Question Challenges?

Hi everyone,

I am certainly not stamping as much as I wish to, and unfortunately, my supplies are just sitting. I'm a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and I have a very neglected blog... I was hoping that if I participated in challenges I'd be stamping some more.

Besides the challenges here on SCS, where do you participate, and why do you like that particular challenge? I've played in the Play Date Cafe before which is a color challenge group, and those ladies are super sweet, I've also played with Pals Paper Arts.

What others do you suggest?

Thanks in advance so much!
Melissa

I like (and you can google them....I'm on my iphone and can't link):

Freshly made sketches
Colour Q
The Paper Players
Hand Stamped Sentiments - I'm on the DT
Create with Connie & Mary

These are the ones I play most often!

I keep a list of the ones I participate in and when I participate in a new one I add it to my list. Check out the "Blogs I follow" page on my blog, Cuts, Crops and Creativity! for the list.

Sketch challenges are my favorites. Here are a few I have bookmarked:

The Sweet Stop
Mojo Monday
Deconstructed Sketch
iSpy Sketches

and other non-sketch challenges I like:

Flutterby Wednesday's
iCopic Lover
CAS-ual Fridays

Can't wait to see what others recommend... I love a good challenge!

I have gotten into a habit of saving challenges to my google reader and make a folder for each day of the week; however, I do both digital and regular stamping. It's a great tool for checking on challenges regularly. Doing a google search byu daily challenges, is a great way to find challenges
here are a couple for monday challenges:

If you like the CAS style, the Less is More blog is popular - weekly challenge with a different take each week (colour, one layer, theme, sketch/recipe). For example, this week is one layer week and the theme is stripes. Here's the link: Less is More

Hope you find something to get you stamping!

I had never participated in any challenges until I did the Hope You Can Cling To challenges to support breast cancer awareness month last October. It was a blast!! I swore that I would continue doing challenges after that month was over because I felt it really made me stretch creatively. Unfortunately, I've only done a couple of challenges here on SCS since then. Have you checked out the challenge thread on here? There's a challenge for every day of the week

Didn't realize until I was attempting to go through feline play site; how many challeges are digital images. I much prefer to save my daily challenges to a google reader, and have a select few good ones. I can't imagine how much time she spent getting that list together each week......

Me? Can you guess I'm pretty partial to the TCP Tuesday Challenges?

There are five different challenges to play, a different one each week to keep you interested. And there are prizes...
