  1. Congrats to all the winners! Thanks for choosing my card for the top 3 and for starting my day off with a smile!

  2. Thanks for the top three spot !! Congrats to the other winners.

  3. WOOHOO! Thank you for choosing my card! :-) Congrats to the other ladies!

  4. Confused because I see a couple square or rectangle cards and even see red & green. I thought the card base had to be shaped not square and not rectangle and no red or green could be used.

    1. Hi, Melissa,

      Yes, that happens sometimes. Although I try to make it very obvious what the requirements are for each challenge, some entrants don't read carefully and link projects that don't meet those requirements.

      Right under the last Design Team member's project (Sarah's this time) there is a sentence that says, " will choose the prize winner from ALL ELIGIBLE entries.
      The Design Team will be picking their favorites for the "Top Cut" from ALL ELIGIBLE entries and those winners will receive a button to proudly display on their blog.'

      I keep a list of those entries that are ineligible to win and ineligible to be in the top three. They are not in the running for the prize or the top three.

      Thank you for your sharp eye, Melissa!

  5. Very nice DT work. Thank you for the challenge.

  6. Thank you for another challenge and for the DT creations -have a blessed week!

  7. Awesome DT creations! Thank you for a super fun challenge! Have a great weekend!
