Thank you so much for last week's entries. Sorry I've been quiet, but we are away for the week celebrating our silver wedding anniversary (go home tomorrow, Sunday).
Before I tell you about this week's challenge, I need to let you know the winners of challenge 282. There were five opportunities to win a prize.
Please note that I publish the prize winners here and on our facebook page, but don't notify winners individually - it is up to you all to check to see if you have won and email me as requested. There are one or two unclaimed prizes, so it's worth having a look back to see if you were a winner.
Lozzy is the leader of A bit more time to craft challenge blog and also More mixed media challenge blog and will generously give the randomly chosen winner their choice of three sets of papers from her wonderful selection.
The fourth sponsor is Lacy Sunshine:
She began to express herself creatively through movement at a very young age.
For many years she studied dance, being drawn to forms that allowed creative self expression, all the while feeling this constant urge to create with her hands. The canvas is now her dance floor where color, beauty and drama are expressed through her every pencil sketch and brush stroke. Her subjects vary from fairies, fantasy, mermaids, vampires, dragons, wildlife, abstract and more. She is one who is inspired in a single moment. Her dreams, moods and the the unfolding beauty of the world around her is what charts her dance for the day. She is most alive when sketching and painting, creating timeless pieces that reflect her heart and soul. Drawing breathes life into her soul- it enables her to reach out and touch lives. This gives her a place in the world one character and painting at a time.
Heather's artist portfolio has expanded to include such clients as Pepsi, Outback Steakhouse, Nabisco, Zephryhils and can now be found at Laguna Art, Third Stone Art Gallery and Sausalito Art Galleries, along with commercial and private collections across
Her latest foray is to immortalize her popular drawn characters Eleanor and Pickles in a children's book of their own.
The prize for the randomly chosen winner will be three digis of choice from the Lacy Sunshine Shoppe.

Please look down the sidebar on the right to see all of the sponsors giving out prizes during this year - quite a few new ones as well as others who have been giving generously in the past. I am so thankful for everyone coming on board to support me.

I used one of Lozzy's Christmas papers (kindly provided by Lozzy as one of our sponsors) for the background of my card, wrapping some beautiful organza sparkly ribbon around some deep blue mirror card and adding a pyramage picture from Kanban bought years ago. The sentiment was computer generated and printed. For more info about the card please look here on My Crafty Outlook.
Now it's over to you. As usual, you can use any materials, any techniques - and this week the challenge is to use a sentiment on your Christmas creation.
