Card Challenge
Welcome to the September Card Challenge!

To give Karen (TexasMomOf4) a break we will be swapping "host duties" every other month. So September and November will be my months!!

There are 8 categories: color, theme, product, technique, sketch, favorites, lift and photo inspiration.

Cards must be new as of August 31st.
Deadline is September 29th, @ 8pm CST.


Make as many cards as you want and the challenge is open to everyone. No signing up, just post them as you finish them and I'll add them to the first page as we go along. And don't forget the most important rule, HAVE FUN!!

Please check Allow Public Embedding for your cards when you upload them!

Just in case anyone needs it, here are the directions on how to embed your cards to the thread..

*Click on the picture you want to link in your gallery
*On the left side of the page, under "Share", click on the "Link/Embed Image"
*Click the bubble button beside IMG code
*Click inside the box with the code in it
*Click the middle bubble for the size of the photo
*Click CTRL & C to copy
*Come back to the thread and press CTRL & V to post the link and click add post and that's it!
**** PLEASE READ! ****

When adding your card to the Scrapbook.com Gallery, please specify this challenge in the description. Example: if you made a card for color, write: "September card challenge - color".

Oh the "lift" card was perfect for what I was needing. I had to make different samples to show a lady so she can pick which one she likes. And fancy is not my normal style so I loved having this card to lift. Thank you!!!

Karen -
I'm just keeping you on your toes!! Spicing things up for you!!
I'm still on the mind set of having to get cards done at least a month ahead of the holiday since that is when designers get out their new releases....darn design teams!!

I hope I didn't put you in too much of a bind.

I was wondering if anyone was able to play in their craft room. I did but made a calendar page and Halloween sign for the retirement home craft I will do this month. So I hope to get to actually play today and make some cards!!

Hi Kathy, just saw that you're hosting this challenge. I haven't made cards in a long time...but since I'll have to start on my Christmas cards soon, thought it would be good to get in some card practice.

Not sure how many I'll get done but will try for a few. Thanks for hosting

Karen - is that right that they are allowed to combine categories? If they do does that mean I put them in every category they say to?

All caught up from Karen's "bomb" she dropped!!Do you do all those in one sitting or you store them up till they are all done? I must be a slow card maker!

Combine away! If you make a card that combines both color and the sketch, then yes, they will gointo both categories and you should lable as such.

Kathy, with the kids in school and I have no interuptions I can get a lot done. Usually, I don't get that many done at once. It took me 3-4 days to do all those cards. I also forgot to upload some of them sooner.

To answer some of your questions in the comments you left, I sometimes really struggle with putting colors or certain cards together and sometimes they just come together quickly. This month's color was one that came together quickly. The happy face for the theme I made. I printed that face off the internet and used it as my pattern to make the face I wanted. The stamp I used on the sketch was from Stampendous called "Agapanthus Cluster".

Thanks Karen & Kathy, I know there's no way to get them all done individually for me this month. I've signed up for way too many challenges already and trying to get ready for my upcoming vacation but I'll see how many I can get done...thanks again ladies

One card for (2) categories done...will get it posted tomorrow, goodnight!

Well, Tena E was leaving for vacation (lucky her) and I guess I didn't catch her in time to pick the "lift" card. So I have re-drawn and the new winner of picking the "lift" category is ErinReed-EKR1432!!

Please PM Karen your choice. Congratulations!!
