Blog Candy Winner!

Hello and Happy Friday!!!



Today's post is for a challenge at the Doodle Pantry Challenge Blog. The challenge was a sketch challenge. We have the option of using the fancy or more simple sketch. Well, you know me - nothing is ever easy! I decided to make a set of cards, and to use both sketches!



Here is my card set. I used the fancy sketch for the card box lid,
and the more simple sketch for the note cards.


Digi image on all pieces, and sentiment on box lid from The Doodle Pantry - image found here.
All coloring is with Copic markers. Sentiments on cards are Hero Arts. Butterfly punch is Martha Stewart





Here is a close up of the center of the lid. Note that the petals and leaves are curled for a bit of a 3-D look.Box side view.





I hope you like them!



A few days ago, while in sunny Florida, enjoying LOTS of ball games, I posted up some blog candy! I asked for you to list your favorite ball team when you left a comment. Thanks to all of you who commented! Since I am not computer savvy enough to figure out random org., I simply put your names in a hat and drew! If you were a follower, you were put in the hat twice!


Drum roll, please.....


The winner is:
