Challenge #330 Top 4

Hi again.  Wow, we had a TON of entries for challenge #330 so we picked a top 4 instead of 3.  I love it when we have this many people playing along.  Here they are (in no particular order):

Congratulations, ladies!  And a warm thank you to everyone who played along.
Happy creating!

Challenge #332

Good morning all.  First I must apologize to everyone.  I was not able to post the challenge last week (for medical reasons, completely unexpected).  
I owe Donna from the team a debt of gratitude.  In my absence, she kept the Facebook page and the designer site running and I thank her for it.  Had I known what would occur, I would have arranged for someone to post here as well.  She will never know how much I appreciate everything she did.

Now on to Challenge #332.  Not surprisingly, the sketch is from Donna.  Again, thank you.
(Isn't it cute?)
The optional theme is Seaside/Ocean
And here are the inspirations from the team:

Beautiful cards, ladies!  Once again, thanks so much for keeping things going.  I know we will get lots of entries for this really great challenge.  As always, the sketch runs for two weeks and you can enter below or on our Facebook page.
Happy creating....and the best to everyone!

Challenge #330

Good morning to everyone!   Summer is in full swing here and the weather is beautiful.  I hope you are enjoying pleasant conditions wherever you are.  This week, we have a beautiful sketch thanks to Donna.  Here it is:
This week we are a little light on examples from the team.  Some times life just gets in the way.  Here are the cards from the team:

Beautiful cards, ladies.  What is missing in quantity has been surpassed by quality.  I know you will inspire our viewers to create some gorgeous cards of their own.  I hope everyone can find a little crafting time this week.

Remember everyone, you have two weeks to get your cards done and I cannot wait to see what everyone creates.
Have a wonderful week!

Challenge #329

Good morning to all and happy Fourth of July to all of our American friends!  I hope it is a gorgeous day wherever you are.
This week, our sketch is courtesy of Donna.  I love this sketch (reminds me of a men's tuxedo).
The optional theme is "Dainty and Neat".

And here are the great cards from our team:

Wow!  Great cards, team.....and very inspirational.  I know our followers will want to grab their supplies, sit outside in the beautiful summer weather (if you live in the northern hemisphere) or snuggle up (if you are in the southern half of the world) and create something amazing.  And I for one cannot wait to see what everyone comes up with.
As always, you have two weeks to play along and you can enter below or on our Facebook page.
Happy creating and enjoy your week!
