Challenge #205

Good day to everyone!  I hope you are having a great February and are not snowed in.  I thank my lucky stars that we do not have the snow that Boston has (we have enough, thank you).  My first order of business is seeking your help.  We used to have lots of entries and now are struggling to get at least three.  Please send me any suggestions you may have and also any ways you think I can make this a better challenge site.  My designers have given me lots of ideas and they will be implemented in the near future.  Later this month, Try Stampin' will be four years old and I hope to start off our fifth year with a huge birthday bash.  (Please email me at cherylsteve.robinson@shaw.ca with any ideas.  I am open to try anything to keep us going)
The photo this week is a hockey one...sports photography is my love.
Now for the top three from Challenge #203 (in no particular order):

Three very different and stunning cards!  Congratulations, ladies!

For this week's challenge, I created a Valentines inspired sketch...but by no means do you have to make a Valentines card.  Please, create what you want using our simple sketch.
Here are the cards our designers came up with.

Gorgeous cards, ladies!  As you can see, our sketch is simply a starting point.  Interpretation is up to you.  I cannot wait to see the cards we get.
Thanks to all who stop by this week and hope you find some time to craft!

I hope this is okay. It is my first time coming to your blog and my second month of entering challenges. If it is not right, please delete it.

I've tried a few times to post to this challenge but always have difficulty. This time I used the generic linky. I've posted on other challenges and not had any difficulty.
Any suggestions?

Thank you SO much for choosing my card as part of your top 3! I have added your 'winner button' to my blog and hope that helps a little bit with the challenge entries. Maybe another thought might be for another button for just promoting the blog? Just thinking out loud. Thank you again!
