Challenge #10 - Time to Give Thanks (and a Winner!)

We did a random drawing from the names of our October challenge participants. Remember, for each challenge you participated in, you were entered into the drawing. That's up to four chances to win! The winner of this month's prizedrawing is Deborah, please email us your information at so we can get your Stampin' Up! goodies out to you asap! Congratulations and thank you to all of our October participants!

This Week's Challenge
This week's challenge will be to create a Thanksgiving greeting card using Nestabilities die cuts, the Stampin' Up Top Note die cut or a similar die cut from a Cricut cartridge (try the top note look-alike on Storybook). For some of us this was the first time using Nestabilities and it was truly a challenge. Nevertheless, the team rose to the challenge and made the following to inspire you. Come on, give it a try! We have so much to be thankful for!
