Winners Announced #21

Good Morning all.  I deeply apologize for getting this up late.  We had some great cards that happened over this last challenge.  Thank you all for participating.

Designers Choice:
This weeks designer was Tiffany and she choose....

Shana Gaff, Tiffany just loved the spotlight technique that you used along with the colors and stamping.  The ribbon and button just finish off that vintage feel.  Thanks so much for playing with us this week.  Head on over to the badges tab to get your badge and fill out your from to claim your prize!  

Kelli's Choice:
Brenda, Kelli just loved how elegant your card feels.  The splash of color give it a nice romantic feel.  Thanks for playing with us this week at Black Tie Fridays.  You can grab the Casual Friday award from the badges tab. Congrats!

Kendra's Choice:
Martha, congrats on winning the Casual Friday award.  Kendra loved the embossing folder you used, the color combination with the ribbon and finished of with a button.  So cute!  Grab your badge from the badges tab, and thanks for playing with us this week.

Shauna's Choice:
Alyssa, Shauna says, I'm in the mood for spring and Alyssa's card really hits the mark. It's colorful and fun. I liked the splash of yellow from her tulips that ties in with the yellow from her patterned paper. The design of her card was a nice change from the typical rectangle card.

We really enjoy your cards/projects and encourage you to keep spreading the word so we can all have more F-U-N!!

Also, since this is up late and the new challenge won't be up until Friday I'll give you all a hint! ink will be used, but a different medium instead.  :)

*While we don't push religion on to any of our players or design team members, we started this site in God's hands, and are currently asking for prayers for Kelli.  She's suffered a great loss of a parent this last week and those who want to partake in prayer for her can lift her up.  

Happy crafting everyone!

Coming Soon....

Hey all, just wanted to let you know we will have a winner soon.

Between an ER trip with stitches for an 8 year old and a life changing event for one of our design team members we are just running a little behind.  Sorry for the inconvenience.  We hope you understand, and we'll be running smoothly again soon.

Thanks for your patience,

The BTF Design team!

Apparently we had some link issues this week.  Not sure why it wasn't working?  But thanks to those that posted their links in the comment section and played along with us.
