Winners: Inspiration Photo - Queen of the Green, Top Mow It Alls, Honorable Gnomes

Hello, hello, hello! Happy Friday, everybody! Are you ready for the weekend? I know I sure am! And I can't think of a better way to kick things off than to announce our winners and hand out a prize.

Two quick things before I jump right in: first of all, we just wanted to send out a little reminder to all our participants to please check the rules that are posted along with every single challenge post. We want to keep this fair to everyone, so if you do not follow the rules, you will not be elegible to win. Simple as that.

Secondly, this is the last push for the Heroes Card Drive. If you haven't sent your cards in to Laurel, you still have a couple days to do so. Get those in if you can, please! Every card counts. For those who have already sent, we thank you so much! Laurel said she's been flooded with packages of cards. What a wonderful blessing! So many of our troops and their families will be touched by your generosity.

And speaking of generosity, we would like to thank the wonderful, whimsical Lawn Fawn for sponsoring our last challenge and donating an in-stock stamp set of the winner's choice.

Let's find out who that is, shall we?

Our Inspiration Photo Queen of the Green is:

Her trapeze-flying birdies completely stole our hearts
and captured the fun, carnival feel of the challenge.

In no particular order, our Top Mow It Alls:

And in no particular order, our Honorable Gnomes:

Huge congrats to our winners and a huge thank you to all of our challenge participants!
You all make this so much fun for us.

Please help us support our troops and get those cards in to Laurel!

Have a great weekend everybody!
Tune in Monday for a brand-new challenge.


  1. Happy to be honorable gnome! :> Will keep trying to win! Congrats ladies love all your cards!

  2. ZOMG!!! I was just hoping to get an Honorable Gnome badge to paste into my blog. I know submitters work REALLY hard on their cards with a lot of fancy coloring and layers and techniques and I want them to keep working like that. I look at everything they do! Mine was so plain but I liked what I made and it made me happy. These stamps so rule and so does this blog! A fine honor!

  3. Congrats to Aimee, your card is adorable and to all the other winners as well!!!
    Thank you for choosing my card, it's my first honorable mention, I'm thrilled!!!

  4. Yay! This is my first honorable gnome, too, and I am super excited! I've been trying so hard to just win a badge for my blog, so I am absolutely tickled this morning! I can see my cards improving with every entry. Congrats to the other winners for making gorgeous cards! I love that Aimee's card is in spirit with the Olympics!

    1. Hah, Lisa. There was one submission by Samantha M. in which a LF squirrel was jumping tree to tree. It looked to me like he was trying for the High Jump gold. Cheers!
