  2. Awesome creative birthday, Christmas, New Year card rolled into one. Thanks for joining us for the Scrappy Moms Terrific Tuesday Challenge.

  3. Hi Melissa! Thanks for playing along with us at CropStop. I understand what you're saying about not trying to stack, but waiting in between days of entering, and just happening to be the next to enter. There's a clear different between stacking intentionally, and just having it happening by chance. I appreciate you bringing it to my attention, but I don't want you to worry about that. I get it. Thanks again for playing along. Our new challenge starts Wednesday, January 13. I hope you will join us again.

  4. A great way to make a child feel special Melissa. The globe is lovely with the sweet bow. Thank you so much for taking time to post your very creative art with us this week at Word Art Wednesday in our 217th- FF AG challenge! Our first challenge in 2016. Praying you will have a Blessed, Prosperous, Peaceful and Creative 2016, Carole
