New Challenges

Sometimes I get a bit tired of by all the cliches or sayings that are thrown around all the time especially in the know what I mean? 

However since I started carding I have become a believer in the cliche / saying "we need challenges " in life.

And nothing beats finding exciting new challenge sites as i have with Play Date cafe and Case Study.

 I love a warm friendly manner , whether it be in a shop, a restaurant  or on a blog , lets face it the food can be great and the cards stunning but it's that  little something that makes you want to go back again and both these challenge sites fit the bill (cliche?) Take time to pay them a visit you will not be dissappointed.

So I have made a card for both these challenges .

A colour challenge at Play Date Cafe and Case the card at Case Study
And here is my card

I am also entering in the following challenges Crafty Ann's Birthday Card challenge,Crazy 4 Challenge which asks for flowers as does One Stop Craft Challenge with Spring flowers.
Have a wonderful week .
I hope to be doing a whole lot of blog hopping this week.

  4. Hi there Wendy, love both cards but the girly one tickles my fancy... you've made it so beautifully!!! I love the sentiment, is it a local one??? I totally agree with your sentiment. When I visit blogs, I love reading the posts, as well as admiring the cards and if that appeals to me then I'll visit again and again. Take care, Sharon
