The challenge gallery is filled with 
so many fun ideas for 
  Sending and delivering paper hugs. 

OOOOOOOPS!  We have been traveling SO much and I am off a day and posted the winners, based on the amazing entries, a day early!  Please forgive me, we've been on the road and in different time zones and I made a big mistake in days (can't teach an old dog new tricks)

The winner, chosen by a DT member, of the Slip Into Something More Comfy challenge is this summery, fun card from Marcia!  We love her fun flipflops and polka dots, this is going to make her recipient so happy!  Thank you for inspiring us this week!


The honorable mention, chosen by a DT member, of the Slip Into Something More Comfy challenge is this fun card from Stephanie interpreting our sketch this week, and we LOVE her COOL interpretation!  


  Congratulations and Marcia and Stephanie

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


We are taking a card posting break during the month of July, allowing for time for family, sunshine, and traveling.  (With Covid, there hasn't been time for get-togethers and traveling, and we want to make sure our amazing DT has time for both this year, we all need it!)
We have challenges ready for August and will be back with our next challenge on August 5th, we can't wait to see you then!

Inspired By...IB180 Slip into Something more Comfy

Sending and delivering hugs, one card at a time...

We look forward to seeing how the photo inspiration will inspire your paper hug this week!



We absolutely LOVE creating each week with all of you and look forward to the incredibly inspiring gallery each week.  However, in July, our DT members have quite a few obligations and traveling (something we couldn't do last year, and want to make sure our team feels free to travel and meet their obligations), so we have decided as a team to take a card posting break in July.  We have challenges ready to go for August, and can't wait to begin again when everyone is home safely from their travels.  We hope you, too, can travel some in July, get outdoors, get together with loved ones and enjoy the sunshine!  

We will post the winner of this challenge on July 8th, so you have until July 7th 11:55 pm PST to get a card (or two) created for this challenge!


   And now, how are you inspired this week?
                          Summer fun?  Footwear?  polka dots?  Tons of fun color?

Here is how our IB team was inspired this week:
