Our Favorite Poem, Quote, and/or Saying Challenge

So head on over to IO DT blogs below to see what wonderful and creative cards they have created for you. Their blogs are listed below:

In addition we have our first customer entries in the challenge.

Our first entry is from Lynda Pleckan at Paper Arts Cafe.  She chose the clear stamp set Fall Squares set to create her masterpiece.  What a really beautiful fall card, Lynda.  Thank you for playing and good luck in our drawing too!!

Lynda Pleckan - Favorite Verse

Pamela designed the next fun and pretty card to share with us.  She used Shoe Queen, Leopard Heel Backs, and Victorian Boot.  Next to diamonds, I think it's shoes that just may be a girl's best friend!!

Pamela - Quotes and Sayings Challenge

Next we have this beautiful card by Bernadette Tolley.  She created this wonderful fall card using Cover-A-CardTM Large Paisley, and the quote, Watch The Leaves.  Isn't that just lovely with those leaves and that bow!  If you look carefully or click on the card, you may see the Paisley embossing and it looks like a white patent leather pattern.

Bernadette Tolley - Quotes and Sayings Challenge

Just look at this card designed by Deloris Thiede, Stamping At The Lake.  She used the single stamp and quote Autumn to create her masterpiece.  Wow, you can just feel the breeze and leaves too!

Deloris Thiede - Quotes and Sayings Challenge

Our last pretty card for this post is by Tracey Kuzniak at My World of Cards, Scrapbooking, and Triathlons. She used Cover-A-CardTM Large Paisley and Small Paisley. The quote is computer generated.  A very lovely card, Tracey.  I love that lace and the vintage way it ties the whole card together.

Tracey Kuzniak - Favorite Quote

The first is from Charlene Driggs at Paper And Ink Playground.  She used feminine and girlie shoe Peep Toe Pump and her saying Pretty Shoes to create the beautiful and fun cards below.  The first is in deep aqua:

Our next entry is from Cindy Messer, who is wisely starting her Christmas preparations.  She designed her card using one of the stamps from clear stamp set Holidays.  A really lovely background and the verse is wonderful too!  Cindy, thank you for sharing with us and good luck in our drawing too!

Our Coffee, Pumpkin, And Nutmeg Color Challenge!

Those colors make me think of dessert after Thanksgiving dinner.  :-) First stop by the IO DT blogs below to see what gorgeous cards they have created for you.  Their blogs are linked below:

The first is from Denise Sanchez at Paper Gems Studio.  She used cute Trick or Treat Birdhouse.  A really cute card with the pretty flowers and the frame for the words is just perfect.

Denise Sanchez - Color Challenge

Our next card was sent by Bernadette Tolley.  She chose to use Dragon Flower and Elegant Dragonfly.  She layered the Dragon Flower and the dragonfly too.  And with those leaves, how pretty!!

Bernadette Tolley - Color Challenge

The next one is from Karen McAlpine at Dreaming and Creating.  She used Thistle Garden.  How warm and lovely and the layered bird is just the right touch too!

Karen McAlpine - Color Challenge

The card below was created by Karen Daley at The Daley Stamper.  She used Peeking Pumpkin for her image and for the background chose Cover-A-CardTM Fluff.  I think that lavender color with the challenge colors is just wonderful!  The sentiment is a rub-on.

Karen Daley - Color Challenge

Deloris Thiede, Stamping At The Lake designed this next beautiful card.  She started with Leaf Wreath as her main image, followed by Oak Branch for her background on the orange and then Thank You for her sentiment.  She has done stitching around the edge of the orange too.  A really bright and cheerful card!

Deloris Thiede - Color Challenge

This card was sent by Tracey Kuzniak at My World of Cards, Scrapbooking, and Triathlons.

She loves the Cover-A-CardTM stamps and has used several on her card.  She has used Medallion, Sm. Paisley, and Swirls & Stars.  Her sentiment is a rub-on and she states the paper was all white in the beginning.  Way to go Tracey.

Tracey Kunzniak - Color Challenge

These two are from Cindy Messer.  She used clear set Halloween Party.  You can purchase the stamps as red rubber separately as Halloween Margarita, Trick or Treat, and

 Hallotini.  Bright and cheerful cards, Cindy.  They really say, "let's party!"  Thank you for participating.

Cindy Messer - Color Challenge 2

Our next entry is from Katie Bondroff.  She chose to use Flower Pot Stack for her main image and Cover-A-CardTM Botanical Wave.   A really beautiful, warm, and lovely card, Katie.  Thank you for sharing with us.

Katie Bondoff - Color Challenge

Gini Cagle at My Crafty And Creative Pursuits, designed her card using House With Gate to set a beautiful Fall scene.  The flower attached with the bow tie really is the perfect embellishment too! Thank you for playing, Gini and good luck in our drawing.
