Monthly Challenge Feature

Congratulations to our winners! And also a hearty congratulations to all of the contestants for putting so much thought and effort into their lovely items. I sincerely hope that your customers will appreciate your work just as much.

And so, now we move on to the winners. Lindabutterfly.etsy.com and NanasNikNaks.etsy.com collaborated together to make wonderfully whimsical cards. Using a little of Nanas, creative cross stictching, Linda transformed them into cards. I know, I know, you have already seen the cards and now you want to see more. Well, I will not keep you waiting any longer. Behold, the creative works of LindaButterfly!

Linda is such a talented artist. She works in several mediums to create her artwork. I've seen pencil, paint and photos which have all been beautifully captured by Linda. The really cool thing about her shop is that she uses all of her artwork to make interesting cards- from greeting cards to post cards. She even offers mouse pads and all-in-one gift and card fixes.

Her photography and other artwork range from the beautifully serene (as seen above in this lovely Silver Dew greeting card) to the fun and whimsical (as seen below in this all-in-one gift and card set).

Would you have ever guessed that this adorable kitten on the card, easily detaches to become an everyday magnet to use on your fridge, in your locker or at your desk? Seriously, this is an awesome deal, considering how convenient and CUTE it is.

And I know that you just can't go on without seeing the wonderful works of NanasNikNaks as well!

Nanas works range in different mediums as well. She offers hand knitted treasures, adorably fun cross stitch pieces and even a few beaded works.

Every girl dreamed of being a princess at some point in time. Well now, they can get one step closer with this fun cross stitch piece. You could easily frame this and put it on a wall for a wonderful addition to your princess' room.

And everyone needs an angel every now and then. Someone to watch over us and catch us when we fall a little lower than we expected. This wonderful angel and others can be found in Nanas shop as well so go and check them out now!
