Hard decision I'm going with Scrappernic. Love that new stamp set.

Anonymous said...

I vote for Michelle.

Kathy said...

I think everybody did a great job on the cards. But the one that catches my eye most is Korin's. I love the colors, simplicity and especially the distressing! I hope I can make cards like that when I grow up!! (LOL)

Mary in MN said...

Wow, you're really asking a lot to make us choose just one! They're all terrific, but I'm going to pick Michelle's cute little pocket full of posies.

Kr8inKaren said...

I'm voting for Michelle's Good Life pocket full of flowers - love it!

A Carolina Scrapper said...

Erin, you ought to be ashamed of yourself making us pick just one! I had to look at them all a bazillion times then try to decide on just one ... UGH! Okay ... after thinking about them very hard I have to choose Korin. I love the soft watercolor look that she achieved with her coloring as well as the colors chosen for the card.

I admire everyone for taking on the challenge and give us all some good eye candy :)!

Anonymous said...

But I want a Karat, too!!!! I love the beaded wire and the embossed carrot. I vote for Liz. Cool challenge.

Pam said...

I like them all, but I really like Korin's Jolly Old St. Nick card. I like the color and and distressing....what a great card!

Diana said...

I'm voting for Kathy's. Great job with the let's get together paper.

Kim said...

I like Kathy's, Let's Get Together. Nicely done!

Pammie said...

I think all the cards are GREAT! Each one is unique! I am voting for KORINS What I like about it.... everything! The colors, the simplicity, the old world feeling with a modern twist.... just my kind of card! Good luck to all.... they really are great.

Shannon Niziolek said...

I vote for Korin's card. Ohhh it was hard to choose though, they are all great!!

Korin, I love the sponging (or shading) you did on the card, especially around Santa. I also really liked the little bracket things you put on the corners of Santa and the phrase. A simple little thing, but it sure added something! That is one of those things I need to remember to do once and a while!

Great cards everyone =)

-Shannon

Rachele Funk said...

I personally love Kathy's. . . they are all great however! If I had to vote 2nd it would be Korin's which I know is appealing because the images are "new" and "fresh!"

Wow! They really are all very nice pieces of artwork....
I am in a Blue Sky mode (Allie), though - I love the L/O with the little airplanes in the background and the photos of the sky/clouds incorporated into it.
Nice work everyone.

Allie Gower - Crafternoons said...

Well, I think this was so much fun. I gotta say everyone did a great job.

But, I was gonna be greedy, I wanted the BLOG CANDY, and you said I could vote for my own. But I can't do it.

I really liked the Good Life, by Michelle.

Anonymous said...

The Good Life by Michele..although I liked them all this one really caught me....maybe because I'm into Shabby Chic and a bit rustic myself.

Anonymous said...

Sign me up for the "Karat". What a clever use of a vegetable.

Jared & Shantell Vidoni said...

Jenalee said...

I choose "KARAT" very creative and what a fun way to say congrats! GO LIZ!!

Oh my gosh! Love Liz's card!!! What a really cute Idea with the gold embossing powder, really makes you think about the gold wedding band. Really good idea.

I just LOVE the Rustic Loook of Liz Batty's Card, SOOOO Cool!

Anonymous said...

The striking blue in Allie's work is so breath taking, makes me want to be there, looking up from the grass at the clouds. Good composition.

Becca said...

This is my first time to your site, but I wanted to vote for "Congrats on your Karat". I think it is unique because it isn't your typical engagement congratulations. You look at the carrot and connect the karat - play on words. This makes you think. Any time you have to pause and think about a page or card makes the words much more meaningful. Good job to Liz!

Anonymous said...

I love them all but my vote goes to scrappernic. Well done everyone

Really like the stamp set that sparkle used, my vote is for sparkle.

Mindy said...

Liz gets my vote!

Sparkle said...

Ah...Liz, thanks! Thats very sweet of you and very creative!

Kristin and Rusty said...

Hi Erin! All of the entries are great! I wish that I could vote for more than one. In the end, I vote for Kathy's "delight" card. I love the colors and the fact that it's an "all occasion" card...at least to me. :)

"Karat" is great for me. Thinking back to the engagement days, what memories.

Angela said...

My vote goes to...(insert drum rolling here).... Michelle D. for the pocket full of flowers. So darned cute!

Anonymous said...

I love Sparkles!

Karen said...

I would like to know what the background is on the Karat Card. Is that cork or textured paper? It's very interesting and had lots of texture, plus the beadwork is cocol.

Bryce said...

I walk in the door early from work to surprise her and my wife says I better vote for her card or I'm sleeping in the dog house. What a greeting. So my vote is for the "KARAT"!! Really I would vote for it even if she wasn't my wife, especially since I saw the real thing not just the picture. Duh me, I thought cork was for bulletin boards not scrapbooking, and the wire looks like stuff I use in my shop. Guess I know were to come for gadget stuff when I need it. Ouch elbow to my side, guess that means I better stay out of her scrapbooking junk. Go karat!

Pam said...

I LOVE that Duct tape...but I guess I still have to stick with the most put together finished looking card...which was Korin's Santa card.

Suzi said...

Kathy's card makes me happy. I like the bright colors.

My vote = Kathy
