LOUIE Judging Faves + Noted@*Noted News!

Before I delve into my last batch of LOUIE favorites, I have a quick Noted @ *Noted update: The deadline has been extended from today until next Friday, April 10. The Greeting Card Association hopes this offers a chance for more makers to highlight their work, especially any recent designs created in oh, say, the last month or so. At any rate, enter here — and don’t hesitate to give me a shout with any questions that arise.

Now, onto LOUIE judging favorites!
