Going Out with a BANG

This is the third Wednesday of December, which means it is the day that Kelly, Barb, and I reveal our Ready, Set, Go cards. In case you're not familiar with this series, it's all about challenges that are a bit more challenging than the norm. I'm so glad Kelly came up with this idea and allowed me to play along.

That being said, this is our last year of Ready, Set, Go. It's also our last challenge. 

We take turns choosing the challenge and this time it was my turn. This is the information I sent Kelly and Barb...

I don’t know about you but I’m getting a little sentimental thinking about this being our last Ready Set Go Challenge. Kelly, when you came up with this idea back in 2017, Barb and I quickly jumped onboard and it has been so much fun! THANK YOU for including me!

Now we’re at the end. This will be our 56th and final Ready Set Go Challenge. I have tried to think of something that could make it memorable and challenging. Perhaps I was overthinking, but I kept telling myself that I wanted us to go out with a bang, as my Grandpa used to say. Though it was a common phrase and not original to him, I always knew it was his way of telling me to give it my very best. Don’t give up. Don’t slow down. End well.

Nothing I was coming up with seemed like a good ending… then it kind of hit me. Why not go with the idea of the word “Bang” for our last Ready Set Go Challenge. Define it how you’d like…

Include something on your card that makes a Bang, like fireworks or an old jalopy that backfires.

OR include something on your card that begins with each of the letters in the word B-A-N-G.

OR, since the word Bang has four letters in it, include four of something on your card.

OR… ???

No restrictions. You decide. But be sure to let us know how you defined Bang while making your card.

Ready. Set. Go!

My card's BANG features are...

B - Blue, Bloom

A - Apricot, Arch, Altenew

N - Night of Navy, Nuvo

G - Green, Glitter

The glitter doesn't show up well in the photos, but it's in the darker blue area of the blooms.

Be sure to check out Barb's blog and Kelly's blog to see what they did with this Ready Set Go theme!
