Last Challenge of 2013! Challenge #52 Anything Goes/Black & favorite color!

Welcome back for our last challenge of 2013!  Challenge #52.  What an amazing year it has been in our neighborhood!  When Chana and I started 613 Avenue Create last January we never imagined that it would be so well received.  We could not have done it alone there are many people who have made this adventure a success.  First, we have the most incredible Design Team members both past and present.  Their hard work and dedication cannot go unrecognized!   Thank you ladies from the bottom of our hearts.  Second, our sponsors who have been so generous and accommodating and we could not have done it without their support. 
 And then there's....YOU!  
That's right, where would we be without our awe-inspiring participants.  Whether you have been with Chana and I since the JDE challenge days or you just moved into our neighborhood, we truly appreciate every one of you who plays in our neighborhood!  You really are extremely talented artists as evidenced by the struggle to choose just one weekly winner!  Your thoughtful and kindhearted comments every week keep us motivated and make us feel oh so appreciated!  So with all of that said let's see who won last weeks challenge!
