A couple of prizes

I was randomly picked for the prize for challenge 23 on Incy Wincy Designs - yay!! This was for the Happy Birthday Friend card. I've won some rub ons, some charms and a spool of ribbon.

I was also picked as winner of challenge 47 on Crafty Creations - for the Hidden Happy Christmas card. I've won $10.00 to spend at Digi Kitty.

'You are in our thoughts' card

I made this card last night, but didn't get round to showing it.

The challenge this week on Encourage joy is: 'if it ain't broke - don't fix it' - find a card you like and duplicate it in your own way. So I cased one of my own cards, originally seen here, which was inspired by a challenge from Sketch Saturday. In fact, the card was one of my choices for my top 12 of 2009 - why not have a look at this and I'd love you to leave me a comment to show me your top 12 for 2009.

Back to this new card, I used DCWV background paper and also an older piece of DCWV black and white spotted paper that I scalloped the edges.

I used a funstamp ' in our thoughts' stamp and stazon to stamp on white ribbon - 365 day 308: 'stampin' Saturday' - 'For this one, you need to stamp on some ribbon. Stamp a pattern or a sentiment - or both!'

I used a free image from the vintage moth, which I changed to black and white and then duplicated digitally to create the circular 'spotlight' in colour - you can see the 'spotlight' better in the second picture.

The card is also good for the following challenges:

Pile it on 29: 'anything digital' - and this challenge always encourages us to 'pile it on' by finding other challenges for the same piece of crafting
Copic buzz: 'use ribbon' (I used a copic to edge the image background and on the white flowers
Corrosive45: 'these are a few of my favourite things' - use two of your favourite embellishments (flowers and gemstones)
Lucy's cards 3: 'monochromatic' - one colour (pink) along with black and/or white

Our creative corner: 'clean and simple'
Little paper shop 49: 'bright pink, black and white'

Incy wincy 24 'bling it up!!'
My grafico: 'out with the old, in with the new' - the new item is the stamp and the re-purposed item is the sketch/card that I cased
Whimsical Wednesday 17: 'perfect makeup inspiration'
Crazy4challenges 18: 'polka dot fun'

Salt: faith, hope, love

It was Stacy's turn to choose the topic for today's Salt challenge - you can read what she wrote here and also see the beautiful crafting of other team members.

My response to Stacy's challenge is in the form of a digi LO, using part of a download I bought from Designs by Angel. I used some parts of the kit earlier to make a New Year card.

It would be lovely if you could visit Salt and see what the rest of the team have been up to - and perhaps you would like to make something for the challenge this time.
