Charm Challenge Winner!

Hello everyone, Brenda here to announce the winner of the Charm challenge. Gosh, only three people entered the challenge, but wow, what great projects they were using charms!!! I didn't think I would have a hard time picking a winner from three projects, but I did! I love all three of the projects you submitted and wish I could give you all the winner button for your blogs. So it ended up being an a close my eyes and pick type of deal! lol In the end I went with Glenda from Glenda's card because I loved how she made a shaped heart from memory twine to hang her charm off of. 

Congrats Glenda, email me at bsl60 at embarqmail dot com and I will get your winner's blinkie right out to you! Crafty hugs, Brenda

Sympathy Card Winner

Sharon here from Mee Mee's Creations to announce the winner of the 'POW' winner from my 'Sympathy Card' challenge. It was very hard to pick just one, because I so loved every card, but I just kept going back to Vickie of Heartfelt Stamper's card. So I just had to pick her card as the POW winner. Vickie just sent me an email to sharonswafford1 at gmail dot com and I will send you the code for your POW badge to put on your blog.

Hello friends, Susan here to bring you this week’s Cricut challenge.  Many of our regular readers know that I have a new granddaughter for whom I am over the moon!  And being a new (dare I say first time) grandmother, my world is currently revolving around our darling baby girl.  So given that I mentally emerged in all things baby, our challenge this week is, of course, a NEW BABY CHALLENGE!
