Blogoversary x 2- Blog candy offered

This Saturday 12/5 is my two year blog-o-versary.
To celebrate I am offering some fun embellishment blog candy (see pic).
One of my favorite things is to do challenges to get my mojo going. I have been super busy lately and haven't had a chance to play along with many.
Tell me your favorite place to do stamping challenges, name. I will winning entry this weekend.

I love to work with sketches. My favorite places for challenges are Jen Del Muro's "Sketch for you to try" every Saturday and "Mojo Monday". Those two sites always get my creative juices flowing!

I like the Mojo Monday, but I have yet to participate! Just another thing on my stamping to do list. Great candy!

I like doing the sketches over at Stamping 411. They now have color challenges too. It's a lot of fun to participate and also be an Operator there and see everyone's gorgeous work.

I love to do the ones from LateNightStampers and Gretchen Barren, and Carole'Anne has some fun ones on her blog, too. I don't always post mine, but they do get the creative juices flowing.

thanks for sharing

My favorites are the DCBD (Diva Coffee Break Designs) challenges. There are others I follow (LNS, Stamping 411, Mojo Monday, and several I can't think of right now), but DCBD has my heart... for now. LOL!

I am trying to get more into the challenges, I have mostly been looking and observing the great ideas! LNS is where I usually go first.

congrats on the 2 year anniversary!!

My favorite place to get inspirations from are actually two places -- the first is from the Technique Junies newsletter. the second is not one place but from fellow stampers!

Congratulations on your blog anniversary!!!!!!!!

I have not started doing any stamping challenges. I like looking at Splitcoast Stampers for the real great talent and new creations.

I love doing Mojo Monday and Stamping 411. I don't always do them or show what I do but I try to use sketches to get the Mojo flowing. Thanks for the chance to win blog candy. I love your blog.

Congrats on your 2nd Blogaversary, Kathy!!!
I too like to work with sketches, but I've found a newer challenge blog that really stretches your creativity, as they vary the challenge week-to-week (Color, Sketch, Technique, 3-D/Template, Wild Card) -- really fun! It's called JUGs (Just Us Girls) and is here:
Have fun & hope to see you there!

Congratulations on your blog anniversary!

For the most part I do MOJO Monday when I get a chance although I don't get to quite often enough.

Keeping my fingers crossed that I win the blog candy!

Keep up the good work!

I love Splitcoast Stampers and My pink stamper. Great sites to get my mojo going.

Gail said...

Hi, I'm Gail Woods. There is one particular individual stamper that really comes to mind for me.
Her website is mychicnscratch. She has some great ideas, but mostly she is so willing to share how she does her projects. I also check SCS regularly, especially for something other than a card. These are both an inspiration to me.

So far I have only done challenges with LNStampers, but I love the ones with Mojo Monday and hope to join in on hers soon. Love the candy!

Hi! I like the LNS challenges. I just found the I'm A Big Shot challenge. It looks pretty new, but interesting. stamin_sue at

Laura said...

Hi Kathy,

I don't get to participate in challenges all that often, but when I do, my favorite place is at Sudsol's Chat & Challenge. Doing the live chat during the challenge makes it so much fun!

I love the challenges on LNS even though I don't participate in them as yet. Thanks for offering bldg candy!

Janice Webb said...

Congrats on your 2 year blog anniversary!

My favorite challenge is Mojo Monday followed by StampTV.

Nana Jo said...

I haven't been doing any challenges yet. I am just beginning to only looking to get ideas to see what I can learn.

I'm a newbie, and just getting into the challenges. I'm working on my very first one right now!! Yeah!!!

Elaine said...

Congratulations on your second anniversary. I love sketches too and get most of my inspiration from Sudsol or other blogs.

Claudia said...

My favorite place is in my "studio" (formally called the craft room, but I thought studio sounded more professional) LOL!
Congrats on your blog-o-versary!

jmniffer said...

I don't do as many challenges as I would like. The few I have accomplished are from SCS and Stamping 411. Thanks for the chance to win some fun candy.

Happy Blog-a-versary! It's a toss-up between 411 and LNS. They both have such great challenges. Thanks for a chance to win such great blog candy!

I like the sketches and the projects from Late Night Stampers in any of the challenges. My goal for 2010 is to do more. I didn't have a lot of time this year to do any.

Happy blogoversary :)

I don't get to do many challenges...but I love checking out SCS for awesome ideas! Congrats on your Blogoversary!!!

I enjoy sketches and am always amazed at how different all the cards are that different stampers create. I would say that Mojo Monday, Stamping 411 and Gretchen Barron are my favorite, but once in awhile I will look in my scrapbook catalogs for simple layouts and create cards by using them. :)
Congratulations on 2 years blogging. I'm relatively new to blogging and hope to stick w/ it and be consistent for that long.
Happy Holidays and Best Wishes,
Wendy Hawkinson
