And the winner is..........

I hosted the July 1st through 15th card challenge over at Just Scrappin' and my challenge was to create a card inspired by this magazine cover:


I really loved the feel of this cover!!! My example was inspired by the hat and I just knew my Lily image from Pink Cat Studios was just perfect for it!!! Here is my sample:


Now, the girls really outdid themselves once again!!!! Here are their cards:

And as always, I just couldn't choose a winner so I submitted their names to the random list generator and the winner was chosen this way:

There were 7 items in your list. Here they are in random order:

1. Cristal
2. Cait
3. Aymee
4. Ally
5. Carol
6. Cherrie
7. Jenny

Hi Karen
Just a little note to introduce myself to you.
I lve your work especially the owls and the Lily girl card.

Look forward to sharing with you in SBS 21
Best wishes Pat


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
