Paper Crafts 75 Challenges

One of the latest Special Edition Magazines from Paper Crafts is their 75 Creative Card Challenges issue which gives you 75 challenges to play with.  I ordered my issue and decided to try and play along with all 76 challenges (they threw in a 76th one online!) as that seemed like an interested way to start 2013.   You can find a full list of the challenges and link to the issue here but below is my link list to all the blog posts where I will be featuring the challenges as I cross them off my list
