LOL I did! It's attached to the thread but I need to upload it - it's probably in my top three that I've made for this year's challenges. Dina and I had the hive mind I think this time - I bought the image I used specifically for this awesome challenge and then took a little license

Well well well, how did I not notice this thread was even here? Could it be all of the fantastic challenges I've had my head down trying to complete?!

I have had the best time making these cards and thinking about the joy that I hope they bring to people down in Houston. Thanks to everyone for all of their hard work in pulling this off. And thanks to my fellow crafters for all of the inspiration!

Quick question: could a clear envelope stand in for both the paper envelope and the clear outside packaging? They are resealable. I've run out of A2 envelopes, and also realize that my A6 cards will fit the clear envelope, but a paper envelope won't fit in there as well. If necessary, I will Prime order some paper envelopes because I want to get these mailed soon!

YAY! There you are!

Yes - it certainly can. The reason we ask for the clear envie is hundreds of people are flipping through them and this protects them and keeps them pristine for the eventual recipient. They can certainly do double duty!

Don't forget to check out the Hostess Favorites Pinterest Board....so many beautiful cards in there!

Take courage ladies....we're getting closer to the end of these fabulous challenges. Remember there will be a few days after the end of the challenges but before the upload deadline for the prize drawing so you'll have an opportunity to get those final cards made. We believe in you!
No matter if you get to make a card for every challenge or for only a few, the cards you do finish will surely make a difference to the patients and their families!

Imke, you are not alone. I looked at my original Master Tracking sheet and there was a "Bonus" for 1527, but the other two???...out of nowhere. Maybe our numbers for cards are down at Anderson and they are trying to boost it up. : ) I'm into quality, not quantity...guess that's an outdated view.

Ummmm no - we are trying to provide a fun experience. We started adding bonus days (the Kids challenge was the first) here and there over the years as our willing awesome host team grew. We love it when new hosts volunteer and provide new and different inspiration for all the nice people who send cards.

We have five extra challenges this year and they are super fun. the last two bonus challenges are pretty inspiring too.

We got group OCD at 38 and had to make it an even 40 when we were planning this in August

Today's challenge is UP btw

No problem - and remember - the purpose of this is to lift the spirits of people who are going through the hardest thing imaginable - whether you send 1 or you send 40 - you are doing something that makes a big difference.

I'm very grateful for the hard work these hosts put into inspiring you to do just that!

Just for your planning purposes in case you didn't catch this last night. And again, remember that you'll have that week to catch up any challenges that you haven't finished up by the end of the challenge month before the prize fun starts!!!

OK. This little competitive "I want to be a queen" streak in me might just have to go if my family wants to eat over the next two weeks! I am now behind 5 cards plus the seven that are still to come. I need to make another 4 cards for DT work by Friday, plus a couple for a Monday blog hop, plus three PDF tutorials and a couple more DT cards by the end of next week. OH, and I should start working on my Dirty Dozen cards for November, too! LOL... That's what? 26 cards in the next two weeks?? Clean and simple, here I come!!

But isn't it FUN?????????

Need to upload some cards but I am still behind...I'm thankful for the extra week as my month came with an unexpected 2-week hideaway...but now it is full speed ahead...

I'm 23 above 0 so over halfway finished...I've made 43 cards this month but only 23 are for HYCCT...

Sallie, I know you haven't been following this thread fully, but there have been hints of multiple challenges coming up. At the beginning there was talk of 39, but that number creeped out many so Lydia changed it to 40. I don't remember there being even 39 last year, seems the number was more like 35 or 36. Your view on quality verses quantity is straight up my alley! I totally agree 100% with you on that subject! So maybe I'm "outdated" too! ; ) Stampin' Hugs~

You're ahead of me! With the card I just made seconds ago I'm up to 18/40. And now we have colds. Or allergies. Or colds from allergies. Stupid Houston air. But I'm having fun and making cards and using new stuff and old stuff and trying things!

I confess to advocating for an even 40 earlier. Eh! Be careful what you ask for! Trying to keep up with daily challenges, mod, faves and real life as well as hycct... an invitation to burn out and/or breakdown, as evidenced with yesterday's tantrum.

I'm focusing on fun again, and filling a box for the folks at Anderson. Not every card has to be a masterpiece, and we're all in this together.

You Go Brenda! Yes, we are having fun in this journey together! Not every card has to perfect, it will certainly be appreciated because of the thoughtfulness behind the card! Sounds like you are feeling better today. ; ) Sending Big Hugs all the way across the country to Oregon!

That masterpiece challenge is a true challenge for me...I'm really not into "art" and have no concept sometimes why people leave me raving comments on my cards...


BUT...the one person in my little town that knows I am the "anonymous" card maker for our little hospital says people rave about my cards...so...I keep making them in my style...and that makes me content in life!


Now time for running errands in the metro with my daughter who wants to eat lunch at Chick-fil-A (I will pass as there are other options for a cheaper price if I'm hungry!)

well, what if you found something that maybe just the colors or the subject appeal to you on a level of something you would already make. ( and maybe keep it CAS? ) I think I tend to make less layers during hycct than any other time of the year because, some challenges I just have to take them straight at what they asked for. the rainbow one this morning was that way. did the first thing I thought of and crossed it off my spreadsheet. is it the best card? no, but it is done and someone will be pleased with it even if its not something I think of as a "me" card ( bright primary colors all together )

True story-I had a friend visiting earlier this month and she was looking through the box of HYCCT cards I had made and when she came to the card I made for the superhero challenge she said hesitantly, "This one's not really your style is it?" NOPE....definitely not! But again, maybe it will be just the thing for someone else (like my Spock card)!

Your Spock card is one of the highlights for me this year - I squealed when I saw it!

I love being stretched like that - sometimes we surprise ourselves!

I do love being stretched! Whenever I get stumped by something I remember why we call them challenges.
Some of them are right up our normal alley and others take us down new roads to new adventures. I often end up finding myself going back again and again to something I just learned (like Angie's WFD or something that really inspired me in a new way like Dina's yet to be aired final challenge) and I think that's part of the journey that is way cool!
I really couldn't resist on the Spock card and though it is not my normal style I ended up really liking it. I especially liked linking the charms and will definitely use that one again!

Saw this article on my fb wall and couldn't resist linking it here. Not trying to give advice or anything just found it interesting to see the terminology showing up in The Times!

I am with you...I found some challenges right up my alley and very much me and some that I scratched my head saying..."what am I going to do". I even enlisted my DH on one card and said what would you do. He likes giving me inspiration on challenges.

He helped me on the mosaic tile challenge. I even gave him credit on the card. And I gave my mom credit on the Kids challenge card.

well, that is weird, I just left a message here but can't find it anywhere.
I was wondering if there is a way to check my gallery to see if I missed commenting on any cards...I keep having cards "appear" in the middle of other cards that I already commented on, so now I'm afraid I might miss one!!!

Just when I was patting myself on the back for being all caught up . . .
There are three extra challenges for yesterday!

I'm not going to be able to do the KIDS challenge--because I don't think I'll be able to convince my 28-year-old or 36-year-old "kids" to take part. I'd offer to borrow someone else's kid, but I'm afraid they might actually take me up on it.

For those who put in a guess on the painting of my card you are correct. my hubby couldn't get it though he was totally lost. Must be his literal thinking. *grin* glad you liked it. And glad it was a close enough representation to it.
