Here’s my .02...

If you get “stuck” on one challenge... move on to another one & come back to it later. And remember the main thing... HAVE FUN!!

I also had some basic ribbons available and bling. We did have an advantage that the VSN was related to gardens so I got out in advance all of my flower stamps, dies, butterflies and anything else I could think of that would be in a garden.

When the challenge was set, I didn't expand my creativity and stayed with what was literally asked.....seeing the other ladies' creations later, I realised that you can pretty much run with anything as long as it relates somehow to the original challenge/theme.

Marg gave me the tips on timers and that was excellent.

The important thing is to have fun. The ladies are a wonderful crowd and I shall miss the chats and fun...enjoy it all.
Sis Jayne you are so kind with a huge heart and so amazing you will surely be missed this time around and dtgd. Was so fun chatting and creating with you . You surely will be missed!! Enjoy your travel around the world . You richly deserve it!

I never do the inside of my cards when I create. I prefer to add the inside sentiment when I'm ready to use the card.

Melody, I'm like you regarding sentiments. I rarely ever use an occasion-specific type of sentiment when I make a card but do sometimes add one when I'mm ready to use it. However, I always "decorate" the inside of my cards. For me, it seems to finish it off.

Hello everyone!!
It's been a while since I have been able to participate in a VSn. Like years!!! I have had a number of challenges over the last year's (and have been just plain busy). I fit plenty of card making in, but none of them were challenge driven. I look forward to joining you all this time however. I have all the supplies so far, my space is cleaned up and ready to go! Can hardly wait to get to know some of you better and be inspired as I know that I will be...... until then!

Default Looking forward to joining!

It's been over 6 years since I have joined a VSN and the stars have aligned! My DH is leaving on TDY on the 13th!
I am hoping the limited supplies in my mini craft room in our second house will make it easier to focus and work in a time limit.
Hawaiian, are you on Oahu? I am in Honolulu. Big hugs for your family good byes! Part of my family just disowned me and I am grieving their loss a bit (in a different way) so this is therapy for me too. I love that there are kind people here on SCS all the time!

Checking in on the chat..today is my mother's 85th birthday. I made her a nice card, of course, and going out for dinner later today.

Looking forward to Friday and Saturday for Virtual Stamp Night! I am hostess for challenge #14 so everyone should be all warmed up by the time my surprise hits the thread.

Remember, most of us hostesses will be LIVE and on-line when our challenges release so if you have any questions we will be available to chat, help, encourage, cheer, applaud. So, don't be afraid to join in the fun.

I'll say Hawaii since I spent June and and the first few days of July in Hawaii. One of my sons is stationed there. I'm not sure it was a vacation but in my mind it was great. grandbaby #4 came early. So memaw spent some time with the grandbabies. I've only seen the 3 year old twice and the 2 year old once, so it was lovly spending time with the babies. Now I need to plan on visiting Alaska where my other son is stationed to visit that grandson, I've only seen 3 times. Maybe Next year.

Mahalo Much Sis. Yes sometimes life happens like that but the Ohana on SCS is so amazing!!! Here we are so fortunate to be able to choose our Ohana unlike when we have to disown or be disowned by those assigned by birth . So VSN and the whole SCS is glorious and magnificent therapy. And don’t have to pay a arm or leg to lay on someone’s couch lol.. you will definitely enjoy VSN and hope it readys you for dtgd so on!!
Yes on the west side . You?

I have posted the message below on the "VSN ask anything thread" so if you respond to that one no need to respond to this one, I'm subbing both

OK;
Hi all just checking the start times,
So if the start time is 5 pm Eastern time that will mean all of us in Australia on the Eastern Seaboard will kickoff on Saturday at 10 am and Sunday at 6 am, hope this is right as those start times are brilliant.
Could someone let me know if my Time Zone calculator has gone on vacation and I have it wrong.

I've been playing VSN since 2011 time and family & travel permitting and I have to say I'm addicted to these challenges.

Jeanette I've seen you round the traps and thought you had played in VSN, it must be other challenges. So glad you'r going to give it ago it is huge fun and you come away feeling hugely satisfied creatively even if you don't get all the challenges finished.

Astrid and Teri welcome back to the fold so glad you can play.

Three sleeps to go Woo Hoo.

After making a couple of cards that is usually what my desk looks like, too. Better clear some away and put that TH Mat down to get to business this weekend. I have cleared most stuff off my calendar but there were a couple of things that could not be moved. I'll just have to squeeze them in somewhere. I may be card making with one hand and cooking with the other. Have company coming for dinner Saturday but I know they have to make it a very short visit as they have an appointment to be at at 7. I'm not even sure when we finish with challenges on Saturday. Looking forward to some fun challenges.

Yippee! This weekend’s camping trip was cancelled so now I get to have a real Staycation with you all! Hopefully, I’ll get to make a few cards between unpacking boxes. (We just moved back into our house after a five month renovation. Loving it!) “See” you this weekend!

Due to unexpected surgeries, complications and a slow recovery, my creativity quotient has been compromised over the last 6 months. This, my first VSN, is going to be my personal celebration of sorts, welcoming my Muse back into my life. Can't wait to make up for lost time. Thank you, Dr. Sonja, for igniting the spark. Happy Birthday to your Mom.

Good Morning!

I cannot believe it. I've waited and anticipated this day all week long. Then last night, plans changed. I am now leaving home after an early lunch (more importantly, after the mail arrives) and won't be home again until sometime tomorrow evening.

So, alas, I am not going to be able to participate... unless I manage to pop in for a wee bit tomorrow evening amidst the unpacking, cooking supper, cleaning up kitchen, etc.

But... life is what life is... and it is good.

Have fun tonight without me.

Jeanette, remember we have a whole week to finish up the cards and load them so if you want to play once you are unpacked there is no rush!!! I know it's kind of hard to slip back into crafting mode after a trip so if you can't on Saturday you still have until the 22nd!!! I hope it's a fun trip that you are getting to take and not an obligation trip.

I am so excited for you!!! We need to celebrate! I will enjoy looking at all your projects and celebrating with you!!! I cut my hair in celebration after my last PT appointment after a car accident earlier this year.

Sis I have a graduation luau as well tomorrow . Even if I can’t play live I always still play along and do catch up. Remember even when we go live sometimes I’ll pass on a challenge and get back to it later . That’s the reason most times I take notes and I never upload while it’s live because I take so long uploading and a slow net . 2 VSN I can remember in the middle of gone live I had to run off to the hospital . And both times I was so like you waiting excited etc. so sis no worries you got time . Do make up catch up all it ask of us is do it on a honor system of the hour and VSN don’t start till your timer start even if we can or can’t go live . ...enjoy your life and come join when you can!!

Angie, thank you! I will try my best to jump back in once the dust settles. It is a fun trip - albeit a hot one. We are joining my DH who has been away at camp all week. Apparently he is homesick. LOL! He leaves again in mere days for a 10-day trip to England and I think he's stressing about not seeing much of us this month.

Seriously, our son Brock (he's a young adult - autistic - who looks at life with great joy) is so excited about going. We will have fun!
