Well, because of the 2 week break from work we let the challenge run for 2 weeks so there are 2 winners! I don't have the necessary software to capture the random.org pics on this new laptop but the winners are: Amyscrapper #5 and Izuvit #10! Amyscsrapper's challenge will run from Tuesday, January 12-Monday, January 18 and Izuvit's will run from Tuesday, January 19-Monday, January 25. Yay and congratulations to the winners! Thanks to everyone who participated in Loz's New Year's card challenge!

Linda Bowman was the winner of the last challenge and she has created a really fun LOVE LETTERS Recipe for us this week! Use the following 5 ingredients: a Digital Image; Lots of Hearts; Colors Red, Pink, White with just touches of other colors; Some SPARKLE; Use the word LOVE! She has added a RAK drawing to one person who completes this challenge and goes to her blog to leave a link to their creative card. You don't have to become a follower but she would love to have anyone follow her blog!! http://cardchallengesandmore.blogspot.com.

Let's get to know Linda a little better!!

What is your favorite craft medium? Really enjoy my chalk inks and Prismacolor pencils but I just can't live without my Stickles/Glitter.

What is your favorite scrap item/tool? Would have to be my Cuttlebug, embossing folders and Spellbinders dies.

What is your favorite paper line/company? I have t to get my hands on any paper that I didn't love. I guess K&Company, Basic Grey and Bo Bunny would be my favorites.

What is your favorite color(s)? Green and Earth Tones for home decorating and for crafting I like all colors and use a lot of green, pink, purple and blue.

How do you have your scraproom decorated? Colors, themes, homey, contempo, etc.? Pretty much I just go with the comfortable and functional look in my craft room.. I really do have a place for everything so I can find what I want when I want it. My craft room is in the basement with no windows so to brighten things up a bit I have lots and lots of sunflowers for decorations.

Are you an animal person? Do they have a place in your scrap room? I don't have any pets.

What is your favorite Disney movie? I have 6 grandkids and I do enjoy seeing lots of good Disney movies with them. But there isn't one that stands out as my all time favorite.
Do you watch TV/movies white working? I used to watch HGTV shows but now I just listen to the radio because it is less distracting when I am being creative.
Do you get your inspiration from them? I get inspiration from everywhere....nature, fabric, clothing, art and all magazines (not only craft ones) and of course from my blog friends. There are lots of times ideas pop into my head out of nowhere.

Sweet or savory snacks? Both....I really love my chocolate and nuts and usually have a little fix of both everyday.

Scary or Romantic movies? No scary stuff for me. I like a fun and silly romantic comedy or just a good old tear jerker.

Beach or snow vacations? I am really not allthat fond of the winter and cold. I do love the beach when I can get there, but there aren't any beaches in Kansas.

Favorite type of music? Oldies from the 60's to the 80's.

Now! Let's get started on our LOVE LETTERS card and make sure to enter your creation on Linda's Blog!!
