'Tis the Season for Giving

This is the last Challenge of the year at Crafty Creations Challenges. Our theme is:
"Anything Goes"
and the challenge starts today (Dec 18) and ends January 6. 
Not only are prizes being awarded at the CC Blog, but several of the Design Team members are offering prizes on their own personal blog also (links are at the end of this post).  And, since I love winning prizes, you know I had to offer something.
Leave a comment on this post by 10 p.m. Monday, January 6th and I will randomly select
THREE ~  yes 3 ~ people to each win a
$5.00 Gift Certificate to the Doodle Pantry store.
Use your GC wisely, and you could get 2, 3 or even more digital images/sets, since Doodle Pantry often has a "gift with purchase."
A few weeks ago, I shared a card I made using the Paper Studio Brick embossing folder. I loved it so much, I thought I would use it again with Doodle Pantry's Window Box Wishes set.  The first one uses the "Snow" digistamp. I used the color version but highlighted certain areas with Copics. 
The sentiment on the front is from Stamp Fairy ~ Lenny Christmas Scenes. The sentiment on the inside is from Doodle Pantry ~ Holiday Greetings.

My next card uses the Sunflower digistamp also from Doodle Pantry's Window Box Wishes set.  I lightened the digistamp before printing and used my Copics to color the flowers, leaves and window frame.

I printed one of the digital papers that came with the set (and matches the curtains) to use as the DP for the inside. There's no sentiment on this card because I'm not sure what I'll use it for yet.

I hope you'll join us for our last "Anything Goes" challenge of the year at Crafty Creations ~ I'm amazed at all the talent out there.

Three randomly selected people will each win a
$5 Doodle Pantry Gift Certificate.
Winners will be announced on Wednesday, January 8 and will have one (1) week to claim their prize.
