Christmas and Winners!

I've been participating in the DigiStamps4Joy progressive
 Christmas Challenge ever since I made the design team early in 2014.  Each month, if I make a card with the current month's digi, I get sent the next month's digi for free.  Good deal! And fun!
Here's this month's card:

I colored the image with Copic markers and paper pieced their hats.  Plus, I added some Stickles glitter glue to them.  The Christmas design papers are from Echo Park -- Christmas This & That.  The sentiment is from Close To My Heart.
Did you participate in the DigiStamps4Joy Celebration Blog Hop?  Prizes were promised, and today is the day I'm announcing the winners of the ones from my blog.
First, the winner of the Celebration Cake digi:
I used and entered all the comments from the blog hop.  It chose comment #15......
Angela B!  Angela says:  I just love your card! I'm hopping along the blog hop! Woot!
Congratulations, Angela, you win the free digi!  Contact me and I'll send it to you!

Now, for the winner of the $10 gift certificate for the DigiStamps4Joy Store.  Again, using --

Hugs from Africa
