and now the big announcement you all have been waiting for! The winner of the random drawing for the Big Blog Candy Give-a-way is......CARRIE! Please e-mail me your address and I will get this out to you!! CONGRATS on your big win and I look forward to seeing what you create with this!! ENJOY!!


Last weeks winner for the random drawing for participating is "Blackdragon" Lyn, please send me your e-mail and I will forward "Ronan & Izzy - Summer Fun" to you. Thanks for participating and congrats on your win!

This weeks image is one that I think is very versatile and can be used for many occasions. It works well as a masculine image which is sometimes harder to come by. I am trying to give you a feel for the wide range of images you can expect from me. This weeks image is:

("Beached Boat" is no longer available for free... I am in a process of getting a website up and going to make available to you not only these images, but many more originals by me in digital form and in the near future photopolymer as well... it's all in "the works"! In just hours a new free image will be released)

This weeks challenge is to take the "Beached Boat" image and make a gate fold card with it. For those of you who have never made a gate fold card before or you're not knowledgeable what it is or how to make it, you can find the instructions here. Now, you don't necessarily have to make it this size either. I made mine a little bit bigger. You might want to make your card first and then figure out the size you would like to print your image.

The prize for this weeks random drawing for whoever participates in this weeks challenge and links their work back is:

Also, remember if you don't have a blog/gallery to showcase your work to link it back here, you can e-mail it to me @ magicintheair@att.net and I will post it here for you.
