All four winners will be announced on Sept. 14, 2013 on the Mark's Finest Papers blog. You can go back and comment if you missed a day.

Here's the Design Team:

I love this set because it has great masculine images and a banner. The banner is just one banner with different words that can be stamped in it. This banner could and will be used as a Birthday Party banner on future cards. I will stamp Birthday and then have the Party in the banner. On the inside of the card I will print up the party invitation! You could also have it be a Thank You card for gifts you received on your birthday. There are many uses for the banner and I am looking forward to playing! Great set!

This week's cards in review!

For the Thrifty Stamper column on we focused on plastic ribbon masking

Today's Tutorial Time challenge is this darling shoe!
This week's Themes from the Orient column and tutorial are about Oriental Weaving.
Heavens to Betsy! I just realized I used the same butterfly image on all these projects! Thank goodness I colored him differently!  I made these at different times weeks apart. You'd think I only had a few stamp sets! heehee

So many gorgeous projects to share with us today! You made me smile regarding your use of this particular butterfly. I have my favorites too, that I tend to go back to! I love how you added grass to your grill scene! Super pretty colors on your sports card and wow, the shoes are amazing!!! I am going to have to go check out the oriental weaving tutorial. It's beautiful!
