It was a lot of fun seeing ideas from our members this week for IB186 & IB186C. Everyone is so talented and it is so fun to see where the inspiration will take you! It is also fun to see the Christmas inspiration being shared, it will make sending and delivering paper hugs a lot easier at Christmas time (a very busy time of year for all of us)! 

The winner, chosen by a DT member, of the Back to School challenge is this gorgeous card from Joanne who was inspired this week by IB186C Cool Holiday.  Her embossed foliage is so beautiful with the Bermuda blue cardstock, this card could be sent for so many occasions this winter, inspiring indeed!  Thank you for inspiring us again this week!


The honorable mention, chosen by a DT memberof the Back to School challenge is this gradient Christmas tree card from Coni who was inspired this week by IB186C Cool Holiday.  We love her beautiful tree and then cover-plated with embossed vellum, such a beautiful design and idea.  Thank you for inspiring us this week!


 Congratulations Joanne and Conil!

We can't wait to see more of your cards!

We hope you'll join us in this week's challenge: Hello Fall IB187
