Default SCS Sisters (SU Only Blog Group): CHALLENGES

Hi all!

Now that we have a full group, we can get started with the challenges. I probably sound like a broken record (if any of you remember what that is *he*) but do send your ideas my way for any challenges that you can think of.

I thought I'd start this new thread just for challenges to make it easier to find.

Go to the top of the page, click on "Thread Tools" and a drop down box will appear. Click on "subscribe to this thread." You can then choose how you want to be notified. I always choose "instant notification by email" so I know whenever there is a new post.

Arrow #2: Card Duo

Hi everyone!

So sorry for the long absence. Things have finally wound down and I'm stamping again.

Here's the challenge for this week:
* create 2 cards
* the cards you make will either have
a) the same layout, using different colors OR
b) the same colors with different layout or layout variation

Here's my blog post with samples.

If uploading to your SplitCoast Gallery use SCS Keyword: SUSis02 (that's a zero-two)
Blog post title (unless you come up with something more creative): Card Duo Challenge


next challenge will be posted on April 23, 09

Glad to see I am not the only one behind on the challenges. Here is my SUSis02 or Card Duo.

Hopefully I can get the next one done tonight-right after I finish laundry and finish my swaps. Ugh!
