  1. Oooo - I'm so excited to go shopping! Thank you, TE! My card for this week is going to the daughter of an online friend who is in the hospital. : ) ~ Tricia

  2. Congrats to Tricia. Ooh, I inspired by that glass of candy. Looks yummy. Lovely inspiration from the DT. Hugz

  3. Finally got a card made for one of your challenges--yah! I'm mailing my card to a blogging friend who made cinnamon rolls for our recent meeting.

  4. LOVING this challenge, ladies! Great inspiration cards! My pumpkin card is for my sister-in-law's birthday later this month... I'm happily working ahead right now, getting cards made! :)

  5. I made 2 cards to give away. I hope it
    the pumpkins in the picture inspiration count as a motif since my 2 cards have pumpkins in them rather than candy. My Thanksgiving card is going to be for my co-leader in Bible Study Fellowship. She serves the Lord in so many wonderful ways, and I like to write some words of encouragement and appreciation at holiday times especially. Then the card with the girl pulling the wagon of pumpkins is going to be for a cousin of mine having a difficult time right now. It's just a sweet card that matches the season. I plan to let her know she's in my prayers.
