Dare to Get Dirty Challenges

Over at Splitcoaststampers, the Dare to Get Dirty challenges have been going on all week!  There are 5 challenges a day so at the end I made 35 cards!  Have you been playing along too??

Being newly retired meant I could make my 5 cards each day at my leisure and not into the middle of the night after work -  what a thrill!!  

We are not supposed to disclose the exact details of the challenge as participants need to be a member of the SCS Fan Club but I have listed their titles here so perhaps you can figure it out?!!?

Here are the first 5 cards I made:
The Challenge:  Let it Run

The Challenge:  Block It Out
I'm linking this card to the Merry Monday Summer Challenge:
From Feb 2017 challenge - clean and simple

The Challenge - The Eyes Have It
The Challenge - Resistance is Not Futile
The Challenge -  In the Background
I'll be posting more of my cards over the next week!

Good for you, Julia! Doing these challenges is quite an undertaking. I'm amazed that you have managed so many!

Loll said...

WOW! That's a huge accomplishment to keep up with all the challenges. I tried one year and failed (and yes, I was retired at the time!). :) I think I managed to enter six or seven challenges this year, which is more than I expected. :)

Anyways, great cards, Julia. They are all so creative and unique! xx

Well done on 35 cards, Julia - fantastic! Just love the ones you posted today, especially the "let it run" - very cool. Your Merry Monday entry (which brought me to this post) looks great with the strips of patterns!
