WE have almost done this one now but here is how it works!
You sign up to the group. Auntyquanted usually does all the organising! Then each member gets 2 challenge chums. You make a card of a theme chosen, this one was a wedding card. And after you've made your card send all the bits and pieces used to the other 2 chums! They then have to make a card using the bits.
When everyone is done, we all load our cards on the yahoo site and see each others work!

This is the first one I have done
We had to vote on the theme, in challenge 3 it was wedding
We then had to make a wedding card
We then had to send the bit& bobs we used to make the card to two nominated members (To make it easy and so it was well organised for us AQ told us who to send them to)

The two recievers of the B&Bs make a card.
The fun is seeing what the recievers make out of your B&Bs

You post the B&B on the yahoo website, then the reciever post their card made with your B&Bs then you post your card
Sound complicated I panicked at first but AQ makes it easy she organises everyone.
It's great fun

Champs - no really, I am lazy when it comes to things like this!!! Besides, I don't think I'm creative enough. After seeing the gallery I think I'll leave to the professionals (was going to type pros but thought best not to!!)
