For this final challenge of 2013, we are so excited because Penny Black is our sponsor and wait til you see what the prize is!!!
But keep reading........ this is also our final challenge for the Big Giveaway. For those that have entered every challenge since the first one which was July 15th up through this one, their name is entered in a drawing for the giveaway. Charlie, Anita's son, will draw a name and that lucky lady will get the big prize. But never fear, the other six ladies will also get a prize of some sort...........how cool is that???
We started out with 19 ladies signing up for the prize and have had some drop out......but we have 7 that have stuck it out and I wish them all luck in the drawing.
So good luck to Alli, Angelique, Croms, Emily, Erin, Jackie, and Jayne ..... what happened to the second half of the alphabet!!! LOL
So now I would like to show you the Penny Black prize for this week's entries. Remember, EVERYONE entering this week is eligible for the Penny Black prize as long as you follow a couple of rules. You can enter our challenge up to 3 times, but you cannot enter your project in more than 10 different challenges, including this one. And if there is a theme, you must use it! And you must link your project back to us with your actual blog post and not the blog address.
A lucky winner will get these stamp sets for winning this week's challenge. What a great way to start your Valentine cards!!!
And for the 7 ladies entered into the Grand Giveaway, here are just some of the things you can expect to receive if you are the winner!
And this week, both Teams A and B are showing off their cards!
For my Christmas card, I used Penny Black clear stamp images. They are from the set Joy to the World. I love this set and it is my first time using it. The cat and dogs just look so happy, don't they?
Here's my card!
I used copic markers to color in my two images. I wrote the colors down, but seem to have misplaced the piece of paper I wrote on. So sorry about that!
The sentiment is from the Penny Black set, also. I mounted it on matching cardstock and attached a couple of brads. I then popped it out with pop dots.
I used a border die from Spellbinders to make the scalloped border around the larger image. Background paper is from my stash.
Diamond Stickles (my favorite Stickles) was used to add some snow here and there.
Here are some challenges I am entering:
All That Stickles - Happy Holidays and Stickles
Make it Monday - Comment
Creative Corner Challenge - Favorite Color Combos
Color Me Creative - Holiday
Corrosive Challenge - Anything Goes
Sentimental Sundays - Non traditional Christmas colors and sentiment
Love to Create - Anything Goes
Hope you will play along this week!!
