And now here are the highlights. The girls in the design team picked an entry to highlight. It's the entry that uniquely impacted us in some way -- a specific technique that was used, the colors, the creativity, or something in it that touched or impacted us.

Maria F. says, "Such an original and perfectly executed take on Thanksgiving!"

Melissa says, "Yumminess! I love the beautiful CAS Mixed Media beauty that Naki created! Her design made me go "OOOOO"....all that white, the texture and the gorgeous gourd and pumpkin. Ahhhhhh! Superb! Makes my CAS-MM-Card-Loving heart go pitter-pat!"

Sanna says, "There is just something about this card that immediately caught my eye - the tulle, the bold colors on the bingo card and the vintage image in the middle of it - interesting combo with a fun, colorful touch and style. Great, happy card!"

Jenny says, "I love the vibrant colours, the embossing to add more interest and the diecut blooms and sentiment."

Shery says, "Love the gold splatters and the texture and the wonderful way Stephanie used leftovers."
