I do not remember my first VSN but, I am sure it was very nerve wracking for me. the time limits used to be less.

so, I think that is my favorite thing about those challenges is sometimes the challenge is way outside my comfort zone for one reason or another and there is no time to just putter around. (when I am playing live I try to get it done, and shot , and loaded to the gallery before the next one starts)


when I am playing catch up with it, my brain has time to worry about it for a while. so, I think I still "need" a painted rock ( which if I can find a smooth one and do this, I will most likely abandon it on the shelf at the drive through coffee shop for someone to find) the baby card ( I need to look through my already done cards stash so I pick something different to color), Anita's tutorial ( I need to make one of the bases to see how big the opening ends up being scale wise compared to my stamps, I may go a Christmas route and that is all I have thought about it so far) and the rock & roll tech. ( I do not have very many small roundish negative image stamps or solid stamps so the challenge for me will be finding a stamp to do it with)

I checked out your card Lisa, it's super cute! The pink and black are terrific!

Stacy, it looks like you have given good thought to the challenges. I almost thought I had one for the birthstone challenge but then I realized it took me longer than an hour.

Me too! 45 minutes for creating, then 15 to upload before the next challenge was posted!

I wasn't sure of my first VSN, so I looked in my gallery. It was February 2009. (Now I remember stating in the spring chat thread that this was my 10th anniversary with VSN!)

Sometimes I miss the extra fast pace, with the earlier deadline. I would get a VSN adrenaline rush! But I know the busy nature of life makes it difficult for many people to set aside a full weekend for stamping. Spreading it out over a week has helped some people.

But I still enjoy doing some challenges live!

I remember my first VSN. I loved the idea that maybe a bunch of us were all stamping together at the same time!

I posted my first card to my gallery on July 29, 2011.
I played in my first VSN Aug2011 and it looks like I created 2 cards. I do remember that it was hard not having a die cut machine and seeing everyone's pretty creations. I was brand new and had very few supplies but I loved every minute!

I meant to come back with an answer to your VSN question, Angie, but I needed to have the PC on to check. It looks as if it was Dec 12, and definitely the time limit back then was still 45 minutes. That was a real challenge to me because I am not a fast creator, but I know I learnt a lot from it. Now I like the challenge of working against the clock, but life has got so much busier that I don't get a chance to take part. It looks as if I have a full house from March 18, though.

I came late to VSN because in the earlier days it seemed as if most people were playing along in real time, and that was out for me. I'm also not one for colouring images in advance, so I needed to come up with cards that didn't require too much colouring .

Same. I missed this one because of my husband's surgery, but I'm very much looking forward to DTGD and all the challenges this summer!

Ooh the sketch is up... it has a tag on it. ( I like tags ) but, I struggle with the sketches. I really cringed when I seen the VSN one was covered with circles

( I tend to do squares and rectangles if I diecut the image panels)

Stacy, I’m the same with circles. I like straight lines and angles.

My first VSN was not long ago, because I’ve only been a member of SCS for about 3 1/2 years. I do know that I missed the actual VSN and completed all the challenges during the catch up period. In my early SCS career, I often didn’t realize I was missing things until I started seeing everyone’s cards in the gallery.
I still hope that someday technology will be such that we can all be on a video chat during VSN. How cool would that be?!

Oh, Jennifer, that would be awesome! That would truly be virtual!

Wow, Sabrina you are going to be busy.

Lydia, I just posted my challenge idea for DTGD. It's always such a fun week. I hope your husband is having an easy recovery.

Stacy, thanks for posting the sketch!! Tags are fun!

WT748 is all about tents - take it literally or make a tent fold card.

Who has made a tent fold card? Post a link so we can see one of your favorites if you would like.

I'm still seeing some division by zero error messages for links so I'm not going to try a link, but Anna's MIX challenge is a mixed media beach theme.

It's pleasantly warm here but not too hot. Some heavy thunder showers, DH cycled to work on Wednesday and arrived home like a drowned rat. At least it saves time when the garden doesn't need watering. And getting home wet is ok, arriving in work wet is a different ball game.
