Winner!! Valentine Hearts

Hello, it is Caroline here with the winner of the Valentine Hearts Challenge.  I know that I say this every time, but it is extremely hard to pick a winner.  The entries were phenomenal, I loved them all.  I am sure that the receivers of these beautiful valentines really enjoyed them and the memories of the layouts that were created will be enjoyed also.

I have chosen Glenda's entry... the box card.  How fun is this!!  I love all the fun cuts that you chose for this amazing box card.
Glenda, you can email me at to get your blinky.

I want to thank everyone for participating.  I had such fun looking at all the beautiful cards and layouts.  Nice job, everyone!!!

Hello my crafty friends, I hope your week is going well. I just realized that I never posted a winner from the ice cream challenge the other week. So sorry about that, my mind isn't always with me anymore since the loss of my husband. But I'm here now to correct that over sight! And the winner is.......Star! I love her cute ice cream cone with that sweet little face on it. Star contact me using my email ( bsl60 at embarqmail dot com ) and I will send you your winner's badge!! Thank you to Glenda and Viv for playing along too, they both had fabulous ice cream projects as well. Crafty hugs, Brenda
