Blog Candy Winner, and Combined Challenge Card

Happy Tuesday everyone! I'm sure you're all anxious so I'll get right to the winner of the Blog Candy! It's not very often that this happens... in fact, on a lot of blog candy postings that I see there are people that hate being one of the first to post because it seems random numbers are never small numbers. But today, someone got lucky because here's the random number...

and the winner is Jane Wetzel! Woo hoo! Congrats, Jane! A $15 gift certificate at Joan's Garden will be waiting for you to use!

I had the day off work on Monday and did some blog surfing in the morning, and discovered a couple of challenges that are new to me, so this card combines two of those challenges. Mary Jo Price-Williams has a sketch challenge every Monday, and since I love round cards I decided to give it a try. And Rachel Hope from Hope Stamps Eternal has a Cupcake Inspiration challenge that looked interesting, so I used the cupcake as inspiration for this card. Check out the cupcake on her blog... it looks absolutely yumma-licious, but too pretty to eat!

And yesterday was the 15th so that means another Copic Creations challenge! This time around the challenge is coloring wood, so this new stamp I got recently from DRS Designs fit the bill perfectly! I colored my wooden bucket with the W1, W3, W5, and W7 Copic markers. This card also fits the Our Creative Corner challenge this week to use your border punches!

Check out all the details for the Copic Creations challenge by visiting our blog. If you participate, you are entered for the chance to win a fabulous stamp set from Unity Stamps. Angela has generously donated 4 stamp sets, so there will be 4 lucky winners! You'll find further inspiration from the other Copic Creations team members at the blog, too!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope your week is off to a great start!
