Challenge #337

Good morning!  Before we get started, our team would like to send our best wishes to those of you who are affected by Hurricane Harvey.  We hope everyone is well and that all of your friends and family are out of harm's way.  Our thoughts are with you all - especially wish Libby (from our team).

Now it is time to welcome a new member to our team - Chris Schroeder.  Chris has been a follower and participant for some time and always comes up with great designs.  Glad to have her on board!
Check out her Facebook page and leave her some love.

It is now time for our challenge.  Sketch #337 is another thanks to Dawn.
Optional theme: It's a celebration!

And here are the samples from our talented team:

Great cards!  And very inspirational.
Now it is up to our viewers to see what they can come up with.  I am excited to see what everyone creates. Happy card making, all.
And have a safe and happy week!

And here are our picks (in no particular order):

Congrats to the top three!  And thank you to everyone who took part.  We really appreciate it.
Have a great week, everyone!

Challenge #335

Good morning! 
Before I get to this week's sketch, I would like to let everyone know there is a spot available on the design team.  Shell finds it necessary to leave the team due to work commitments.  I will miss her so much.  This leaves a space for one new designer on our team, so, if you want to apply, either email me or message me on Facebook.  I hope to fill the spot by September 1st.

Now for the challenge.  The sketch is another great one from Dawn.  Here it is:
The optional technique: embossing

And here are the cards from the talented ladies on our team:

Wow!  Amazing cards, team!  I know they will inspire our followers.  And I cannot wait to see what everyone comes up with.  Remember, you have two weeks to play along and you can enter below or on our Facebook page.
Have a wonderful week!

Challenge #332 Top Three

Good morning!  We had some really beautiful cards for this challenge and it made it extremely difficult to choose our top three.  But, in the end, here are our choices:

Great cards, ladies!  As were all of the entries.  Thanks so much for playing along with us.

I would like to take a minute to remind everyone that your entries must be in jpeg form.  There was a beautiful card that I was not able to use as I could not convert it to a jpeg. Sorry about that.

I hope you have a good remainder to your week and get a chance to do some crafting along the way. Thanks for stopping by.

Challenge #334

Hi everyone!  This week, we have another awesome sketch from Dawn . I am so indebted to the ladies from the team who completely took over when I could not get things done.  They will never know how appreciative I am.
Here is Dawn's sketch:
And the optional theme (thanks to Kaylin) is: A Masculine card

Here are the cards from the team to inspire everyone and to give you some ideas:

Great cards!  I LOVE all of the textures each of our designers used this week.  And these cards give our viewers some great ideas of their own, I am sure.
Remember, as always, you have two weeks to play along and you can post your cards below or on our Facebook page.
I hope you have lots of fun with this one.....and thanks again to everyone who visits us each week!
