24 Blueprint Series - May 2021

There's a new challenge series beginning today - I've lost count of how many of them Kelly, Barb and I are doing, but it's a lot. They are both so creative and come up with fabulous ideas - and I get invited to play along. I am so thankful for both of them.

This new challenge was Kelly's idea. I'm not absolutely certain where she got the idea, but I think she tweaked something she saw to come up with this idea. Hopefully she will share with us the details on her blog post. 

She is calling this one the...

24 Hour Blueprint

The idea is that the host (we'll take turns) will send information on how many cards we need to make and the specifications for those cards and then we have 24 hours to make them, posting the next morning.

1. You have 24 hours to make your card(s) - to post at 7 a.m. the following morning of the hostess's mysterious challenge.

2. Hostesses will announce the number of card(s) 24 hours before the challenge - not 2 days before or 20 minutes before... you get 24 hours and that's it!

3. Hostesses can choose up to 4 mysterious blueprints but they must be made in under an hour - so nothing FANCY SCHMANCY!

4. Hostesses give us ONLY the specs for the card requirements (blueprints) and what EACH layer should be. For example, the stamps/colors/papers used vary per player.

5. Each card must have its own blueprint so please give a description of each!

I'll admit I was a wee bit confused (but willing to go for it) until Kelly sent this document to Barb and I yesterday...

Now it makes perfect sense!
