A Try of Challenges...

Does anyone know if there actually is a Collective Noun for challenges?

I couldn't find one and liked the 'Some That Might Be' section in the link above,
so made up my own!

A TRY of Challenges!

I feel a little competition here - just for fun....
What's your idea for a Collective Noun for our Card Challenges???

Your ideas.......

Helen - A satisfaction of challenges!
LOVE that one Helen - perfect, I wish I'd thought if it!

Violet - A trial of challenges!
another great one - why are all of your ideas better than mine ;)

craftyhallett - a confusion of challenges!
Aaaaarrrh! - that is spot-on! How many of us fall into this category???

Lisa M - a cluster of challenges!
I Like!
And just like Lisa my desk is all a-cluster after making challenge cards...or should that be all a-clutter?
 Ooow I feel another one coming on.....

Me - a clutter of challenges!
Thanks Lisa :)

Enough of the 'babble' - on to my card......

I'm afraid to say I've not joined in with some of my favourite challenges as much as I'd like recently so managed to merge a few into this one card for today...

I've used 3 images from Penny Black, T for Transparent - Critter Party.
They are coloured with Promarkers and covered in Crackle Glaze to give a little more interest.

Challenges I'd like to enter...

Less is More - Sketch

Penny Black Saturday - Stitch it up! - I have added faux stitching around the DP panel.

Passion For Promarkers - Park Life - My 2 mice and butterfly-chasing cat are doing so in the park on this sunny Sunday morning!

Penny Black at Allsorts - Your Favourite (stamp) - Too Hard to pick....any stamp that has PB written on it is my Favourite!

Papertake Weekly - Here Comes The Sun!

  6. What a cute card, love the crackle effect you've created. Many thanks for sharing it at Penny Black at Allsorts.

    Mmm, sometimes as when trying to pick just one PB stamp, it can feel like a trial of challenges, lol!

    Warm hugs

  7. Hi Carol,
    Your card is gorgeous. Beautiful images and colours.

  8. very pretty little card, and great idea with the crackle glaze - and if I might chip in on your collective noun of challenges "a confusion of challenges", as thats what happens with me, I always forget which card idea is for which one!
