Challenge Title: Round & Round
Hostess: lacyquilter (Melody)
Keyword: <style type="text/css"></style>MAR16VSNA
Date: Friday, March 18, 2016 - 5 PM EST

Welcome to March 2016 VSN - Here Comes the Sun! I hope you're ready for some fun challenges. I'm honored to be the one to start you off.

If we look up into the sky on a cloudless day, there's a bright ball of fire that cannot be mistaken for anything other than the sun. It gives us light and keeps us warm.

My challenge for you is simple; since the sun is round, I want you to use one or more circles on your card or make a round card. For circles, you can use stamps, punches, dies, a drawing compass. If you don't have any of those, make circles by tracing around a soup can, a glass, or a coin, whatever you have available that's round. You can even use toilet paper rolls or bottle caps to stamp with -- you get the picture. However you choose to make your circles, be creative and be sure to have fun. I can't wait to see your fun creations.

Challenge Title: Sun symmetry
Hostess: tessaduck (Brenda)
Keyword: MAR16VSNB
Date: Friday, March 18, 2016 - 6 PM EST

Remember the landscapes we drew when we were kids? Green hills with blue rivers, and a sun up in the corner with rays going out in all directions? Believe it or not, that sun was our first step into radial or rotational symmetry.

Here's some more opportunities to play with radial or rotational symmetry:

Use a die or stamp with a sun shape-- a circle with repeated patterns all around.

Use Forums at Splitcoaststampers with a MISTI to achieve rotational symmetry. Alternatively, use a stamp-a-ma-jig to place the same image in a circle or arch.

Score lines that cross at a shared point.

Try Forums at Splitcoaststampers.

NOTE: The sun is not the only image that fits with radial or rotational symmetry. Think flowers, medallions, doilies, or sea stars... or galaxies far, far away!

So, for this challenge, use an image that has a sun shape-- radial or rotational symmetry.

Challenge Title: Sunshine Box
Hostess: Angie (ohmypaper!)
Keyword: MAR16VSND
Date: Friday, March 18th

Hello, everyone! Are you ready for some sunshine? Our winter has been very warm but the sun has been absent more than usual which makes this weekend's theme, even more, fun!

When I googled the word "sunshine", a Pinterest board popped up with "sunshine boxes". The idea is to fill a box full of sunshine-colored items and send it off to cheer up a friend.

My challenge is to create a card with an image or embellishment of something you could fit into a sunshine box. The sky is the limit on this so long as the image or item is YELLOW and could fit in a box!

Below is a photo of a sunshine box I gave to a friend, feel free to choose something from my box or come up with your own item, just make sure it's yellow!

Default Brayered Sunny Sky by berlycece ~ Sat. March 19 ~ 2 pm EST - MAR16VSNG

Challenge Title: Brayered Sunny Sky
Hostess: Kim, aka berlycece
Keyword: MAR16VSNG
Date: Saturday March 19, 2 pm EST

When I think of this VSN theme, "Here Comes the Sun," I think of a beautiful sunrise! (That and the classic Beatles tune!) Depending on the time of year and the number of clouds on a particular day, an early morning sky can be laced with deep blues, golds, oranges, pinks, purples, even grays. My avatar is a photo my husband took a couple of years ago in the Smoky Mountains near Gatlinburg Tennessee during our Thanksgiving vacation. I could stare at sunrises and sunsets all day if they lasted that long!

Getting different shades in the sky on a card can be done various ways, but for this challenge, I am asking you to pull out your BRAYER. If you don't have one, you might want to ask another crafting friend or you could use sponges. If this is a completely new technique, be not afraid! Forums at Splitcoaststampers from the Brayer Queen herself, Michelle Zindorf.

You can use similar tones, or add as much variety as you like. I like to look at an actual photo of the sky to give me inspiration. Just have FUN!!

Default Brighten the Grey by Cook22 ~ Sat. March 19 ~ 3 pm EST - MAR16VSNH

Challenge Title: Brighten the Grey
Hostess: Cook22 ~ aka Sabrina
Keyword: MAR16VSNH
Date: Saturday March 19, 2016 - 3 PM EST

I'm all about adding some bright yellow to a grey day here - we're talking a colour challenge. Yes, me and a colour challenge, who'd have thought it!!

I think we are pretty lucky to live in a temperate climate here in Ireland, but we do have a LOT of grey days - sometimes I think it almost feels as if the sky is a grey lid pressed down over the city. And a little sunshine makes a big difference and makes everybody feel happier.
So for my challenge - your main colour should be grey but add a cheerful dose of bright yellow. Small amounts of other colours are OK but your card should primarily be grey with yellow. It doesn't have to be sunshine - I would love it if someone had a little yellow submarine in a grey sea , or a single yellow flower in amongst a bunch of grey ones... a grey elephant with a little yellow flower... wherever your imagination takes you.

Big thanks to Sonja, Melody, Carla, Lisa, Kim, Misti and Lee for great samples. I hope you're already feeling the positive lift of some sunshine on a grey day. I came home from my MIL with a big bunch of bright yellow daffodils to brighten a grey day here.

Sunshine, Lollipops, and Rainbows - I loved to hear my sister sing that song!!


For this card, you need to make a card with Sunshine and also either Lollipops or Rainbows on your card (or you can do both)!
The CHALLENGE for this card is to use Heat Embossing on your card - since the sun is SO hot!!

While listening to the song Here Comes The Sun I started thinking about how most of my favorite happy songs are oldies. There my go to for dancing with the kids or background for cleaning to help put a little pep in my step.

So my challenge to you is to make your card look like an oldie. Make it vintage, antique or distressed. Just make it look a little aged or give a little wear and tear.

Challenge Title: Give me a Head With HAIR!
Hostess: Covington Crafter (Carla)
Keyword: MAR16VSNK
Date: Saturday, March 19, 2016 - 6 PM EST


When Lee posted the theme, Here Comes the Sun, I immediately thought of another sun themed song, Let the Sunshine In, from the funky, late 60's musical Hair and of course that marvelous song, Hair!

So my challenge for you: Give me a head with hair,” strange and wonderful hair. Wire it, tangle it, add flowers or leaves, Zentangle it.
Stamp or draw a head and get creative with that hair! Need some inspiration besides our samples? Here's my Mixed Media Hair Pinterest board.

Challenge Title: Use a BRAND NEW item from your stash
Hostess: Merla (Crafty Merla)
Keyword: MAR16VSNL
Date: Saturday, March 19, 2016 - 7 PM EST


Sunrise signals a brand new day with no mistakes in it.

So, my challenge to you is to find that brand new item in your stash that you have not used and get creative.

It can be anything from a brand new stamp set to an accessory you might have bought on clearance! Whatever you haven't taken the time to play with yet, is what you want to grab now. Take the time to show those neglected items a little bit of warmth. Make sure to let us know what it is that you have finally dusted off and used.

I look forward to seeing your creations in the VSN gallery Dont forget to use the keyword MAR16VSNL for this challenge when you upload your creation!

Challenge Title: Sunny Boat Ride to Paradise
Hostess: Lisa (Shoe Girl)
Keyword: MAR16VSNM
Date: Saturday, March 19

Recently I was out of a boat in the Caribbean and the sunshine was perfect. It was not too hot, and even on rainy days it was still perfect weather. My challenge to you is to create a card with a boat.

Default Seasons In The Sun by LuvLee ~ Saturday, March 19th - 9 pm EST - MAR16VSNN

Challenge Title: Seasons In The Sun
Hostess: LuvLee (Lee)
Keyword: MAR16VSNN
Date: Saturday, March 19





Here's a throwback to the 70's! I remember learning this song in school when I was really little. I have so few memories but a teacher when I was really young loved music and passed that love along to many of us!



In keeping with the song's theme of "Seasons", my challenge is for you to make a card incorporating any of the 4 seasons as long as you also use sunshine somewhere and somehow, even if it's just a peek!! After all, the sun shines all year!
