I'm so very excited to announce that on Tuesday, November 6th, I will be celebrating my 5th year of blogging!!!!

I can't believe that it has already been 5 years of fun.  I would have NEVER imagined back then how it is now.  I'm addicted to blogging and everything that revolves around it...the crafting...the community...the sharing...being inspired....

Don't you love my Blogaversary badge?  Thee wonderful Karen Baker designed that for me!   For those that have been following me for awhile may remember that back in the day I loved crowns and chandies....she threw in the Mason Jars that I love now and I've always loved tags but check it out....the text on that tag is the text from my very first blog post!  That Karen is a GENIUS!!!!!!

Answer this question:

What's one of your favorite challenge sites?

My answer:


  1. I have really been loving Elle's Studio Sketches right now - they are really flexible and while I do mostly card challenges, it helps me put a dent in scrapbooking!

  2. That is a hard question as I love so many but my favorites would be Merry Monday and Sweet Sunday.

  3. Morning my friend!!
    Favorite challenge site...that is a hard one...I love retrosketches, but also having fun with cas(e) this sketch! and cas-ual fridays :)

  4. Oh gees, choose one? I guess it would be Outlawz because of the variety! If a sketch challenge then SFYTT because I have been following it since I first started blogging. Happy 5!!!!!

  5. New favorite is cas(e) this sketch!

  6. Can it be ones I'm on the DT for? Artful Delight and 365 Cards? I'm also a sucker for PDC.

  7. This time I used Mr. Dandy's photo.. cause again.. let's face it ... he is even pretty than his Mama :) I need to go searching ... cause I don't remember seeing Day 2 -- or is it I missed Day 3 altogether??!?!?!?!? :)

    My fave challenges are -- LESSology ;) Lily Bee, Bella Blvd ... Child's Play, Bo Bunny :)

  8. Congrats on your 5 years of blogging! That is one fabulous badge Karen designed for you. :)


  9. I have been out of the loop with challenges lately, but have done Mojo Mondays. They have fabulous card designs.

  10. Happy 5th Blogoversary Amy!!
    Love the banner Karen made for you!!!
    My current fave is 10 Minute Craft Dash!

  11. ohhh that is a hard one, it changes from week to week.. 365 of course, but lately my scraps sketch, creative scrappers or maybe elles studio sketches

  12. hmm I love sketch challenges. Let;s see Jingle Belles to encourage me to work on Christmas cards, CAS-ual Fridays, Simon Says Stamp, Lawnscaping and MORE!

  13. I love Jay Gees & Play Date- and sooo many others- need more time!! :D

  14. Love that badge - so YOU! Have to say I love CASual Fridays. Been playing there for awhile. Also think CASology is pretty darn clever.

  15. i like the simos says stamps challenge

  16. hmmm... hard to choose... I love OUAS & Skissedilla... for card I love CAS & Retro sketches...


    ooo...congrats once again !! 5 is awesome...

  17. Hmmm..I'd say ColourQ or CASE this them a ton!

  18. Just recently (past few months) started using card challenges...favs include Paper Smooches sparks,Annabelle and Jay Gee's Nook.

  19. Is it alright to choose a challenge I started? I love the Runway Inspired Challenge!

  20. I love sketch challenge sites. Current fave is Skissedilla. :)

  21. I really love Moxie Fab World - it's got to be my favourite - but of course I'm also partial to Shopping our Stash, Tuesday Morning Sketches, and Playing in Paradise ;)

  22. My favorite challenge sites are anything CAS!

  23. I like the sketch challenges on OWH.

  24. I have some definite faves that I check out everytime, but I think 10 minute craft dash is my fave. It really forces me to look at my stash and to choose a theme and products BEFORE I get started. And, I really like the cards that come out of it! It seems like I care less about being perfect and more about basic designs

  25. My favorite challenge site is the ColourQ!

  26. I like Retrosketches, Casual Fridays, The Paper players and color Q. I couldn't choose only one.

  27. Ohhhh! There are so many great challenge sites out there, but my favourite challenge site is ScrapFIT!!

  28. Oh but how I wish I had time to do challenges! As it is, with a fulltime job and grandmother duties and keeping hubby happy, there just aren't enough hours in the day to have fun with challenges! But I do love seeing the projects from these challenges!

  29. Love this one--it's always Alice in Wonderland related!
