Birthday Bash 2011! Master list of challenges

It's our birthday month, so we're having a party all month long! The anniversary of the day we were made a 501(c)(3) is September 12th...but a month-long celebration is so much more fun than just a day, don't you think? Leave comments on this post all month long and be entered into a drawing for a prize at the end of the month - tell us what you're thinking about all the great challenges!

With our recent blogger problems, and the need to test out a new blog template, we've got a master post at the top of our blog (this one) and it'll stay here with the growing list of challenges that get added. Be sure to check in daily to find out what's new!

Mark our birthday weekend on your calendar too - we'll have a Virtual Cardmaking Party with challenges every TWO HOURS! Wooohoo!

    I got a few good days off so I am spending the time to play along with all the challenges. So far, they are way cool and I hope to get a whole box ready to go out in the next 2 weeks. Happy Birthday OWH!!!

    Yolanda  – (September 4, 2011 at 7:45 PM)  

    Thanks for putting the master list here! Maybe in a few days I'll be caught up and can start playing.

    Is this a new blog, or a web site? I feel a bit lost. LOL

    Same blog - we had to try to fix things in the code because Blogger blew up our template; this one only partially works. Agh, html. If only there were more hours in the day to fix things.

    It's great to have the entire list in one place... makes it quick and easy to check in and to figure out if you've missed anything.

    Love the master list in one spot. Had a great weekend at a cabin with no INTERNET so will start on the challenges tonight after work. TFS

    Ann  – (September 6, 2011 at 11:28 AM)  

    I, too, love this masterlist list all in one spot. So far, I've been able to play along!

    Kate  – (September 7, 2011 at 4:14 PM)  

    Oh, have mercy! This was a bad time for my computer to give out. Am just catching up on things. I see I have quite a bit of catching up to do in challenges as well!

    Jeremy and Samantha  – (September 7, 2011 at 10:27 PM)  

    I love the master list and hope I get to play along with some of the challenges this month and especially this weekend. Thank you all for the hard work that you put in.

    Happy Birthday OWH! I didn't realize we had the same birthday, aren't we special ;)

    I miss the old blog style. It seems like there are so many posts and so many contests going on at the same time I don't know where to begin. When I post a link to one of my cards I'm not getting any viewers - they probably don't want to go back to the older posts.

    Barb's Boys Inspired  – (September 25, 2011 at 10:57 AM)  

    Some of us can only play on the weekend and it's hard to know which challenges are still accepting entries...I'd love to play them all, but don't have the time! It sure would be nice to have a date on each challenge...some of them (Bo Bunny) don't have a link to post to...

    I sure am loving the inspiration though!

    I have made over 500 cards with my group of cardmakers to donate through a near-by scrapbooking store, but I've never been to this site before. I'm so glad I found it because we can use the challenges to make many more!
    Thank you for doing what you do for our troops!
