Now your are aware I always jump feet first lol.
I love Priscilla´s card because it makes me want to jump for joy, such a sweet image which is coloured to perfection.
Liza´s baby card is so pretty with this colour combo and I do love her bugged work and tag.
Joey´s card is a project which I would love to try but don´t have the nerve. Who could come up to this standard!!!
All these ladies cards are totally awesome.

I chose:

Dee--because i loved the simplicity of the bag and the way the embossed piece matched the paper.

Kristin--cause those little shoes are adoreable and I had never seen them before.

Paula~ Because the way she did that bib just made the project jump out at me! What a great technique!

Congrats on your new challenge blog!!

OMG! Everything is super fab! I hate choosing! I will have to go with:

1. Kristen... those booties! So sweet!

2. Paula... the bib card! So sweet. It has a bit of a shabby almost vintage style going... love that!

3. Nikki... the trim around the picture just makes it. Again shabby almost vintage flair! Love that!

Hard as it was to choose, super designs from everyone but my fav this time are:

dee... i love your lil chickadee on your bag
line... i just love the box all together!!!
liza... that stamp is ADORABLE!!!!!!

helen said...

oh this is such a difficult choice to make but ok here are my 3 in no particular order

joey; i love this cos it is such a versatile idea and can be adapted to lots of occasions.

Dee; sometimes all the thought goes into the gift and the card when buying for a baby as these are the things most likely to be kept, the wrapping usually gets discarded but this is something that would be kept,

paula; for the imaginative use of a paper punch to create the impression of lace.

such a dificult choice to make as they are all fabulous creations

Oh no, I hate to pick just three, however, that is the challenge so I will share my top 3 in no particular order:

Line: I just love that little exploding box - I've never seen anything quite like it!!

Donna: B/c she used some of my favorite images ever - Mushrooms and Elves!!! It is such a cute new home card.

Nikki: Super sweet and elegant altered frame!

Alisha said...

Choosing just three is quite a task! But, since you insist my choices are:

Priscilla because I just love the crisp clean lines, the colors, the image, the layout...geezers...EVERYTHING!

Joey because I really like creating projects that allow me to alter things and turn them into cute gifts.

Janneke simply because it is such a clever gift idea for anyone expecting a new baby.

kathie said...

hi! so excited for the design challenge to get started. the first set of projects is great but my faves are:
1. Line...the box/mini album is really darling and it could be used for other themes;
2. Liza...for the yellows and the top-down opening;
3. Nikki...a great gift idea with clean lines and i like how she refashioned the frame into something adorable.

Sue said...

Joey - cause that is such a brill idea i can never think outa the box!!her work is amazing.
Line - cause ive never made one n would luv to, its beautiful.
Dee - such a gorgeous bag for new baby.
All of the DT work is beautiful, sue.x

Hege said...

To choose three favorites was not easy - all the members of the DT are very tallented and their projects for this week are all beautiful!
That said, and having looked at all the projects at least twice, I have found my favorites. And they are: (not in order)

I loved Pricillas graduation card. Dancing of joy having received the diploma one is ready to take another step in life. In other words a new chapter is beginning.

Lizas Bundle of Joy card was amazing. I loved the color and all the details!

Last, but not least, Lines exploding box made it to my to three favorites. This box is a keepsake for sure. Since there is left space for both name, weight, length - this box is almost as the babys first book. I would love to get one like this if I were to have a child someday!

Kristin - you already know I am your biggest fan, love love love your work. You always inspire me and I consider myself lucky to be the proud owner of some of your cards! Your little shoes are just too sweet, they are so cute and they just made me smile. Thanks for sharing them with us! Maybe some day you can share just how to make them...if I dare try!

Joey - your little can is so cute! It is such a fun, original idea and something sweet for a new home owner! I might have to give it a try!

Line - I have always wanted to try an exploding box but nothing that I create can even begin to compare with your FABULOUS amazing box! I love it! GORGEOUS!

It was really hard to choose three favourites because they are all so amazing!!
