Hello everyone!

In this thread we will keep the calendar for all upcoming 90 Minute Scramble Challenges -- a challenge in which we try to create and upload a card in under an hour and a half! (Here's an example of how one works.) The specific challenge theme/criteria will be announced by each hostess at the starting time.

Thanks to those who have volunteered to host! Here is the schedule going forward, as well as links to past challenges:

Edit: Found a time 10:00am Pacific, which is 6:00pm London England time. I hope that will work for most people.

No problem, Tomo and Lai-Yoke.
There will be other chances coming up. We obviously can not cover all time zones, that's why we have different times of challenges! Whoever can play, please come!

natashakara (Natasha) 8 years ago
Trying to scramble to get everything done, and hoping I can actually make something in 90 minutes. I am very slow at making cards.
also had a question. I know you can't have layers of paper. but is it ok to have something like a butterfly stamped and colored and attached? Or is that not considered a one layer card?
rrlscrapgal (Andi) 8 years ago
Got all the dinner items 'prepped' and waiting for a 5 minute scramble to get them going later!

I think I'm ready!
Virginia L. 8 years ago
Now... this is the time to got to ..uh hmmmm, you know, wash room! 7 more min. to go now... :)
Sent hubby out for pizza and I'll mostly listen to Monday night football while I try to come up with a card! I'm really slow, too, but I'm up for the challenge--feeling good since I've taken this week off to get things done at home, like Thanksgiving and Christmas cards!
Natasha, why can't you have layers of paper on the card? With these challenges, the hostess will set the parameters, so unless Virginia says it's a one layer card, I think you can put layers of papers on the card... Virginia is free to correct me if I'm wrong... actually anyone can correct me if I'm wrong.
Virginia L. 8 years ago
The theme will be announced.... in 2 mins. in a new thread. Are you ready?
natashakara (Natasha) 8 years ago
ooops, my mistake. I thought the example Tami gave was the one we were using. Sorry my bad.
Virginia L. 8 years ago
tomoh08(Tomo) 8 years ago
Thanks Virginia for your response! Just enjoyed seeing and reading the topic about your Scramble Challenge.

I'm so interested in other challenges, but it may difficult to join them. Because, the time difference disturbs me. It's 16-17 hrs between the time zone 'PST' and my country. If I can get the chance to join you all, I would be play with. Thank you.

Very cool Virginia. the ribbons are gorgeous.

I am still deciding between two challenges, so Thursday might be a surprise for me too!! LOL .... actually I think I've decided, I just need to make a card in the hour and a half time limit and I'm done. :)
Jenifer Ann 8 years ago
That is a wonderful prize Virginia!

Looking forward to the challenge Karen and hoping I can join :)

I did the same goof Sharon! Thought I was doing well to upload mine with minutes to spare only to realize I was almost a half hour late!
Virginia L. 8 years ago
FYI the prize I showed above was from Operation Write Home Card Drive Scramble Challenge. For the upcoming Scramble challenge, the RAK (Random Act of Kindness will not be the same at all. I wonder what it will be, if any at all.... ;)
Looks like it's Karen's week!

Ladies, don't forget to check above for the day and time of her 90 minute scramble challenge! I'll be working during this one. :(

Hope you all have fun! Can't wait to see the theme and what you all create!

I am laughing at myself... I am still vacillating between a technique challenge and a colour challenge. I would do the technique, except for those not familiar with it, it could take a while to do.. I will have to do a sample card today, and time myself..and see if it's feasible. If it's not, the colour challenge it is.... yes, I am giving hints :)
Scrapper43(Dana) 8 years ago
Can't wait to see what you come up with. I missed out on this last time so I am gonna see what time it is for my area and hopefully take part tomorrow.

I'm definitely playing today (this afternoon, for me)! Yay! Looking forward to seeing if I can do it in 90 minutes this time! :)

Tami Hartley 8 years ago
Now that we've had 2 successful scrambles, let's add a couple more to round out the schedule! Looking to add 2 more hostesses for the weeks of Nov 15 and Nov 29. (Any days during those weeks.) Please reply here if interested. RAKs are completely optional. Thanks! :)
heather maria Posted 8 years ago. Edited by heather maria (member) 8 years ago
Tami, when I gave the times for my challenge, I hadn’t taken into account the fact that over here we are not actually on GMT from the end of March till the end of October. At the moment we’re an hour ahead of GMT and will be until 31st October.

I'm going to stick with the 3.00pm GMT start so all the times in the U.S. will still apply. But I just wanted to let anyone in Ireland or the UK know that the challenge will start at 4.00pm our time. If anyone has any questions about the times please feel free to Flickrmail me.

Hi there. I would love to play along with this scramble, but I am I bit doff (South African word for stupid!) when it comes to this whole time difference thing. Would someone PLEASE be able to tell me what time this will begin in South African time. I think we are about 7-8 hours ahead of you (which would probably mean I won't be able to play along) but I would like to make sure, because I would really like to play with :)

I hope everyone has a good time with the Challenge, I so wish I could play, I am sure I will have a nice time on our mini vacation and I think Hubby would flip if I tried to bring all my crafting stuff, the idea here is to get away from our normal Routine, and I do want to visit with my brother, so I will be missing this one, but will be watching from a far!! They do have internet there so I can pop in at least and see what you all have created!!!
Enjoy ladies,
