And now our Headliner:

Krystal Roberts
Red Hot Stampers


Tropical Oasis Memories & More

I loved the tropical feel of Krystal's card; the focal image brought a Hawaiian flair to her card and the coordinating papers were great for the background!  But her sentiment treatment was so clever, I kept coming back to it, it was amazing!  Congratulations, Krystal, for being my Headliner this week!

Once again, thank you to everyone for playing along with us.  Congratulations to all our winners! Please be sure to pick up your badges here. We hope you will display them proudly.  Come back tomorrow for a bonus Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge from Jaydee!

 Cathy Roffey

Cathy's entry was a standout in the gallery this week. The bamboo image and green panel  lent an air of serenity and calmness to her card.  The butterfly, colored to perfection, was a wonderful accent, drawing the eye right to the sentiment. Congratulations, Cathy, on being my Headliner this week!

And now our Headliner:


          
Nancy Leppek

The moment I saw Nancy's plaid background, I knew she was my choice this week!  The colors combined in this plaid is a showstopper.  Her embossed panel adds so much dimension and those flowers (even if they gave you a fit, Nancy) are gorgeous!  The sentiment definitely reflects the times!   Congratulations Nancy, YOU are my HEADLINER this week! 

Once again, thank you to everyone for playing along with us.  Congratulations to all our winners! Please be sure to pick up your badges here. We hope you will display them proudly.  Come back tomorrow for a fun Clean-and-Simple Challenge from Ann!
