Amber Ink - Passing the Torch

I can't believe it is that time already. My month as the orange torch bearer for Amber Ink has just flown by. Now it is time for me to pass my Amber Ink torch on to the next person. Anita Madden of Just A Pigment of My Imagination will be running with the orange torch for the next month. If you do not know Anita, I encourage you to check out her blog. Her beautiful projects always blow me away. Seriously, go check out her blog.
Following, you can see all hand offs of the Amber Ink torches:

From Keva Brown @ to Amy Everson @

From Jen Lee @ to

ORANGE: (this is me)
From Cheryl Gorka @ to

This is a recap of my projects over the last month. And I need your help....

...I need to send in one project to Amber to use for trade shows, conventions, etc. but for some reason I just cannot decide which one to send. I thought I would let my blog readers vote to decide which card to send in. So if the voting gadget works, you should see a poll below. Please vote for your favorite Amber Ink card from the ones above and I will send the winner into to Amber.

Thank you to Amber and Pam for allowing me the opportunity to be a torch bearer. I really enjoyed it. They are wonderful to work with and have an amazing sense of humor and fun.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Please give Anita a warm welcome to the Amber Ink team. I can't wait to see her creations over the next month.

That was hard to choose. Your coloring in the racoon card is amazing but the fan mail is more my style so I went with that one. :)
Gina said…
I have enjoyed seeing all your Amber Ink cards, it was hard to pick a favorite though!

You were a great torch bearer Cheryl. I love them all, I can see how it was hard to decide.

They are all so cute, so voting was not easy, no wonder you can't decide. :)

You did a GREAT job Cheryl!!!!
I love the raccoon one the best but really - all of them are fabulous!!!!!!!!!!
Anita said…
Cheryl, thank you for passing the torch on to me and also for the sweet comments you made about my blog.

They're all great, but I have to say, the raccoon card is my fave!
Pat (mspfd) said…
These are all outstanding cards! I have to say that my eye was immediately drawn to your "Cutie Pie" card and that's the one I voted for, but any of the cards would look fabulous on display.
Georgia Ehrmann said…
They are all wonderful! Your creations are amazing!
Tammy said…
They all are fantastic Cheryl!! I do love the little raccoons!
Fiona said…
I adore the raccoons.....maybe because we don't have them in England! Their little bandit faces always make me smile.

The 'Torch Bearing' is a great scheme :) Glad you enjoyed your time in the spotlight.

All your cards are just beautiful, Cheryl! I know it will be hard passing on the torch but what a wonderful cache of cards you've created! You have done Amber Ink proud :) That was a hard vote! But I gave you a vote - good luck on the decision making! :)
Okay I voted. Did you want us to put our choice here after or just rely on the voting box? I can say I was having trouble deciding myself. The two I nailed it down to were neck and neck. But made the choice. They are all amazing! ;-). Can't wait to see which one it will be!
These are all gorgeous Cheryl!! I can see why it is hard to decide!! Your coloring, images, and design are gorgeous!!
