it was going to have the Elementary School primary colors LOL Elegance is the perfect description though!

Michele, that is a beautiful card.
I just had to update my totals (usually only do it at the end of the month) but I am in the black now, and don't know how long I will stay there !
So you're saying 'enjoy it while it lasts'? LOL

Also, Sharon, I won't get to this months scrapbook challenge but please keep posting them here as I do want to get back to pages as soon as I have a couple other things caught up.

All right! I managed to make a card using all 8 original colours of the Crayola crayons. I didn't have this page open when I uploaded my card, so I got the Crayola milestone wrong....I thought it was their 100th anniversary. I hope y'all like my card. It was fun!

It's the first time I tried the melted crayon technique with the darker colors. I've done it with the lighter more transparent colors and then only with colors that compliment each other. It did turn out well, but a lot more vibrant than I had anticipated.

I loved your card, Ina. I left love in your gallery.

Well, thanks to scrapbooking challenges, and VSN and all the other challenges, I am now out of the red! I updated my totals in my siggy. Makes me feel so good. I think by keeping track, it is making me do more!
