The 365 Cards Week Challenge Winners

Oooo! I'm so stinkin' excited to show you the winners of our 365 Cards Week challenges, friends! As I was looking through all the entries to the Celebrating Relationships Challenge, the Celebrating Hobbies Challenge, the Pay It Forward Challenge, and the Random Fun Challenge, I couldn't get over the wide variety of approaches and styles that I encountered. In fact, that's what I love so much about our winners' circle today--the wide variety of styles and approaches. Check it:

You Make Me Smile Card by Cathy Fong

Moxie Fab Alert: Bright and fun, this card itself makes me smile!

Dare to Dream Card by Chunyuan

Moxie Fab Alert: Not only does this card have gorgeous design elements, but I love the pairing of a butterfly with the sentiment, don't you?
I'm So Sorry Card by Barb M

Moxie Fab Alert: I don't know when I've seen such a sweet pet sympathy card. The scene Barb has created is so heartfelt, and the wings on the puppy? They just make me say, "Aww."

Your Big Day Card by Chupa

Moxie Fab Alert: What can I say except gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous?

Friends Always Card by Judith Gowdy

Moxie Fab Alert: This card speaks to me on a deep level. It's true, there's something special about that sweet little girl in her cutie hat, but it's the watercolor flowers in the background that really call to me. It's an artful mix of mediums, the girl and the flowers, and the way they are set off by the pink ribbon and the simple sentiment are a perfect finish to this serendipitous card about friendship.

Button Wreath by Sally Sherfield

Moxie Fab Alert:  The buttons in this wreath are the delicious touch that sends this card into the realm of the moxie fab!


Birthday Martini Card by Donna Polley

Moxie Fab Alert: I absolutely adore how understated this card is. The color scheme is elegant, the font is chic, and the martinis look good enough to gulp!

Good Book Card & Bookmark by Jen W.

Moxie Fab Alert: Isn't this just the cutest card and bookmark you've ever seen? I moxie love the fun color scheme, the sentiment is oh-so-true, and if you click on the link, you'll see that the bookmark is a lovely in and of itself.

You're Fun{tache}tic Card by Linsay Amrhein

Moxie Fab Alert: What a marvelous play on words perfectly paired with this playful image! Me likey! A lotty!
