Random.org was used to select the winner, out of 35 comments (two comments were left by one person so I eliminated one of them to make it fair for everybody), the magic number was...
#12 - Dixie, who said, "Your card is adorable! That is a very sweet image and I love the papers that you have used with it. The layout of your nephew is just wonderful, obviously a labour of love. The details are fabulous!"
Congratulations, Dixie!!! I'll be emailing you soon to request your mailing address so if you don't receive my message, please check your spam folder.
I also have a new card to show you today. I created this card from a digi stamp created by Sandi Huggett, who is one of my wonderfully talented DT sisters at The Outlawz, and also a member of CDAC (Crafters Digital Art Center). I just joined CDAC and I'm participating in their Progressive Freebie Challenges that just started this month. If you sign up to participate, they send you a set of digi stamps to use in your entries and you must submit at least one entry in each successive challenge to continue receiving the free images. If you fail to enter a challenge, you will not receive the next set of freebies unless you buy back in for $1. Several of the Outlawz members are also members of CDAC and it sounded like a fun challenge so I decided to play along. Besides, they are giving away a set of 12 Copic Sketch markers as the grand prize to one person who enters all of the progressive challenges!! Here is my first entry. I have actually used Sandi's teapot and teacup images before and I just love how they look colored with my Copics. I only had 2 days in which to complete my entry before the deadline and since I had some experience coloring these images, I knew I could beat the cutoff. And I did, with a day to spare!
I haven't put a sentiment on the inside yet as I'm uncertain of the occasion I'll use the card for. A special day could be a birthday, an anniversary, a new job, or any other special occasion so I have left it open for the time being.
