Winner and DT Favorites: Challenge No. 11

Welcome, bloggers! We had a fantastic turnout last week! 146 entries! WOW! I'm somewhat speechless!
Before we get to the winners, I want to offer my most sincerest apologies. I had some personal business come up this week that kept me from Blogland. I was not able to comment on each and every one of our entries and for that, I am so sorry! Please do not think that I did not view your card because I did look at each and every one and admired them. It's a long and complicated story; however, I did comment on as many as I could remember to comment on. There were still a few asking me to prove I was not a robot and I did not stop to comment on those but for the rest... it was just a difficult task for me this week. If any of you are my friends on FB and read my posts, you surely understand my lack of follow through on the commenting and again... I am so very sorry! Please know I appreciate each of you who plays along with us each week and I did view and ooh and aah over all the cards!
We use to pick our winners. Our sponsors last week were Crafty Sentiments Designs with an offering of THREE digis and My Whimsical Little World offering TWO digis.
For the Crafty Sentiments Designs prize, chose:
Please put IDCB Winner No. 11 CSD in the subject line. 
AND, for the My Whimsical Little World prize:
Please put IDCB Winner No. 11 MWLW in the subject line.
Congratulations! Please send an email to within 7 days. We will provide you with info on how to collect your prize. Help me out a little, please. I send out images for another challenge blog plus sponsored challenges and I get so confused when someone emails me with the subject line 'Winner'! Ssooo, please, being specific helps so much! :) Be sure to grab our badge from the right side bar to proudly display on your personal blog! Thank you so much for playing along with Inspiration Destination!
