Not Just Cards Challenge Blog - Challenge 25 and winner of the Blog Hop image

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope that you have had a great weekend and are raring to go for the week ahead.

Today see the start of a new challenge on the Not Just Cards Challenge Blog. The theme is always Anything Goes. This time we had images to work with mine came from Ikes Art.

The image is called Winter Robin. I started with a 7" x 7" kraft card blank I cut all the mats and layers. With the white layer I cut an aperture with an circle die and then I embossed it with the Snowflake Lattice folder by Sue Wilson. I used the Sue Wilson holly dies to cut the holly. I used two of the circle dies to create a frame for the aperture. I created the berries and the corner dots with CS Berry Red PVA. 

If you click on the logo you will get taken to the store there are lots of lovely images to chose from. 

I coloured the robin with Promarkers. I used a brush and some blue ink to colour round the image. Then I made dots with my Versa Mark pen and I heat embossed them with a white powder. 

The sentiment was cut with the Seasons Greetings die by Sue Wilson ( anyone would think I was a big fan). This was mounted on some glitter card. 

Now is the time to reveal the winner of my image from our September Blog Hop. Here is my card as a reminder. 

She is from Star Stampz and called My Sweet Sunflower. I had 39 comments so I put the numbers into a random number generator. Here is the result.

So comment 38 was the winner and that came from Zub Momi. The prize has been claimed and sent. 

I do hope that you have a good week. Why not join in with this months challenge. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
