I love AndeeCate's colors, the scallops, and the polkadots in this 3x3 card! It is so cheerful!

Notimetostamp's chipboard letter card made me gasp! I love all the patterns and the colors!

I just gasped when I opened up Atomicbutterfly's mini-legal pad planner! What a terrific idea to use the label punch for the tabbies!

Beate's card. . . I just loved it. And this one, too. Two more floral sets that I must add to my collection!

This gorgeous Oregon sunset card by Cambria. I should start planning a visit now!

Nadine's crab card. Just beautiful. And that knot. Wow.

And you know what? I think I want to just add Starofmay to my favorites. I love her scrapbook pages, especially this one and this one.

I think it is a testament to how much talent is on this site that I have looked through all of the cards already posted and half of them aren't even ones that I had already put into my favorites. (Does that make sense?) So anyway, my point is, I get to add more!

love this baby boy paisley card by j-bo

I think the staggered ribbon and the whole idea behind this card by Joan Ness is wonderful.

I love the coloring and the use of the designer paper on this one by One Happy Stamper

This is lovely and a lot of work. Card by Dawn5733

Beautiful color challenge with the designer papers by Terrore3

I think everything Chantal does ends up in my favorites. I was so glad to see her back posting this week.

I have this wheel that Leslierich used and now I want to play with it some more. This card is gorgeous!

I want to CASE this card by Stamptramp72. So cute and simple!

Absolutely gorgeous in its simpliity is this card by joanehartman.

I love teh witch and the dotted background on this card by grammyof2boys.

pretty Christmas card using the designer paper and the holly wheel by luv2homeschool



okay, I think that is it for now. I just have fun doing this!

Emily

I found a couple more...

These two using Hip Hip Hooray by SweetMissDaisy and Mona Lisa
Those are about as cute as they come with all the masking on the first one and the cheerleaders on the second!

This card by stamp_momma is stunning! The coloring is amazing and I love the embossed lino background and the flourishes. Beautiful!

This simple one by Bobbynbrit is just wonderful and making me rethink my Christmas stamp-a-stacks. Might have to CASE this.

I would like to thank you all so much for linking several of my cards again this week. It is just such an honor to think someone would like something I did enough to link it here -- a BIG THANKS to you all!

And I must say, I love this thread, but I hate it at the same time – it is so difficult to pick just a few favorite cards each week. Many, many in my favorites are listed above, but I will add just a couple more:

Michele Klein offers this card that got very few views and comments, and I think it is a STUNNING FALL CARD, super quick to make, using gorgeous papers and ribbon:

http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...p?photo=358544

YLM shared this adorable, square BEST OF CLUCK card that just put a smile on my face. She was either casing or inspired by SweetMissDaisy. In any event, this is such a lovely card:

http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...p?photo=358238

StampinMommyof2 created this AUTUMN BEAUTY about 1 weeks ago, so sorry if it was listed last week. This is just so beautiful but yet relatively simple and easily do-able for this time of year:

I'm really late on this too! I promised DH no more stamping stuff on Sundays, strickly our worship and family day so I didn't get to see this yesterday! err, um, been spending too much time here lately!
Happy Belated Birthday Angie/Anna741 and Thank You for listing my New Neighbor Maggie card! And big thanks to everyone that looked at it and/or commented. The response to that card has blown me away and made me feel just fantastic, thank you friends! BTW the card isn't half as cute as Maggie!!
Most of my favs are already listed but I hv a couple new things to share.
I thought is Color Challenge card by jtkshaw was so pretty, she used all the challenge colors so well. http://splitcoaststampers.com/galler...p?photo=359294
This card by Dawn5377 is monochromatic beauty! Love the details and dimension on this.
