Challenge #1 began Friday evening and was hosted by Hannah, who also organized this whole endeavor. Her challenge was to make something using green or use a Friendship theme. I went the green route, and used an older Hero Arts collage stamp, coloring it minimally:
Challenge#2, hosted by Judy, was to make a Christmas Thank You card:
You can tell I was getting tired....I debossed my panel instead of embossing it. It was bedtime for me at that point, so I stopped for some sweet dreams, and then resumed Saturday morning with Challenge #8 from Cat: to make a shaped card and use no white or cream at all. Not using white or cream was a challenge for me, but here's what I made:
Lucille's Challenge #9 was "An Animal of a Different Color"; I made an orange deer and a peacock (distress ink) tree!
Karen was our hostess for Challenge #10, and her rules were to use ONLY red, cream, and gold. This one gave me fits, because the red music didn't dry enough by the time I overstamped the pine flourish background; when I embossed it in gold, the music took it, too, so there isn't as much of a contrast in the background as I'd wished for, but time was running out!
Next up was Barb in Challenge #11. She asked that we use at least 3 different patterned papers and a Hero Arts image, besides the usual sentiment:
And for the final Challenge #12, Janet chose the theme of "Time"; we could interpret that any way we wished. She had given us an example card which used a stamped clock over a printed paper, and that's the direction I went also.

I want to give special thanks to Hannah, one of our youngest members, who organized the whole event. She pulled this whole thing together quickly, and then was there throughout the whole process, to answer questions and keep us all on track and updated. Bravo, Hannah!
