(In numerical order)

#11 ~ AJ
I just love this funny little image!
AJ has some super coloring and shading skills
and nice touch tying it all together with the coordinating ribbon.

#20 ~ Sherri
Sherri's card is just so stinking cute!
I'm a sucker for puns and the sentiment got a chuckle from me.

#39 ~ Ann
Ann created the most adorable autumn scene!
The ink distressing is so appealing and gives such great dimension
as well as the popped up wood grain frame. Ann, you have a great eye for detail!

#41 ~ Chriss
Chriss' little Halloween box card is just spook-tacular!
The chalk shading really makes the die cut details stand out
and that patterned paper on the back... what a great choice!

#46 ~ Ria
The layers are so appealing, especially the background print.
What fantastic coloring and the stitching was the icing on the cake. Well done Ria!
