I have this blog as a place to share my creative self -- be it card making, music playing, scrapbooking, altered art, home decor, or whatever direction my art takes me. My dogs are always a part of my home life, so they have to be a part of my blog, too.
A Christmas Card (really!) and lots and lots of WINNERS!!!!
I'm so pleased to be able to announce the winners from Julie's 2nd Blogoversary Blog Hop. I want to thank all my friends who joined the line up, making the hop possible, and all of you who took the time to participate in the hop. I had so much fun! But first, I have a card to share. After all, this is primarily a crafting blog.
DigiStamps4Joy has a Christmas challenge each month. Participants are given a free digi to get us started. Here it is:
Enter the challenge, and then get another free digi the following month. This is the first month I've entered, but I hope to do it each month now so I'll have a few cards done BEFORE the busy season this year. If you'd like to enter the challenge yourself, here's the link.
I kept the design simple so I can easily duplicate it if I want to mass produce it. I printed the digi out on light green paper at 3 inches and gave it center stage on the card. The card base and background papers are all Close To My Heart. The beautiful ribbon is 3 Girl JAM Ribbon from the "Ribbon Candy" bundle.
Now, for all the winners from this weekend's hop. I first want to thank all the many wonderful sponsors. I am overwhelmed with gratitude!

I had promised a prize if I hit "100 likes" on Facebook. I started a page for Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers less than a week ago, and I'm at 77 likes, so I think that's worth celebrating! So, I chose a winner anyway. The first winner I chose is:
Ursula Uphof -- $10 gift certificate to the online store of your choice. (I know Ursula lives in S. Africa, and I don't want to mail a package that far.
So, I picked a second winner for my prize package that is ready to mail. It goes to:
That's it for prizes. Phew! Please email me at julieodil at charter dot net. Or, leave a comment on this post with a way for me to contact you. Any prizes not claimed by March 25 will be re-drawn for.
