Thank you for entering!!

Hello Virginia's View Challenge friends!
I am doing a quick post to thank you for playing our Link-Up party. 
For all the details and linking,  please visit here
There is one rule that I want to remind you...
 That is, to keep the challenge fun and fair, one entry per person please.

(The following two cards are perfect for friend-themed cards. A re-post from my own blog)
I am sharing two cute cards along with the new release over Simon Says Stamp "My Favorite". This release has so many incredibly cute and fun products

I have the pleasure of using Cuddly Crittters which comes with 6 darling images. The designs are clean and crisp--excellent for colorists or non-colorer like me!

thinking about you
I created the panel with Oval Stitched dies (Memory Box). This is another great way to stretch your basic shape dies! The sentiment was stamped with 3 colors with the help of MISTI.  Stamping the panda is the easiest thing as there is no coloring required :)

For my 2nd card, I simply stamped on felt and cut it out. You also can use the stamp and die combo set (see here). Layering this cutie over vellum and pattern paper seems like a good idea.

Hello!!! Come Join the Link-Up Party!

 ....anyone here!? 
Dear friends, I know it has been a while. You are probably wondering what. is. happening. to this challenge blog!? Or perhaps you have completely moved on and started another chapter in your crafting life? The truth is,...I still am enjoying blogging over "Yes, Virginia.." and just don't have the time to manage this challenge blog. However, I sure miss seeing you here!!!
And that is why we are having an impromptu party!
There will be no guest designers...just you, YOU alone will make this party a SUCCESS!

I want to thank you for sticking around. I am still getting many "likes" over our Facebook page
(809 and counting). Honestly, I thought you guys would just "forget about it"! 
In order to keep this blog alive and well, I am hosting a little link-up party!
Would you like a party? Oh yes, you do! 
A prize? Yes, please!

I am offering a crafting prize (stamps and dies over $50 in value) to one of the random party guests. Please feel free to use the following affiliate links to help me fund this challenge blog.
