My Craft Spot Blog Hop Winner!!!

Hey Ya'll,
Well, the My Craft Spot Release Party was a HUGE success!  Thank you all SO much for visiting and commenting.  All of us on the design team and Kimberly are so excited and can't wait to see what you all make with your new goodies!  Well, it's Tuesday... which means... WE HAVE A WINNER!  Well, you are just going to have a wait a bit because I have a project to share with you today.  Hee! Hee!  This is a card that I made using the new stamps and ribbons from My Craft Spot as well as the new Santa's Village Imagine cartridge.
 As many of you know, I really like to break from tradition when it comes to designing things and when I saw this train, I immediately knew what I wanted to do with it.  This paper is from a really old stack that was all blue and chocolate colored.  This clock paper reminds me of the old train stations with all of the clocks on the wall.  I used My Craft Spot stamps for the Dec 25th and Believe.  I used Cranberry and Green Crinkle Ribbon for the bow and across behind the label shape.  I used CTMH Art Philosophy for the shapes and Santa's Village for the train with all of it's layers.  Anywhere in the image that had snow, I used crystal stickles on.  I used the daisy cuttlebug quilling kit for the little flowers in Christmas prints and used the Martha Stewart branch punch for the greens.
I popped all of the layers of the cuts to really make it all stand out.  I forgot to shoot a picture of the inside, but it has the same mats as the front with a white sentiment mat.  Everything is inked in Chocolate Ink and I used another My Craft Spot stamp for the sentiment inside.  I was really excited with the way this card turned out.  I sure hope you all like it as it's really unexpected for Christmas, but that's really what I liked about it.  Hee! Hee!

Ok... enough stalling.  I am so excited to announce today's winner who will get my favorite of the My Craft Spot release stamp sets, Merry Christmas.
And the winner is..........
