Thank you all so much for participating on my first “Around the World” Challenge! All the submissions were great! I would also like to thank you all for voting and testing the Inlinkz voting tool.

#1 Winner is Tina. Congratulations! your card is so sunny and warm! It makes me want to travel now! I didn’t know Tina’s work up to now. I visited her Flickr gallery and her blog. She is very talented. I already have some favorites from her cards. Check this and this! Tina you are the lucky winner of the $25 gift certificate from I’ll contact you by email.

The rest of the winners were already blog friends of mine.

#2 Winner is Yes!Virginia… Her card is so Greece! Love these embossed white houses. She has captured the feeling, the colors and the shapes of the inspiration photo! What can you say about this talented lady? Every card she makes is better than the other. Here is her Flickr gallery and her blog. Not only she is talented but is has a really warm heart. I’m sending you lot’s of hugs.

#3 Winner is Donna Mikasa. When I first saw this card I was amazed! So clever to pick up the shape of the church and make it an umbrella! And the colors? So blue … just like Greece’s sea and sky! Have you ever seen her cards? I admire her coloring technique. I wish I was living next to you Donna so I could come and watch you while you are coloring. She has the talent to make great color combinations and copics are a second nature to her! Her cards are the cutest. Check her Flickr gallery and her blog.

A big THANK YOU to all my blog readers for making this challenge possible. I hope you’ll find this week’s photo as inspiring!
