  1. Fun challenge! I used the die cut,
    orange, and sequins in my shaker
    card. I am sending them to my
    family for Halloween! Always
    make holiday cards for my
    Carla from Utah

  2. Love both the parts of this challenge. I am going to give my card to a friend who needs a confidence boost.

  3. My card is going to my co-leader in Bible Study Fellowship who is such an inspiration to me. She serves the Lord in so many different ways.

    1. I should have said my first card is going to my co-leader (the hedgehog one for Thanksgiving). My second card with the fun jack-o-lantern birdbrain is for a friend just returning home after a hospital stay in another state. She'll like the bright colors and fun sentiment.

  4. My 3rd card is for the mother of a dear friend. She's been having some heart problems and was in the hospital for a couple days last week. I thought I'd send her a get well soon card and let her know I am praying for her.

  5. My card us going to a local Veteran on Veteran's Day.

  6. Hi, sending my card to a friend to let her know I am thinking of her. Hopefully the bright colours and fun image will cheer her up. Hugz

  7. I sent my card to my sister to say hi! Thanks for the challenge!

  8. I almost forgot to say who I'm sending my card to! It's going to the MD Anderson Cancer Center this time!
