Addicted to Create a Critter

Seriously, every time I go to make a new project my only criteria is "I will NOT use Create-a-Critter". I feel like I use it way too often and am neglecting all my other beautiful cartridges. Yet, every time I come up with a project and the picture I need to have just isn't on any of my other ones. (Well, usually the image I MUST have I don't own and a new cartridge gets added to my amazon wish list!)

I have a baby shower to attend and wanted to make a card but had "writer's block". So, I decided to check out some ongoing challenges and got some inspiration from those. I've often looked at the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge ,but have never entered it. Today their cupcake was perfect for my project!

I am also entering this project into the following challenges:
 2 Sisters Challenge Blog (use stitching). One day I might try real stitching - not quite that ambitious yet!
Crazy 4 Challenges (use stripes and polka dots). 
Desert Island Crafts Challenge (I used # 1, 3, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10). At first I thought you had to use all the items on the list, and was relieved when I realized you didn't. I LOVED having a recipe to follow - really helped pull my project together! I was using all browns, but added some green for the challenge and love it!

Where do you all find the challenges you participate it? Do you keep a list? I have just depended on a list my sister (Crafting Misfit) has on her blog. Does anyone else have a good link to different challenges?
