Paper Sundaes #23 Winner and Top Three

Wow, what a fabulous response to last week's 'Pretty as a Princess' challenge!  We had 107 beautiful entries!  I guess I'm not the only one who likes 'girly' cards :)

You all made picking the top three so difficult, but we finally narrowed it down to our absolute favorites.




If only we did a top 10, there were just so many incredible creations!  Congratulations to all of this week's top picks, please display our Top Three badge with pride.


And now for our winner...

The winner of a $15 gift certificate from Simon Says Stamp, as picked by random.org, is...

#50, Corry!

Corry, please contact us using the Contact Me button in the sidebar by midnight, Sunday July 4th.

We have selected a guest designer from last week's entrants and will be in contact with them via email.  If you would like to be considered for a Guest Designer spot for a future week, don't forget to put GDT after your name in your entry this week!  You still have a few days left to enter this week's Birthday challenge!

Paper Sundaes turns Twenty-One!

Welcome to our twenty-first weekly challenge at Paper Sundaes!  Thank you to everyone who participated this past week - remember to check back on Wednesday to see if you are our lucky Simon Says Stamp Kraft & Blue challenge winner!  In the same post we will also announce our top three winners of our 20th challenge.    


This week our challenge is sponsored by Sassy Cheryl's who will provide this week's random winner with a $10 gift certificate.


Here is what Cheryl has to say:
Hi everyone! Sassy Cheryl here and I’m so happy to be sponsoring the Paper Sundaes challenge this week.
I have been creating graphics and have licensed my work to companies such as Kohl's, Hobby Lobby and Shopko, among others, for over six years. I started creating digital images about ten ago. I absolutely LOVE to draw and always carry a small sketchbook for those times when a bit of inspiration hits.  It's been a lifelong dream to become a working artist, and besides deadlines, I LOVE everything about what I do!  It really helps that I have a very supportive husband and son (they also can be my biggest critics!)
Through the digis I create, I’ve met so many wonderful, talented ladies. The projects they make using my images makes it all worth it. ‘Can’t wait to see what you will create with my Sassy images.
Thanks for playing along this week… happy coloring!
This week's challenge is to create a card featuring "Summer Fun".  We want to see all of your creations that bring to mind the special joys that summer brings. The theme should be apparent in your creation to qualify.


Inspiration from the Sundae Girls:
Danielle - will join us again next week!
