I'll use my heart shape stamp from Flourishes and use a butterfly from some place else...it's the best I can do using what I have...and I will do that happily!


Hey, maybe I could draw my own butterfly and that wouldn't count against me!!!!

I went and looked...a bit overwhelming but I did follow a few links and debated about entering a few of the challenges but I can't remember which ones

Realistic...I don't have one so I am thinking a different animal...thinking the hunter is prepared...I have several animal choices with that thought process.

You have to resize the card very small and give it a unique name when you save it on your computer. I had issues when I was trying to upload last as well.

Last night it wouldn't even let me get to the "Upload a card" portion of the process. I hope being #149 will be beneficial to winning!!!!

That's a great challenge blog, never heard of it before. TFS!

What wasn't you?

Krapoppa as the image or for Krapoppa?

I didn't have a fruit or veggie to play along with last weeks flourishes, but am working on the natural theme now.

What wasn't you? The winner for the WAW challenge...so far my philosophy is...don't be first...but don't be at the end either...

Krapoppa as the image or for Krapoppa? krapoppa as the image...and maybe I will give it to him too! I'm thinking a bubble circle of his face...

I didn't have a fruit or veggie to play along with last weeks flourishes, but am working on the natural theme now.
Haven't had time to make many cards over the last week...and doesn't look hopeful until Saturday this week...but I'm planning a couple in my head...

I just uploaded a card for the Flourishes challenge...krapoppa had me tape it to the wall to get a picture because being who I am it didn't occur to me that the card shape I chose wasn't going to work with the diamond fold card!

Well...it worked when I taped it to the wall...don't know where you write inside the card but I followed the directions and made the card...putting a note inside will be the easy part I'm sure!

Did anyone notice I used my new Stardust Glitter Pen on the card for this challenge?

Yep, sure did and it was just LOVELY!

Kramomma, its lovely! I have my origami fold card base done, I made it yesterday. Still need to decorate it. This challenge is a harder one and for one stamp set, where as the nature challenge is for the entire release, I think I may do another Nature card today and hold off on finishing the folded card until tomorrow.

SHE should have known...but...BRAT wanted to play...so SHE let her...and look at what SHE got as a result!

Yes, the A.R.T. challenge blog is not vendor specific. Which is nice in one way that you can use anything you have, but it also means that it doesn't have the prizes that a vendor company gives out.

My problem is I am limited on vendor company choices...uhm...SU doesn't do challenges that I know of and would I have any set that is current?...and GKD my stamps are also very dated...then there is the one Flourishes set...and 2 PTI...but I have LOTS of SU and GKD...


AND I HAVE WASHI TAPE...and now I have a Stardust Glitter Pen...and I am a happy card maker!


Going to think summer...biking would be good...


and...prizes don't matter to me (though I've won twice at GKD long ago)...and if I ever won a guest designer spot I would faint...pick me up and I'd probably faint again......but it might be fun to be able to tell Kub I rank with him just once!


Thanks for the challenge...I think this will be a fun one...

I have heard a lot of chatter from challenge coordinators, blog dt's, etc. that prizes seem to be what gets people to play in the challenge. SCS has dropped off in participants, I know vsn used to get a ton of players when there were prizes involved & now there aren't too many people that play. It seems to be the hostesses & the same faithful ones. Stamptv also took a hit when the prize changed to a grab bag & not a choose your own.

There are a lot of challenges out there also & that makes a difference.

And I am sure what I know for companies is smidgins to what's really available...I remember last July being overwhelmed when I walked into the Stamp Expo and there were 2 companies that I had ever heard of was Close to my Heart and a SU demo was there!


This year I will not be walking around with my mouth hanging open...and it isn't just stamps...I had never seen so many embossing folders before either...


This year I'm going again with cash...and going to even do a couple make-n-takes...those overwhelm me too...having to follow directions!

I'm equally likely to PLAY in a challenge whether there is a prize or not, but more likely to actually post my card if there is a prize. A lot of times I make things and just never get around to posting anywhere.

I stopped doing Stamptv challenges when they first switched from having one everyday to just two a week. It just threw me off. Now, I check every now and again, but I don't love having to use their sets to be considered for a prize. Now, I think I only ever made one card for a stamptv challenge with another company's stamp, but I still don't like knowing that I can't. Not in a resentful way, more of a stifling, what am I going to do with this kind of way. I'd like to try their clear stamps, but I haven't yet. I just don't rubber stamp that much anymore and I'm not the colorer I used to be.

As for VSN, I never played when there were prizes, but it seems like they do VSN a lot more often than they used to? It used to just be 2 or 4 times a year and now it seems like as soon as it ends another one is announced? I just think it's missing the "BIG DEAL" aspect that it used to have. Plus, there are now 3 SCS events that do have *major* prizes. I don't think VSN can compete with that!

And, I totally agree that the sheer number of challenges makes a big difference. I can only hold about 8 in my head at once so that's about all I look at.

Maybe it's not then. It just seemed like the first year I did it that it was a long time in between. There weren't DTGD or HYCCT challenges then, though. And I didn't have kids yet, so time just seemed slower in general!

mrslaird...interesting reading...thanks...

I agree...I play...I don't often post because by the time I've played the deadline is well...dead...but I learn while I'm playing usually...that makes the fun part for me...


It was easier for me when there was only a couple of places for challenge options...you are doing good to keep 8 in your head...I can't even remember yesterday's.


I remember when VSN was less times but they also had a scrapbooking one so it seemed more often to me...


NOW...question to scraperwannabe...


what is DTGD challenges and HYCCT challenges?
