Default SEP07VSNPre3 ~ Tues. Aug. 21 ~ 7 p.m. EST ~ Jump Rope! chat thread ~

Jump rope!
Autumn Fairy bonus Hostess: Michelle (eliotstamps)
Keyword: SEP07VSNPre3
Time: 7:00 PM EST, Tuesday - August 21st

You can't jump into fall without your jump rope! It's a staple on playgrounds and in PE classes for kids heading back to school! Rope is also an essential tool on farms during harvest time or even for fall decorations.

For this challenge, use rope, twine or cord on your card, but no other ribbon, yarn or fibers! Natural fibers are preferred, but if all you have is gold or silver cord, that will work, too! Have fun and let's see what you can do with your jump rope! I'll be here in the chat thread to answer any questions!

My sample is in the gallery here and in a thumbnail below.

Taylor's (stagccva) sample is below and in her gallery, too!

The same rules apply as with other VSN challenges: please create only 1 card; keep to the 45 minute time limit; and please add the keyword SEP07VSNPre3 when you upload your card. All submissions must be uploaded by end-of-day Sept. 6th!

See all the cards for this challenge here!

Uploading Instructions:

*Please remember to put in the correct keyword when uploading your image. If you are using additional keywords, you must separate them with a comma. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.
*It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in the chat thread just in case the gallery is being testy.

Sample:

I had to change my avatar to get in the jump rope spirit!
Oh and Karen, I had to borrow some of your challenge wording - I realized at the last minute that mine was missing the rules!

Don't these family members know its VSN warm up night? Save the visits, and the drama, and the chaos for tomorrow!

Good for you, Patty! I don't know if I have the energy to drag the stamp stuff out tonight. I put it all away before my mom came and my house is all clean and tidy right now! I'm sure I'll get it out tomorrow, though - it's been a week since I stamped!

You mean you didn't run for your stamps as soon as she got on the plane?

No. I usually try to find a themed avatar for the weeks leading up to VSN, but haven't done that yet. And then when my challenge comes on VSN, I change it to an avatar that matches my challenge. I figured I could use the jump rope for now, then change to fall for a couple of weeks before VSN. I haven't found one to match my actual VSN challenge yet.

Hi Katherine!

Are we allowed to go into other threads and post about the challenge going on now? Like for example in the color challenge thread?

I refuse to answer on the grounds that it might incriminate me.
