Challenge #11 - April Fool!

Hello everyone and happy Friday to you!
Before I explain this week's challenge, I would like to thank you all for joining in on the fruity fun! Your entries were so sweet, and I love that the new link system we have showcases everyone's work. Thank you again!
And now on to congratulate the top 3 winners of Fruits Of Labor challenge:

Congratulations Peri!

This card was so cool with the retro/vintage vibe, yet it had all the cool paper piecing and fun DP to accent it. The patterns mix so well together!

Congratulations Stephanie!

What a fun and whimsical card, and a sweet story to go with it. Stephanie made this for her mom who loves tea. And check out that cherry embellishment!

Congratulations Laurel!

This was such a fun entry! I love the clever way she did the apple tree, and all the added details makes me smile!
Ladies please email me so you can join us in debuting next week's challenge. :D

And now for this week's assignment:     
Show us a style that you normally don't do! Ack! A challenge indeed! ;)

  4. Woo hoo, thank you! I can't find your email anywhere, here is mine:

  5. my card is just soooo not me. Thanks for the challenge. I needed a man card.

  6. Don't usually do altered art, here's my creation.

  7. The DT designs are wonderful. I wish that I had time to visit each of their blogs.

    I don't usally make such busy (DP with such big designs) nor do I use fairies... in my cards. I like clean lines and little designs. But, I do like this card and the image.

  8. I need to make a sympathy card and I always end up using just black and white for my card. With your challenge I decided to step out of the box and make my card all Purple. I couldn't resist though I had to add a touch of black. Thanks for the great challenge I uploaded my card to spot #26.

  9. Beautiful cards DT and great Challenge!!

  10. Wonderful cards by the DT and an awesome challenge!!
