Top Pick for Anything other than a Card Challenge

Hi Everyone, 
Wow what a bunch of wonderful projects that were posted this week on the blog. Thanks to all who took part in our challenge. We loved visiting your blogs. Here are the top picks by the design team and the winner of the $10.00 Gift Certificate from Fred She Said. Again thanks Tracey for sponsoring our challenge.

I picked Libelle's Memory box, I just love all the fine details she used on the box, including one of the pic's from the trip along with Tilda, the Eiffel Tower and a bunch of other small details, the time and effort put into the project is just amazing. Thanks for showing us your beautiful box.

I pick Deneen's Project. Her candy treat box is too cute and very creative!
 l love everything about it. And whats more special is she shared the pattern for everyone.

My top pick for this week is Dilyana's stove. It brought a smile to my face when I saw it. I reminded me of those toy stoves when I was a kid. It is a very creative piece of art work - especially the cupcake in the oven.

My Fave this week is Dilyana's Adorable Stove! WOW, talk about creative...I love the button heat elements and the paper rolled pot is just adorable!  Even the towel on the handle...such detail! The muffin inside just makes it PERFECT! Thanks for joining us this week!

My pick this week is Dilyana, #28. The mini muffin box is absolutely adorable. I love the button burners and the paper pot. Very well done. Brings back memories of Barbie dolls and playing house. I would love to have one of these in my kitchen on a shelf. Well done, Didi!
 Vicki your work on this lovely cross is beautiful.  I think it is a truely special project and something to be treasured.  Everything is so perfect from the emblishments to your choice of words and music. Love this project - Well Done and thanks for joining us this week. 


My Top Pick for this week's challenge is #10, love the little box that Nat has looked like a card at first but if you went to her blog to actually see what she made it's a box that opens and has a tag tucked into the inside pocket and the other side it for a small gift.  I thought it was a fantastic project and loved the theme of gardening she did! Thanks Nat for sharing your fabulous work!
Hugs Shell♥

Top Picks for Come and Get It Had a Farm (Animal Challenge)

Thanks to all who participated on our latest Farm Animal challenge. We loved visiting all your blogs. 

Here are the Designers Top Picks for challenge.

Hi, Judy here. My choice for top pick this week is Pauline’s Give us a Hug card. I love the image of Little Witzy the baby duck that she chose for her card and how she used her pattern papers on the front and inside of her card. Very nice CAS card.

Top Pick for this week's challenge is # 7 Pauline  I just love Suzy Zoo critters and the coloring is fabulous, wonderful layout!  Did you see that she even finished the inside with the same wonderful designer papers.
Thanks Pauline for sharing your Beautifully done card  with us this week!
Hugs Shell ♥

Liz, I have picked your card this week because I think your card is fabulous and perfect for our Farm Animal Challenge.  The step card is a great way to show off all the wonderful farm animals and there is always the need for a tractor.  Love the colours and everything about your card.
A great project - thanks for sharing with us!
 Regards Meighan

This week my choice is also Liz. I LOVE the step card, and all the farm animals are just TOO CUTE! The farmer in the tractor just makes it all the more that a word?  LOL Thank you for joining us this week, Liz and I hope Finlay had a VERY Happy Birthday!

 I have  picked  Liz at Crafty Liz's Creations this week. Her card is overall amazing, and the cute animals fit the challenge perfectly!

I love #9,by Sarah T. The colors are so beautiful, and the ribbon and tag...I love it all! Great work Sarah,



My choice this week is Jen's adorable Noah's Ark card, yes it has more than farm animals, but how cute are those pigs and goats. I love the colors and how she used the swirls embossing folder as the waves of water, a great composition. Thanks for playing along Jen.

This week we would LOVE to see your cards made with Farm Animals...e i e i o!
My original idea was to use COWS, but I was gently (ehem) reminded that not everyone loves cows as much as I do, so we went with ANY Farm Animal - Pig, Horse, Cow, Chicken, get it!

Top Pick for Tic Tac Toe

First of all I want to thank each and everyone that played along this past week for the challenge using our Tic Tac Toe Theme.  So many fabulous entries

My Top Pick Choice for this week is #29 Viv, I just love the soft colors and all the details of pearls, Lace.....oh the lace is just gorgeous with the simple little die-cut butterfly!  Fantabulous Vintage card Viv! Thanks for sharing your Card with us!

My top pick for this week is a "Fairy Tale Wedding" by Angie. Angie created this card for a special friend’s wedding and you can see that she put all of her heart into making the card. It is full of interesting and beautiful details including a beautiful box for the card to be presented in.

It is a beautiful card. love the bride image and how elegant the card looks over all.


She used lots of neat techniques, like embossing the coffee cup sleeve, and making her own background paper with resizing the digi. Nice work.
With virtual hugs,
I chose Julie's card for a few reasons, first of all the coloring is just fantastic. I also love the color red, so that is a good reason by itself,  but the lovely the lacey look to the card is just as pretty as the color, and then the simplicity of the design and layout are just perfect to show off the wonderful image. Thanks for playing along with our challenge.

My top pick for the week is #80 by Crissy.  I love so much about this princess carriage.  The soft colours, every detail from bling to flowers, curtains to ribbons.  A great project for our Tic Tac Toe challenge. Thanks for sharing with us Crissy - wonderful work!
Regards Meighan


My choice for Favorite this week is Denimo. I just ADORE this card...her coloring I totally envy, it is gorgeous, and the entire layout is just stunning. Her choice of DP's are perfect for the theme, and I LOVE the charm! I also chose this because someone very dear to me is celebrating 5 years cancer free, and it touched my heart! ( You know who you are, and I Love You!)
Thanks so much for playing along and sharing this gorgeous card with us!
