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. Note: my Privacy Policy can be found at a tab below and you can find my NBUS Challenge online. I hope you'll join in the fun there! Thanks for coming by! Have a beverage and enjoy!


These are challenges I like to play in, with links to the sites and badges they want us to put in our posts, if we participate.  The challenges are in Alpha Betty order and the Christmas card challenges are at the end (CTL +End).

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.

Suzanne 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.

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.

Mary Gunn FUNN said...

GOOD heavens! What an inventory of challenges! So glad you shared. This could become a full-time job - tee hee.

Thank you so much for this list! I hope you don't mind that I added a challenge page to my blog and posted your list there. That way I can easily refer to it when I'm looking for a challenge to take part in. I can also add new challenges when I come across them. You're so generous to share this!
