It's coming - my head is buzzing!

Edited August 28th
It's going to be BIG - but it's going to be small. It's something I'm hoping new & old can have fun with - for just a few moments a day! Any ideas yet?
(in case you haven't noticed I am trying to tease you - but it's not working is it??)
Two more days and I'll tell all - promise.
Edited August 30th
It is going to be an altered pack of cards (I'm thinking this is what you guessed Jenn) That's why there's a 52 in the picture above. 52 cards - 52 days - that makes it a BIG project. A deck of cards makes it a pretty small piece of art (everyday!). I'm thinking this is something old scrappers needing something different will love it, I'm thinking new scrappers will enjoy the smaller canvas.
It's going to be called "Reasons to be Cheerful" and yep, you guessed it, everyday you have to scrap a reason to be cheerful on an altered playing card. Even if one day the only reason to be cheerful is because the sky is blue - or the phone didn't ring - or the baby didn't puke!

I bought my deck of cards at the dollar store last week. I think a 2" binder ring should be man enough to hold all the cards together - and tied up with the (optional) ribbon. This is an ideal time to use paper scraps we've been saving - this does not need to be a colour co ordinating exercise - it's about realising how much we have to be happy about!

I'm using a joker to make the front & back covers in advance. That gives me 52 full days of fun.

We start on Tuesday September 4th. Any ideas why?

Are you with me - or am I doing it alone?

I don't want to be the only one posting a card every day - so I want yours too!

EDITED AGAIN August 30th
I've nearly finished Jenns challenge - anyone else. Send it to me to post!

Stamp club is next week Friday September 7th at fionas - did everyone get the email?

Pausing... for a brief commercial break

Brought to you by Jennifer Gibson.

This is coming to you a little late, and I am feeling rather guilty about it.

I was honored with the task of posting a challenge on July 30th, and as usual, life got in the way.

So without further adieu, here is another installment in the "All About Me" series of challenges.

This one is going to get you digging into your past. What do you remember most from your childhood?

Is it...

-cabbage patch kids
-leg warmers
-puffy, smelly stickers
-birthday parties at Mc Donalds

Or maybe it's...

-wearing lots of "plaid"
-loving the Brady Bunch
-Bazooka or Bubble Yum
-having to get off the couch to change the TV channel
-The Love Boat

You know your a child of the 70's/80's when...
