Challenge #217

Hello again, and welcome to Try Stampin' - Or Not.  It has been a hectic couple of weeks for me but I think things are beginning to settle down.  Hoping your world is good!

Our photo of the week is one I took this morning of rain drops on our new little tulips:
It is taken up very close so as to feature the droplets.  These are our very first tulips and my husband is very proud of them.

Unfortunately, there is no top three for challenge #215.  There were only three entries.  Here are the three cards we received:

Thank you, ladies, for participating in our challenge.  Your cards are lovely.

I am sorry to have to mention this but our designers put a lot of effort into their samples each week.  It is very disheartening to have more designer samples than entries a lot of the time.  If you want us to continue, we have to get the interest up.  And I am at whits end as to how to do that.  I have started a facebook page in conjunction with this site in hopes of increasing interest.  Please visit https://www.facebook.com/groups/1624326894466151
to check it out.  There are discussions and contests over there.  This month, any member of the facebook group who enters our sketch challenges here has a chance to win a prize.  The rules are posted over there.
I really hope we can get things going.  We have a great team who works really hard for you.

Now, on to our sketch for this week (courtesy of Lynda):
And here are the cards from our team:

Once again, beautiful cards, ladies.  Thanks so much for being on this team.  I know you have inspired our followers to create cards of their own.

See everyone later.

The "My First Entry" card is just lovely, but I can't get to a proper link to comment on it.
