Card Contest Entries - Losers!

Hi Peeps!

In a huge rush today, so I don't have a lot of time to chat. But I wanted to show you a couple of cards that I made up for a local stamp show that I went to this past weekend. Each day had a different theme. The theme for Saturday was "recycling" and the theme for Sunday was "holiday goodies." I am embarrassed to admit that the recycling theme really had me stumped. But I threw this together, and crossed my fingers that it would fly. Apparently it didn't, because I didn't win. Boo! It features a stamp from Memory Box called Eclipse Tree.

I was, however, totally inspired by the "holiday goodies" theme and went to town. My first card features a stamp set from Waltzing Mouse Stamps called Oven Fresh Gingerbread Joy. My second card features a digital stamp from Whimsie Doodles called Ginger Greetings. I'll have to come back later to add the rest of the source information for you. Suffice it to say, neither of these inspired the judges . . . but that's okay. I had a really fun day hanging with my stamping buddy, Kim, so it's all good.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please come by again tomorrow for another fun Shirley's 2 Girls Twisted Thursday challenge!

UMMMMMM, I can't imagine what the winning cards could even look like. They must have been laced with gold to have beat these out. The tree is a bit iffy but these last two are AMAZING. You are a winner in my book.

Must have been a VERY hot contest, your cards are great. I actually really like tthe recycled one and wonder if the judges thought it looked a bit too good to be truly recycled?

They're winners not losers as far as I'm concerned :)

Well, those judges must be blind to not choose your cards for winners! Your gingerbread card absolutely ROCKS!!!! Your other cards are amazing as well!!!!!
Like Justine said, you're a winner in my book! :)

There is no way these are loses, Karolyn! They are fabulous. I especially love the teapot - the pretty soft colors and that sweet image are terrific.
