  4. Thanks for the challenge. Joyce, I was inspired by your card to use Melanie's Frame.

  5. I just read about your friend....so sorry.....do you think we could send her the cards we make for this Challenge? Everybody loves Happy Mail. (((hugs)))

    1. That is a wonderful idea! If anyone is interested please PM me on Facebook or email and I will send her address.

  6. Those cards are beautiful! I'm sorry about your friend. Thanks for inspiring!

  7. I did not see any cutoff time for entering and when I tried to enter my card I saw it was already closed. When is the cutoff time? It should be listed with the instructions in my opinion unless I did not see it. At least I tried to enter.

    1. Sorry Verna. It was announced last week that it is closing at noon EST now so we can get it posted on time. Thanks anyway!

  8. I think it should be posted on the rules then. That way any new ones and older ones who missed the message like me will be able to work it in perhaps. My computer was not working right either so that prevented me from getting my work all loaded this morning.

    1. Thanks! That is good advice! Once again so sorry
