    cool 52 Cards Challenge 2012

    Welcome to the thread for this year's 52 Cards challenge!

    Those of you who joined in with the 2011 challenge will be quite familiar with how this works but there are a few little changes this year - namely to the prompts.

    What is it?
    A no-stress challenge aimed at getting you to make a card a week in 2012.
    Each week I will post prompts to my blog - these will either be:
    • 3 prompts randomly picked from the prompt jar
    • Photo inspiration from Pinterest, etc. (that you can interpret in any way that you like: colours, layout, design elements, product - it's up to you!)
    • Design elements or themes
    • An existing card design that you can use as a sketch to create your own interpretation

    All you need to do is use the prompts as inspiration to create a card and share it here on the thread. Easy as that.

    If you can't include all elements of a prompt, don't worry - there are no rules, the aim is simply to get creating!

    Where are the prompts?
    All prompts past and present can be found here at my blog.

    When are they posted?
    The prompts go live every Monday morning at around 8.30 a.m. Due to work hours I schedule the blog post for challenge prompts so it's available at the same time and same place each week. I am sure some kind soul could list the prompts here on the thread for anyone having difficulties visiting the blog.

    So all that remains to say is... see you Monday for week one!


    * Prompts for the 2017 Pantone Card Challenge can be found here. *

    Will love to do this when I can but may miss the first couple of weeks. My mum died on boxing day and funeral is next week. Also having a memorial service down in Surrey the following week as that's where most of her friends and many family members are.

    So sorry to hear of your sad loss Barbara. My thoughts are with you and your family xxx

    I have looked at the posts with this in the past, but really need to get crafting and want to get cards made using my scraps, so will try and take part in this challenge each week

    I'd love to try this. I have so much stuff to use up. Not sure if I will manage each week but thought if I tried to do at least 2 per month it would be a start

    Barbara, I am really sorry to hear about your mum. I am also very sorry to hear about your cousin Yvette.

    We also had a death the day after Boxing Day very sudden too. My husband's brother, we are still all in shock and the funeral is also for next week. Not exactly the start of a Happy New Year for many of us it seems.

    Dad is still in hospital so I will fit in as and when I can as usual. I'm just glad this is going ahead as I look forward to the prompts even if I don't always have time to take part.

    Thanks again for doing this Nat. By the way, what is Pinterest? I've heard of it but haven't a clue what it is, I suppose I could Google it.
