Weekly I Spy Challenge
 
Hello Friends, and welcome to Spy HeadQuarters. This is the NEW weekly "I Spy" challenge. Have you ever played I Spy as a child? You would sit in the back seat of the car with your big brother or little sister and while at a stop light you would see a bush with cool looking flowers on it and you would say "I spy with my little eye something green." And your siblings would take a guess at what it is you spied. If they were wrong then you would add "It has white flowers." and they would guess again. This would go on until one of them guessed that you spied a snowball bush.

Well, this challenge is based on that game.

This is an example of how it will work. Every Saturday I will post something like: "I spy with my little eye something in a tree. It is red and black in color. It has wings and it has feathers.

Now the challenge for everyone is to make a card using at least one element of the description of what I spied.
If you really want to challenge yourself, use all of the elements of the description. And the biggest challenge would be to guess what it is that I spied and add that onto your card. Please do not mention the item you believe it is I spied. The fun is using the descritption itself. On the following Saturday I will tell you the item I spied...Don't forget to look at everyone's cards and see what they came up with. And let's make sure we leave comments on everyone's cards.


The first person to post their card showing the image that I Spied will win a prize.

What to do with the cards we make.
Every person that plays this challenge and posts their card in the Spy Quarters (the thread) will get their name put into a drawing. The drawing is to see who our "Happy Mail Spy" will be. Whoever's name is drawn will be the recipient of the cards. Keep in mind that it is NOT mandatory that you send your cards to the Happy Mail Spy. However, if you do choose to send your card to the winner all you have to do is pm me for the winners address. Please keep in mind that you MUST post your card to the thread in order to be included in the drawing.

The new I Spy Challenge will start this Saturday, Aug.20. So please grab your spy kit and come and join in on the fun. If we become a chatty group...lol..IF...I know we will be a chatty group so if you are new to challenges or new to SCS just jump on in and say Hello. This challenge is open to each and every person that wants to play. It is a new challenge so if you have any ideas on how to make this challenge more fun, please pm your ideas to me.

So is everyone ready??? I know Lauren is.....let's get to know each other as friends by introducing ourselves. Feel free to tell us something fun about yourself. Please keep in mind that you do NOT have to chat with us in order to play the I Spy Challenge. However, if you are new and do like to chat...then jump on in and chat away.....Oh there is one BIG rule in this challenge and that is to HAVE FUN!!!!

A Cardinal!!!:mrgreen:


I'll try running amuck around here as much as my head will let me. I loved this game as a kid and the I spy books too.

raduse 08-19-2011 01:59 PM

Remind me when you post the challenge tommorrow. With the way I'm feeling today, I'll forget about it.

mrslaporte 08-19-2011 02:05 PM

This sounds like fun!

DellsDani 08-19-2011 02:13 PM

Bonnie and Mrs. Laporte it is wonderful to see you. Bonnie, I will remind you tomorrow. And feel free to run amuck...we are very used to that aren't we LYNN???? lol...I am keeping you in my prayers. Huggs to you both. Oh and you are so right in your guess of the example I gave....it is a cardinal. hehe Good Job!!!!

laurenscraft 08-19-2011 03:02 PM

Dani, Dani, but I want to start right now!!! I have been waiting like forevah!!!!

Can I give you a suggestion????

Can we keep the same thread like we do in the Alphabet Challenge, it is so much easier to find all the time.... yep you guessed it, I like easy and I am basically lazy!!!

Tee Hee

Come on Lynn, Come on Bonnie, Come on Mrs Laporte, Come on let's go see if we can spy a tree, or something red or anything really, come on let's go make a card, I have great new toys to play with and did you check out my gallery? I used some new toys!!

stampmontana 08-19-2011 03:56 PM

Hi Dani and crew,

I see a lot of the fun people are already standing by waiting for the "I Spy" challenge to begin. I will be checking in on here tomorrow to see what I am inspired to create! Sounds like fun.

stampmontana 08-19-2011 04:05 PM

I know all of you have plenty to do while you are waiting! You have other swaps to work on and you can try out some new ideas with your new crafting toys or things you have purchased and haven't used yet! I know I have several things I haven't used yet.

I took a look in Lauren's gallery and saw some great new creations!!:D

Lmn 08-19-2011 04:07 PM

Woohoo
 
Thanks for the invite Dani! Sounds like fun! I'll be looking forward to checking back in tomorrow to see just what you spied :p

AnniePanda 08-19-2011 04:36 PM

Oh this does sound fun! Looking forward to playing tomorrow.

tryingtofindtime 08-19-2011 06:16 PM

I'm soooo terrible at weekly challanges...but I am going to try to play along again...I used to love that game!!!

so can we guess on the thread what it is or do we just make a card with what we think then post?!

FMcrafter 08-19-2011 07:05 PM

But we are SUUUUCCCHHHH an easy bunch here...if you even get close to possibly being within 500 yards of anything Dani describes...I jump and holler!! Kerra my corgi helps lead the cheer!!!

tryingtofindtime 08-19-2011 07:26 PM

I just wasn't sure if we say or not, so that we can see what crazy things people come with....if someone guesses correctly the first moment it gets posted then I'll know what to make my card of....

like maybe I thought it was a toucan in the tree. or my black cat who has a red collar with a finch....Everyone can do a cardinal....well maybe I do want someone to tell me the answers.

FMcrafter 08-19-2011 07:31 PM

Ok Dani cannot tell the answer tilll the next week. The fun for me is the different ideas

laurenscraft 08-19-2011 07:34 PM

Is it Saturday yet???

"No", says Dani..... "go the the naughty step and finish making those vintage challenge cards, you have 5 to do and have only completed one, I expect to see them on your blog before you go to bed tonight Lauren!!" Dani continued sternly....

Tee Hee *giggling and running very fast to the naughty step, sliding into my spot grinning at everyone ...... Tee Hee, so funny

laurenscraft 08-19-2011 07:36 PM

Ha Ha I have just turned into a Die Cut Diva, how did it know I love die cutting????

I have 3000 posts, so funny!!

laurenscraft 08-20-2011 05:17 AM

Hellooooooo it is Saturday!!!

I crafted all day at the naughty step waiting for Saturday and made seven cards, yes that's right, seven. All good ones too, and they are all in my gallery just waiting for you to go and have a look at them.

Now where are my playmates?? Where is Lynn, Marilyn and where is Yvonne....

Oh and the million dollar question is, where is Dani??

Tee Hee, ** running away giggling

stampmontana 08-20-2011 06:43 AM

Hi Lauren,

I see you have been waiting for the challenge! I thought maybe Dani would be here early and you would already be finished before I woke up.

I wanted to take a look at all the cards you created while I was sleeping, but there seems to be some problem with our galleries.

There are only 5 photos in your gallery (1 page) not the new cards.


I only have 1 page in mine too. Something is wrong.

stampmontana 08-20-2011 07:02 AM

Well i went and took a shower and came back and now all the missing pages in our galleries are back. Now I can see your beautiful cards Lauren!

JanetJ 08-20-2011 07:57 AM

ONLY 3000 posts??

This sounds like a fun one!

OK Dani - where is the challenge??

...running away to stamp......

DellsDani 08-20-2011 11:00 AM

Ok I am sooooo sorry I made you wait. I am moving slowy. But I am here and before I even read all the posts I am going to post the challenge. BRB

DellsDani 08-20-2011 11:29 AM

First "I Spy" Challenge - Post #24
 
Hello and welcome to the first of the "I Spy" challenges. Don't forget here in Spy Headquarters, we are a chatty bunch so jump on in the conversation. Oh and if you haven't read post number 1 please do so now, I'll wait....
Ok, you've had time to read the first post so now you know how the "I Spy" challenge works so let's get started, shall we?



"I Spy with my little eye... decorations in purple and white. There are centerpeices with beautiful flowers in them. There are beautiful teapots and teacups on every table. Each table is sprinkled with beautiful gems. And there are ribbons that flow down from the ceiling."

Please used the keyword: DDISPY01

Because I do not want to give anything away I will not post my card until later.

So ladies.........HAVE FUN!!!!!

DellsDani 08-20-2011 12:10 PM

Hello ladies...I did read all the posts and I hope I answer all of your questions. If I miss one..please don't send me to the naughty step with Lauren, she pinches me all the time. No wait, do send me to the naughty step...Lauren has lots of new toys maybe she will share with me. Hehee
First let me welcome each and everyone of you; Janet J, Montana, Lauren, FM, Tryingtofindtime (we need to give you a nickname ), anniepanda, LMN, MrsLaporte, Raduse and I hope and pray I didn't miss anyone. If I did...I am truely sorry. Welcome Everyone!!!
Ok, please do NOT say what the item is if you figured out what I spied. Just make a card showing it. I will go look at post number 1 and see if I have that in there. I will announce the item next Saturday. Unless you ladies feel we should do it differently. I am open to suggestions since after all....I am doing this for you.
Lauren, you crack me up girl. I have been laughing ever since reading this. In fact, I read your posts outloud and my granddaughter Dani is here (yes, she loves to be with Meemaw) she then asked...Are you their leader or something?? Omgosh I laughed so hard.
I am so happy to see y'all getting excited about this new challenge. I am excited to come up with bigger and better items each and every week.
I do like the idea of keeping everything in one thread. So that is what we will do.
I think FM's Kerra is going to have to be our mascot. Go Kerra!!!!
LMN, you are very welcome. I am glad to see you here with us.
Everyone, I hope I covered everything. If I missed something please don't be afraid to bring it to my attention. Ok..I shall hush now so ya'll can get to work on your cards. Love and huggs to you all.

laurenscraft 08-20-2011 02:01 PM

What???? I don't believe it, Dani posted 2 hours ago and no one is here!!!

I seem to be first...... and I only just got out of bed on a Sunday morning at 6.30am.. Tee Hee

Well I know what I am making... Tee hee, very soon for the craftroom I will be creating again!!

Well done Dani, this is great!!

Sunday???? Is the time difference really that much??? I will have to do a special "cheater" message for you on Fridays. I will send you the challenge thru a pm..however..you can not post your card until the challenge has been posted. k??

laurenscraft 08-20-2011 02:22 PM

No Dani don't do that, I cannot keep a secret and I might accidentally spill to Miss Lynn when she puts that Chinese water torture on me.... Tee Hee.

Yep the time difference is about 16 hours, sometimes less with Daylight Savings etc. Usually you start your day as I am going to bed!! And for many it is afternoon/suppertime when I start my day.

It is lonely over here in the land of the future!! Tee Hee

FMcrafter 08-20-2011 02:42 PM

Oh...Oh...Oh...does Kerra get a special leash for being our mascot? No she should get a totally blinged out collar for being our mascot!!! No I should get a totally blinged out tiarra!!!!

******running away to postulate the possibilities

Suzy800 08-20-2011 02:47 PM

Okay, this is going to be fun.....I just hope I get myself organized enough to actually get a card made!! My plan was to be in my craft room for the whole day, but i've had two little grandchildren here all day already, so that didn't happen. BUT.....I think I have a pretty good idea what it is!

And Lynn, I think both you and Kea need to get blinged out for this challenge!

laurenscraft 08-20-2011 03:22 PM

Tee Hee, Dani is our leader, Dani is our leader...... Tee Hee.....

I know what it is..... I spy with my little eye.... Tee Hee........ I love this game, I love this game!!!

decorations in purple and white. There are centerpeices with beautiful flowers in them. There are beautiful teapots and teacups on every table. Each table is sprinkled with beautiful gems. And there are ribbons that flow down from the ceiling....

Dani's fav colour is purple..... could you guess that???
Dani's fav drink is tea..... could you guess that??? (I made this up)

It could be a mad hatters tea party, Tee Hee... Tee Hee.

** running away to find some purple cardstock, laughing madly!!!

laurenscraft 08-20-2011 03:23 PM

Oh I forgot.....

Miss Yvonne, to the naughty step for you my girl, Miss Lynn gets no more bling!!!

Oh -OK - I thought she was one of those women before they are old enough to be in the Red-Hat Society (they wear purple hats).
My friends also reminded me of a song from the 1960s-70s about the "one eyed, one horned, flying Purple People Eater"...... :rolleyes:

DellsDani 08-20-2011 03:38 PM

Y'all crack me up. To set the record straight....I don't drink tea..hehe....and Ms. Kerra can have the bling..after all she has a busy job keeping everyone motivated. Ms. FM my friend...you can share in Kerra's bling...altho you may look funny with a collar around you neck that is decorated in bling. hehe...And oh how I remember that song...Purple People Eater...too fun...ok...back to my stampin room else I won't get my swap out to Lauren tomorrow and I am already on the naughty step for being so late in going postal. I totally forgot about the time difference and the amount of time the Happy Mail takes to get there. so...I am out for now...

AnniePanda 08-20-2011 09:23 PM

Hi folks! can't wait to work on this challenge - although I have no idea what it is yet - - - but should be fun to create something with the elements anyway. If that is ok, or am I supposed to figure the object out first. Oh well, I'm a bit slow, so go easy on me.

stampmontana 08-20-2011 09:33 PM

Has anyone started on their card yet? This does sound like fun. There are enough elements in the description, that even if we don't know what Dani has spied we should be able to make some interesting cards!

I hope to have time tommorrow afternoon to do something.

Suzy800 08-20-2011 10:24 PM

JoyceAnn, that's the fun part of this challenge!! Everyone will have their own idea of what Dani is spying! So get goin' there girl.....to the creating room you go!!

**sulking away to the naughty step**

Suzy800 08-20-2011 10:27 PM

But Lauren!! She has to match Kera!! Come on.....just a little bling?? Puullleeeeeeaassseee.

***sulking and going to the naughty step.......ooooo......very cute cabana boy there.......turning frown upside down now!!!***

Joyce first I owe you an apology...I think I've been calling your Annie...I guess I never noticed Joyce on the bottom of your messages. I am sorry. No, you do not have to know what it is I spied. Just use as many of the elements you can on your card. If you guess what it is I spied then put that on your card. Please don't say what it is I spied. But y'all can conversate amongst yourselves to figure it out if you'd like. Just don't say what it is....ooh that sounds like a challenge in itself. lol...Just have fun with it. :D
