2009 may be behind us, but the prestige of being a winner of our World Card Making Day Card Contest lives on. Since we just announced the winners in our new March/April 2010 issue, I thought I would take the opportunity to spotlight these talented card makers once again.  

With 936 submissions, narrowing the field to 20 winners in five categories was a huge challenge. Kudos to these ladies for making the final cut. We’re proud to publish your winning cards in the magazine (p.82) and honor you here.  

Let’s roll out the red carpet for: 

Birthday category: 

  • Terri Davenport (Toledo, OH)
  • Ann Marie Pultorak (Romeoville, IL)
