Default What do you look for in challenges?

Hey
I'm wondering what everyone looks for in challenges, something easy to follow, different etc? I am starting some card sketch challenges and want to get ideas on what people look for. And what makes you do one over another?
Thanks!
Jayni

I look for something that has 2 or 3 layers. For the layers to be easy sizes to cut -1/4", 1/2" increments not 5/16. If I'm making more than one card can I do this layout in an assembly line format. Most of all can I use items from my existing stash rather than always having to buy new stuff.

I don't look for anything specific when entering challenges, it just depends on what mood I'm in! It's hard to cater for everyone, good luck in your venture.

Thanks for the input! Having a hard time getting crafters to participate, think I'm gonna start doing videos with them since I thankfully have over 600 YouTube subscribers.... this is kind of a new venture for me and out of my comfort zone, just trying to make my blog more interactive!

I checked out your blog and really like your sketches. Are your sketch challenges listed on The Daily Dare and Feline Playful? If so, sorry I missed them. I'm not getting much me time for stamping lately. Don't get discouraged, it takes awhile for some challenges to catch a good following. Best of luck to you!

I like sketches when I'm stumped for ideas. I like things that are somewhat generic or easy. Sometimes, too many rules is hard for me to wrap my head around
