Default FEBVSNMINI3 ~ SAT, JAN. 30, 2010 ~ 8 pm EST ~ RED MITTENS

Title: Red Mittens
Hostess: Adelle (Adelle)
Keyword: FEBVSNMINI3
Day/Date: Saturday, Jan. 30th
Time: 8:00 PM (EST)

One of my favorite parts of the opening ceremonies is the lighting of the torch. The relay leading up to these games is the longest domestic torch run in history, including more than 12 000 individual runners and reaching the most northern, southern, eastern and western points of the host country, Canada.

Each of the torchbearers wears an official uniform including a pair of red mittens. They are red and white, fleece lined and toasty warm. The mittens are available for sale across the country as well, and are so popular they are always sold out. You can see the red mittens here and a short video on the mittens and the torch run here.

My challenge to you is to make a card that includes the colors red and white and wool or yarn in honor of the mittens.


VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE HERE


UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:

1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10:00 PM EST ON MONDAY, February 1st.
2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.
3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword, FEBVSNMINI3, when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.

It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this chat thread to be sure your layout is seen.

Love this challenge. So glad that I can get here. I'm having problems with SCS tonight. Is it everyone or just my computer? I seem to be able to navigate other websites, but when I come here I keep getting "Internet Explorer cannot display website"...I think that I'll try Firefox! It sometimes works when I'm having problems! I still can't get my card for the first challenge linked! Off to try Firefox! BRB (hopefully!)

It's not just you, it's SCS. Hang in there with us! Things seem better now!

Or not. I'll submit again.

Well, I'm not glad that everyone is having this problem, but I'm glad it's not my computer! I'm on Firefox now and just got the error message only in different words! I hope to get my first card loaded and work on some more now! Hope things get worked out soon! Love these challenges!

Every comment I make I have to "refresh" my screen at least twice and then it posts about 1/2 the time.

But - the good news is, I have glass of wine in hand and I did get some red fabric last week so I can play with this cute mitten challenge.

Be back soon!

Who knew these challenges were going to be so challenging with our SCS technical difficulties.

I keep thinking its getting better and then..... Oh well. Just be patient I guess.

Ladies, please don't take offense that I haven't posted any comments. The cards I've seen so far are wonderful but I'm not having any success with commenting. Posts work about 1/2 the time. The comments will come, don't worry!

This was a fun Challenge... not only did I think about the red Olympic gloves but I started thinking about the old familiar Ukrainian folktale that Jan Brett retold in her book "The Mitten" (http://www.teachingheart.net/mitten.html). Where a group of Animal friends came together and tried to live in a mitten that they found on the snowy ground. Much like we do when we all come together at the Olympics...

Here is my take on this challenge:

RED MITTENS! - 2010
