  1. i'm confused becuase i see there are 2 different deadlines: above the color sample is September 22 & below the color names is December 22.

    1. Typo Karen! Sorry... fixed it now, it should read deadline 22nd September as in the picture. Thanks for letting me know! xxx

  2. Is this still a card in 20 minutes challenge or has that rule gone?

    1. Hi Elaine!
      I decided to get rid of the 20 minute rule, as crafters all work at different speeds. What may take one person 20 minutes might take another an hour! The general idea is that the cards are of a fairly simple nature though, something any level of crafter can attempt. I want to have loads of cards in the gallery, not loads of step by step instructions taking up the space. Hopefully that helps! xxxxx
