A site for my handmade cards, accompanied by my photos and written meanderings which are occasionally witty, often tongue-in-cheek, and rarely profound. Beginning in June 2013, you'll also see lots of NBUS, which is an acronym I coined for Never-Before-Used-Schtuff. Feel free to join in, use the acronym, and use up your NBUS too! Thanks for coming by! Have a beverage and enjoy!


Badges?  We DO need stinkin' cute badges! 

These are challenges I like to play in, along with the badges they want us to put on our sites, if we participate.  I'm putting mine on a page, rather than on the side bar, because the side bar would be so long if I put them there, it would be down around your feet as you sat at your computer.

Are you kidding me, I had no idea there were this many challenges as I stick to two.

Lesley said...

Thank you for adding me to your list, Darnell. You are so supportive and I appreciate your friendship.

Beverly G said...

Since I've been MIA for awhile I decided to look at the challenges you participate in. Some I recognize and some are new to me. I now know where to come to find challenges to play in as I get more creative time in my studio.

Sue Reynolds said...

Great idea, now I know where to come for challenges. I'll be back. I may add a page of challenges I have entered in, right now I have them on an excel sheet to go to quickly to see what other challenges my card will meet, but my list is a lot shorter. Thank you for sharing.

Christy Q said...

Thanks for this compilation, Darnell!! I've been out of the game for so long (even shut down my blog for a few months since Mr. Mojo deserted me) so I really appreciate your list here. Now I know where to go when I am stumped for inspiration and need a swift kick in the rear! :)

Bonnie Lynn said...

Wow! I didn't realize there were this many challenges out there myself. Thanks for the list and the inspiration.
