Links to Challenges

I am going to just do a list of Challenges I take part in or think would be worth checking out to see if I can find a way to keep track and not spend ages looking everywhere for what challenges there are.

I do check through the links below but have found a better alternative. Much easier

Click on the image and it will take you to the blog. Its brilliant, totally brilliant. They list Challenges under Days they run. They also list whether the challenges are weekly, fortnightly, monthly, type of Challenge. They also show sketches and colour inspirations and use a key that links to the side letting you know if there are restrictions or conditions. 

Here goes:

AAA Cards - Sunday Challenge
Mention and link us within your card post and include the challenge game image.
Please visit at least 3 other folks and leave a nice comment. It's fun to make friends. 
(Please join Followers and help us grow) 
 Keep it CAS/Modern/nearly clean.
Play....use the image to figure out what to use and Play Around, have fun and make a card.
Enjoy...make your card from Sketch and Colors Inspired by a guest designer and CASE out the example
Create... Use the technology of your card making tools to their fullest by Creating with new ideas  
    Washi Call Out...And "Just for Fun" we'll have a best washi user call out each week. Please don't use washi all the time for our challenges. But if you happen to be using it on a of the week gets a Call Out! and wins the Washi badge

  • Rubber or Digi
  •  Doesn't appear to be a limit to entries numbers or numbers of challenges entered
A Blog Named Hero need to use at least one Hero Art Product

1. You may enter a maximum of 5 times --however entering multiple cards that use identical 'layouts' but vary only in colour/embellishment etc, is not acceptable. 
2. We would prefer it if you would use at least one (or more!) Hero Arts products on your project--this is  after all, a Hero Arts-dedicated blog!
3. If you share the project you enter on your blog, please link back to A Blog Named Hero--you are welcome to use our graphic.  Entries that are not linked back to ABNH will not be included in the chance to win.
4. Winners of the Gift Certificate will be chosen by Any other projects we feel deserve special mention, will be awarded 'Heroine' status, and a blinkie to display on their blog/site.
5. Please only submit projects that are new (i.e. made for this challenge, not an older project that 'fits' )
6. You do NOT have to make a card. It can be any type of project.
7. If your submitted project does not fit within the theme of the challenge, it will not be included in the chance to win, NOR will our DT members comment on the entry.  It will be deleted from the inlinkz collection, to ensure the drawing of the winner, is not affected.
8. You may enter up to 5 (five) challenges, including ours, with the one entry. We are more than happy for you to enter other challenge blogs, but beyond 5 for the one project, we feel, takes away from the entire point of our blog, which is to inspire creativity (not just offer a prize :)) 
9. Only entries submitted through the inlinkz Link Manager will be accepted ** unless unusual circumstances arise (e.g. The Inlinkz tool doesn't work). This will be decided upon when the need arises.
 10. When posting your project to the linky tool, be sure to use the URL of the specific blog post or photo and not just your blog address or entire photostream.
11. If for any reason we are unable to contact (or are not contacted by) the winner of the Gift Certificate, we will draw a new winner using
12. Please refrain from using digital images that have been coloured digitally (or come pre-coloured). The whole point of cardmaking/crafting, is to make one-of-a kind projects, and using pre-coloured images moves away from this.
