  1. Congrats to Chrissy. Fun challenge. Oooh, blue cake. Perfect. Hugz

  2. Beautiful DT work and I love that your challenges are open for interpretation. I love all my TE products!

  3. I think you have a typo in the submission deadline. Sept 9th was yesterday.

    Congrats to Chrissy!

  4. I'm tickled pink that my friend Chrissy won your very first challenge! So fun!!! For this second challenge, I just used the sketch for my card. I think I will mail this to my friend Lydia (Understand Blue) as she loves to cook and her favorite color is blue.

  5. My husband's birthday is today and this is the card I made for him.

  6. My card is being given to a friend this Sunday morning. It is her birthday today but it is also a big church celebration for us - so I went ultra-celebratory on her card with lots of sequin confetti!

  7. Thank you for another wonderful challenge! Your DT samples are so pretty! I made this card (entry #9) for my sister-in-law's birthday. She is a shoe fanatic and also loves cats so I know she'll love this card! I'm mailing it out to her right away so she'll get it in time for her birthday! Thanks for the inspiration!

  8. I am loving this challenge blog and the projects made my everyone. My card is #14 and I plan on sending it to a special young woman in my life who needs some positive encouragement. There is so much hatred and hurt in this world. It feels good to be able to pass along some "sparkle" to everyone we know and meet. Thanks!

  9. Thanks for another fun challenge! I sent my card to a friend so I could send her some family pictures!

  10. My card is going to a friend who just started a new job! ~ Tricia

  11. I made this card for Sapphire B, a pal at Post Pals, a charity set up to send cards, etc. to seriously ill children and their siblings in the UK.

  12. What's not to love about blue cake with sprinkles? Inspiration plus!! My card is going to my mother, who is the dearest most wonderful mother ever (as they all are) and I love her completely.

  13. My card is going to my Uncle who will be celebrating his 93rd birthday this week! Thanks for the awesome challenge. I love it!

  14. I made birthday card for little girl , because she is crazy about traveling :)
