Challenges! Challenges!

There are so many challenges out there and there is probably a brand new blog started everyday devoted to them but I've had some questions about what challenges I participate in sometimes so I thought I would take a little time to put them down in one place to share with you and for ME!!! 

MojoMonday Sketch challenge is always a good place to get your week off to a good start!  And on the first Monday of the month there are prizes!!!!

I like to visit Splitcoaststampers.  When I have time you can find me chatting on the message boards!  Over there they post a new challenge everyday (sometimes two) from new techniques to color combinations to sketches for both cards and scrapping!  My favorite and the one I try to always do is posted on Tuesdays and it is a color combination challenge. 

Color challenges must be my favorite because I also like to participate in The Play Date Cafe challenges.  They post a new color challenge every wednesday and have sponsors that give prizes for the "Cup of the Week"!  Plus, they have a badge rewards to post on blogs for their top picks as well!

Another GREAT color challenge is The Color Dare!!  They feature Stampin Up colors (but of course you can substitute with similar colors) with a new challenge every Wednesday! 

Since I love to use my Cricut to make crafts I of course was exciting to find Cricut Cardz Challenge blog!  They post a new challenge using the Cricut every Wednesday.  If you have a Cricut be sure and check them out!  FUN! 

I'm in a blog group Paptertrey Paper Dolls!  We used to post a new challenge every Thursday but now it is only every other Thursday.   The challenge link is up for over two weeks and can be anything.  It just depends on the host!  This is not just for our group anyone can participate so please check it out!

JUST RECENTLY STARTED!!  RIGHT HERE on Hiding in My Craft Room challenges posted every Saturday!  With a montly GIVEAWAY for one lucky participant with up to 5 chances to enter depending on how many weeks in that month!  The schedule for the weekly challenges is: 
1st week: A Color Challenge
2nd week: Super Scraps Saturday (even though you have all week!) - time to use up some of those SCRAPS! I personally need this challenge for myself!!!
3rd week: Try a Technique Week
4th week: Mix it Up! This challenge will vary from week to week!
5th week: Freestyle! This week you can enter with ANY creation!  So be sure and link up for a chance to win!

Another challenge blog I found through a blogging friend is The Paper Players.  They post a new challenge every Sunday.  I don't do much if any crafting or blogging on Sunday's but you have 6 days to get your challenge posted.  The type of challenge varies from week to week. 
Here's their challenge schedule
Week One: Theme Challenge
Week Two: Colour Challenge
Week Three: Clean and Simple Challenge
Week Four: Sketch Challenge
Week Five: Anything Goes

There are of course so many more challenges out there!  And of course, I don't even get all the ones I listed as some of my favorites done each week, but it's nice to at least check them out!

Please feel free to post in the comments your favorite challenge/s and share!  I would love to see what else is out there.

Thanks so much for visiting me while I am
Hiding in My Craft Room!

Be sure and check back tomorrow, probably late afternoon early evening.  I'm kicking off a challenge of my own with prizes!

Have a great crafting day!
