ANNOUNCEMENT: After 6 years of hosting card challenges, our last challenge will be February 4, 2019. It is a special challenge following our very first challenge on February 4, 2013. We will be making cards using Sketch #1 by Denise Gray, the original creator of Cards in Envy. For this last challenge you will have two weeks to create a card following the sketch and share it here in the challenge post with a link to your blog post via Inlinkz. There will be no individual badges awarded for this challenge, rather, we will provide a FIRST CLASS FINAL CHALLENGE Badge for EVERYONE who participates in this last challenge. Thank you so much for 6 wonderful card crafting years! We hope you'll join us for this challenge. ~ Sandy & the CIE Designers

Hang Your Stocking with Care Badge Winners

Thank you to each of you that took the time during the busiest time of the year to create and share your card for our "Hang Your Stocking with Care" card challenge.  The number of entries was low but that does not make it easy to pick badge winners.  All of the entries were wonderful but after tallying the votes, we have our First Class Badge card.

Congratulations #9 Kuni

We loved this adorable, perfectly colored Christmas scene with the cute bear holding his stocking!

Kuni, you may grab the First Class Badge below to proudly showcase on your own blog.
