Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage Card Challenge day is here!

Today is the day! I have had so much fun seeing these card as they come in, and have been having a hard time waiting to post them.
For those of you who might have missed the post about this and are wondering what's up. Here's the post, telling all about the challenge. Basically, I sent out three different kit's to 20 people to see what each different person came up with , as far as a card design. I always think it's so interesting to see how everyone designs differently. Using their papers and embellishments in unique ways. We used Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage papers and vintage Images. (because they rock!) lol These images are from the Seasonal Booklet.

If the girls had a blog, I linked to it. (if I missed any of you...please let me know). I may have a few more cards to post later also.
Have fun looking at the different card designs, and check out the girls blogs if you get the chance. They will be posting their cards on their blogs , and I'm sure , telling more about how they made them and different techniques they may have used.
They are all so creative and talented!! Thanks for playing girls!

**** And for those of you who wanted to play this time ,and didn't make the first 20 comments, I'll be doing this again soon...because it was such fun!

The names and blog links are listed UNDER each of their cards
