Wink Brand new and excited

I made it! I met this woman in Jo Ann Fabrics who told me about this site and I'm already addicted. I am a married woman with a 2 1/2 year old son and everyone calls me "craft queen". I like to think that I'm a DIY, crafty, always on the go looking for good bargains and Running in Flip Flops kind of gal! About 6 months ago a girlfriend of mine saw that I was "Hand embossing" all my cards and told me about the Sissix Big Kick and how in about 30 seconds I could emboss anything twice as fast. THAT WAS THE BEGINNING OF MY ADDICTION! LOLOLOL I am now into stamping and heat embossing and all the embellishments known to man. I am just doing invitations and cards. I don't scrapbook because I have this thing about cutting up photographs. Maybe in the future.
So this whole entire site is full of many many people that are so talented and I am just so blessed to have found everyone. However, I am a bit slow when it comes to finding out these challenges. I wanted to do a VSBN but cannot figure out how to find it. Do you download it? Where do I go? What do I do? I found the "supply" list but am now stuck. My son goes down for a nap at that time and I'd love to get involved and have some "ME" time. Anyone that can literally walk me step by step through the process would be my new best friend.

Yay! I'm so glad you found us, and bless that sweet lady in JoAnn's for sending you here

Okay - I have some good links in my signature, but let's start with VSBN. We have a challenge forum for this event, which is just starting, so you're just in time. Inside that forum, there are challenges posted all weekend with instructions and photos. There's nothing to download - just hang out in that forum and chat and do the challenges as they're posted. However, to get started, here are some links:

Main VSBN Forum:
