Hmm...i'm not sure if i'm going to join this one or not....i do need motivation to get back into scrapping and card making.... this might do the trick. I'm just so busy with work and the kids after school activities.
Ya know what...put me down... i'll do what i can. I'm sure i won't get all 50 done....but some is better than none, right?

Simple isn't a bad thing.

Honestly, if you'll believe it, I've been sticking to/choosing somewhat simple-type/less-involved examples, just to start.

The majority of the more detailed, complicated & or especially cute & creative cards don't allow public embedding (hardly any do). So, in some ways I'm sort of limited to certain cards, themes or ideas. If that helps or make sense.

Being a card-lover, I love the thrill of the hunt & enjoy finding new ideas & faves!

{Waving back}...We're glad to not only have you visit, but thanks so much for taking the time to say hi!

I do hope you'll decide to stay! I think with this particular challenge, once you start, you can hooked!

I mentioned in one of the very first posts, that *50* is such an intimidating number. This is my 3rd year participating in this particular challenge.

Tips...

- I think working in groups of 3 is helpful. (3 at a time, apparantly must be my limit!) lol.

- Being organized (optional, but certainly can prove helpful!)

- Setting up a 'Card-Making Workshop' table (if children, pets or space allow!)

- Digging into your stash at hand (time-saver + cost-effective)

- Starting simple, embellishing later!

- Having envelopes onhand.

Hope That Helps!
