Spark Your Creativity Now! Challenge #5: Anything Goes

Happy, happy New Year, everyone! Oh, the fun of a fresh new year.
And we are starting it off with another Anything Goes challenge.
You are invited to be inspired, create & share any handmade project with us,

(Note: Challenge #4 winner will be announced on January 5th.)

{ Sponsors }

We are excited to have Beccy's Place sponsor our first challenge of 2013.
One lucky participant will win 3 digital images. Fantastic, right?

"Paint, paper, silk, charcoal, clay, wool, fabric, fur… I’ve had my hands on all of it at some point in my life and I’m quite certain I’ll have a half-finished project on my desk and ink under my fingernails on the day I go to meet my Maker! My paper obsession began with scrapbooking in the late 1990s and has since evolved into card-making and digital drawing. There were a few years of decorative painting, teddy bear making and silk ribbon embroidery mixed in there too, and I still dabble in each of those crafts from time to time, but I generally gravitate toward paper, which is versatile and forgiving. I started “doodling” little designs for cards back in 2009, which is also when I started my blog and began sharing my images with other Cardies. From there I progressed to my very own online store selling digital drawings for cards and other paper craft projects."

Another lucky crafter will also win a prize from Pin & Tack Handcrafted Delights.
What's the prize you ask? It's a Micro Clothes Pin Banner Gift Kit!

Pin & Tack Handmade Delights offers handmade boutique treasures, treats & trinkets.
Every item is made in Oregon and shipped worldwide!
