Well, a day late.  I am sorry.  I do not know how but I did not schedule this correctly and when I was looking at the blog this morning, I noticed there was no Top 3.  
The cards last week were once again awesome.  I do not know how you ladies always manage to be so creative.  Picking three was really difficult but here the choices:
All three are so creative and them.  Ladies, please feel free to grab our badge to display on your blogs.
Thanks to all who participated.
