Challenge #157 - I Dream Of Spring

Good morning to everyone!  We are having yet another cold snap here - thank goodness that I am boarding a plane for the hot Caribbean sun.  I will be in Roatan for the next 10 days -woohoo!  I will have internet access (I hope) so there should be no problems with next week's challenge.

Now on to this week..............
Here is our sketch and the twist (should you want) is I Dream of Spring.
And here are the beautiful cards from our designers:

Now it is your turn.  I cannot wait to see your cards.  Happy crafting and thanks for stopping by!

Hi, happy birthday to us.  Try Stampin' is 3 years old this week.  I never expected that we would last this long when I first started but I am happy we have.  I thank all of the talented designers and all of you great followers for sticking by this site and helping it grow and improve.  We will hold a big birthday/welcome spring bash the week of March 18th so stay tuned for details.

Now for our sketch:

Unfinished Business

Good morning to everyone!  I hope you are all enjoying the Olympics.  I have some unfinished business to attend to this morning.
First, LISA BULLOCK sent me this card based on our sketch #153.  She was late getting it done but it is a beautiful card and well worth showing you.
Thanks to Lisa for sharing!

Next, it appears that I forgot to post the top 3 for sketch #153.  Here they are:


And a special shout out for this card as well:


Sorry for taking so long to post them.  Great cards, ladies.  Thanks so much for playing with us!

Challenge #154 had only 3 entries so there is no top 3 for that sketch.
See you later.

Challenge #155 - Hearts and Flowers

Hey, everyone!
It is Olympic time.  Are you as excited as I am?  I absolutely love the Olympics and- since there is a nine hour time difference - I am pretty sleep deprived.  How about you?

Well, enough about me.  Let's get down to our sketch.  The twist this week is Hearts and Flowers.  Since Valentines is this weekend, it just seems like the perfect fit. Here is the sketch:

 Here are the cards from our team:

Awesome, ladies!  I know you have inspired me to make a couple of Valentines for this weekend.  
Now I want to see what our followers come up with for this week.  Please post your entries below.
Happy Valentines day everyone!

Good morning and happy February to you!
It is still really cold here but the snow has let up -until tomorrow at least.  We have the biggest snowbanks I have seen in several years. Still great crafting weather.
