HYCCT15 Prize Drawing Thread - opens Monday, November 16th!
 
Here's where all the magic will happen.

I'm traveling for an event tomorrow (anyone going to OnStage in Dallas this weekend?) and returning Sunday, so while the report is being double and triple checked (please thank Sabrina - cook22 for her tireless work on this every event we have) - I will leave this thread closed until Monday and then the games will begin!

If you are new to Hope You Can Cling To or any of our sponsored events, here's a brief rundown on how it works:

Random.org is boring. So instead, I ask a series of Splitcoast trivia questions to people chatting in the thread. I use the time stamp of their answers to create the random numbers for the drawings - so they can learn fun facts about the events while they are helping me draw the lucky winners.

So come back here and chat on Monday and brush up on your knowledge of our site and this event - and I will start making people very happy very soon!

Yay!! Prize drawings!! I'm horrible at guessing, but it's fun anyway!

jdmommy 11-16-2015 11:23 AM

I'm a terrible guesser too! It will be fun to find out how far off we are!!!

I think sending beautiful cards to folks who can use them was a terrific prize...

jdmommy 11-16-2015 11:26 AM

I'll agree with you there, Brenda!

kyann22 11-16-2015 11:29 AM

Oh wow! It's started. I'll try to check in and see how it's going. Good luck everyone.

annsforte3 11-16-2015 11:42 AM

Torture is beginning!! LOL!

jdmommy 11-16-2015 11:48 AM

Ann, I have to tell you that the challenges for HYCCT were so interesting, and so very well thought out. It was a pleasure to play........everyone won!!

muscrat 11-16-2015 11:48 AM

If you remember correctly, one of my guesses last year was horribly off!! LOL so don't count on me to get anything correct unless I just get lucky!

maria116 11-16-2015 11:50 AM

hmmm... tough question. So what happens if no one guesses the right number??

She goes with the closest number...

FayeMakesCards 11-16-2015 12:32 PM

Just home from making a couple major purchases...another :shock:

Yes - if I have four prizes to give away, I pick the four closest - use their timestamp to generate my random #s for the drawing :) No need to be right - it's just fun to see what everyone thinks these statistics are.

germanstampler 11-16-2015 12:54 PM

I'm pretty sure my guessing is totally bad but I will help to found out the first winners. FUN!!!

Carolinakathy 11-16-2015 01:03 PM

Never received a clue on my iPad. Just now saw it as an e- Mail on my phone.....

Holstein 11-16-2015 01:04 PM

I'm not sure how many participated, but there were so many awesome cards. The challenges were fun and thought provoking. Applause to all the hostesses that left comments on many, many cards.

lisa808 11-16-2015 01:09 PM

This was my first year participating. Enjoyed the challenges. I have no idea how many participants there were, so I guessed my mother's birthday.

Food for the wedding reception...simple light lunch but oh dear food for 265...


And I will not be making the wedding cakes though that was the plan if the total was under 200...


On Saturday my oven broke so I'm really thankful I'm not baking the cakes next week!

Pretty sure most of you know about this already, but in case not, Jennifer McGuire is doing her Share Handmade Kindness campaign and this week is to make a card for two children with cancer. Share Handmade Kindness Card Shower + BIG Giveaway! - Jennifer McGuire Ink If you're looking for some card do-gooding. :)

jdmommy 11-16-2015 01:30 PM

I'd love to stay, but it's 5:30, and my family would like me to get in the kitchen and make them some supper. I guess I'll have to check in tomorrow. Bye all.

Newbie question: How long does it generally take to award all these fabulous prizes? Days?

Ummm, I expect we'll be done by Thanksgiving. :) It tends to take awhile! :)

Crafty Julia 11-16-2015 02:15 PM

which makes the anticipation that much sweeter!

StampinAK 11-16-2015 02:36 PM

I have no idea, but took a stab at it!

muscrat 11-16-2015 02:47 PM

I've made three guesses so far! Might as well, helps pass the time! LOL

mamaxsix 11-16-2015 03:38 PM

The party/torture has begun!

AnnetteMac 11-16-2015 04:03 PM

I won't be able to join in the chat/fun much between work and classes this week. I made a guess and hope everyone is having a good evening.

kyann22 11-16-2015 04:06 PM

I should be stamping but I'm just not feeling it. It's been a stressful day and I think Netflix or my book might be calling my name. I just want to color lately; actually putting a card together not so much. I need a partner to make the cards with my colored images or something. lol Think I can talk the husband into that?! Ha!

Hopefully there are some lucky folks tonight!

UnderstandBlue 11-16-2015 04:12 PM

Yay - I have 41 guesses - off to draw - I'll be back with winners, their cards and the stats in a minute!
