Challenge #25~Valentine's and Winner(s)

Good morning everyone! Wow...we had 153 entries for this past challenge. That was a LOT of entries for me to look through and once I added in all of you that got added into the drawing two times it turned out to be a total of 166.

Thank you to all of you that continue to join us each time and I love to see new people joining us as well. Please note the rules on the sidebar! There are just a few of them but if you do not follow them...I do not include you in the please only enter (2) challenge entries per challenge!!

So....I figured since we had such a huge showing this time around I would do a Top 5 AND..................wait for it.........wait for it.........

So let's get started because this is going to take me forever today!!!



Congrats to both of you! Please send me an email with your choice of (3) images from the store that you would like!


Wow right!!! Let's just say even picking 5 instead of just 3 was just as hard!!!

~Meaning pinks, hearts, love.....bring on the passion everyone! I don't want to just see it but I want to feel the passion through your projects

The DT worked very hard on showing us some Valentine's inspiration...let's get started!!!

used Umbrella~Whimsy which I never would have thought of to use for a Valentine's card and it's perfect! This is why I love these girls and why we do inspiration with our challenges because you always get those "ah-ha" moments.

used Art Doll and here is what she said about her card (I am just copying and pasting because I don't understand "art"
"I've made a card in art journalstyle
used neocolor crayons and paperartsy stamps for the BG and black and white posca pens" Whatever it is that she just said....her work is beautiful as always!!! :-)

Debbie: (who has just joined our DT...woohooo)
she used Audrey's Heart and asked if this was okay for her first project...ummm...really????'s more then okay it's beautiful and it's got a drawer...I mean talk about going above and beyond!!! Welcome Debbie!!
AND...BTW...if you subscribe to our newsletter you would have gotten this wonderful image in the issue ;-)

used First Dance and used some very cute tickets down the side. I really like these and some pretty pink lace (see...there's a little passion coming out!!)

used one of my favorite girls...Princess Jennifer Latte Heartbreaker! The card has some passion and some sass behind it!! Love all the different shades of pink!

used AJ with heart banner which I love and in case you haven't noticed...banners are EVERYWHERE lately. And I'm thinking someone is in love with all these hearts ;-) Fab coloring and I love that big heart in the corner!

used Trenton and made this all too wonderful gate fold card for us. Can you find all the embellishments she used? It's one of those cards that you have to keep coming back to and looking at because you get to find one more thing that you missed the first time!! Lot's of beautiful DP and ribbon...too cute!

used Trenton and made this wonderful's glittery, it's cute! Love the bakers twine at the bottom....that's another popular item lately!

I loved the DT creations! I giggled at the explanation of the pasting of the description one of the samples because you couldn't understand the artistic lingo.
Thanks for the challenge.
