Wow, isn't that title for this post a convergence of threes! Maybe just for giggles, we'll have a top 4 when we get to post 44. Or maybe not – just a wild thought that popped into my tired little brain!
And what a top three we have this time around! We always have trouble picking out three because all members of the design team pick THEIR top three and I have to work from there. This time, while we had lots of different opinions as usual, there was one name that was on EVERYone's list.
But that doesn't mean that each and every project shared for this challenge wasn't wonderful – they ALL are and we appreciate all of you who enter our challenges. I hope those of you who haven't clicked on the links in last week's post will take some time to do so today – it's well worth the effort!
Now for our Top Three for Challenge 33:
Kris Lynch. I just cannot imagine how anyone could look at Kris' project and not say, "Wow!" This picture is just the outside of the Peek-a-Boo Nativity that Kris created with scraps that she never throws away. You have to visit her blog post (click on the picture at the right) to see all the detail behind the doors!
Marlene Peters was also on many of our lists with her Snowflake and Scallop Circle Cards. Yes, it's cards plural! She made the same card with different colors and we were just amazed at how different each one feels. This card is my favorite among the three that she displayed on her blog.
Bonnie Klass shared with us a card that is so simple yet definitely elegant. This would be a great card for a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator to use in a workshop, and a great card for any of us to make when our time is short but we just have to have something well, elegant! The traditional Christmas colors in this card are stunning, again in their simplicity. But we could see this layout used in cards for many different occasions!
