A Big Shout Out For Tomorrow's Challenge
We Have Another Entry

It's Our Out Of The Box Challenge

and the Design Team has their creations all ready for you to see:

In addition, we already have 3 customers who have entered their cards below:

The first two cards are from Mandy Chou.  She is using Butterfly Scene, which is an "Out of the Box" stamp all by itself, don't you think?  The first is just so bright, colorful, and cheerful too!  Beautiful cards, Mandy, and thank you for playing.  Good luck in the drawing too!

And her second card is just as beautiful with the same stamp, but very soft and lovely too!

3 Mandy Chou

Following Mandy is Bernadette Tolley.  She created 3 cards for the challenge.  Her first card also uses a House.  She also used Leafy Branch as a border, and Welcome To The Neighborhood.  The Flower Soft is a wonderful touch and her picket fence assists with the card as a stand alone.  Very pretty, Bernadette.


Her second card is done with Leafy Branch used as background .  Tea Leaf Topiary is the main image.


And for her third card she used the Leafy Branch as Holly.  The snow globe was created using the Under Glass stamp.  Stickers were used for the word and images under the glass.  Very creative and lovely cards, Bernadette.  Thank you for playing and good luck in the drawing too!


Our third card is from Miranda Degenaars at 'Mir'acle Art Color & Design.  She created her card using Damask Flower, which come also as a Clear Set.  How gorgeous, Miranda, and thank you for playing.  Good luck in our drawing too.
