Winners for Challenge #142 and a Good-bye Already

Wow! How exciting to see so many of you playing along again! Thank you so much for spreading the word that we are back in action! We loved the level of creativity that this sketch brought out in all of you!

Before we get to our winners this week, we have a sad good-bye to make. Our Design Team member, Amy Ottmers, has had to step down, at least for awhile, and we are certainly sad to see her go, especially so soon after we just got going again, but we wish her all the best and we hope we will be able to enjoy her whimsical designs on our blog again someday soon.

It's getting really hard to choose just two winners! 

But our Top Pick this week is: Jen Mitchell

We liked the soft simplicity of Jen's sweet plaid Valentine card with the complimenting designs on the hearts!

And our Featured Artist is: Joanne James

This elegant, but romantic anniversary card was a hit with the all the design team! We loved the combination of neutrals with the delicate doilies and the shiny satin ribbon. 

Congratulations to both Joanne and Jen! And thanks to everyone who participated!

Be sure to check back here tomorrow for a brand new challenge! We hope you will play along with us!
