Challenge #346

Good Morning Everyone!

It seems that it is great that as I (Kaylin) take over running the blog that it is only fair that I am posting one of my own sketches. I do want to say thank you to CherylAnn for all she has done. Being part of this team has made me grow as a card maker and if she hadnt chosen me for her challenge blog who knows if I would still be making so many cards.


Our Sketch For This Week (By Me)
Optional Theme: Create a Scene


What great and interesting takes on my sketches. As you all can see there are lots of fun ways to use this sketch and feel free to mix it up a bit. Remember that the added theme is to create a scene.

October Top Cards

Good morning and Happy Halloween!

The first order of business today is to randomly select our Halloween card winner.  The spooky choice is Suzanne Reynolds.  Congrats!  Please email me at so I can get your information and send you your prize.

Now for the top 5 cards for the month:

Great cards, ladies!  Thanks to all who entered this month.

Now for my last piece of business...
I have decided to give up the reins of this blog.  Kaylin will be taking over (starting tomorrow).  She will post the challenge for this week.  It will be a day late but November 1st will be a brand new start for the site.  The number of followers is up but the number of cards we get each week is down and maybe Kaylin will have the golden touch to get things booming again.
I have run this site for seven years and love it like a child.  There have been many designers (some have come and gone and come again), and I made some great friendships.  I will miss the site - but I will be checking in from time to time.
Kaylin will be a great administrator for the site as she is young, enthusiastic and extremely talented.  I wish her all the best and hope everyone will support her and the design team to keep this going for a long, long time.
So, for now, good bye and happy creating!
Thank you, everyone.

Top Cards...........

Hi, all!

This is where I would regularly post the top cards from two weeks ago.  But the numbers have been a little light lately so there will not be a top three this week.  It is too difficult to choose three out of four cards and leave one out in the cold.  So.............
Next week, we will choose our TOP 5 for the entire month as well as drawing for our Halloween card winner.  Hope you don't mind.  
Sorry but I think this is a fairer way to do it.
Thanks and have a great week!

Congratulations, cardmakers, and thank you to all who participated in this challenge.  We hope to see you again!
