A Little Bit of This and That

 
Good Morning, Blogging Friends.
 
Please be sure to read the final note at the end for a link to an amazing site if you love entering your designs in challenges.
 
Hubby and I had a nice anniversary.  We went out to dinner without going off our food plan and received anniversary phone calls from both of our daughters, so it was a good day!
 
Here's the CAS card I made for the hubs.  I used my eBosser (anniversary gift to myself LOL) to cut the mats and flourish using some of my Spellbinders dies.  The sentiment is a My Creative Time stamp (love the quality of Emma's stamps!).  The paper is DCWV Bella Armoire.
 
 
 
 
I have been cruising around bloggie world to update my Challenge notebook.
 
CHALLENGE NOTEBOOK? you ask.
 
Yes, I'm a little binder crazy and I made a binder with weekday dividers.  On the cover sheet of each divider I list some of the challenge sites and their blog addresses.  Then behind each divider I have printed 9-box charts, one for each week.  I can write what each challenge is in the boxes and include any notes, recipes, sketches, etc. needed to follow the challenge guidelines.   This way, I can go through my book and see which challenges might coordinate and design projects accordingly. I also mark which ones I want to make projects for and then the ones I actually entered.  I can also add ideas for die cuts, digis, stamps, layouts, etc. that I want to use - the charts are great for planning
 (I AM a planner!!)
 
THEN
 I met a blogger who led me to the most amazing site. 
FELINE PLAYFUL
The name is misleading but if you love challenges, you really must visit.
Chris has a team of volunteers who list all the challenges and winners everyday!!!
It's unbelievable - you'll find all the information you need for almost every challenge out there and it's updated every day.  And, if you enter challenges, you can check back for the list of winners.
 
Have a lovely weekend!  I'm heading for a twelve-hour crop so I'd better finish packing my crafty goodies!
