  1. I had to play along right away this week since I missed last week! :) This week is a birthday card for a friend.

  2. I saw these colors and knew I had to play. I made this card for one of my aunts--my mom's youngest sister. She is the last of her siblings still around. One of my mom's favorite flowering trees was the Dogwood tree. I sent my aunt this card in a care package for her 75th birthday.

  3. I make birthday cards and Christmas cards for my entire team at work. It keeps me focused on them personally throughout the year.

  4. This will go to someone at church who needs a bit of a lift. My hubby and I head the visitation team, and I send quite a few cards.

  5. Hello Taylored Expressions, my card will go to a little boy for his birthday!

  6. I plan on sending this card to my son to celebrate the end of the below zero days.

  7. Hi #9 is going to my friend Jenny for her birthday. Hugz

  8. Hi. Vick Davis here. I'm sending my cute beach penguin to a friend who needs some encouragement. I think it should make her smile. Love these challenges!
