Congrats to everyone!

Cat--I LOVED your entry.

And Charla, as this is your 3rd EC, I guess it's time to move up to masters!

Congratulations--and welcome; we've saved your seat.

On We Go!

You know, it doesn't even matter anymore to me if I end up in the top ten. As long as I make it to Joanne's woowoo's, I am absolutely satisfied! :lol:

:D You know, that encourages me :) I really enjoy doing them - and they SO fit my personality :D (and it helps me feel less guilty for how few entries I've been reading lately! ::ducking::)

I jumped out of my chair when I saw I was in the top 15 for beginners!!!

I know I'm late in responding to this; my uncle passed away right after I submitted. God used the encouraging yellow boxes and placing to really lift my spirits during the past week.

I'm already loving you guys and FaithWriters!!!

Congratulations to all the winners! :D

~Thanks~

I've also been remiss in thanking you for the second place ranking in the beginner competition this week (and the ninth place last week). I haven't been registered for forums, so I've been able to read the messages but not respond to them until tonight. But I do appreciate the consideration.

I do have a question, however: Since I wasn't aware I'd be getting the second place ranking until after I submitted last week's Autumn entry, I still put it in the Beginners' area rather than the Intermediate. Will I be penalized for that? :oops: I did put this week's Childhood entry in the Intermediate category.

Thanks again!
Blessings,
Carol

No penalty. That's just what happens when someone wins. Congrats and welcome. :)
