Why I Love Challenge Blogs

I have been putting off making two special Thanksgiving cards. I wanted to tell two friends how thankful I am for them and their friendship. And yet I have not been able to get to it. Then tonight as I was blurfing, I came across a new challenge site via my friend Kris' blog. It's called Art Creations Friday. They share an image and you create something with it.This gorgeous image is the one they are sharing for their very first challenge. Isn't it just gorgeous? I immediately was inspired to create at least one of the cards I needed to make.
You'll definitely want to check out this challenge blog:http://artcreationsfriday.blogspot.com/
