Challenge #253--Anything Goes

This is a long post, but well worth the read.  There are lots of ways you can win a prize this week and you don't want to miss something.  But, before we get to all that, we need to pick a winner for a Gift Card Holder.  Our random number generator picked.....#5  Gail Scott!  Congratulations!  Please contact Mary to receive your prize.

This week our challenge is "Anything Goes."  Since everyone is so busy this time of year, we are going to extend the time to submit a challenge.  You will have until January 6th to link your creation to this post.  For this challenge, we are going to have more than one winner.  Jaime is giving a CTMH stamp set away and Heather is going to give away a $5.00 GC to Doodle Pantry.

Along with this week's challenge, we want to say "HAPPY HOLIDAYS" in the form of a blog hop prize give away.  Several of the Design Team members are going to give away wonderful prizes on their personal blogs too.  All you have to do to be entered into those drawings is hop over to their blogs and leave a comment.  Each participating DT member will pick a winner and send out their prize. 

We are so grateful for all of you and love seeing your creations each week.  We are also really looking forward to the new year of challenges.   This will be our last posting for 2013.  Our first challenge of the New Year will be posted on Wednesday, January 8th.  You will definitely want to stop by to see what is new.  Yes, we have a few changes planned and are really looking forward to 2014.

Here is what the Design Team created this week.

#249: Ready for the Holidays- American Thanksgiving or Christmas

Happy Wednesday! We're back with a brand new challenge here at Crafty Creations Challenges! Before we introduce the new challenge, let's look back and pick a winner from last week's challenge: Dies and Punches. We had lots of terrific entries! picked our winner as always...

Congratulations, Kozmikz , you've won the great prize from our sponsor A Day for Daisies. Please contact Jaime for details on how to collect your prize.

On to this week's challenge: Ready for the Holidays: American Thanksgiving or Christmas! Whether it's a last-minute Thanksgiving craft or another Christmas project to add to your growing collection, we'd love to see it! Our sponsor this week is our talented former design team member, Deena, and her Etsy shop A Creative Need.

A Creative Need Digital Art Images opened its doors to fill a need to evolve my creative passions and pursuits!
I have been an artist and crafter for many years, and I enjoy creating in many styles and with different materials.
It is my practical side that led me to using digital images in my own creations. I simply love that they can be so easily resized, flipped, and printed, and they take up no space in my crafting room!
I have merged my love of drawing with my need for realistic images, by digitizing my own pencil sketches. My drawing style is influenced by simple realism, everyday moments and natural beauty. I'm hoping that my images will fill a need in your creative hearts and crafting homes too!
You will find new images every month at A Creative Need, Squigglefly and Can You Digi It?!
I am pleased and proud to be sponsoring this challenge! Thank you to the design team for their wonderful creations, and best of luck to all the participants!
The winner will receive 3 images of their choice from my SHOP.
