August Card Making Challenge

For our monthly card making challenge at my Yahoo Group we will be making Anniversary cards. August is a common wedding month in America because so many people have time off from work during that month. This includes Carla and me! We will be celebrating our 37th wedding anniversary on August 21. You must follow the sketch above to make your card. There are no other restrictions or requirements. Three winners will be chosen at the end of the month and swell prizes will be awarded. Have fun and good luck!

June/July Card challenge winners

Here are the chosen entries in our explosion card challenge. At the top is Heidi Wegman's  summer get-away spot in a box! So clever and whimsical and as always impeccable made!

In the middle is a card close to my heart. Juliet Arrighi has recreated my "Just a Little Hello" card which I did on The Carol Duvall Show some years ago. The 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card opens to reveal an 8 1/2" x 11" message. Beautifully done Juliet!

Finally, Janet Castle has made a lovely card using my new stamp called "Hannah's Busy Bee" named for my little Grand daughter. Exquisite coloring Jan!

Each of you will receive my new Cloisonne Seahorse stamp set (not yet released) as soon as I have them to send out.

Thank to all who submitted a card for this challenge, every one was wonderful.  It was hard to pick just three!
