  1. Great sketch! My card is destined for my pile of cards for my family :)

  2. Beautiful inspiration cards, ladies!! My card is going to a family in town that have been our friends for 39 + years and we often share our Thanksgiving dinner with them. Happy Thanksgiving! Hugs, Darnell

  3. I am sending my card to a friend who is going through a rough patch in life; wanted her to know that I'm thinking of her......

  4. My card is going to my oldest son who is living on his own for the first time and is feeling a little lonely. It will have a gift card tucked in (he says he can't afford Starbucks and pizza) - which will definitely make him smile!

  5. Thank you for the great inspiration! I so enjoyed the challenge & DT inspiration. I'm giving my card to my neighbor, who recently gifted me some chocolate mint from her garden! Best, CG

  6. I didn't even know that TE HAD a challenge!! Gorgeous inspiration from the DT. I will definitely be back! My card is destined to go into the Christmas card stash for next month.

  7. My card is for good friends who gave us an early Christmas gift of a wood rack to put by our fireplace. We had a very small one, and now that it's getting cold and we're using our fireplace to heat our house, they knew a much bigger one would be a lot more practical.

  8. I have an elderly neighbor who lost her husband in the spring. I like to send her little cards to remind her that life is good. I will send this card to her.

  9. Thanks so much for letting me play! Can't wait to spend the $20 in your amazing store!

  10. This was a very pretty photo inspiration and it was easy to use my flower stamp to create a fast card to send to friends who made a donation to my Grandfathers memorial.

  11. My card is going to my daughter in Florida who is ready for Christmas!! :) ~ Tricia T

  12. Jennifer, thank you for mention it. I forgot to comment (spoiler alert) that I am sending this card with my children this Friday for his teacher. Just before the fall break.

  13. I am sending this to my sister. We have been estranged for some years and I want her to know that I am still grateful that she is a part of my life, though distant right now.

  14. Just about forgot to post who my card is going to. My brother-in-law will be the recipient for his birthday. Thank you TE and Jen for the challenge and the great sketch and inspiration.
