Challenge #307

Good morning,
Before I begin I want to apologize for the look of the sidebar.  I am in the midst of changing - or adding- new photos of the design team and have not received new ones from everyone so have not fixed all of the sizes so some are larger than others.  By next week, this should be all fixed up.
As I mentioned last week, we have lost some of our team and gained Sarah Taylor and Maria Vanderform.  I have also invited one more designer but do not want to announce her name until I hear back from her.  Stay tuned until next week.

Our top cards from challenge #205 are as follows:

As you can see, there were so many entries - and so many great cards - that this week there was a top five.  Congrats, ladies, for your wonderful cards. And thank you to everyone who participated.  I love it when you make my job hard by having so many entries!!!!

Now for this week's sketch (thanks to Kaylin):
Optional theme: Hugs and Kisses

And here are the examples from our team:

Wow!  Gorgeous cards, ladies!  I am certain that we will have lots of participation when everyone sees these.  You are truly inspiration for us all.  Thanks so much for being on our team.
Remember, everyone, that our challenge runs for two weeks and you can enter below or as a post on our Facebook page.  Happy creating, everyone!

Challenge #304

Well, the holidays are over so it is time to get back to work - or is it play?  However you look at it, crafting is fun and, after a short break, it is time to get going again.

I don't have a photo for you - again- but I have finally picked up my camera so hopefully soon.

Before I show you our top picks from challenge #202, I would like to let you know that there is a design team call.  If you are interested in becoming a member of our team, just email me(cherylsteve.robinson@gmail.com) the link to your blog or Facebook page so I can check out your style and skills.  I will be selecting three  designers and hope to have our new members in place within a week or two.  

Now for the top cards from Challenge #302:

Great cards!  Congrats,ladies.  And thanks to everyone who played with us.

Now, for challenge #304....thanks to Kaylin for the sketch. The optional theme is "Old and New" (use something old and something new on your card).

Here are the cards from our team:

Aren't these samples from our team gorgeous?  Don't they inspire you?  I am sure you are ready to get started and I cannot wait to see your creations.  You can enter below using the linky or on our Facebook page. Remember, you have two weeks to finish your card.  Hope you have some fun!!
