  • Hi Thelma, please refresh your page to see all the challenges. Everytime it’s time for a new challenge, refresh the page.
    If it’s not exactly up “on the nose” … I am working on it to get it up, just may be a few minutes behind as I am also at work today.
    Thanks!

  • Hey Lisa, I hear you’re a comment moderator, which is perfect, cuz I has a question for you. For your challenge – and knowing that my supply stash up here in MN is quite limited – my only glitter IS embossing powder. Can I combine those two elements as one thing on my project? Or do you want to assign me an additional element?

  • Hi Norine, That works for me, I totally understand you have limited supplies. If you have something else shiny you could use that too, but I’ll accept what you have. 🙂

  • Hi Denise,
    So happy you are participating.
    If you refresh your page, the Bonus game should be showing.
    If that isn’t what you meant, please let me know.
