Challenge #71 Top 3

Happy Wednesday, everyone!
I hope you are having a great week so far.  
It is getting harder and harder to choose a Top 3 each week.  I guess that is a really good thing.  It means that all the entries are so  creative and of such high quality.  I thank everyone who takes the time and makes the effort to participate.
Now, down to business.  Here are our top 3 for Challenge 71:
Congratulations, ladies.
Now who will be our guest designer next week?  You will have to wait to find out.  
See you later!

It is time for another sketch here at Try Stampin'.  Jenn has been creating some good ones, don't you agree?  And this week is no exception.  Here it is:
As promised, this week begins our "guest designer" feature.
Let me welcome a very talented card maker - GRANDMA BONNIE .  
Bonnie is a regular participant in our challenges and her cards always bring a smile to my face.  I am sure you will agree that she is the perfect picks to be our first guest designer.  Her example is here:
And here are the examples from the Stampin' Friends team:





How's that for inspiration?  I cannot wait to see your entries.
Thanks so much to Grandma Bonnie for agreeing to be our guest designer this week.

Challenge #69 Top 3

Hi and happy Wednesday!

Each week, it is very difficult to pick the top three. It appears that each of you who enters our challenges is a very good card maker and a true artist. I marvel at the talent you display.  
Starting this week, I will be inviting one of the top three to be a guest designer for the following week.  I will contact that person by email as soon as I post the top 3.  But which one will be a secret until you see her work the following Tuesday.  So, who will be our first?  Check in next week to find out.

Our top 3 this week have a common theme... they all have either something to do with babies or they have an image of a child. OK, it might be a stretch to say they have a common theme but they are all really cute cards and they all brought a smile to my face.
Here they are:
Thanks to everyone who entered and congratulations to the winners!  Feel free to post our badge on your blogs for all the world to see.

Challenge #69

Good day to everyone!
I had to go across to Michigan to get gas this morning so I am running a bit behind.  Sorry about that.
Today's sketch is another one with LOTS of possibilities.
And here is what the team came up with:

Are you inspired?  I hope so.  I cannot wait to see your interpretations of our sketch.  Remember, it is simply a place to start.
