The Around the House Challenge Winners!

I'm here! Posting the results of our super fun Around the House challenge! Thanks to everyone who played! I loved looking at all your projects--I hope the rest of you did, too!

I've had an extremely difficult time narrowing it down, friends. So, rather than leave out 2 stellar cards just so I can keep the winners down to 5, I've decided to go with 7! Can't hurt to go with lucky number 7, can it?

I know you've been waiting all morning for me to post these, so I'll get right to it! Congrats to the following moxie fab designers!

Let's Get Together Card by Catherine (The Dancing Pear)

Moxie Fab Alert: I love the color scheme she's chosen, the fact that the scene is "off" the card, and the sentiment. Doesn't this just make you want to sit down for a long chat with a good friend on that comfy chic couch?

The Write Stuff Card by Karen W

Moxie Fab Alert: I love the execution of this stamped card, the clever way that the punny sentiment comes out from the typwriter roll, and the background is all a perfect complement! Bravo, Karen!

Girlfriend Chandelier Card by Randee E

Moxie Fab Alert: The elegance in this card is simply delicious! The chandelier is gorgeous, the ribbon treatment is divine, and the sentiment is just perfect! Well done, Randee!

Grandfathers Card by NinaB (Croatia)

Moxie Fab Alert: Not only is this a stunning card, the attention to detail is mind-boggling! She scored a strip of white cardstock to make it look like a baseboard! I also love that she's paired a grandfather clock with the sentiment, so appropriate for a Grandparent's Day card.

I'm Here for You Card by Debbie Olson

Moxie Fab Alert: Can you say "stinkin' cute?" Not only does this card have perfect balance in design, a retro-fantastic color scheme, and a darling focal point, but the sentiment is just sweet. I don't know how to say it better--this card is pure sweetness.

It Takes a Long Time Card by Odette

Moxie Fab Alert: This clever girl took one of the images that I used in the inspiration I showed you for the challenge, printed it out, fussy-cut it, and added it to her card. And while she shouldn't "sell" this card without proper copyright permission, it is a great way to utilize a trend in one of your paper crafted projects!

Thank You Sew Much Card by Heidi Van Laar

Moxie Fab Alert: To me, this is a perfect card. All the design elements tie together with the sentiment. Each element has a purpose and they have all been put to a specific use. Put on top of that the fact that it is bright and cheerful and voila! Instant moxie fab!

Ladies, please send me your addresses in an email to cedvalson@papercraftsmag.com with "Around the House Challenge Winner" in the subject line and I'll send you your Moxie Fab World Challenge Winner badges for your blogs as well as work on getting your prize packages out to you. And kudos go to these ladies for making me smile big-time when I looked at their cards: ~amy~, Julie Cameron, Laura, Lynn Miller, and Ryann Salamon!

Friends, I'd love it if you would leave these ladies some love, telling them what you like about their cards. In the meantime, I'm scheming...I've got a new challenge to announce as well as a HUGE event with BIG PRIZE opportunities next week as we countdown to World Card Making Day! You won't want to miss a single minute!

Hanging around the house,

~Cath
